What's New in Version 8.1
We've got an overwhelming feedback from our customers regarding
our major release of v.8.0. Along with a
lot of kind words (thanks for that!) many users suggested various ideas of what
else we can support or improve in the next version. That's why we did not wait standard
3-4 months before the next release but decided to make an intermediate minor update
with many customer requests implemented.
Version 8.1 of the world's leading digital forensic tool Belkasoft
Evidence Center offers support of new iOS 10, quicker and more robust acquisition
of mobile devices and cloud data, a number of new and updated apps, with a pack
of bugfixes and improvements
