Sponsoring Arsenal Image Mounter

September 24th, 2018
Mark Spencer

Colleagues in digital forensics, please ask yourselves – do you find Arsenal Image Mounter (“AIM”) useful? Could your consulting, training, or software/hardware organization use great karma and a boost in public relations?

If you answered yes to these questions, please have your organization sponsor more “Free Mode” functionality in AIM! We have users (consultants, law enforcement, military, students, and more) across the globe, involved in digital forensics and many other pursuits, who find AIM an important part of their toolkit. We are dedicated to offering powerful and unique Free Mode functionality to our users, and your organization can help us attack a very significant development queue.

How does my Organization Benefit?

Arsenal will show our appreciation (both on our and the digital forensics community’s behalf) to AIM sponsors by acknowledging sponsorship of specific functionality on social media as well as AIM’s splash screen and GitHub project page. The number of digital forensics practitioners who will see these positive references to your organization for years to come should not be underestimated!

How do we get started?

Contact us at info@ArsenalRecon.com so we can discuss pending functionality requiring sponsorship (or, you may want to suggest functionality!) and other details.

Arsenal Image Mounter Background

Arsenal Image Mounter was born when we found existing disk image mounting solutions lacking during the development of our premier digital forensics tool Registry Recon. Many disk image mounting solutions mount the contents of images in Windows as shares or partitions (rather than complete disks), which limits their usefulness. Arsenal Image Mounter mounts the contents of disk images as complete disks in Microsoft Windows® by including a virtual SCSI adapter (via a unique Storport miniport driver) which allows users to benefit from disk-specific features in Windows like integration with Disk Manager, access to Volume Shadow Copies, and more. As far as Windows is concerned, the contents of disk images mounted by Arsenal Image Mounter are “real” SCSI disks. Since we had personal experience being in a position where a powerful disk image mounting solution would take our project to the next level, we offer the Arsenal Image Mounter source code and APIs to commercial projects with an appropriate license and to open source projects royalty free.
