Code42 Forensic File Search

Search billions of security events across endpoints and cloud services–in seconds.


Security investigations made fast, simple and comprehensive

In business, some things are inevitable. Count security incidents in that group. Systems will be attacked, infrastructure will fail, and insiders will pose a continued threat to IP. No matter how well you prepare, there will be incidents that cannot be prevented. At the core of this struggle is being able to respond to these incidents in a timely fashion. Every minute that ticks by enhances risk and financial burden to organizations. In the midst of this chaos, security and legal teams are often accountable to answer:

  • Has my organization been hit by malware?
  • Are critical files being stored on devices that belong to unauthorized users?
  • Has unwanted distribution of confidential files occurred?
  • Are unsanctioned applications in use currently?
  • Are there executable files that reside in unexpected locations?
