HBGary and Skout Forensics Announce OEM Agreement

HBGary, Inc. and Skout Forensics have announced the signing of an OEM agreement. Under the agreement, Skout Forensics will integrate HBGary’s Windows memory acquisition tool FDPro™ into the company’s patent-pending flagship product, the Skout Forensics Data Collection and Preservation Kit, a solution that provides thorough data acquisitions without the need of a forensic expert, while maintaining the forensic integrity of the data…“We are committed to offering our customers the best tools for capturing forensics data. With today’s malware threats increasingly found in physical memory, it was important that we offer the latest technology to address this critical security issue. We selected FDPro™ because it is far superior than any other memory acquisition tool available in the market today. Skout Forensics is excited to announce this partnership with HBGary,” said Skout Forensics cofounder Chris Coulter.

“Today’s global organizations understand that capturing and analyzing malware in memory is vital to protecting their networks from APT and other threats. HBGary is proud to partner with Skout Forensics and looks forward to helping Skout Forensics deliver this memory acquisition capability to its customers,” said HBGary President Penny Leavy.
