Whether you are an End User searching for hidden or lost data on your hard drive, a Forensics Investigator searching a computer for hidden evidence of a crime or a Software Engineer looking for the right technologies to add to your own products, we have the tools that you need.

DaDark Data Detectiverk Data Detective is a major upgrade to FI TOOLS & FI Data Profiler, and is currently under development.  The core technologies are the same, but the user interface and database are being redesigned.  We will provide more tiers of features for you to choose from.  If you currently own FI TOOLS, or purchased a product from us in the past, you will be offered an upgrade by renewing your annual Support Plan on your past license.  FI TOOLS and Data Profiler will become the first two tiers of features, and we will also provide a higher tier for investigators and scientists who need to dig deeper into the most difficult files.  The screen shot provided here shows a JPEG file in the Visual (using the Bit/Byte Plot chart) viewer tab.  Notice how the different patterns indicate where the file’s objects are located.  When we encounter a new file type, without documentation, this viewer can prove helpful when reverse engineering the new file format.  It can also be used on known file types, to detect Trojan Objects that don’t belong.  This is one example of the new viewers that we are providing in Dark Data Detective.

This is our new Digital Forensics research platform, that we will be sharing with our customers.  Rather than compete with eDiscovery and Digital Forensics file collection platforms, we are building the tool that every investigator will want in their tool box for those cases where you need to dig deeper to find the evidence.  Open up your exception bins, and collections of suspect files, from your cases, and turn Dark Data Detective loose on them.

Each tier will become available incrementally, as we activate the more advanced features.  We will be providing a reasonable upgrade path between tiers.  So, there will be no reason to wait for the higher tiers, if you already see a need for one of the released tiers.  The FI TOOLS product will continue to be supported, and have quarterly updates, during the development of this new product.  Current annual subscribers will have access to both old and new product lines, during this time.
