Oxygen Forensics Suite offers to let the Department of Homeland Security suck your text messages from your Windows Cloud

image

Oxygen Forensics Suite has announced support for the My Windows Phone cloud storage which comes with all Windows Phone handsets, and which increasingly contains more and more information about Windows Phone users.

While their service still requires your user name and password, they claim to be the only forensic service able to get your contacts and text messages from the cloud service, while other forensic services can only get your pictures.

The Oxygen Forensic Suite offers:

  •     Acquire information stored in My Windows Phone accounts directly (login and password required)
  •     Physical Windows Phone device is not required to acquire or decrypt the data
  •     Acquire and parse Contacts and Messages
  •     Use all the powerful analytic features available in Oxygen Forensic Suite including the Timeline and Links & Stats

Oxygen Forensics Suite offers a unique Timeline feature which provides a convenient, single-place access to all activities and movements performed by one or several users arranged by date and time. Investigators can track user location at every moment, build and map their historic routes, and clearly see all activities performed by the user at each location.

Oxygen’s statistical analysis tools allow investigators discover social connections between the users of multiple mobile devices. Calls, text messages and various messengers’ conversations are analysed to produce charts and tables revealing the users’ closest circle at a glance.

Oxygen Forensic Suite 2014 guarantees zero-footprint operation, leaving no traces and making no modifications to the content of the devices. This makes it the tool of choice among government and law enforcement agencies, security services, and forensic organizations in more than fifty countries.

Oxygen Forensics customers include various US and European federal and state agencies such as the IRS, US Army, US Department of Defense (DOD), US Department of Justice, US Department of Homeland Security, US Department of Transportation, US Postal Service, US Supreme Court, European Commission, London Metropolitan Police, French National Police and Gendarmerie, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Ernst & Young, and many others.

After the Nokia purchase, now is the time for Microsoft to buy Blackberry

imageMicrosoft is just about to conclude their purchase of Nokia’s handset division this Friday, which will leave the company with a loss-making mobile phone division which sells more than 50 million dumb phones each quarter and close to 10 million Windows Phones.

The $7.2 billion purchase will take a while to pay for itself, but there is another company which Microsoft should be looking at snapping up before Google or Apple gets their fingers in.

That company is Blackberry, who still owns 26% of all phones used in enterprise, and who is one of the largest mobile device management companies with a service which can manage Blackberry, iOS, Android and soon Windows Phones.

Even more than Nokia, purchasing Blackberry will be synergistic – giving Blackberry new credibility and removing uncertainty about their future, while instantly giving Microsoft a strong foothold in enterprise with a cross platform solution.

Of course Blackberry will have to ditch Blackberry 10, but given that less than 10 million of those handsets have been sold ever this is no big hardship.

Getting rid of Blackberry’s loss-making handset division will allow Microsoft to reap the pure profits from its high margin MDM division, and for Microsoft to cross-sell Windows Phones in areas where Blackberry handsets still matter.

Given that Blackberry is worth less than $4 billion at their current share price, the deal would be a steal which will soon pay for itself.
