Cado Live Imager

Cado Live Imager is an all in one solution to forensically image local system drives into the cloud.

Just image Cado Live to a USB disk and boot it on the target system. You can then upload forensic copies of systems directly to cloud storage. Cado Live currently supports Azure, AWS and Google Cloud.

We are releasing Cado Live free to the security and digital forensics community.


We have released Cado Live under our Freeware License.
