FTK (Forensic Tool Kit)
Access Data’s FTK is a court-accepted digital investigations platform that is built for speed, analytics and enterprise-class scalability. Known for its intuitive interface, email analysis, customizable data views and stability, FTK lays the framework for seamless expansion, so your computer forensics solution can grow with your organization’s needs.
In addition AccessData offers new expansion modules delivering an industry-first malware analysis capability and state-of-the-art visualization. These modules integrate with FTK to create the most comprehensive computer forensics platform on the market.
Cerberus is a malware triage technology that is available as an add-on for FTK 4. The first step towards automated reverse engineering, Cerberus provides threat scores and disassembly analysis to determine both the behavior and intent of suspect binaries.
View data in multiple display formats, including timelines, cluster graphs, pie charts and more. Quickly determine relationships in the data, find key pieces of information, and generate reports that are easily consumed by attorneys, CIOs or other investigators.
INTEGRATED COMPUTER FORENSICS SOLUTION
Create images, process a wide range of data types from forensic images to email archives, analyze the registry, conduct an investigation, decrypt files, crack passwords, and build a report all with a single solution.Recover passwords from 100+ applications. KFF hash library with 45 million hashes.Advanced, automated analysis without the scripting.
SINCE FTK IS DATABASE DRIVEN, IT MEANS YOU DON’T LOSE WORK DUE TO CRASHING
Unlike other products on the market, FTK is database driven so you won’t experience the crashing associated with memory-based tools. In addition FTK components are compartmentalized, so for example, if the GUI crashes, the processing workers continue to process data.
FTK is different from other computer forensics solutions in that it processes data up front, so you’re not wasting time waiting for searches to execute during the analysis phase. However, the product is designed to provide the fastest, most accurate and consistent forensic processing possible with distributed processing and true multi-threaded / multi-core support. Every copy of FTK includes a total of 4 processing workers – 1 on the examiner machine and 3 distributed. If you are interested in having multiple examiners share a common processing farm and centralized database for collaborative analysis, please contact your sales representative to inquire about AccessData Lab.Wizard-driven processing ensures no data is missed.Cancel/Pause/Resume functionalityReal-time processing statusCPU resource throttling
Email notification upon processing completionPre- and post-processing refinementAdvanced data carving engine allows you to specify criteria, such as file size, data type and pixel size to reduce the amount of irrelevant data carved while increasing overall thoroughness.
Install a persistent or “dissolving” agent on a single computer to enable the remote analysis and incident response capabilities of AD Enterprise. Preview, acquire and analyze hard drive data, peripheral device data, and volatile/memory data on Apple® , UNIX® and Linux® operating systems. Uninstall the agent at any time, and push it out to a different computer for multi-machine analysis.Easy, wizard-driven agent deployment.Secure remote device mounting using the Pico agent.
ADVANCED VOLATILE / MEMORY ANALYSIS
Supports Windows® (32- and 64-bit), Apple®, UNIX® and Linux® operating systemsComprehensive analysis of volatile dataStatic RAM analysis from an image or against a live systemEnumerate all running processes, including those hidden by rootkits, and display associated DLLs, network sockets and handles in context.Dump a process and associated DLLs for further analysis in third-party tools.Memory string search allows you to identify hits in memory and automatically map them back to a given process, DLL or piece of unallocated space and dump the corresponding item.FTK 4 now provides VAD tree analysis and exposes registry artifacts in memory and will parse and display handle information from memory.

FASTER, MORE COMPREHENSIVE INDEX AND BINARY SEARCHING
FTK processes and indexes your data up front, so search and analysis is faster than other products. Leveraging the powerful dtSearch engine, as well as a full-featured regular expression engine, FTK produces fast and accurate results.New in FTK 4: Regular expression support in index searching allows you to search for advanced combinations of characters within indexed data.
BROAD FILE SYSTEM. FILE TYPE AND EMAIL SUPPORT
Support for 700+ image, archive and file typesNotes NSF, Outlook PST/OST, Exchange EDB, Outlook Express DBX, Eudora, EML (Microsoft Internet Mail, Earthlink, Thunderbird, Quickmail, etc.), Netscape, AOL and RFC 833Process and analyze DMG (compressed and uncompressed), Ext4, exFAT, VxFS (Veritas File System), Microsoft VHD (Microsoft Virtual Hard Disk), Blackberry IPD backup files, Android YAFFS / YAFFS 2 and many more.Create and process Advanced Forensic Format (AFF) images.
BROAD ENCRYPTION SUPPORT
