Detego Global, the visionary minds behind the lauded Unified Digital Forensics Platform, have proudly unveiled their Media Acquisition tool as a distinguished finalist in the esteemed “Best Computer Forensic Solution” category of the 26th annual SC Awards. Recognised as a preeminent accolade within the cybersecurity realm, the SC Awards serve as a testament to innovation, spotlighting groundbreaking technologies and trailblazers who propel the industry forward.
Following a rigorous evaluation process conducted by a distinguished panel of industry luminaries spanning the financial services, consulting, healthcare, and manufacturing sectors, the Media Acquisition tool emerged as one of the five finalists contending for this coveted honour.
This nod marks Detego Global’s second award nomination in the year 2023, a continuation of the brand’s impressive trajectory. Over the past two years, the brand has amassed four prestigious awards. In the preceding year, Detego Global’s patented Ballistic Imager tool, renowned for its record-setting data extraction speeds, secured a finalist spot in the same coveted category. Furthermore, the company’s “Field Triage” and “Analyse” tools achieved finalist recognition in the UK Security and Policing Innovation Awards for the years 2022 and 2023.
Integral to the heralded Unified Digital Forensics Platform, a beacon of trust for investigators in domains ranging from the military to law enforcement and corporate sectors, the Media Acquisition tool stands out for its ability to streamline the collection and analysis of critical data from diverse sources, concurrently.
Engineered in response to the escalating demand for swift, comprehensive analytics and on-site agility, Media Acquisition empowers investigators with real-time insights, expediting decision-making. The tool enables live data previews and furnishes instant visual alerts pertaining to points of interest via a globally patented red-amber-green visual alert system – thereby facilitating swift on-site assessments, evidence triage, and diminishing reliance on specialised teams and resources.
Highly portable and adeptly deployable both on the frontlines and within laboratories, the tool arrives with guided workflows, potent data carving capabilities, intelligent automation, and inherent analytics. This affords novices the capacity to conduct exhaustive, forensically sound investigations in any context.
Andy Lister, the Managing Director at Detego Global, expressed elation, stating, “We are once again exhilarated to secure a spot as a finalist in the illustrious SC Awards. This recognition among the cybersecurity industry’s avant-garde entities amplifies our steadfast dedication to revolutionising the digital investigations arena with products that serve our clientele and bolster community safety.”
As remarked by Tom Spring, the SC Media Editorial Director at CyberRisk Alliance, the technologies and strategies embodied by the award entrants encapsulate the remarkable innovation defining the cybersecurity sphere this year. He asserts that this year’s roster of finalists underscores both the robustness and agility of solutions that network defenders wield to shield assets within an ever-evolving threat landscape.
