AccessData Extends Usability of Market-Leading Mobile Forensics Software and Unveils New Version of MPE+ Software

Mobile Phone Examiner Plus Investigator is a stand-alone review platform for mobile device collections using MPE+; also released is an update to MPE+ (v4.7) adding full physical support and decryption of iOS 4x and 5x as well as physical support of Android devices

LINDON, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AccessData Group has announced Mobile Phone Examiner Plus (MPE+) Investigator, a new free product that extends the investigative power of its MPE+ solution. Designed to run on PCs, MPE+ Investigator lets attorneys, case investigators and others who may not have advanced forensics expertise and don’t need the comprehensive functionality of MPE+ access the information collected via MPE+ as they develop their cases. In addition, Investigator lets prospective customers test drive MPE+ to learn first-hand the many benefits of the software.

“We’ve heard from organizations, as well as current users of MPE+, that they wanted to demo our MPE+ prior to purchasing, and Investigator is designed to do just that,” says Lee Reiber, Director of Mobile Forensics at AccessData. “We also saw the need to allow users that may not have a forensic background a way to access the information collected by MPE+ in a safe, sound and easy to use medium. MPE+ Investigator lets them sift through and review the data rather than spend time requesting forensics experts to extract specific mobile forensics information and deliver it to them.”

With MPE+ Investigator, users can import AD1 files collected with MPE+ and review, carve, export or print the collected data. The free software enables a variety of data views that isolate evidence collected by the examiner and makes identifying pertinent data more accessible. MPE+ Investigator is available now for free download from AccessData’s web site.

AccessData also unveiled an enhanced version of MPE+, v4.7. Among the many upgrades is full physical support and decryption of iOS 4x and 5x as well as physical support of Android devices.

With support for more than 3,500 phones, MPE+ enables examiners to perform advanced mobile forensics analysis without having to purchase an overpriced suite of modules. It integrates seamlessly with the leading computer forensics technology, AccessData® Forensic Toolkit® (FTK®). This integration allows investigators to correlate evidence from multiple mobile devices with evidence from multiple computers, thus further increasing the efficiency and efficacy of digital forensics examiners.

MPE+ Tablet lets field examiners preview, acquire, and analyze evidence right at the scene of the device seizure. The MPE+ Tablet comes preconfigured with MPE+.

Both MPE+ Investigator and MPE+ v4.7 are available now.
