Cyber Triage(TM) Featured in "World's Greatest!..." TV Series

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Basis Technology announced that its digital forensics technologies business was recently selected to appear on How2Media's popular TV series "World's Greatest!..."

Basis Technology was chosen for its innovative Cyber Triage™ software, which enables the first responders in a computer security incident response team to more easily determine if a host has been compromised or not. With Cyber Triage, non-expert IT professionals have a way to conduct an initial assessment without having to call in expensive security experts. Basis Technology is also known for championing the development of open source digital forensic tools such as the popular The Sleuth Kit and Autopsy.

"Basis Technology is one of those companies that we like to feature on 'World's Greatest!...'. While they are the leading open source digital forensics software company, still they continue to pioneer in developing new technologies for the industry, like their Cyber Triage, which provides corporate IT departments with an automated way to identify compromised machines and therefore minimize the impact of a security breach. That's what leaders do, they pioneer, grow, and lead. We think their story will be meaningful and educational to our viewers," said Gordon Freeman, Executive Producer of the show.

As part of the show, How2Media sent a film crew to spend time at the company's Cambridge, Massachusetts facilities, to find out what the story behind the story is with this great and growing company, and to show the "World's Greatest!..." viewers why Basis Technology was selected as the best in their category, and therefore featured on the show.

"We're honored to be selected by World's Greatest!..." said Brian Carrier, VP of Digital Forensics. "We see Cyber Triage as filling a critical gap in the cybersecurity response strategy of most organizations, and we're looking forward to sharing our innovations with the show's diverse audience."
