“This is a big win for SCG and especially for our customers, who will benefit from Paragon’s technology to accelerate digital intelligence collection, minimize imaging times, enhance compatibility with exFAT systems and build upon the value of CFID.” -- Brent Salo, President, SCG Canada Inc.
IRVINE, Calif., and OTTAWA, Ontario (PRWEB) December 12, 2018
Paragon Software Group today announced that SCG Canada Inc., an Ottawa, Ontario-based manufacturer of forensic tools for use by military, intelligence and law enforcement agencies, has selected Paragon’s award-winning technology to support the latest release of its Covert Forensic Imaging Device (CFID).
As SCG’s flagship offering, the CFID is the world’s smallest handheld battery-powered, forensic collection and imaging device. A highly specialized tool used for digital forensic imaging, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) exploitation and mobile device extractions, the CFID now features Paragon’s File System Link (FSL, previously known as UFSD) technology.
“Our innovative CFID product is driving growth for SCG as more customers recognize how we can augment their computer forensic initiatives by offering them an alternative solution to the larger, more costly options,” said Brent Salo, President, SCG Canada Inc. “This is a big win for SCG and especially for our customers, who will benefit from Paragon’s technology to accelerate digital intelligence collection, minimize imaging times, enhance compatibility with exFAT systems and build upon the value of CFID.”
SCG Canada is licensing Paragon’s Mobile Storage SDK to add improved exFAT support for its existing CFID companion application, which can be installed on any Android tablet or smartphone to quickly view flight logs from UAV devices such as drones. This CFID Viewer app, along with the CFID, is also embedded with Paragon’s File System Link technology, which allows customers to immediately access and store data to file systems such as exFAT, NTFS and FAT32.
The CFID provides military, intelligence and law enforcement agencies a simple, small and inconspicuous tool for rapid forensic imaging of portable media, SIM cards, iOS and Android devices, UAV flight logs, both active and deleted files, and much more. It reduces time on target for frontline personnel by quickly analyzing and copying all relevant stored files from any unknown captured device.
With Microsoft’s proprietary NTFS (New Technology File System) increasingly being employed by forensic investigators for evidence storage, the need for NTFS-compatible file system drivers like Paragon’s FSL – with the capability to deliver higher speeds compared to standard Linux implementations – is growing, according to Tom Fedro, President, Paragon Software Group Corp.
“SCG Canada is a thought leader and innovator in the data forensic space with a break-through product line,” said Fedro. “We’re very proud to have been selected to support the next-generation CFID solution and bring added speed, performance and enhanced capabilities to their customers.”
Paragon’s FSL technology provides rapid, transparent and full read/write access to non-native file systems such as exFAT, NTFS, FAT32, HFS+, APFS, ReFS under Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, QNX and other platforms. Paragon File System Link for Android products are a valuable enhancement for Android app developers, providing external storage support so end users can access and use files from any USB flash drive or SD card directly on their Android devices.
