Additionally, mobile data review report localization is now available in French and Polish.

Tableau Forensic Imager (TX1) 3.0

 Continuing with the trend of customer-driven enhancements, Tableau TX1 3.0 includes new features that further improve investigation efficiency and user experience. TX1’s touch-screen user interface (UI) is now available remotely through a web UI when connected by a modern web browser on a computer, tablet or smartphone. Investigators can now manage TX1 administration/operation and participate in an investigation from any computer within the same network domain as TX1. Supported web browsers include Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Safari for desktop, Firefox for android, Chrome for android, Safari for iOS and Opera.

For the first time in the forensic industry, users can now pause any running imaging job (E01, Ex01, DD, DMG) on TX1 and then resume it later, even across power-cycles, increasing efficiency by saving time in a variety of scenarios that previously required the job to be restarted. Users can now also view image and text files of suspect media directly on the TX1, enabling them to quickly triage and determine the priority or relevance of that suspect media to the investigation.

TX1 now provides user with the ability to create, delete and manage multi-user profiles resulting in an improved user experience. TX1 is a market leader in encrypted drive detection and now adds new drive types for detection. Additionally, there have been several other improvements for improved user experience.
