VOGON was established in 1985 and has rapidly become a world leader in computer evidence services, data conversion and data recovery from computer storage media.
In the field of computer evidence, Vogon is the main supplier of systems and services to many government agencies in Europe and North America. Our experts have an impressive track record of detecting, analyzing and presenting computer evidence in the broadest range of criminal activities including fraud, extortion, data theft, pornography and internet abuse. All reports produced by our investigation service comply with legal requirements for admissibility in court, and we can provide Expert Witnesses to give evidence. For organisations gathering the evidence themselves – such as police departments and tax authorities – we have developed state-of-the-art search and analysis systems. Full training is provided in our dedicated facilities.
Vogon helps companies to maintain business continuity in the face of data loss, by providing a world leading data recovery service. Every type of hardware and software is supported, and our own expert software engineers have developed powerful tools for maximum data recovery. We work closely with all the major disk and tape drive manufacturers (See Vogon Vendor Partnerships) to ensure we cover all formats and technologies. Assistance can be immediate, with ultra fast turnaround.
Our data conversion services ensure that companies retain total access to stored information at all times. All operating systems are supported, from legacy systems to the most recent including WIN 2000. We specialise in technically challenging conversions, succeeding when other companies fail and returning data in any format.
Vogon is based in the UK, Germany, Norway and the USA, and has a worldwide client base. International customers include tax authorities in the UK, Eire, Sweden and Austria; Customs and Excise authorities in Germany and the UK; computer forensics laboratories in North America, the Netherlands and the UK; police forces in Canada, Bavaria, the UK and Singapore; investigators in Norway, Japan, USA and across Europe.
In 1997, Vogon’s capabilities were enhanced by the acquisition of AuthenTec International, and today Vogon offers the most comprehensive services available in our specialised field.
