Vere Software Launches Free Internet Investigation Tool

Vere Software has released the WebCase Internet Investigator’s Toolkit, a utility that combines several of the most important features for online investigations. Free to law enforcement investigators and $29 to private or corporate investigators, the Internet Investigator’s Toolkit provides one-click access to Whois domain ownership information, MX records lookup, Netstat, Ping, Resolve, and Traceroute, among others…“Other lookup tools are available to Windows XP and Vista users at a cost of up to $249,” said Vere Software President and CEO Todd Shipley. “Our tool is unique in that while it provides many of the same features, these are only the tools the investigator needs most.”

Another key feature is the easy ability for the investigator to save the resulting data. This makes completing investigative reports quicker and easier.

In addition to the WebCase Internet Investigator’s Toolkit, a free Vere Software online investigation toolbar is now available. Free to any user, it provides law enforcement, private, and corporate investigators with the basic tools they need to investigate crime on the Internet: trace IP addresses, collect and gather information from the Web, and access Vere Software’s eLearning resources and forum.

Both the Toolkit and the toolbar are downloadable at:
