About Us

Digital Detective first came into being in 2002 and has been providing quality software, resources and support to the worldwide digital forensic community ever since. The Forensic Forum now has in excess of 5,000 users and is a valuable resource for Digital Forensics, Mobile Phone Forensics and Digital CCTV Forensics. Our forensic software has in excess of 7,500 users worldwide.

In 2002, Digital Detective released NetAnalysis, a software product designed specifically for the forensic computing community, for the extraction and analysis of internet trace evidence. This software is in use by law enforcement agencies and companies worldwide and comes with a comprehensive manual detailing evidence extraction and analysis techniques.

Since its release, this software has become more advanced and now offers the examiner greater functionality when it comes to extracting and analysing Internet trace evidence. The software also has an extractor for recovering Internet history from image files, binary dumps and write protected drives. It was the first forensic software to recover deleted Internet trace data and the first to rebuild pages from the cache. It is the industry standard for the forensic analysis of browser trace evidence.
