Key Shield Faraday Bag by Disklabs - Relay Car Theft preventer

Insurance companies reticent to pay out on theft from vehicles where there has been no sign of ‘forced entry’

04.10.18

Vehicle theft is growing at an alarming rate and a significant contributor is the increase in the number of cars fitted with keyless entry systems. Tech-savvy thieves have discovered that these modern security features can be very easy to defeat.

Relay Theft’ is a technique adopted by criminals of using a receiver to pick up the signal from a key (which we all typically leave near the front door) and relay this signal back to a second unit adjacent to the vehicle, tricking it into thinking the key is in close proximity.

Not all thieves are necessarily wanting to steal a vehicle and there are growing instances of gangs focused solely on just removing valuables left in vehicles. This is a major new problem for owners as they have no evidence of forced entry which is usually one of the criteria to recover losses from an insurance company.

There is a lot of coverage in the media highlighting that insurance companies are becoming more reticent in paying out claims where there is no evidence of forced entry. A simple solution to prevent this problem occurring is to use a Disklabs Keyshield thereby eliminating the potential stress and frustration of losing valuables left in a car.

The Disklabs Keyshield was developed as a simple and effective way to have assured reliable protection of keys stored in the house and is accredited with ‘UK Police Preferred Specification’

Features of the Keyshield:

• Blocks all RF wireless signals
• Easy to use
• Independently tested
• Functional and stylish design
• Uses military grade waterproof resistant material
• Accredited SBD ‘Police Preferred Specification’
• Designed and manufactured in the UK

Faraday Bags ‘Go Large’ With the new 65-litre Holdall Shield from Disklabs

30.10.18

Disklabs Faraday Bags have today announced the launch of a new 65-litre capacity holdall shield (HS4) for any applications where there is a need to secure and protect multiple digital devices at the same time.

The development team at Disklabs pioneered the development of the Faraday bag over 10 years ago, and this latest addition to the company’s range products is a result of feedback from customers who want to protect more than one device at the same time,

Applications

Corporate

  • Protecting your digital privacy when travelling
  • Securing digital devices at confidential meetings
  • Transportation of sensitive electronic equipment
  • Anti-hacking and Anti-tracking

Law Enforcement and Military

  • Securing evidence when seizing multiple digital devices
  • Blocking tracking devices in seized drugs or contraband
  • Controlled package delivery
  • ‘Clean’ phone delivery
  • Counter Surveillance
  • Grab bag for undercover operations

The HS4 incorporates the proven Disklabs Faraday Bag technology in a shielded enclosure with dimensions 70cm x 30cm x 30cm. The development of this larger bag presented technical challenges resulting in the new reinforced roll down sealing method secured by a sturdy buckle.  This ensures a blocked RF environment even if the bag is compressed or deformed e.g. When trying to find space in an overhead locker. This new bag incorporates load carrying web handle design to support the weight of multiple digital devices. Manufactured in the UK this soft bag also features durable water resistant outer material and a padded removable shoulder strap to ensure comfortable transportation.

In addition to ensuring excellent shielding performance, the Disklabs team carried out a number of real world tests including shipping the bag, at its maximum capacity of 23 Kg, through a number of international airports as hold luggage to ensure it can withstand the rigours of modern day travel.

This is the only bag you will need for those trips where you need efficient storage and the peace of mind that your digital privacy is protected.

Features

  • Manufactured in the UK using Military Grade materials.
  • Incorporates two layers of Disklabs technical grade shielding material
  • New securing method ensures faraday properties maintained in all user scenarios
  • Blocks all wireless and GPS signals.
  • Removable padded shoulder strap with sturdy buckles.
  • Load supporting web carry handles
  • Capacity to hold multiple digital devices: product dimensions are 70 cm x 30 cm 30 cm

Disklabs are Digital Forensic Specialists and as a result are acutely aware of the risks that organisations face in ensuring that they keep data secure and this has become even more important with the onset of new data protection legislation, Disklabs has spent over 20 years helping law enforcement, businesses and government agencies ensure the can secure digital evidence and personal data. The launch of the HS4 Holdall Shield reiterates the company’s continuing commitment to develop new products that help keep data secure.

Global launch of the Laboratory Box Large with USB3.0 (LB4-USB)

19.04.23

As a trusted provider of faraday bag solutions into the digital forensics marketplace, Disklabs are pleased to announce the global launch of its latest RF shielded faraday solution, the Laboratory Box Large with USB3.0 (LB4-USB) .

