F-Response TACTICAL is the newest F-Response software product. TACTICAL has been uniquely designed to streamline live analysis, collection, and authentication. TACTICAL is built around the best of the F-Response Field Kit and Consultant edition, it was designed from the bottom up to be easier to use, faster, smaller, and more efficient.

TACTICAL uses a unique dual dongle/storage device solution that allows an investigator to bring their favorite Windows tools to bear on Windows, Apple, and Linux targets. TACTICAL greatly reduces the need to understand networks and network addressing with an auto-locate technology that gets you connected to your target data quickly and efficiently.

Just like all other versions of F-Response, TACTICAL when connected to a remote computer will give you access to all the physical drives, logical volumes, and physical memory(32 and 64 bit Windows only) on that remote computer via the network. It does this independent of tool or technology, the remote data is presented as a disk giving you maximum flexibility when selecting the right "tool for the job".
