Launch of CylanceCOLLECT Makes Forensic Data Collection Easy

eDiscovery and Forensics Management So Easy, Can Be Done Anywhere by Anyone

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 12, 2013) - Cylance, Inc., a global cybersecurity technology and services company, applying science to security, today announced the launch of CylanceCOLLECT forensics data collection product.

CylanceCOLLECT is the industry's easiest evidence collection software that can be used anywhere, by anyone regardless of technical background. All other forensics products today require a technical expert to be on premise or to gather all target machines into one location -- both approaches being costly and unnecessary. CylanceCOLLECT allows for simple, low cost full forensic collections through a portable drive, capable of collecting from laptops, desktops and even servers. The proprietary technology enables thorough and complete copy of all files including local email, images, sound and video as well as free slack and unallocated space anywhere, anytime, without concern for loss of data and or a time consuming process.

While most data collection forensic solutions are cumbersome and require a skilled forensic investigator or IT administrator to properly configure and execute complicated tools, both experienced and users with no training can use CylanceCOLLECT for evidence collection associated with computer investigations, electronic discovery, data recovery and data preservation in a legally sound, secure and defensible manner. CylanceCOLLECT's soundness and simplicity saves resources by taking costly and inefficient travel by forensic analysts out of the equation.

CylanceCOLLECT's key features include:

  • Captures full forensic image from computers in both a live and powered off state.
  • Supports collection on Windows, Mac, Linux as well as RAID configurations on servers.
  • Automatic TrueCrypt encryption ensures confident data shipment and transportation anywhere in the world.
  • Inherently maintains chain of custody through 256 bit secure encryption and documented distribution and capture processes.
  • Logs all processes, system information, make, model, serial number and size of devices.
  • Automatically images attached physical device (thumb drives, USB, external hard drives).
  • MD5 hash of source and images for verification purposes.
  • Memory Collection captures volatile RAM automatically using HBGary's FDPro.
  • Professional Service support for large collection management, analysis, litigation holds and expert witness services.

"Data collection on target machines is a growing challenge for organizations. Whether it's for preserving departing employee information, executing eDiscovery, or ensuring legal forensics integrity, CylanceCOLLECT is a must more simple and elegant solution than sending out expensive techs to collect data," said Stuart McClure, Founder and CEO/President of Cylance. "CylanceCOLLECT achieves any company's forensic collection objectives without the cost or complexity."
