Top 10 Digital Forensics Solution Providers - 2019

There has been a continuous evolution in the IT world when it comes to cloud-based applications and deployments. The latest round of cloud computing forecasts by leading IT companies and market research firms all show how rapidly cloud is, and will be, adopted in coming years. Content is more distributed than ever, and forensics investigations will not only involve a single isolated piece of hardware, as it used to be, but rather a set of logical and physical entities, using a wide range of unceasingly changing technologies and devices. These tremendous technological shifts in data, services, and resources usage and consumption make forensic investigations more complicated than ever.

Another huge challenge for forensic investigators in these setups and environments is to obtain evidence using forensically acceptable methods so the evidence can be admitted according to the law in the trial. The forensics investigator should also be aware that laws might vary across borders—in the case of dealing with the cloud. Evidence admissibility requires a lawful search and the strict adherence to chain of custody rules including evidence collection, preservation, analysis, and reporting. The process of acquiring the data is indeed often more scrutinized than the actual evidence recovered for a criminal investigation.

It is hugely important for the forensics toolkits developer, as well as the forensics investigator, to develop and update their understanding of the way these new systems and components work, the features they possess, in addition to the appropriate methods and tasks to perform while dealing with them on a forensic basis. And thus, to help business providers select the best, most promising digital forensics solution, Enterprise Security Magazine, in conjunction with a distinguished panel of prominent marketing specialists and analysts, and our very own editorial board, have assessed and shortlisted companies who offer pioneering technology solutions in the digital forensics industry. This listing gives a comprehensive understanding of solutions that can be implemented to optimize your business process.
