Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 1, 2009
Today, at a news conference from the corporate offices of e-fense, Inc. in Denver, Colorado executives announced the release of the newest computer forensics software, Helix3 Pro. A team of highly skilled engineers and cyber crime experts have worked for over a year to implement their design for Helix3 Pro. Over the last 6 years Helix3 has been used as a dependable and essential tool for law enforcement cyber investigations. Now e-fense has produced a patented proprietary design to provide every law enforcement agency or corporate compliance officer with the means to "catch the bad guys!" as CEO Steve Bederman related. "Cyber crime is increasing in momentum, Information Security Officers and Computer Forensics Investigators need tools that evolve to meet technology advancements. Over many years Helix3 was downloaded over 600,000 times and used around the world to help solve thousands of crimes. This large community of users and experts have suggested changes and improvements. Not only have we incorporated many of these unique concepts but we have raised the bar and added highly valuable technological changes that will be difficult to undermine."
The Helix3 line of products was designed by one of the most highly regarded experts in the forensic industry, Drew Fahey. As the CTO of e-fense he led the team to this next generation product. "This is the culmination of all that I have learned through my own experience as a cyber crime investigator and the years of interaction with users of the Helix3 family of products. I am confident this is the tool of the future and pleased to announce Helix3 Pro to the world."
Helix3 Pro gives investigators the ability to collect data from live running systems and a forensically sound bootable environment for system previews, acquisitions and analysis.
As Managing Director, Lauren LaFortuna discussed the ease with which everyone can have access and use this incident response product, "We have implemented a Membership Forum for all Helix3 Pro users. The cost to be a member of the forum is simply $239 per year or $25 per month. We have purposely priced this as low as possible to ensure that almost anyone will find it an affordable way to conduct cyber investigations and still have the evidence for court cases. I urge everyone to visit our website at e-fense.com to learn about the product and the many benefits of the Membership Forum. I fully expect Helix3 Pro to receive the same or greater response and allegiance that the previous version had gained."
In fact, executives would like to announce the return of Helix3 as a free download. Steve Bederman added, "We are delighted to respond to the needs of the community and make Helix3 free again for download. However, we have built upon the tremendous success of Helix3 to bring you Helix3 Pro, a technically superior product and one that will provide acquisition capabilities far and above any product you have in your kit bag today!"
