BlackBag Technologies, Inc. provides digital forensic solutions to investigators, examiners, and corporate citizens around the world. Our forensics software is used by hundreds of Federal, State, and Local law enforcement agencies in conducting digital investigations and cyber security incident response. Our classroom and online training compliment our software by teaching forensic best practices and providing a comprehensive technical curriculum to support our customers' casework. For our law enforcement customers, we also offer forensic services including expert witness consulting and digital forensic analysis.


  • BlackLight

    BlackBag’s flagship software product, BlackLight, is a full forensic analysis tool, specifically designed to aid LE investigations by parsing and analyzing a wide range of evidentiary devices including systems running Mac, Windows, and iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch). BlackLight sets itself apart from the competition with a comprehensive yet intuitive user experience, allowing examiners to quickly and easily find all of the data they need.

  • MacQuisition

    MacQuisition is the ultimate dongle-based imaging and acquisition tool for Mac OS X devices, capable of both collecting targeted data and capturing full forensic images. Because MacQuisition is the only tool of its kind on the market that runs off of a native Mac OS X boot environment, it is the only tool of its kind that supports all Intel-based Mac hardware and all Apple proprietary CoreStorage volumes including FileVault2 and Fusion. It is the only Mac imaging and acquisition tool that needs to be in a forensic professional’s arsenal.

  • SoftBlock

    SoftBlock allows forensic analysts to quickly mount and write-protect devices by blocking data transfer to evidentiary devices at the kernel level, thereby helping to maintain a forensically sound examination.
