“Another release to deliver on our promise to offer the best Mac OS X and iOS forensic platform,” commented Derrick Donnelly, CTO and Co-Founder of BlackBag Technologies. “We encourage clients to treat iOS devices as they would traditional Macs given the dramatic similarities in operating system and files structures and types. This latest release offers users a comprehensive solution for doing just that, analyzing the entire family of Apple products through one forensic lens.”

“With the increasing adoption of Apple computers and mobile devices it is important to have a forensic analysis tool you can rely on to properly handle Mac OS X computers, iPhones and iPads,” offered Bruce Hunter, a Detective at the Guelph Police Department in Ontario, Canada. “As an investigator I never know what I am going to encounter and one tool will never do everything which makes this product so unique in that it was specifically built to handle OS X and iOS forensics.”

BlackLight was released by leading forensic examiners as a tool to ease the load on overburdened examiners using antiquated tool sets. BlackLight offers both novice and experienced users a comprehensive forensic platform for carving, searching, analyzing, and tagging suspect data while simultaneously building a unified case report.
