Investigate digital wrongdoing and find key evidence faster.

FTK simply finds the data that other tools can’t. FTK’s reliable, scalable processing engine gets more evidence into the hands of examiners in less time, allowing them to dig deeper into their data and solve cases faster.  Create custom Python scripts, decrypt files, recover and crack passwords, parse registry files, and carve data to recover deleted evidence, and more.
