Is it really free?

There always seems to be a catch when companies offer things for free. That is not the case with Paraben’s Free edition of the E3 Forensic Platform. We offer you certain features on the platform at no cost. With each of the limited features, we are doing short training videos so you can see how you can maximize what you have available for you in your investigations.

We are committed to supporting the investigative community on a whole and are here to help you be able to work your cases. If you have any issues please chat with us, email us, or even give us a call and we will do our best to help.

We have you go through our trial process to get the Free version of E3. After your trial expires you will automatically be licensed to the Free version of E3. 

Students who are in certification programs require the FULL TRIAL to pass their labs so we have moved all requests to this option.
