INVESTIGATION MANAGEMENT


V-Flex
REVIEWED BY BRAD CAUSEY

Vantos

    Requires Free Membership to View

Price: More than $100,000 for three different product configurations

Investigations are a considerable challenge. Complexity, evidence management, tracking resources and even data correlation pose serious issues. Vantos V-Flex not only manages an investigation, but nearly completes it.


Configuration/ManagementA  

Setup was almost too easy. Vantos delivered a preconfigured appliance based on information we provided about our network. You can start centralizing the management of your investigations immediately through the intuitive Web interface. To fully realize the benefit of the product, however, you'll need to do some additional work.

This is where having Vantos onsite, at no extra cost, is extremely helpful. One of V-Flex's most useful features is that you can automatically query thousands of different systems across the organization for case-related data, as long as you set them up as a data source. Any system that supports a JDBC connection is able to feed into the V-Flex platform.

There are three types of accounts: administrator, investigation management and various investigator accounts. Individuals cannot have more than one role, though an investigator can be assigned to more than one probe by investigation managers.
