News Release: Meet Magnet Forensics (formerly JADsoftware)

In honour of my first blog post, I have some exciting news. JADsoftware has a new identity, including a new company name – Magnet Forensics. I’m sure you’re wondering why the change? Let me explain…

A lot has changed since I launched JADsoftware and first developed Internet Evidence Finder (or IEF) while working as a police officer and forensic examiner. After a couple of years juggling both jobs, I realized IEF had enormous potential to help you perform better investigations, so I decided to dedicate myself to developing the software full-time. The growth the company has experienced since then has exceeded my highest expectations.

The feedback we’ve received from our customers is incredibly encouraging, and we are using it to develop even better digital forensics products and solutions. The time feels right for a new identity, and we are excited to be Magnet Forensics. Our new name speaks to what we do – like a Magnet, our products pulls key evidence from loads of data, so you can build better cases.
