The roots of XtremeForensics can be traced back to 1994 when the first version of what is now ILooK was being distributed to the intelligence community of MI-5 and MI-6 in the UK. Over the next few years ILooK was only available to a subscribed user base of Law Enforcement, Intelligence Services and the Military. ILOOKix was being used in 67 countries and its development was being funded by various agencies in the US that included intel agencies, the US Department of Defence and the Treasury Department.
During the 9/11 trials all digital forensic evidence introduced into Federal Court was processed using ILOOKix. Perlustro was created to manage a 6-year contract with the US Internal Revenue Service.
In 2008 the patent process was started to provide Intellectual Property protection for a method for what was to become ISEEK and XtremeForensics was created to take control of all the source code for both the old and the new tools under development. XtremeForensics signed a fixed-term contract with an intel agency for the ILooK and IXImager tools.
When the newly-developed ISEEK process was granted a patent in 2013, work began in earnest to develop the tool and associated utilities for commercial sale and a new tool, ISeekImager started development using ISeek technology for remote forensic imaging.
Having successfully run numerous pilot projects for a range of use cases the decision was made in late-2022 to allow the ISEEK technology to be used under licence from March 2023.
