The Power of dtSearch
With the ability to interrogate terabytes of text instantly, over a broad range of data and document types, there isn’t much that can escape the indexing engine that forms the backbone of all dtSearch varieties.
Whether wading through email messages, Word documents, PDFs, web data, databases, or virtually any popular document format; it is likely that dtSearch will find what you are looking for…unless it isn’t there, of course.
Added to the power of the indexing engine, are the amazingly powerful querying options that can be customized to broaden or narrow the scope of your search. As someone searching your own data, it is almost like having Google right there on your desktop. As a forensic investigator, it’s like having laser targeting at your fingertips.
