Crowbar digital forensics tool from Mantech Cyber Solutions

ManTech International : 13 July, 2009  (New Product)
Forensic data can now be recovered from PDA devices and other equipment using memory cards by deploying Crowbar from ManTech
ManTech Cyber Solutions International announces its most recent product, Crowbar. This unique digital forensic tool was designed to perform critical functions needed by the law enforcement and military digital forensics community. Crowbar deciphers personal identification numbers (PINs) on multi-media flash memory cards typically used in mobile phones, personal digital assistants, digital cameras, and other devices. ManTech CSI is proud to partner with Teel Technologies as a value-added reseller.

"We developed Crowbar as a solution to a dilemma faced by many of our customers - how to recover PIN-protected data from electronic devices taken into evidence," said Alex Nieves, President of ManTech CSI. "Crowbar is currently being used successfully by our customers and we are excited about the growing demand for this product."

Crowbar is available for sale to federal, state and local government agencies.

Crowbar addresses several forensics challenges. For example, many traditional forensics tools will identify a PIN-locked flash memory card as 'corrupt' without indicating that the card may be PIN-locked. Crowbar is able to determine if a memory card is PIN-locked, corrupt, or damaged.

Before Crowbar, the only way a military, law enforcement or civilian government investigator could unlock these storage devices was to obtain the PIN from the owner, or manually guess at the PIN. Crowbar gives investigators access to data stored on PIN-locked secure digital or multi-media card flash memory cards by rapidly attempting to determine the PIN.

Crowbar is a user-friendly, portable, handheld device that is designed for tactical field operations. Crowbar delivers results by:

* Saving precious field-investigation time by attempting to crack PINS faster and more efficiently than could be done manually
* Creating forensically sound images of unlocked cards for further examination back at the lab
* Serving as a write-blocked card reader for unlocked cards.
