Forensic Analysis Solution, and Powerful New Features in GrayKey
ATLANTA – AUGUST 2, 2022 – Grayshift, LLC, a leading and trusted provider of mobile digital forensics solutions, today announced ArtifactIQ by Grayshift Early Access, an innovative, cloud-native digital forensics solution that dramatically accelerates digital investigations, streamlines the investigative workflow, and facilitates ease of use and speed of collaboration for public safety agencies. The company also released several enhancements to its flagship product GrayKey for greater access and extraction of modern mobile devices. With GrayKey and ArtifactIQ, Grayshift delivers on its promise to reshape the digital forensics industry.
Initially available to U.S.-based law enforcement agencies, ArtifactIQ by Grayshift is the first cloud-native platform for accessing, analyzing, and managing forensic evidentiary data for public safety agencies. ArtifactIQ provides law enforcement investigative staff with a cloud-native digital forensics solution that:
- Expedites investigations achieving Time to First Fact (TTFF) in less than 5 minutes
- Simultaneously extracts and processes data to share with the investigative team
- Improves efficiencies with evidence sharing inside and outside of your agency
- Saves time, money, and resources so teams can solve investigations faster
According to David Brown, Detective with the Jacksonville, North Carolina Police Department, “The almost immediate access to mobile data, when using ArtifactIQ, could literally be the key to saving lives in child abduction or kidnapping type cases. Grayshift has not only moved the bar, but also changed the game in quick access to mobile data. When working homicide cases, where time is valuable, ArtifactIQ will allow investigators to view mobile data in minutes versus hours in other tools.”
James Howe, police officer in Columbus, Ohio, added, “ArtifactIQ has cut down our processing time significantly…anyone who has worked on violent crime investigations knows how important those crucial first hours can be in solving a case or it going cold. This is a cutting-edge tool that every forensic unit should have in their arsenal.”
Grayshift continues to lead the market in access and extraction for modern mobile devices, regularly adding same-day support as major mobile updates are released. The company’s GrayKey technology offers the fastest brute force available in the industry for locked mobile devices and supports a rapidly growing number of leading Android devices.
