Investigators in the field now have technology they can carry in their back pocket to help combat child sexual exploitation and counter terror operations
IRVINE, Calif. - Oct. 7, 2020 - PRLog -- Susteen, the California-based developer of mobile forensic tools, has partnered with Cyan Forensics, the Edinburgh-based company delivering technologies to help law enforcement find child abuse and terrorist material quickly.
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," stated Steve Lin, President at Susteen. "This partnership with Cyan Forensics will give law enforcement the ability to get rapid results while on-scene and also quickly identify illegal images, giving them the ability to make quick and actionable decisions without the traditional lengthy wait on a forensic lab. Both companies focus on using cutting edge technology to make collecting evidence faster and easier. We are passionate about helping law enforcement to solve more crimes with technology."
"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."
