Forensics is more complicated than ever given the pervasiveness of mobile, Bring Your Own Device workplace realities and cloud-based everything. Our in-house forensics group deftly examines data wherever it lives, and finds exactly what you need, often before you know you need it. Whether it’s navigating today’s complexities or anticipating tomorrow’s, D4 has you covered.

Data Collections and Forensic Analysis

Potential data evidence can be found everywhere from mobile devices to desktop computers to the cloud to halfway around the world. Our certified technicians are expertly trained in all forms of forensic data collection and gathering data according to industry standards to provide the strongest defensible position.

Data Recovery

Text messages, emails and files are deleted every day, but if that day happens to be during a legal hold, such data could be key evidence in a case. Our experienced technicians recover and extract deleted data—data that, in less-experienced hands, could be gone forever.

Expert Testimony and Consulting

Judges often find it necessary to appoint neutral, third-party experts to assist in handling and interpreting digital data. D4 can provide protocols to handle privileged or confidential material between parties or provide expert testimony in sensitive cases. In fact, D4’s team of seasoned experts has testified in federal courts across the country and in several high-profile cases.

Data Preservation

Electronic data has to be preserved when litigation has been filed or an internal investigation is needed. To be admissible and defensible, the data must be properly collected and stored—improper data preservation can result in sanctions and other consequences.

Preserving data is becoming more and more challenging given the tremendous volumes, sources and types of data potentially involved. D4’s team of experts assist you in properly preserving your data, and works with you to choose the right tools and processes to ensure all relevant data is collected and remains intact. Our experts will work closely with you to ensure your data is safely and defensibly preserved.

Our in-house data center provides our clients with a flexible and accessible private cloud to ensure data integrity.
