AccessData has announced the release of Mobile Phone Examiner Plus 5.0 (MPE+), which introduces new, advanced analysis capabilities and is designed to also facilitate mobile device discovery for litigation support personnel addressing e-discovery obligations.

“The MPE+ 5.0 release is not only the first mobile forensics solution designed with e-discovery in mind, but it also provides unsurpassed support for smart devices, Chinese mobile devices and third-party mobile evidence file formats,” commented Lee Reiber, director of mobile forensics at AccessData.

MPE+ is a stand-alone mobile forensics solution available as software only or preconfigured on a sleek touch tablet for on-scene preservation and preview of mobile device evidence. MPE+ is a unique alternative to pricey, cumbersome hardware solutions or suites of mobile forensics modules. It is a single solution that delivers comprehensive analysis, a customizable interface, easy export and robust reporting. In addition, it integrates with AccessData’s industry-leading computer forensics platform, Forensic Toolkit, to enable easy correlation of both mobile device and computer evidence within a single interface.
