Computer Forensics and E-Discovery Tool Awarded Two Patents

Share Article

SunBlock Systems has developed a tool that will make data recovery and electronic discovery fast and easy, removing the complexities often associated with e-discovery and computer forensics.

We were thrilled to be awarded these patents

BitFlare, an automated e-discovery tool from SunBlock Systems, has been awarded two patents by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patents confirm that BitFlare uses a one-of-a-kind process for the often complex computer forensics and e-discovery process.

"We were thrilled to be awarded these patents," says David Sun, President of SunBlock Systems. "They verify that BitFlare is a unique product that uses a unique pay-for-results approach to computer forensics and e-discovery. We designed BitFlare to be a cost-effective, easy-to-use alternative to the often expensive and time-consuming computer forensics and e-discovery process. Unlike traditional tools, BitFlare allows non-experts to reliably identify, preserve, and collect electronically stored information and forensically preserve copies of hard drives for free. Costs are only incurred once information is found, resulting in big savings. Just as importantly, BitFlare reduces the time involved with computer forensics and e-discovery; users can triage, rule out, and prioritize computers, which dramatically speed up the process."

BitFlare may be used across an unlimited number of computers simultaneously, allowing for greater processing power when numerous custodians are involved. When responsive documents are identified, the user can select and purchase an Evidence Discovery Pack (EDP) online through the BitFlare ecommerce enabled website. The EDP extracts the documents and preserves them for further analysis, and an automatically-generated chain of custody log allows independent validation of the searches and results. All these capabilities are available at a fraction of the cost using traditional tools.
