Digital Forensics Now provides remote response services over an Internet connection for many common computer forensic, investigative and data recovery tasks. These remote response capabilities allow our expert digital forensic examiners to provide many common digital evidence collection and triage services in a more efficient and expeditious manner. When remote response services are employed, clients will realize significant savings to both time and money as examiner travel costs and inactive time are eliminated. Urgent situations can often be addressed immediately – regardless of geographic location.
