In-Q-Tel invests in digital forensics firm
In-Q-Tel, the technology investment firm backed by the intelligence community, has added Magnetic Forensics, a digital forensics software company, to its investment portfolio.
Magnetic Forensics’ flagship product, Internet Evidence Finder, recovers unstructured data -- such as social media, chat messages and e-mail from computers, smartphones and tablets -- and structures the data for analysis and collaboration. It has been used by 2,700 public safety organizations in 92 counties to investigate cases related to cybercrime, terrorism, child exploitation and insider threats.
“Magnet IEF allows agencies to combat the rise in cyber and traditional crimes that are enabled by new technologies by streamlining investigator workflow, reducing case backlogs, and getting to the facts quickly to determine what happened,” said Adam Belsher, CEO of Magnet Forensics.
The partnership will expand the capabilities of the company’s existing products for use by In-Q-Tel partners and “create new tools that help keep communities safe,” said Simon Davidson, partner at In-Q-Tel.
