Welcome NetWitness Fans!
In case you have not heard we just posted the latest revision of the NetWitness Investigator Freeware client. This is also an update to the Security Analytics 10.5 enterprise client to NetWitness 10.6.1 since now the enterprise and freeware clients are one in the same.
The Freeware client is intended to provide access to the greater community to support users who need an open source or free solution in certain environments. Allow users to try out NetWitness to get familiar with how to write rules, execute queries, and test custom content.
