What are the different options for the E3 Platform?

We have many different options for using E3. You can select from the following:

  • E3:Universal-Examination of everything.
  • E3:P2C-Examination of computer-related data.
  • E3:DS-Examination of mobile and IoT data.
  • E3:EMX-Examination of local email archives.
  • E3:NEMX-Examination of network email archives.
Is it hard to start using the E3 Platform?

Many tools make it difficult to get started using them. Not with Paraben, you have an interface that works left to right and follows the proper investigative steps of Evidence – Analysis – Reporting you are gathering data in 3 easy steps

How do I get qualified for court with the E3 Platform?

We offer an introduction certification with our tools so that you can become a certified operator without any further cost. Additional certifications are available in the other specialized courses. Contact training@paraben.com for more details.

Why is the E3 Platform so cost effective?

Perhaps the better question is why are the other tools so expensive. With some tools being 200x more in the price you have to look if you get 200x more results.

We believe in the philosophy of being affordable for any sized lab. The ability to process through data as evidence or risk assessment should not be out of reach because of the price.

What are my licensing options?

We license with a variety of options. Our most common is a perpetual license so you have a license fee up front and a subscription fee to maintain the updates on the software. Contact sales@paraben.com for a quote.

Is there a trial so I can see for myself?

We are happy to provide customers with access to the Paraben Experience. What this means is your trial is 100% functional with everything we have to offer including our customer service and support team. Get started by emailing trial@paraben.com and our team will walk you through.

Training FAQ

What if I don’t own Paraben tools should I still attend?

Our courses do use Paraben’s E3 Platform as the primary platform for labs. However, the course details are all fundamentally based on the topic and are not focused on the product.

Do I receive software with my course?

Software is not included in the course costs. However, discounts are available for students that are attending on software purchases.

Can I attend a course more than once?

We do allow students to re-audit a class once they have taken it as long as it is within 6 months of when they attended the first course. This option is only available if seats are available in the course. There is no fee to audit the course.

We do have special educational packages for colleges and universities. You can contact our sales staff to see what available discounts there are, and options for attending our courses at a discount as well.
