Who uses Faraday Bags?

Shielding

Faraday bags ensure that devices are secure from any external interceptions, and prevent:

  • Remote wiping of the date - losing critical data in a case or tribunal.
  • Tracking the device - potentially putting your officers in jeopardy.
  • Bugging - by remotely using the devices microphone and/or camera.
  • Allowing officers immediate access to data on a device in a secure manner.

Who uses Faraday Bags?

Millitary and Intelligent Agencies use Faraday bags to prevent unwanted applications being invoked remotely or data altered after devices are seized.

Law Enforcement organisations use Faraday bags to maintain a secure chain of custody from point of seizure to examination.

Forensic Investigators use the 'Lab Edition' Faraday bags during analysis of exhibits and view results directly from the mobile exhibit's screen. (This ensures that the exhibit can't be remotely wiped or accessed by anyone other than the examiner.)

Corporate Clients use Faraday bags to safeguard their phones, laptops and tablets during sensitive meetings, in transit or in situations where their electronic devices might be vulnerable to interception.
