How To Protect Your Acquired Evidence From Ransomware Attacks

SHIELD is a kernel-mode component of ACQUIRE and TACTICAL protecting all collected digital evidence by our solutions regardless of the device it resides in. 

As long as the ransomware SHIELD is green, all folders that are used for saving evidence are protected from any external modifications until you export the evidence to some external destination.

At its core, it’s a kernel-mode driver that is monitoring collected evidence against any type of ransomware modification thus giving you the possibility to continue collecting evidence in a safe mode.

How to use it

The feature is enabled by default and will stay active until you disable it by clicking the shield icon on the main page of TACTICAL/ACQUIRE or by clicking one of the two buttons on the acquisition summary page (Open Output Folder / Open Case Html). 

Please note that these solutions will protect the case files they collect regardless of the location they reside in (i.e. USB drive or a network share) which is the reason we suggest you use a USB drive or a network share dedicated for this purpose only.
