Mobile Device Forensic Acquisition and Analysis

BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has quickly become the norm for companies in the performance of regular business around the clock. Employees are likely to discuss sensitive company matters through SMS and mobile email clients, social media (LinkedIn, twitter, Facebook), through proprietary mobile apps (iChat, WhatsApp, Snapchat, google NOW, Maps, Search, etc,), and so many other methods (too many to list), even though company policy may state that the employee is not to conduct official business using non-approved methods.

Planet Data consultants have expertise and proven experience in preserving, recovering and analyzing data from Mobile Devices such as cell phones, smart phones, tablets, PDAs, GPS devices, MP3 players, cameras, etc. What makes this experience invaluable to our clients involves the exponential growth in adoption rate of these mobile devices in the workplace. Current statistics show that there exists a mobile device for every single man, woman, and child in the US – approximately 300,000,000.
