The May 2013 issue of SC Magazine includes its latest review of Triage-G2, which scores 4 3/4 out of 5 stars.
“ADF Solutions’ Triage-G2 was quick to set up and use. All we had to do was download the software, configure the triage key so it knew what to collect, plug the key into the targeted device, and then analyze the information. The GUI was simple to navigate since there were only a few options on the program the user could choose. The software had preset search options, and if the search options were not what the user needed, one could have easily customized their own configuration. The simple GUI promotes the product’s ease of use making it simple for the novice user to navigate – even with minimal training.” -SC Magazine, May 2013
Several months ago, the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM is charged with overseeing the various Special Operations Commands of the U.S. Armed Forces), conducted an evaluation of computer media exploitation and cellular telephone exploitation products, systems, and tools. The evaluation was organized by the USSOCOM Program Office. Triage tools were included as a separate category along with other computer media exploitation tools. An important part of the evaluation was to include representation from each of the respective military services to ensure that the triage tools were evaluated respective to any service-unique requirements. Overall, the objective of the evaluation was to determine which triage tool could best meet the military’s requirements for procurement and worldwide dissemination. Selection of specific triage tools for evaluation was based on previous procurements by both the USSOCOM Program Office and by individual military operational units.
The following article covers how USSOCOM tested and selected a triage tool that best fit the military’s needs and requirements. The article was posted on DFI News by John Barbara from Digital Forensics Consulting, LLC.
