A Comprehensive Solution for Workplace App Data Collection
Key takeaways from our on-demand webinar titled ‘How to Simplify Workplace App Collections with Endpoint Inspector’.
Organizations today leverage workplace applications as essential tools for enhancing productivity, communication, and collaboration among employees. However, with the increasing number of workplace apps and data sources, collecting relevant information has become more challenging than ever.
To address these challenges, Cellebrite Enterprise Solutions has developed Endpoint Inspector, a powerful tool that simplifies and modernizes the process of data collection from workplace apps. In this blog, we will explore how Endpoint Inspector streamlines the collection process and revolutionizes workplace app investigations.
1. The Need for Unified Collection
In the past, collecting data from different workplace apps required using separate tools and methodologies, leading to inefficiencies and potential gaps in the investigation process. With Endpoint Inspector, the need for multiple collection tools is eliminated, and investigators can use one unified platform to collect data from various workplace apps.
Endpoint Inspector empowers investigators to collect data from applications used for communication within organizations, such as email, document-sharing platforms like OneDrive and SharePoint, and real-time messaging apps like Slack and Teams. This consolidation not only saves time and effort but also ensures a more comprehensive investigation.
2. Challenges of Modern Data Types
Traditional data sources like computers and emails follow well-established collection processes. However, modern data types, including workplace apps and third-party chat applications, present unique challenges for investigators. Endpoint Inspector addresses these challenges and provides a more effective way to filter and search data across diverse sources.
One key challenge is handling messaging data that flows through multiple participants and topics without a distinct start and endpoint. Endpoint Inspector intelligently organizes such data, making it easier to locate relevant information.
Another challenge arises from the vast repositories of workplace apps, which can be challenging to search efficiently. Endpoint Inspector centralizes the search process, allowing investigators to perform consistent and targeted searches across multiple sources.
3. Modern Collection Methods
Endpoint Inspector introduces modern collection methods to ensure a smoother and more efficient data collection process. By focusing on custodians rather than the type of source, investigators can quickly identify which individuals’ data needs to be collected and streamline filtering criteria.
The tool offers various options for filtering data, such as date ranges and keyword searches. Investigators can use relative date ranges for quicker searches and even build comprehensive keyword lists for future use.
4. Unified Collection in Action
When setting up a collection, investigators can easily choose custodians, workplace app sources, and filter criteria, all in one streamlined process.
Once the collection is initiated, investigators can monitor its progress and access the collected data. Endpoint Inspector standardizes the output format, making it easy to review and analyze the data in any desired platform.
Simplifying workplace app collections is crucial for conducting efficient investigations and ensuring data compliance. Endpoint Inspector revolutionizes the data collection process by unifying disparate sources, providing advanced filtering options, and standardizing output formats.
With Endpoint Inspector, investigators can seamlessly collect data from various workplace apps and streamline the investigation process. This modern approach empowers organizations to make data-driven decisions, enhance compliance measures, and ultimately achieve more effective outcomes in their workplace app investigations.
