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. By 2002 ILooK was being used in 67 countries and its development was being funded by various agencies in the US that included the FBI, 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 ILooK. This year also saw the creation of Perlustro to manage a 6-year contract with the US Internal Revenue Service.
