IT Toolbox

A couple of my friends (thanks Chris and Mike) work as security analysts for a DoD (Department of Defense) contractor, and they have put together a digital toolbox that includes applications that can run directly from a thumbdrive, leaving little to no footprint.

The toolbox was designed for use on stand-alone networks, non-remotely administered systems, and other factors. Programs used are for tasks such as malicious software removal, error analysis, optimizations, and security.

Applications are added to the toolbox as problems arise, and this “toolbox” is not limited to just these applications.

Just a side-note, all of the programs are either open-source or free, and I have added some other applications to my own toolbox. I invite comments if you have come across other helpful programs. And please, if you will, donate to the developers so that they will continue to create great software!
