SUMURI’s customers agree. Joe Church is the founder of Digital Shield, a consultancy that assists in forensic investigations for law enforcement and commercial applications. When engaged to assist in an investigation, Digital Shield typically has a very limited amount of time to get in and off the scene while gathering as much evidence as possible before trying to find out what’s going on.
“We were having a lot of issues with some of the other triage tools we were using in the field,” said Church. Those tools weren’t very configurable and the speeds at which Digital Shield was gathering evidence and forensics with those other tools wasn’t satisfactory. “We ended up spending too much time at the crime scene, which began causing other issues,” he added.
Church began running tests and found RECON TRIAGE’s speed to be significantly faster than other tools in addition to its configurability, which allows Digital Shield to gather the right information the first time.
Reliability was also key. “We weren’t getting the drive failures that we were with other solutions,” said Church. “This is truly forensics evidence that needs to be protected, and some of the other solutions we were using, when we would actually try to bring that evidence up later, some of the drives were actually failing and the evidence that was being gathered on the scene was lost.”
Using the Samsung T5 portable drives with SUMURI’s RECON TRIAGE product improves Digital Shield’s ability to get to the scene of a cybercrime quickly, gather and secure potential evidence as fast as possible and preserve the chain of custody to pursue leads, recover victims and bring perpetrators to justice.
“With RECON TRIAGE and Samsung drives, we haven’t had failures at all. Each time we’ve gone out to crime scenes, I’ve had the confidence that I can release the product onto the crime scene, be able to image multiple machines at the same time, and know that the images are going to be good when I come back because I’ve not had a failure,” said Church.
“We found the best results with Samsung’s line of products over any of the others — the fastest results and least failures,” added Whalen.
SUMURI’s RECON TRIAGE product with the Samsung T5 portable drive is a powerful combination not just for run-of-the-mill technology products, but also when critical needs arise and lives are in danger.
“Protection of children and peoples’ lives — I can’t think of anything more important,” added Church.
