Digital Forensics and Incident Response

Identify, contain, remediate and recover from cyber incidents with forensic precision


Learn how to stay protected against cyber threats

Attackers can traverse the inside of a network within minutes. Incident response teams need to quickly identify the intrusion source, all impacted systems and the root cause, and preserve all evidence. Incident response workflows are critical to ensuring teams minimize potential damage and prevent a data breach.

Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) solutions enable organizations to efficiently collect, analyze and report on evidence from a variety of data sources and streamline incident response investigations.

Key benefits

Impact business and achieve better results.

  • Proactively hunt for threats

    Leverage capabilities and workflows to proactively hunt for intrusions, contextualize detections and fully understand extent and impact.

  • Triage faster

    Quickly understand the full extent, impact and nature of a security compromise through workflows designed to accelerate DFIR artifact triage.

  • Identify root cause

    Gain visibility into relevant forensic artifacts to understand the root cause and timeline of an incident.

  • Isolate and remediate infected systems

    Contain threats, isolate affected systems from the network and remotely eradicate malicious or unauthorized binaries, processes and registry keys.

Business impacts

  • Threat remediation

    Incident responders have to act within minutes of an attack to mitigate potential damage. Legacy security solutions are reactive and do not provide root cause identification or context. Leverage advanced workflows for accelerated remediation.

  • Memory analysis

    Incident response teams need to analyze memory for a full view into a machine’s state at the time of an incident. Since legacy systems do not capture memory, critical digital evidence may be lost. Acquire and analyze memory to improve responses.

  • Forensic investigation

    When an incident occurs, DFIR teams must forensically analyze large volumes of data from a variety of sources. Manual data examination consumes valuable time that could be spent mitigating damage. Streamline analysis to accelerate remediation.

  • Business continuity

    Affected systems typically need to be wiped and reimaged before going back online. This process can delay or disrupt critical business functions, such as payment processing. Leverage targeted remediation to eliminate disruptions.
