F-Response Consultant + Covert Edition

The Consultant + Covert Edition of F-Response is our traditionally non-covert (GUI) version of F-Response + a 2nd "Covert" console designed to allow direct deployment to a single covert target.

Using F-Response Consultant + Covert 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.

In addition, the "+ Covert" edition of F-Response Consultant provides a secondary Covert Console for direct deployment of the covert version of F-Response to a single remote target.
