IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Digital Forensics in Public Safety 2022 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study provides an assessment of vendors offering global, end-to-end digital forensics capabilities in government and public safety. Law enforcement agencies today struggle with managing data and information coming from a large number of devices and an almost limitless number of heterogenous data sources. Very large data sets coming from call detail records, mobile phones, and laptops, as well as telecom, cloud, and internet service providers, complicate this further. Outpacing traditional resources, workflow, and processes, agencies are looking for efficient solutions that transform time-intensive workflows.
"Digital forensics solution providers are pivotal to the modernization of criminal investigations. They provide federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies with the tools and processes to meet their mission, an increasing challenge given the data deluge agencies are currently addressing," said Alison Brooks, research vice president, Worldwide Public Safety, IDC.
