Even if no forensic analysis is necessary at the time of submission, we can forensically acquire digital devices to preserve the data for later use.
Where most digital forensics labs stop, we take it to the next level. Flashback Data can get data from devices that most labs just set aside. We use several advanced techniques in our data recovery lab to assist our forensic investigators with their investigations when our standard forensic tools either do not support a device or cannot get past a passcode-locked device. We have developed techniques to work with the Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) pins on a particular device to do this.
Without access to the memory through JTAG, a Flashback Data digital forensic investigator employs chip-off recovery techniques. Chip-off recovery is a more invasive but successful method of recovering digital evidence through the device’s flash memory. These methods often prove particularly helpful to law enforcement in criminal justice cases.
