“BlackLight is a great tool to identify apps and other online services possibly not known to an investigation. Usernames, profile IDs are right there in the plists and databases of many mobile app such as Snapchat, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, and even Tumblr.”
"BlackLight has been an invaluable component to our university's cyber courses. It has proven to be a robust forensic tool and is very easy to use. Its intuitive design means less time teaching students how to use the software and more time spent on digital forensic and cyber concepts. Bay Path University has enjoyed success with Blacklight as a Macintosh and Windows forensic tool. It was surprisingly efficient at parsing RAM images (Windows) and it did a great job parsing the Windows registry. "
“BlackLight paired with MacQuisition are the powerful 1-2 punch for any Apple investigation! Simply put: it does what it is supposed to do instead of claiming to do something and then not delivering!”
"If I could only have one tool, I would choose BlackLight. The products and people at BlackBag are exceptional - intuitive, user-friendly products and a team who are highly knowledgeable and genuinely care. Couldn't ask for better products or services! And the training was fantastic! Can't recommend taking the training highly enough. Thank you, BlackBag!"
"BlackLight and MacQuisition are must-haves in every examiner's tool box. The simplicity of each tool allows one to quickly find the evidence in every investigation. Two great features BlackLight has are automatically showing which pictures have GPS data and being able to quickly find it on the map, as well as the ease of exporting and importing iOS backups. Features such as these make BlackLight stand out among the others!"
“Having MacQuisition and BlackLight to acquire and triage the devices, including the iOS devices, was vital to a speedy resolution. MacQuisition and BlackLight were used in this case by trained examiners to efficiently acquire and analyze the digital data, provide investigative leads, and solve the crime. The immediate triage digital evidence implicated the responsible persons of interest and exonerated the innocent.”
For Apple MacBook pro image acquisition and forensics, I can't think of another name. Solved a couple of cases with it's help that got me recognition at work. It's quick, accurate and detailed. Methodical sorting of evidence. Easy to flag and remark events, no app hangups.”
"Just updated to BlackLight and started working on a Windows image. The case involved Skype, and the ability to read the chats in conversation view and then work with the database right in BlackLight sure made the investigation a lot smoother. Not to mention the registry information that gets automatically parsed. I highly recommend this product."
"I have been using BlackLight and Mobilyze in my investigation of child exploitation offenses with the York County Sheriff's Office for the past year. When our agency first made the decision to utilize BlackBag products, I was initially apprehensive about making the transition to new software. However, the support and training provided by this company has been outstanding and made for a seamless transition. Additionally, I feel that these products have been critical in locating digital evidence in several of our higher profile exploitation cases. There has not been the steep learning curve that some other programs have, and I feel that a new examiner, like myself, can pick up on the software easily and quickly. "
“Searching the ‘Application Tab’ in BlackLight is part of my initial work-flow when performing smartphone forensics. I want to find as many accounts and IDs used as possible to not only gain insight into apps being used but to provide investigators the information needed to begin any legal processes of getting data from the host service providers."
