How To Perform A Digital Forensic Acquisition In Under 10 Mins With Binalyze AIR

A DFIR investigation is generally performed as a post-event response to a potential information security incident. The longer the exposure time, the higher the damage of cyber incidents. 

Therefore, digital forensic solutions need to be simple, automated and have to provide a rapid collection of relevant evidence to reduce the possibility of cyber incident damage and increase the proactive support of the DFIR team to a security incident. 

Binalyze saw this as an emerging challenge and created a solution that is based on rapid evidence collection, easy-to-understand reporting, integration, automation, and speed. 

Here is how to acquire digital evidence files in under 10 mins:

  1. Download Binalyze AIR (you can download it here).
  2. Open the exe file and install the management console in 5 minutes (more info here)
  3. Configure Binalyze AIR by providing the license (you have received via email), the Static IP Address of the machine, and by creating a user profile
