The ADS Security Innovation Award - sponsored by General Dynamics UK - was announced at a ceremony held at Guildford Cathedral last night.

Evidence Talks Ltd was voted Runner-up for its SPEKTOR digital forensic device. Sometimes called the “Digital Breathalyser”, SPEKTOR uses a simple, process driven touch screen interface that enables a first responder to quickly and safely extract and view the contents of all digital devices such as computers, removable USB devices and memory cards. It allows them to review images, movies, documents of all types, internet activity, online chat, email and much more. They can also carry out keyword searches (supports multiple languages) and hash matching with ease. The SPEKTOR Encryption Detection module also identifies the presence of numerous levels of encryption.

Rees Ward (above), CEO ADS said: “The winning technology, MIDAS, is a technology developed by Daetech Systems to address Police investigators need to effectively recover and collate video and data evidence such as CCTV from a multiplicity of recording formats. Versions of MIDAS are being used by many forces in the UK including the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI), Nottingham, West Mercia and Gloucestershire constabularies, as well as UK Counter Terrorism. ADS congratulates Daetech Systems on their award and we wish them continued success in their production of cutting edge Security equipment.”

 

Dr. Sandy Wilson, President and MD of General Dynamics UK, said; “The UK Government has said that SME’s are the lifeblood of the British security and defence industry, and General Dynamics UK agrees. That is why we support British SME’s through our EDGE UK facility in South Wales and awards like this.”
