"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!"
“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!”
“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.”
