The year's most important innovations in security

A password pecker

Some phones are too dumb to let slip their secrets. Flip-phone or candy-bar "burners" often hold messages and information crucial to police cases but are so primitive that software designed to tease out clues can't interface with them. Burner Breaker is a compact brute-force password bot. It can enter up to 14,400 combos a day, cracking most devices in hours. That means fewer hand cramps for police. Fewer cold cases too.

Sheriff's office to invest in software that unlocks phone passcodes

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Brunswick County commissioners approved a grant that gives the sheriff's office a discount on new-age forensic software.

Secure View makes products that access locked cell phones and tablets. They service law enforcement agencies across the nation and soon Brunswick County Sheriff's Office will be one of them.

In their application for the grant, the sheriff's office said it takes in 25-30 phones monthly. Secure View said this new package could breathe new life into cases that previously went cold with locked cell phones stuck in evidence lockers.

With easy to view videos and instructions, the SV Strike will replace foreign devices with questionable abilities. While hacker tools were able to break into certain phones, they were not built for law enforcement purposes. The SV Strike combined the need to access phones quickly with the need for accurate reporting features. New features include pattern lock acquisitions and an advanced passcode setting, to crack longer, more advanced passcodes.

The Quantum Strikeis a game-changer for law enforcement agencies and corporations alike. The Quantum Strike includes all pincode/passcode breaking functions of the SV Strike yet adds the ability to acquire data such as texts, emails, call history and more, from the most popular smart phones. The Quantum Strike can be easily implemented in the field or back at HQ.

On Tuesday, May 26, 2015, my law enforcement unit hosted a meeting for a number of law enforcement agency members wherein Susteen Inc. provided a demonstration of their products which included the "SV Strike" and "Secure View."

My department has seized an unprecedented amount of contraband cellular telephones within the penal system. The investigative units at each penal site are combating this problem using multiple methods to interdict these contraband cellular phones to ensure public safety. The methods used by the department to interdict the contraband cellular telephones includes cell searches, contraband K-9 units and cellular signal capturing equipment. Additionally, other forms of interdiction include forensic examination equipment which allows investigators to examination the seized contraband cellular devices to ensure public safety.

Prior to the May 26, 2015 meeting, ISU sought cellular telephone forensic equipment that would bypass numeric screen locks on contraband touch screen cellular telephones seized from inmate housing areas. While conducting an internet search for such a product, I discovered "Susteen".

While viewing Susteen's website, they offered a product named "SV Strike". The "SV Strike" was presented as the solution to bypass pin codes and screen locks on IPhones and Androids.

I contacted Susteen and was introduced to Eryn Williams in the sales department. I presented Ms. Williams with the problem that our department was facing with the numeric screen locks. Ms. Williams immediately understood what forensic equipment was necessary, and promptly offered to unlock our contraband cellular telephones for us as a demonstration of Susteen's ability. Subsequently, I over-nighted three (3) contraband cellular telephones to Ms. Williams. Upon Ms. Williams receiving the cellular telephones, she informed me that they would begin working on the phones immediately. Ms. Williams called me the following day and relayed the phones were unlocked and being returned to me for examination. I thanked her immensely and invited her to complement our meeting and showcase the "SV Strike."

During our meeting, Ms. Williams presented the "SV Strike" and its capabilities. The presentation of the "SV Strike" was received with enthusiasm. During the presentation Ms. Williams also presented "Secure View", a product that can analyze the information contained within the cellular phone and can be used to prevent ongoing criminal activity. At the end of the presentation, Ms. Williams was fielded with specific questions by the investigator's regarding the application of the "SV Strike" and "Secure View" in their environment. Ms. Williams answered their questions with knowledge of the product and their application in the field.

It is the goal of our unit to procure the "SV Strike" and "Secure View" to assist us in combating illicit activity within the penal system and in the public.

Thanks to Susteen "SV Strike," our law enforcement unit was able to continue its investigation into the criminal activity inside our penal system and the co-conspirators on the streets. I recommend Susteen and the "SV Strike" to law enforcement investigators.

Irvine, CA. (PRWEB) January 28, 2015

Secure View was one of the first mobile forensic companies and is in use by the FBI, USSS, DOD and hundreds of law enforcement agencies throughout the United States.

Why do we feel supporting iOS 8 is such a major step? Because with the release of iOS 8 Apple themselves won't be able to handle government requests, while Secure View with ElcomSoft tools still can — even if for a limited number of devices!

Secure View is a world leader in mobile forensic software. Over the last year, Secure View has gone through a major update process culminating in a brand new and user friendly Secure View 4 which will be released in March 2015. Secure View offers special grants and subsidies for educational providers and law enforcement.
