The ability to unify data collection from computers and mobile devices comes at a critical time for businesses as several emerging trends put pressure on business investigations and the eDiscovery process:
- Employees use their personal devices for work: A third (33%) of people use a personal device such as a computer or smartphone to make working at home easier. Cellebrite’s new mobile remote collection capability can collect evidence from devices inside or outside an organization’s IT network, ensuring vital information doesn’t go missing.
