About Our Software

ExponentTM is the #1 Choice of DFIR
Add-Ons for X-Ways Forensics

ExponentTM is an exclusive and continually growing library of powerful 64-bit X-Tensions that extend your forensic data analysis, visualization and reporting capabilities, for everyday digital forensic and cyber security investigations.

Exponent CloudMailTM

Import IMAP mail and attachments directly into X-Ways Forensics from Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Zoho, AOL and other 3rd party providers.

Use court mandated filtering options to narrow the scope of collections when executing search warrants and solve crimes faster. Narrow your acquisitions by locating select keywords or GREP patterns in common metadata fields (e.g., Subject, From, To, CC, BCC, Body, Headers). Define date ranges that messages were Sent or Received or search for IP addresses within email headers. You also have the option to only target specific server folders such as the Inbox, the Sent folder, or any other user-defined folders.


Exponent MobileMessagingTM

X-Ways Forensics (XWF) can now be used to import and examine text messages acquired from mobile devices*.

Text messages from cell phones and emails are indisputably high on the list of probative sources of evidence in almost any case. Being able to see who's talking to whom can be crucial. It's now possible to import text messages acquired by select 3rd party* tools directly into your XWF case file and search everything at the same time. Exponent Mobile MessagingTM provides uniquely designed and visually compelling conversation-view reporting of text messages, straight from within XWF. Better visualization of mobile chats can make all the difference in making impactful arguments in court.


Exponent MobileMediaTM

Import and merge video and picture files from mobile devices into your desktop examinations.

Are you tired of examining multimedia evidence acquired from two completely different device sources and having to use separate forensic tools to conduct your forensic examination? Wouldn't it be nice to bring it all together under one roof? We thought so, and so do the thousands of forensic practitioners worldwide that deal with multimedia evidence on a daily basis. Child exploitation investigators throughout Canada, the U.S. and overseas will appreciate this one-stop approach to sifting through multimedia evidence.


Exponent FacialRecognitionTM

Our facial recognition X-Tension provides the ability to accurately identify, match and extract faces from photos and movie files.

Law enforcement, military, border control and intelligence agencies can now better protect, defend and investigate using our state of the art technology to identify and target persons of interest. Our facial recognition technology is a particularly indispensible tool for investigating crimes against children offences. Exponent Facial RecognitionTM has the ability to detect and extract multiple faces from a single photo or movie frame. The ability to then create photo line-ups from found faces is a helpful reporting feature for information sharing.


We can help your organization realize the full potential of mobile forensics and solve more cases. Discover how you can develop your strategy and capabilities.

    How we license
    our software

    Use of ExponentTM is managed via a non-perpetual, annual renewable file-based license subscription.

    Each license includes access to ALL X-Tensions available in the library, including updates and any NEW X-Tensions that are released within the subscription period.

    Each subscription (license) is linked to a specific X-Ways Forensics (XWF) dongle or BYOD/copy protection device, via the device's nLicID. The nLicID can be determined via the About window in XWF.

    ExponentTM can be licensed for multiple computers where a single XWF network dongle is in use, provided that there is an equivalent number of licenses of Exponent purchased.

    Please note that if a subscription is allowed to expire, then the software no longer functions.

    Subscriptions can be configured to coincide with renewal dates of other forensic tools in your lab. Ask us for details.
