Eliminating Geographic Constraints Through Remote Digital Forensics Services

ELIJAH Meets Remote Digital Forensics Needs in Even the Most Challenging Environments

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has made clear the need for digital forensic providers to be able to offer efficient solutions to remotely collect and investigate electronically stored information. ELIJAH has been offering remote digital forensic services since long before COVID-19 disrupted international affairs. We have perfected a defensible approach to remote collections that requires no technical knowledge on the part of our clients or data custodians, with ELIJAH performing all substantive work as if we were in the same room.

Even when not facing a pandemic, ELIJAH’s remote digital forensic data collection services often are the right choice for clients. For the same reason that people text/call/email more often than they meet with others in person, remote forensic collections can reduce the time and expenses associated with travel. Additionally, although ELIJAH maintains strategically placed offices, recent events have made clear that expertise is far more important than physical presence in a digital age. ELIJAH is well positioned to meet clients’ digital forensic needs, whether they are down the street or across the planet.

Remote Digital Forensic Solutions

ELIJAH was performing remote digital forensics long before the more recent COVID-19 pandemic began. Our remote digital forensic services include:

  • Detailed chain of custody documentation
  • Verifiable forensic imaging of PCs, laptops, tablets, servers, external storage devices, surveillance systems, and more
  • Verifiable forensic collections of email accounts, social media, cloud storage, websites, and more
  • Targeted digital forensic collections
  • Forensic investigation of collected data, and hosting of collected data for your review
  • Expert consulting & testimony regarding our process and findings

No Case is Too Big – or Too Small

ELIJAH has the scale to support the largest remote digital forensic collection projects. We have an over 19-year track record of success in large-scale, bet-the-company disputes. When you need the highest level of responsiveness and expertise, our focused approach is second-to-none.

Although we routinely work on large disputes, many are under the mistaken impression that remote digital forensic collections are not affordable in small cases. Nothing could be further from the truth. Digital forensic collection of key devices and accounts often is quite affordable, and performing the work remotely eliminates travel time and expenses.

ELIJAH Offers a Range of Remote Digital Forensic Collection Solutions

For full forensic imaging and targeted collections of traditional computing devices, such as laptops, desktops, servers, and external drives, ELIJAH can send clients encrypted remote collection drives, and perform forensic collections via a secure screen sharing session. Mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets can be more complex, but ELIJAH has developed successful approaches to remote collections of such devices as well. All collected data is transferred securely on drives employing 128-bit or higher AES encryption. ELIJAH also routinely performs remote forensic collection of web-based data, such as emails, cloud storage, and social media accounts, via direct connections between our secure forensic labs and the cloud-based sources. Finally, clients often send devices to ELIJAH’s forensic labs, which we typically can image and arrange for return shipment on the same day the devices arrive.

Why Clients Choose ELIJAH for Remote Digital Forensic Collections

ELIJAH’s corporate culture is rooted in confidentiality, integrity, and expertise. The Silicon Review recognized that commitment in naming ELIJAH as one of the 50 most trustworthy companies in the United States. Over the years, ELIJAH has received numerous industry recognitions for its award-winning digital forensics, eDiscovery, cybersecurity and information technology expertise.

Experienced. Responsive. Trusted. Wise. These are some of the most frequent adjectives clients use to describe ELIJAH.

Finally, longevity matters. We started providing expert digital forensic services four years before the iPhone was invented. We have seen competitors emerge, grow, acquire, divest, and collapse. Some hire huge sales forces, over-promise, and under-deliver, requiring never-ending investments in sales and marketing to find new prospects. ELIJAH has stood the test of time, growing and thriving based almost entirely on repeat business and client referrals. You can trust ELIJAH to deliver on our slogan Better Evidence, Clearly, because we would not still be here otherwise.


Do You Really Have Extensive Remote Digital Forensic Experience?

Absolutely! Our experienced digital forensic team routinely has been performing digital forensic imaging and data collections remotely for years before the more recent COVID-19 pandemic began, working with some of the largest law firms and organizations, along with individuals and small to mid-sized enterprises.

Where do you work?

ELIJAH has offices nationwide to support client needs, but our remote digital forensics services can be deployed almost anywhere, and eDiscovery inherently is a remote service. Geography rarely is an impediment to ELIJAH performing any of our services, whether digital forensics, eDiscovery, or cybersecurity and information technology.

You Mentioned Both Computer Forensics and Digital Forensics. Are they different?

Not really. Computer forensics is an older term for the profession. As the diversity of electronic storage devices and accounts grew, most have accepted digital forensics as a more inclusive, accurate term, but many use the two interchangeably.

Is ELIJAH Good at What it Does?

Absolutely, we wouldn’t have lasted for over 19 years otherwise! Our team has earned  numerous industry recognitions for best-in-class service offerings, and The Silicon Review named ELIJAH as one of the 50 most trustworthy companies in the United States. Our team has testified extensively in federal and state courts, and have a mile-long list of industry certifications and credentials.
