Susteen partners with Cyan Forensics to deliver rapid scanning of smartphones in the field
Investigators in the field now have technology they can carry in their back pocket to help combat child sexual exploitation and counter terror operations
The partnership brings Cyan Forensics' scanning technology to Susteen's DATAPILOT 10 device, which will provide a portable, easy-to-use rapid scanning capability for smartphones. This will enable front-line police officers and counter terrorism teams to collect critical information from mobile phones quickly and accurately in the field.
People are moving increasingly to different devices for internet use, with over 3.2 billion smartphone users globally last year. Offending activity is moving the same way, and policing is experiencing a huge increase in the number of smartphones being examined for evidence. It is more important than ever that police are able to quickly and effectively find the evidence they need to act.
"Our top priority has always been and will continue to be to empower law enforcement in protecting children from online exploitation,"
"It has always been our intention to make our rapid scanning capability available as widely as possible," said Ian Stevenson, CEO and co-founder at Cyan Forensics. "The ability to scan smartphones is vital, and in Susteen we have found a partner with complementary products and shared values. We are both specialists in our fields and by bringing our individual expertise together, we can create a cutting edge tool that rapidly scans smartphones in the field for illegal imagery. I'm excited to get this capability into the hands of front-line users dealing with child abuse and terrorism investigations and help them in their work."
