Belkasoft announces a major update to its digital forensic solution, Belkasoft Evidence Center. With newly added File System and Scripting modules, version 7.0 enables the analysis of file structures of computer hard drives and disk images, mobile phone backups, images and chip-off dumps, as well as many virtual machines. With this major update, Belkasoft Evidence Center becomes one of the major players in the field of digital forensics.
Thanks to the new scripting engine, Belkasoft Evidence Center 7.0 becomes infinitely extensible with Belkasoft and third-party modules. A number of newly released modules with a total value of $600 is available for existing customers at no charge. This special offer is valid until the end of 2014 to all new and existing customers with non-expired floating licenses for Belkasoft Evidence Center Ultimate with Case Management.
Additional improvements in Live RAM analysis enable convenient extraction and analysis of processes, while the newly added hex viewer enables binary analysis of any file on the disk, disk image or memory dump.
In addition to newly extended functionality, Belkasoft Evidence Center continues to deliver extensive acquisition and analytic support out of the box, discovering evidence in many popular formats such as email, documents, mobile apps, SQLite databases, registry and system files, internet chats and social networks, pictures, videos and many more. The number of supported evidence types in Belkasoft Evidence Center 7.0 exceeded 500.
Computer and Mobile Forensics with File System Explorer
Version 7.0 is a breakthrough update of Belkasoft Evidence Center. With this update, Belkasoft Evidence Center turns into a fully featured forensic analysis suite covering both computer forensics and mobile forensics. The new File System module enables seamless discovery, extraction and analysis of evidence stored on computer hard drives, forensic disk images, and in many virtual machines. In addition, the new module now fully integrates mobile data sources including mobile backups and forensic images, chip-off dumps and offline backups.
The ability to discover, process and analyze information from multiple sources within a case in a single forensic product adds major convenience to digital investigations.
Truly Expandable with New Scripting Engine
The new scripting engine in Belkasoft Evidence Center enables limitless extension possibilities with add-on modules. Additional modules may add product features and extend its functionality while fully integrating into the user interface and enjoying full access to raw data and extracted evidence. A number of ready-made scripts are supplied with full source codes in simplified C#, allowing customers quickly implement certain routines or automate daily tasks, saving even more time during the investigation. To give an example, one of the sample scripts implements custom carving using a pre-defined signature. The new scripting mechanism makes it easy to share and exchange custom scripts.
New Hex Viewer Enhances Low-Level Investigations
The newly added hex viewer allows investigating all types of files on the disk, database records, or processes extracted from volatile memory captures (RAM dumps) on all supported platforms. The hex viewer supports custom searches and bookmarks, making low-level investigations easier and more convenient. As a result, investigators can view files located on computer hard drives and forensic disk images, as well as files stored in mobile backups or available in chip-off dumps of various mobile devices. Tightly integrated with Live RAM analysis, the new hex viewer allows viewing processes and data extracted from live RAM dumps.
