What's new in version 5.2 of Belkasoft Evidence Center
The new release features a brand-new multi-threaded core engine bringing a lot of performance and usability enhancements. In addition, Belkasoft Evidence Center 5.2 can now extract QQ 2009-2011 and QQ 2012 conversation histories, and supports Mail.RU Agent 5.7-6.0.
New major features
- Multitasking support. Allows the product to fully employ computational abilities delivered by multiple-core CPUs. The use of multiple CPUs and CPU cores speeds up the detection and collection of digital evidence, and reduces the time required to analyze big hard drives and process larger amounts of information. However, even users of single-core CPUs will benefit from the new engine by enjoying multi-threaded scanning and background evidence collection.
- Parallel multi-threaded scan. The tool now searches for the different types of artifacts in separate threads, quickly locating evidence that's easier/faster to discover, and continuing looking for more complex types (e.g. encrypted files) in background. This new parallel scanning mode allows investigators quicky accessing many types of evidence the moment they are discovered, without having to wait while the entire process completes.
- Search results are added instantly. The new multi-threaded engine now adds the results to the list of discovered evidence the instant it's discovered. There's no need to wait till the scanning process finishes before viewing the evidence.
- Background evidence collection. The new engine enables background computing, allowing investigators to interact with the tool at the time evidence is being collected. Background evidence collection greatly reduces waiting times, allowing specialists analyzing evidence that’s been already discovered before the collection process is complete.
- QQ 2012 support, including support for QQ 2009-2011.
- Improved Skype support. More profiles can be discovered in situations if certain access rights are not available.
- Mail.RU Agent 5.7-6.0 support.
- Added Italian translation.
- Identifying profiles being extracted. The new version identifies the exact profiles for which evidence is being extracted. Profiles being extracted are identified with an animated icon.
- RAW images display faster. The increase in performance up to 2-3x times compared to previous version.
- Support for EnCase 7.05.02. The product is now integrated with all major releases of EnCase v.7 from 7.02 through 7.05.02.
