Log in to ArtifactIQ for more information and to stay updated with the rollout of new features. 

We can quickly innovate and release updates like this to users because ArtifactIQ is a cloud-based analytics solution. As a cloud-based solution, ArtifactIQ helps detectives, investigators, and examiners: 

  • Accelerate time to first fact 
  • Collaborate instantly with investigative staff both inside and outside your agency 
  • Follow the data to identify patterns and connections relevant to your case with an easy-to-use interface 

Paired with GrayKey, Grayshift’s flagship data extraction technology, these mobile forensic solutions together provide users with a seamless connection that: 

  • Enables law enforcement to obtain access and perform full data extractions on an iOS or Android device, often in under one hour 
  • Maintain control over the evidence you’re collecting 
  • Can help solve cases faster
