Live memory analysis for computer forensic labs

Guidance Software : 23 May, 2008  (New Product)
Alliance with HBGary enables Guidance software to offer IT forensics specialists the ability to perform live memory analysis and evidence gathering as part of their investigations.
Guidance Software has announced a strategic alliance with HBGary, a provider of security assessment solutions and services. Through this relationship, Guidance Software adds HBGary's unique live memory (RAM and volatile data) analysis solutions to its portfolio of digital investigative offerings.

HBGary Responder gives forensic labs and government agencies the ability to collect digital evidence residing in live memory for prosecution, disciplinary action or intelligence gathering. Investigators can preserve volatile memory data, analyse the content and report on all live memory activity across the network.

"We have entered a new era in security risks. Today's increasingly sophisticated cybercrime incidents require agile yet expert digital forensic tools that can immediately assess an organisation's latest security breach. This alliance with Guidance Software will help organisations protect their confidential information and meet their necessary compliance," said Greg Hoglund, CEO of HBGary.

With the enhanced view of live memory provided by HBGary Responder, investigators using EnCase for their digital investigations can now detect, diagnose and respond to potential security incidents. Additionally, agencies now have access to a comprehensive profile of a subject, including their running processes, activities, open files, passwords and instant messages.

'Until now, investigators who needed to augment their computer forensic activities to include live memory capture and analysis were forced to rely on a time-consuming process using complicated, cobbled-together tools that could not scale to fit user needs,' said Gary Ulaner, Director of Product Management, Guidance Software. "No other product on the market has the ability to remediate and secure a rogue process hidden in RAM or volatile data like HBGary Responder. This capability, coupled with Guidance Software's industry-leading EnCase solution, is a powerful solution for those who wish to expand their digital investigations to include live memory analysis."
