HBGary, a computer security firm in Scramento, California, today announced FastDump Pro, the first memory acquisition software to offer 32- and 64-bit support for all supported versions of Windows with more than 4 gigabytes of RAM. FastDump Pro allows organizations and investigators to preserve and analyze physical memory snapshots of 32- and 64-bit editions of Windows.
“Based on feedback from Fortune 100 and government customers, computer intrusions into physical memory were one of the top security concerns in 2008," said Greg Hoglund, CEO of HBGary, Inc in a press release. "Some malware is not visible anywhere on the computer but in physical memory."
FastDump was first released as free download in April 2008 for 32-bit systems. The company reports that since its release, several Fortune 100 corporations and 20 of the top 30 government agencies have downloaded the product. The product announced today will be free to HBGary customers with Responder licenses or purchased separately at $100.
