Palo Alto, CA, April 18, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Belkasoft releases a major update to Belkasoft Evidence Center, the company’s flagship digital forensic solution. The new release adds a number of features to help IT security staff analyze incidents and perform remote investigations, investigate hacking attempts and analyze evidence across case boundaries. With this update, Belkasoft Evidence Center aims to help companies investigate incidents occurred on their corporate network or corporate mobile devices.
Remote Acquisition of Corporate Computers
Belkasoft Evidence Center 9.5 adds a major new feature to enable IT security personnel investigate incidents without leaving premises. Remote acquisition helps investigators obtain full device images of corporate servers or workstations running in a distributed environment. By using centralized deployment, IT security staff may install an acquisition agent to any computer running on the corporate network. This agent will then obtain full images of the computer’s volatile memory and hard drives without preventing normal operation and without the need to remove the hard drive(s). Whether the organization has one or multiple locations, this new feature allows non-invasive incident investigations in distributed environments.
Analyzing Hacking Attempts with Incident Investigation
Incident Investigation is another new feature that further expands how Belkasoft Evidence Center is used in corporate environments. Incident Investigation helps companies investigate hacking attempts of Windows-based computers by performing an automated analysis of numerous sources. The tool analyzes the Windows registry, event logs and memory dumps to discover traces of successful and unsuccessful remote attacks that are commonly used to break in to the company's infrastructure.
Searching for, locating and analyzing evidence is a major function of Belkasoft Evidence Center. The search engine has been massively enhanced and improved in version 9.5, allowing investigators locate and link evidence across different cases. Examples of linked information may include email addresses, phone numbers, account ID’s or user profiles that may be present in the current case as well as in older cases. With this feature enabled, a cross-case search hit triggers a prominent alert in the status bar.
Mobile Acquisition and Analysis
Belkasoft Evidence Center 9.5 improves mobile acquisition and analysis by adding the ability to process and analyze Android phones’ backups made with the most popular custom recovery TWRP. TWRP images contain file system images of the entire data partition complete with all files and folders including sandboxed app space. For iOS devices, the tool can perform the full file system extraction via a jailbreak. The two features are provided via a separate Mobile Device Analysis module.
Other Improvements and Enhancements
Belkasoft Evidence Center 9.5 offers numerous performance and usability enhancements, massively improved search performance and better reporting and exporting. More information about what has been updated in version 9.5 is available at https://belkasoft.com/new
