Review: BlackLight from BlackBag

When I had a meeting with BlackBag a while ago, I was pleasantly surprised by how knowledgeable and enthusiastic the representatives seemed about their products. Not only were they open to showing me all sorts of things the tools could do, they also knew the back stories to how they were created, and why they’re necessary for the field.

So when I got the chance to review the latest version of BlackLight, I decided to go for it. 

In recent months there have been several new and exciting developments to BlackBag’s BlackLight solution. BlackLight helps investigators to analyse computer volumes and mobile devices; it can acquire Android and iPhone devices and runs on Mac or Windows.

The new interface is the first major change. BlackBag had received a number of requests for filtering across multiple volumes at one time. Although it was always possible to search across these, filtering was not an option until recently. Now when you add each volume, it is automatically assigned a number in the order in which the data is ingested. You can then sort using one of the built-in filters, and see where the data you’re looking for can be found in each volume.
