'''About Belkasoft'''
  
Incident Response is a set of procedures for an investigator to examine a computer security incident. This process involves figuring out what was happened and preserving information related to those events. Because of the fluid nature of computer investigations, incident response is more of an art than a science.
+
Belkasoft is a computer and mobile phone forensic software manufacturer since 2002. The company develops a range of forensic products aimed at law enforcement officials, investigators and experts in IT security and intelligence. The company delivers solutions that work right out of the box, without requiring a steep learning curve or any specific skills to operate
  
== Tools ==
+
'''Products'''
  
Incident response tools can be grouped into three categories. The first category is '''Individual Tools'''. These are programs designed to probe parts of the operating system and gather useful and/or volatile data. The tools are self-contained, useful, discrete, and do not create a large footprint on the victim system.  
+
The company’s flagship product is '''Belkasoft Evidence Center''', an all-in-one solution for searching, analysing, managing and sharing digital evidence discovered on suspects’ hard drives and RAM. Supported types of evidence include information found in instant messenger logs, internet browser histories, mailboxes of popular email clients, social network remnants, peer-to-peer data, multi-player game chats, office documents, pictures, videos, encrypted files, mobile backups and system files. Belkasoft Evidence Center is available in four major editions: Chat Analyzer, Chat & Social Analyzer, Professional, and Ultimate. The fifth Enterprise edition brings in centralized evidence processing with server-based operation and user-level permission management. A Portable edition requiring no installation and running off a USB pen drive is also available.
  
Standalone tools have been combined to create '''Script Based Tools'''. These tools combine a number of standalone tools that are run via a script or batch file. They require minimal interaction from the user and gather a fixed set of data. These tools are good in that they automate the incident response process and provide the examiner with a standard process to defend in court. They also do not require the first responder to necessarily be an expert with the individual tools. Their weakness, however, is that they can be inflexible. Once the order of the tools is set, it can be difficult to change. Some script based tools allow the user to pick and choose which standalone tools will be used in a given examination.
+
'''Belkasoft Forgery Detection''' offers the ability to discover digital pictures that were altered, modified or otherwise manipulated. The tool applies a range of image analysis algorithms and a decisive neural network to produce a single numeric estimate of images’ authenticity.
  
The final category of tools are '''Agent Based Tools'''. These tools require the examiner to install a program on the victim which can then report back to a central server. The upshot is that one examiner can install the program on multiple computers, gather data from all of them, and then view the results in the aggregate. Finding the victim or victims can be easier if they stand out from the crowd.

In addition to commercial products, Belkasoft offers a range of free forensic tools.
