Steganography Analyzer Family of Tools Certified for Windows 8
Fairmont, WV (PRWEB) March 28, 2013 - Backbone Security, the global leader in digital steganalysis, is proud to announce its Steganography Analyzer Family of tools has earned the Windows 8 operating system compatibility logo. Developed in Backbone’s Steganography Analysis and Research Center (SARC), the tools are widely used by US and international law enforcement agencies, the intelligence community, and private sector computer forensic examiners to detect the presence or use of steganography applications on seized media and in real-time over an enterprise network.
The Steganography Analyzer Artifact Scanner (StegAlyzerAS) is a Windows application that detects the fingerprints (or hash values) of file and registry artifacts associated with over 1,150 steganography applications. Discovery of a steganography application artifact during a digital forensics examination is a strong indication the application has been, or will be, used to conceal evidence of criminal activity.
The Steganography Analyzer Signature Scanner (StegAlyzerSS) is a Windows application that detects the signatures (or uniquely identifiable byte patterns) of more than 50 of those applications and provides an automated extraction capability, a “point-click-and-extract” interface, for a growing number of those applications. Discovery of a steganography signature during a digital forensics examination is proof that the application was used to hide information within a particular carrier file.
The Steganography Analyzer Real-Time Scanner (StegAlyzerRTS) is the world’s first commercially available network security appliance capable of detecting the fingerprints (or hash values) of file and registry artifacts associated with over 1,150 steganography applications and the signatures (or uniquely identifiable byte patterns) of more than 50 of those applications in real-time. The StegAlyzerRTS Management Console is a Windows application used by network administrators to manage the StegAlyzerRTS appliance.
Each of these software applications were subjected to the rigorous Microsoft-designed tests for compatibility and reliability with Windows 8 and was found to meet all of the technical requirements of the Windows 8 Logo Program.
Our customers can be assured that StegAlyzerAS, StegAlyzerSS, and the StegAlyzerRTS Management Console will install readily every time and keep the number of crashes, hangs, and restarts to a minimum.
“We are committed to providing the very highest quality software to our valued customers. Earning the right to use the Compatible with Windows 8 logo is evidence of that commitment” said Bart Guerreri, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Backbone Security.
