Oxygen Forensics Continues to Prove to Be the Industry's Go-To Forensic Solution

​​Oxygen Forensics, a global leader in digital forensics for law enforcement, federal, and corporate clients, announced today the release of Oxygen Forensic® Detective v.13.0, powered by JetEngine, the company's flagship software. The release introduces features that increase efficiency by implementing innovative solutions for law enforcement and investigators in the digital forensic, incident response community.

This release introduces full physical extraction capabilities for many of the most popular Samsung smartphone devices. With years of prominence and a global market share of over 19%, Samsung has been a significant player in the smartphone industry for decades. Thus, support for these devices was a necessity. Oxygen Forensic Detective 13.0 gives investigators the ability to bypass screen locks, perform physical acquisitions, and decrypt data from Samsung devices based on Exynos chipsets. Oxygen Forensics COO, Lee Reiber, says, "Having the ability to access the data within today's most popular devices was a must. Our R&D team has been working overtime to bring this support to our valuable customers across the world with the goal of making the world a safer place." Oxygen Forensics proves just that with this release.

The new extraction functionality is available for Samsung devices running Android OS 7, 8, and 9 and supports 76 device models. If that was not enough, Oxygen Forensics added the ability to allow users to request support for any unsupported Samsung model, continuing the advancement of its physical bypass capabilities and furthering support for its customers. With this release, Oxygen Forensics' screen lock bypass support extends to 5 chipsets, including Kirin, MediaTEK, Qualcomm, Spreadtrum, and Exynos.

Version 13.0 also presents significant developments in data analytics, all with the purpose of optimizing the user's investigative workload. The included Optical Character Recognition, or OCR, feature relieves investigators of the burden of manually transcribing text found in photos or screen-shots by automatically identifying words within an image and converting them into machine-encoded text. All image files containing text information will automatically be sent to the OCR section for easier access. In addition, the user can select any image in the Files section and send it to the OCR for further analysis. This powerful addition will now allow investigators to conduct keyword searches across all processed imagery to find text evidence that can often be overlooked.

For Oxygen Forensics, a consistent output of innovative features, along with support for new devices, are the keys to their continued progression as the industry's all-in-one digital forensic solution. The company's close relationship with the digital forensic community and the first-rate support for their customers is what separates them from the growing list of forensic providers.

When asked about Oxygen Forensics' relationship with its customers, Lee Reiber stated, "By listening to our customers on a daily basis we understand the critical dynamic of today's digital forensic investigative cycle and continually deliver a product that supports that mission." Each release recurrently grows and expands their product line, and Oxygen Forensic Detective v.13.0 is no exception. With additional cloud service support, advanced searching, and innovative reporting capabilities, Oxygen Forensics is in a league of their own.
