We are BlackBag

Reveal the truth in data in order to create a safer world

Our informal motto at BlackBag has always been, "Data doesn't lie, people do.” Revealing the truth in data is more challenging than ever before due to advancements in technology. BlackBag exists to find solutions for these challenges, thereby empowering our customers to seek, reveal, and preserve the truth.


We develop innovative forensic acquisition, triage and analysis software for Windows, Android, iPhone/iPad, and Mac OS X devices.

Our software is used by hundreds of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies around the world for criminal investigations, as well as leading corporations and consultants handling HR investigations and eDiscovery matters.
