HBGary And Skout Forensics Announce OEM Agreement

Skout Forensics will integrate HBGary FDPro into the Skout Forensics Data Collection and Preservation Kit
Sacramento, CA and McLean, VA, August 4, 2010, Today HBGary, Inc., (http://www.hbgary.com), a leading provider of next-generation threat intelligence solutions for government agencies and Fortune 500 organizations and Skout Forensics, a pioneering developer of streamlined digital forensic solutions, announced that they have signed an OEM agreement.

Under the agreement, Skout Forensics will integrate HBGary’s FDPro™, the industry’s most complete and forensically-sound, Windows memory acquisition tool, into the company’s patent-pending flagship product, the Skout Forensics Data Collection and Preservation Kit, a cost-effective technology solution that provides thorough data acquisitions without the need of a forensic expert, while maintaining the forensic integrity of the data.

“We are committed to offering our customers the best tools for capturing forensics data. With today’s malware threats increasingly found in physical memory, it was important that we offer the latest technology to address this critical security issue. We selected FDPro™ because it is far superior than any other memory acquisition tool available in the market today. Skout Forensics is excited to announce this partnership with HBGary,” said Skout Forensics cofounder Chris Coulter.

“Today’s global organizations understand that capturing and analyzing malware in memory is vital to protecting their networks from APT and other threats. HBGary is proud to partner with Skout Forensics and looks forward to helping Skout Forensics deliver this memory acquisition capability to its customers,” said HBGary President Penny Leavy.
