Digital Guardian Releases Free Forensic Tool

DG Wingman can instantly extract key forensic artifacts, such as the Master File Table ($MFT), Windows registry, and Windows event logs for further analysis.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – August 5, 2019 – Digital Guardian today announced the immediate availability of DG Wingman, its new free forensic artifact collection tool for security professionals. During a security incident, it’s critical to collect all necessary forensic data to properly investigate and scope endpoint intrusions. Digital Guardian makes it easier for incident responders via DG Wingman, a utility for Windows which they can leverage alongside their existing tools.

With DG Wingman, security professionals can instantly extract key forensic artifacts such as the Master File Table ($MFT), Windows registry, and Windows event logs for further analysis. Additionally, they have the option to execute custom commands as SYSTEM, or run a full scan of the endpoint and collect metadata from portable executable files such as hashes, certificates, strings and more. The no-cost tool was developed by the Digital Guardian Advanced Threat & Analysis Center (ATAC) team that delivers Digital Guardian’s Managed Detection & Response service to hundreds of customers around the world.

“DG Wingman is highly versatile and can be used in many scenarios by incident responders while out in the field,” said Tim Bandos, VP of Cybersecurity, Digital Guardian. “Forensic artifact collection needs to be conducted quickly and efficiently. We’re providing a free tool that combines many forensic collection capabilities into one to accelerate intrusion investigations.”

Bandos will provide daily tutorials at Black Hat 2019 to teach security teams how to use DG Wingman to collect the forensic data needed to scope an intrusion. Set for Monday, August 5 through Thursday, August 8 at 1:30 p.m. PT, the complementary training sessions will be held in the Digital Guardian Lounge at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center (located at the Level 1 Main Escalator Lobby.)
