  • Cellebrite announces the launch of the UFED Touch, a high-performance solution for investigators to extract and decode digital evidence from mobile devices
  • The UFED Touch offers the most advanced mobile data extraction and decoding capabilities on the market for law enforcement, military and intelligence, corporate security and e-discovery industries

Cellebrite, the leading developer and provider of mobile data forensic solutions, has today announced the launch of the UFED Touch, a high-performance solution for investigators to extract and decode digital evidence from mobile devices including smartphones, legacy phones, portable GPSs and handheld tablets. With an exclusive compact form factor and touch screen, the UFED Touch is designed for speed, usability and portability in the field, yet builds on the UFED brand’s solid reputation and unrivaled device support.

"The UFED Touch's ease of use is exactly what I would expect from Cellebrite,” said Paul Henry, Lead Forensic Analyst at vNet Security, LLC . "The device does a masterful job of stepping you through the process - it is incredibly intuitive, even for the most inexperienced users, without even reading the manual. The UFED Touch easily beats all competitors hands down."

The UFED Touch solution uses logical and physical extraction methods to support more than 7,900 profiles for mobile devices including BlackBerry®, Apple iOS, Android operating systems and smartphones from Samsung, Motorola, Microsoft, Palm, and Nokia. The UFED Touch also supports forensic data extraction and decoding on legacy phones, portable GPS devices (e. g. TomTom and Garmin) and handheld tablets such as the Apple iPad and Galaxy Tab.

“Over the past few years we’ve seen public organizations adopt a ‘mobile first’ mentality, using advanced technologies to better address the explosion of mobile devices and their increasing power when it comes to public safety,” said Ruthbea Yesner Clarke, research director at IDC. “As law enforcement and governments look to stay ahead of the curve, it’s clear that technologies like the Cellebrite UFED will only continue to contribute to the ongoing trend of creating smarter, safer cities.”

Cellebrite’s UFED Touch is designed specifically for legally authorized investigative bodies such as law enforcement officials, military and intelligence organizations, corporate security officers and e-discovery professionals working on criminal or civil investigations. The UFED Touch’s easy-to-use UI and portability helps these organizations meet the growing demand for fast, effective and forensically sound mobile investigations. By utilizing touch-screen technology, non-technical professionals can readily acquire and analyze vital evidential data from mobile devices. Such data includes call logs, phonebook, text messages (SMS), pictures, videos and audio files—even if an item has been deleted.

"The UFED Touch is the most technologically advanced, all-inclusive mobile forensic solution,” said Ron Serber, Co-CEO of Cellebrite. "Investigators are challenged on a daily basis with innumerable devices and operating systems in the market. In addition, mobile devices are holding more and more data that provide essential evidence in criminal and civil investigations. The UFED Touch is up to ten times faster than its predecessor, is more intuitive to use and provides deeper data extractions even from encrypted and password-protected devices. This is the most powerful tool ever introduced in mobile forensics.”

The UFED Touch is available in two versions; UFED Touch Logical, for logical data and password extraction and the UFED Touch Ultimate, for in depth, physical, logical, file system and password data extraction. It is also available in standard or ruggedized versions for work in the lab vs. in the field.
