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. This year also saw the creation of Perlustro to manage a 6-year contract with the US Internal Revenue Service. 

The patent process was started to provide Intellectual Property protection for a method for what was to become ISEEK.

XtremeForensics was created to take control of all the source code for both the old and the new tools under development. Later that year a fixed-term contract was signed with an intel agency for the ILooK and IXImager tools.

Design and build initial ISEEK capability

At the end of the intel agency contract, the newly-developed ISEEK process was granted a patent and work began in earnest to develop the tool and associated utilities for commercial sale.

Begin pilot projects for testing ISEEK functionality

Intensive testing and development of ISEEK

ISeekImager developed for remote forensic imaging

Initial field trials of ISEEK in an ediscovery environment. Addition of Incident Response tab to configuration options.

Initial field trials of ISEEK in an Incident Response environment, option added to capture memory and all data files from live machines. Third-party load file creation added.

Two significant events will occur; ILooKix will be made commercially available in two editions and ISEEK will be released in three editions. The ILooKix Standard Edition is to be a perpetual licence with optional annual maintenance whereas the Advanced Edition is to be an annual licence.
