“The latest version of our groundbreaking XRY technology will enable access to 12,415 device profiles— offering unparalleled capability to users, allowing them to keep pace with latest versions of applications and new technologies in the personal device marketplace,” said Glenn Hickok, President of MSAB Inc.  “This latest version was driven by the evolving needs of law enforcement and direct feedback from the field—we feel the latest XRY platform provides our customers with a unique and powerful tool, that will be a real game changer.”   

MSAB’s XRY platform is playing a key role in  law enforcement’s efforts to address a wide array of criminal threats in the U.S. including narcotics trafficking, gang violence and exploitation of children.  The XRY tool helps law enforcement collect evidence from today’s most advanced smartphones and mobile devices, in general, including cell phones, tablets, portable GPS units, SIM cards, and memory cards.  The evidence collected by XRY includes contacts, phone numbers, call logs, text messages, social network app data, location data, pictures, videos, and voice messages including files that have been deleted.  It is heavily used across the U.S. by federal task forces addressing crimes against children and drug enforcement, State Computer Crime Labs / Digital Forensics Labs, Regional Computer Forensic Labs (RCFL’s), and Fusion Centers.  It is also widely used by a host of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and the U.S. military. 

“While many tools claim to cover applications such as Facebook, they are not created equally,” added Hickok.  “Unless they support the latest versions of those applications they will likely offer limited utility to users.”

XRY has also been successfully proven in courts of in over 60 countries around the world and was recently used to extract WhatsApp messaging data used in Oscar Pistorius case.  It was also used to collect data used against City Councilman in Central Valley California (LINK) who was sentenced in case involving sex crimes against minors.
