If Dark Data is hidden, how can it be dangerous? How much of a threat can it possibly be? Dark Data is everywhere. It’s hidden in the firmware of the smallest devices, like survelance cameras, printers, TV streaming devices, your smart watch, your smart phone, everywhere.
Dark Data Detective is a major upgrade to FI TOOLS & FI Data Profiler, and is under development. The core technologies are the same, but the UI/UX are being redesigned.
We’ve merged our File Investigator technology with Windows File Find and the DOS Directory command, to search for files by their File Type, Contents, Data Storage Method, …
We provide separate File Investigator OEM Partner Kits (FIAPIs) for MS Windows, Linux & Mac OS X. New versions, with additional file formats, are released quarterly.
What does Dark Data mean? We use this term on our website, as if it is obvious. In the most basic terms, Dark Data is information that is difficult to find. So, in effect it is sitting in the dark. But, there is more to it than that, when you apply the term to different industries.Read more
What Our Clients Say
“Well... you have a great product! Really, my little team and I have been in this industry for more than 20 years between us, and whenever we've seen competitive products in action, they've never measured up. Seriously, some shops in litigation support still use extensions as their primary file typing method (and some of them use huge and unwieldy products that are sub-par in performance and accuracy -- Outside In, for example). In addition, your customer service has always been superb. Honestly, I can't see why I would ever go elsewhere.”
“Doing data recovery … [and] computer forensics … File Investigator is a great tool. They are nice folks and very responsive. This program identifies files by their content rather than just the extension at the end. The software also returns a lot of additional file information. It also runs very fast. If you do data recovery, computer forensics, or are just a power user that does a lot of searching; I recommend this software.”
“Light weight, fast, easy to integrate with code samples.”
As our development of Dark Data Detective advances, we will post details of the new features and testing/upgrade opportunities here.
