ProDiscover Releases New Virtual Machine and Virtual Hard Drive Forensic Comparison Features

Due to the rise in the number of virtual operating systems in the public and private sector, ProDiscover releases its new Virtual Machine and Virtual Hard Disk comparison features, which will assist organizations in identifying unauthorized system changes in an extremely efficient and forensically sound manner.

As the use of virtual operating systems increase for mission critical applications and servers across the enterprise, so too does the risk that those machines will fall victim to compromise. While a virtual environment allows mitigation of an incident to be done almost instantly, there will still be a need to investigate what data may have been compromised and what methods were used to gain unauthorized access. By comparing the compromised virtual machine against its previous snapshots, the examiner will be able to pinpoint the exact time of the compromise and identify the hostile files.

"We are extremely excited about our latest features that will allow an accelerated forensic examination and comparison of Virtual Machines or Virtual Hard Disks against their snapshots. We utilized a similar cutting edge technology that we developed to compare Volume Shadow Copies to the live machine, and output options that allow the examiner to conduct a temporal analysis. This software addition will help organizations identify quickly when a compromise has occurred and what system files were added, deleted, or modified by the hacker’s malware,” states Anthony Reyes, CEO of The ARC Group of New York.
