DFLabs also announced a new licensing model for PTK Forensics Basic Edition, which now allows the right for professional use for registered users.
“With immense honor, we announce that PTK Basic Edition has been selected to be part of Back/Track-Linux“, said Dario Forte, CEO and Founder of DFLabs. “There is no better opportunity for us to celebrate this event and make our PTK Basic now available without limitation”.
This is an epochal change in the history of PTK Forensics. The so called “Go To Free Roadmap” will allow PTK Basic Edition users to work with the software free of charge for use on their cases.  As a first step, DFLabs will allow Back/Track-Linux users to activate the software with the new license.  Once registered, PTK Basic users will also have the opportunity to upgrade to the PTK Forensics Pro version, now available with many additional features, technical support and online training.
“This is just the first step of our new PTK Roadmap” Forte added. “Starting from October 2011, we will also launch the new PTK Certified Examiner Program, along with a brand new training roadmap.  Stay tuned for details.
