Helix – a live Linux CD designed for live incident response. Helix is targeted towards the more experienced users and forensic investigators.
Due to Helix being a live disc it is possible to run it on a “suspect” machine whilst the installed operating system remains inactive, also live network forensics are possible when running the Helix Live Disc allowing for users to perform checks on networks that their machines are attached to.
Up to version 1.9, Helix was based on Knoppix.
The latest version of Helix 3 is based on Ubuntu.
Helix3 Enterprise is an easy to use cyber security solution integrated into your network giving you visibility across your entire infrastructure revealing malicious activities such as Internet abuse, data sharing and harassment. H3E also allows you to isolate and respond to incidents or threats quickly and without user detection through a central administration tool.
