WetStone Technologies, the leading provider of forensic software tools used by investigators and lab examiners to detect the presence of data hidden in digital media files, has partnered with Project VIC International (www.projectvic.org) for information sharing and analysis technologies to aid law enforcement professionals in child exploitation investigations.
