Reno, NV – High-tech crimes investigators in Brazil now have easier access to WebCase, an Internet evidence collection solution. WebCase maker Vere Software has partnered with TechBiz Forense Digital, the premier provider of digital forensic solutions in Brazil.
Ranked 5th most affected by cybercrime worldwide in Symantec's recent report, Brazil is home base for four percent of global malicious computer activity. (First-ranked United States accounts for 23 percent of such activity.) Brazil has the most spam zombies of all 20 countries on Symantec's list, and ranks 16th for both malicious code and phishing Web site hosts.
“Cybercrime is not just a 1st world problem,” said Todd Shipley, Vere Software president and CEO. “As the amount of cybercrime continues to increase around the world, law enforcement needs the tools to fight it. Companies like TechBiz are providing the tools necessary to get Brazilian law enforcement into the fight.”
Giovani Thibau, TechBiz Forense Digital business director, said: “Vere Software was the first company to be concerned about one of the most important issues involving cyber crimes: investigators' Internet browsing. For TechBiz Forense Digital, this is a very important part of an investigation, and it seems that Vere Software is on the right path: technically and in its relationship with the clients, partners and re-sellers.”
