F-Response Consultant + Covert Edition

The Consultant + Covert Edition of F-Response is our limited covert service based (Non GUI) version of F-Response uniquely designed for consultants and internal corporate investigations.

What is F-Response?

F-Response is a forensic, e-discovery, and incident response connection and collection application. F-Response was designed to provide direct, read-only access, to remote physical machines (disks, raid, volumes, and memory) as well as remote cloud storage providers. In addition F-Response provides a clean and simple optional imaging capability for collecting F-Response presented data from multiple sources.

How does F-Response work?

Magic.
Actually F-Response provides access to these remote data sources a variety of ways. For devices F-Response creates an AES 256bit encrypted and compressed connection to the remote machine and presents the drives or volumes of that machine as local, read-only, physical devices on your examiner machine.

How is F-Response Consultant + Covert different?

F-Response Consultant + Covert is the limited covert subject version of F-Response. Simply put this means with F-Response Consultant + Covert edition in addition to unlimited non-covert subject computers, you may also have a single remote covert subject at any given time. In addition, F-Response Consultant + Covert deployment and connectivity was designed to be covert and efficient allowing the investigator to access a single machine covertly and quickly without concern for alerting the end user.

I'm a consultant, can I use F-Response Consultant + Covert on site at a client?
