Nuix Extends Collection Product Range to Collect More Data With More Flexibility and Fault Tolerance

SYDNEY – July 12, 2016  Global technology company Nuix today released extensive upgrades to the Nuix Collector Suite and Nuix Enterprise Collection Center, expanding its capabilities to include capturing Mac OS and Linux systems, RAM dumps, and full-disk images. Nuix Enterprise Collection Center also includes a wizard for scheduling multi-job sequences and robust fault tolerance features to cope with network failures and interrupted collections.

“Nuix now gives customers a complete toolkit to perform comprehensive forensic data collections for litigation, investigation, data breach remediation, and information governance across all common operating systems,” said Stephen Stewart, Chief Technology Officer at Nuix. “Whether they’re capturing data from a single computer, selected custodians, or across an entire network, Nuix delivers flexible tools to collect everything they need and nothing they don’t.”

Nuix Portable Collector can now collect from Mac OS and popular Linux distributions, and capture RAM dumps from live machines. It can create forensic images of logical volumes or physical disks in E01 or dd format. Nuix has also created Nuix Disk Collector, a simple graphical interface and command-line tool for collecting full-disk images.

Nuix Enterprise Collection Center also captures Mac OS, Linux, RAM, and full-disk images. Nuix has added fault tolerance mechanisms to handle collections that get interrupted by network failures, including the ability to resume incomplete disk images. Customers can also schedule multi-job sequences with any combination of:

  • Deploying files such as scripts, executables, or hash lists
  • Launching scripts or batch files
  • Collecting data
  • Relocating it using the forensically sound and fault tolerant mover engine
  • Copying it or deleting it.

“Customers have told us how infuriating it can be when collections fail after many days because the network connection drops out,” said Stewart. “We’ve created robust fault tolerance mechanisms to cope with connectivity issues, meaning more successful jobs and less frustration.”
