Today, numerous criminal and civil litigation cases include digital evidence in the form of electronically stored information. This can include computer files, emails, instant messages, stored notes, social media, and images. How and by whom this evidence is collected, examined and handled can affect its admissibility in court – and can make or break a case.
Without appropriate containment that isolates the signal yet allows for data collection, the device can establish a network/cellular connection resulting in corruption of existing data, transmission of new data, and possibly the overwriting of evidence. To prevent a connection, mobile devices should be transported and examined within a mobile forensics shielded enclosure.
Select Fabricators is a leader in the design and production of mobile forensic containment enclosures and pouches to prevent corruption of important data. Our forensics products are recognized by many in the law enforcement industry for optimum signal isolation. In addition to our proprietary line of standard pouches and enclosures, we have been chosen by many organization and suppliers in the forensics industry to custom design their customized capture pouches and Faraday cage enclosures.
More affordable than lab based non-portable metal enclosures, SELECT’s patented SFP1215W2 (US Patent No. 8,723,053 B2) allows for hands-on manipulation of wireless devices in an RF tight environment making sure internal data is not compromised from the moment of capture. There is no need to take the captured device back to the laboratory to view the internal memory. The see-through soft material window and USB 2.0 connection allow device manipulation in the field.
The SFP1215W2 works with any portable electronic device with capacitive sensing touch screens like smartphones, tablets, and GPS units, and connects to many forensic extraction devices including HTCI, XRY, Cellebrite and Paraben products.
