" We are very happy with the Universal product. So happy, that I very seldom use our enterprise forensic product, FTK (we've since phased out Encase)....F-Response almost always connects to our clients, which are spread out all over Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. No such luck with our previous tools, FTK and Encase agents. "

F-Response Consultant Edition

The Consultant Edition of F-Response is our non-covert (GUI) version of F-Response uniquely designed around the needs of larger and geographically distant consulting or E-Discovery teams needing direct access to a wide array of potential target machines.

Using F-Response Consultant Edition and the F-Response Consultant Connector(FCC) investigators can connect to a virtually limitless number of remote target machines. F-Response Consultant allows you the examiner to obtain completely vendor neutral, write protected access to remote physical disks, logical volumes, and in some cases physical memory from over ten different remote operating system environments.

F-Response Consultant Edition also includes access to the F-Response Accelerator, a secondary connectivity tool allowing for an unlimited number of remote examiners.

F-Response Benefits

Full Live Read-Only Access, No File Level Locking

F-Response provides direct, live, read-only access to the remote target computer's disks, volumes, and in certain cases physical memory. Since all access is at the physical level there is no file level locking, F-Response gives you access to any and all content on the remote target, including protected system content (Registry files, Email PSTs, Database Files, etc).

F-Response Executable and Software