As we all know, mobile phones have become a significant source of evidential data within criminal investigations. Digital forensic analysts are continually finding they must operate primary forensic tools for longer periods of time as device capacity increases. Whether you are trying to brute force a mobile phone or extracting data, we believe that introducing a RF Filtered USB3.0 throughput into our LB4 Laboratory Box could only help.

The LB4-USB RF shielded faraday enclosure has a number of benefits over the current incumbents in the marketplace which include:

  • A significantly larger RF shielded enclosure that can accommodate multiple phones, tablets or a laptop.
  • A large viewable area, enabling process review and verification.
  • A pair of tailored faraday gloves, designed to facilitate ease of equipment operation.
  • A fast USB3.0 RF shielded port with two-way data and power transfer.
  • A light and stable structure, making it easy to use.
  • A portable faraday unit that is quick to assemble or pack away.
  • A truly affordable alternative at a 1/4 of the cost of metal enclosures.

We believe that having a larger desktop RF shielded enclosure with 3.0 USB throughput is a credible and affordable alternative to current market solutions.

As a company that holds ISO/IEC 17025:2017, Disklabs understand the need to protect digital devices from remote data attack during prolonged forensic investigations. That’s why Disklabs developed the LB4-USB in the belief that it would be of real value to police digital forensic units and commercial forensic providers looking to implement a compliant solution that meets ISO17025 needs within an accredited forensic laboratory environment.

Early adopters that include, UK, EU and Far East government and law enforcement agencies have said “the LB4-USB is an easy to use, practical alternative to the heavy metal boxes while operating forensic tools.”

Stealing a car should not be that easy! Disklabs has the key to successful prevention

03.04.18

Tamworth United Kingdom. 6th March 2018: Developed to prevent ‘relay theft’, Disklabs Keyshield is the first RF blocking product to gain the Secured by Design ‘Police Preferred Specification’ accreditation.

Stealing a car should not be easy, but as recent video footage has shown, for cars fitted with keyless entry systems this is not necessarily the case. Luckily prevention is fairly straightforward with the Disklabs Keyshield.

‘Relay Theft’ is a technique adopted by criminals of using a receiver to pick up the signal from a key (which we all typically leave near the front door) and relay this signal back to a second unit adjacent to the vehicle, tricking it into thinking the key is being held next to it. The vehicle can then be opened and driven away.

Simon Steggles, Founder of Disklabs said ‘None of us would knowingly leave our vehicle in an unsecure environment. However, for the owners of vehicles fitted with keyless entry systems a private driveway or carpark may be just such an environment. There has been a recent spate of publicity about criminals using sophisticated technology to enable a car to be stolen from almost any location using a technique called ‘relay theft’. The Disklabs Keyshield was developed as a simple and effective way to prevent this. Following development of this new product we are delighted it has now been accredited with ‘Police Preferred Specification’ by SBD.

Features of the Keyshield:

  • Blocks all RF wireless signals
  • Easy to use
  • Independently tested
  • Functional and stylish design
  • Two Sizes available
  • Uses military grade waterproof resistant material
  • Accredited SBD ‘Police Preferred Specification’
  • Designed and manufactured in the UK

Disklabs is a member of Secured by design, the flagship UK police initiative to help ‘design out’ crime through the use of high-quality innovative products and processes.

Disklabs New Notebook Shield has ‘a trick up its sleeve’

03.04.18

Tamworth United Kingdom. 6th March 2018: The primary purpose of a conventional Notebook sleeve is to protect the device from physical damage, so wouldn’t it be great if it could also protect your data at the same time. The NEW Notebook sleeve from Disklabs does just that.

Not many of us would leave our notebook or laptop unattended in an unsecured environment but in reality, many of us do just this. Physically carrying a device during the daily commute or in public spaces still leaves the risk of connectivity to unsecured wireless networks which can be exploited by hackers.

As a digital forensic specialist company, Disklabs is very aware of these risks and has spent over 20 years helping law enforcement, businesses, government agencies and individuals recover lost and corrupted data, culminating in the development of the new Notebook Shield. Simon Steggles, Disklabs founder said ‘The team at Disklabs have long been aware that prevention is better than cure, and the new Notebook Shield has been developed to block all wireless signals, frustrating the hacker’.

The main features of the NEW Disklabs Notebook Shield

  • Blocks all RF wireless signals
  • Protects the device from physical damage.
  • Functional and stylish design
  • Dimensioned for mainstream brands, Apple, Dell and Microsoft etc.
  • Discreet branding
  • Independently tested
  • Uses military grade water resistant material
  • Designed and manufactured in the UK
