Helix3 Pro 2009R3 is Released!

The third 2009 release of Helix3 Pro builds upon its foundation of power, simplicity, and flexibility to further enhance the user experience and maintain its cutting-edge security.

Helix3 Professional is more than simply a forensic data-gathering application. It combines the power of live forensic data recovery, e-discovery, security essentials, and distributed incident management in one convenient package.

The 2009R3 release brings many stability and usability enhancements, including improved Receiver network code -- including the ability to encrypt network transfers. In response to user requests, transfers across the network are compressed to further reduce transfer time. More devices are supported for imaging with better underlying tools for device management.

The bootable environment has been improved as well. All libraries and packages have been updated with all current security and performance enhancements. Tools such as ClamAV have been updated to their most recent versions. The limit to the number of attached devices available for imaging is now infinite, allowing for more flexibility in machine configurations. All file systems, including Ext3 and Ext4, are unaltered upon boot.

These improvements, plus countless "under the hood" enhancements, position Helix3 Pro as the most current, effective, and complete tool available in the forensic software market today.

Forensics: Under Investigation

Helix is mentioned in a recent article written by Derek Parkinson in Secure Computing Magazine. He talks about the correct handling of forensic data, best practices and the threats within a company from their own employees.

"It is important for employers to recognise that forensic data may be needed as part of an investigation into the activities of people inside an organisation, as well as outside. "Hacking is just one of the threats a company's computer system may be exposed to," says Type. "Most large corporations will have systems administration staff tasked with ensuring it doesn't occur, but the majority of companies are more at risk from employee behaviour," she suggests. . ."
