Recovering the concealed data that others fail to reach

12 May 2003

Concealed data will pose fewer problems for information forensics investigators with the launch of the Deep Thought Partner Programme by Inforenz, the information forensics specialist. To meet the needs of corporate security investigators and other forensics professionals, the Partner Programme provides the power of a dedicated supercomputing facility to crack passwords, recover encryption keys and conduct steganalysis (probing for hidden information in computer graphics) and recover data that has been accidentally or deliberately concealed.

The Inforenz supercomputer, Deep Thought, is a parallel computing platform dedicated to performing data recovery tasks that would overwhelm other computers.
With an exceptionally scalable set of clusters of nodes processing cryptographic tasks in a highly distributed architecture, Deep Thought can be deployed quickly and flexibly over a number of simultaneous tasks, and delivers results – fast! Organisations in the Partner Programme can submit data – in complete confidence and security – to Inforenz who will take their investigation to the next level by probing the data to recover concealed information.

“By giving commercial organisations supercomputing power that they are unlikely to have in-house, the Deep Thought Partner Programme will increase their forensics investigation capabilities and enable them to tackle their most intractable data recovery problems with minimal disruption to their business critical activities,” said Andy Clark, Director of Inforenz. “As a trusted independent organisation with exceptionally powerful hardware and software, we can investigate the parts that others fail to reach. Our Partner Programme is designed to service a wide range of needs – from data recovery of single files for which keys or passwords have been accidentally lost, to making breakthroughs in major investigations by probing for data that has been deliberately hidden by passwords, encryption or steganography.”

By offering three different subscription categories, the Deep Thought Partner Programme has been designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of organisations. The Bronze subscription, aimed at organisations with infrequent forensic investigations needs or who need to recover accidentally concealed data, gives occasional, ad hoc access. The Silver subscription, designed for large organisations with recurring needs, gives regular programmed access. The Gold subscription, mainly for the forensics investigation divisions in the top accounting firms, gives guaranteed priority access.
