FROM INVESTIGATIONS TO INNOVATIONS
The Disklabs Faraday Bag story
In 2003 Disklabs – developers and manufacturers of Faraday Bags – were helping the Police with their enquiries.
Disklabs’ digital forensic laboratories, and knowledge of hard disk drive technology, were being utilised by law enforcement agencies to help with investigations into data held on mobile phones during criminal cases.
Traditionally, protecting and shielding mobile devices before investigation required an excessive amount of environmentally damaging single-use consumables. Disklabs identified the need for a more environmentally-friendly solution – and our Forensic Director began the development of the Disklabs Faraday Bag range.
In 2004, Disklabs began supplying UK Police forces with first-generation reusable Faraday Bags for use with mobile phones. Over the last 15 years sales have expanded to encompass the global market, and Disklabs Faraday Bags are now supplied to:
Big in business
