English term or phrase: software-only tools
Hat jemand eine Idee, was man hierfür im Deutschen sagt? Danke im Voraus!

Today’s ***software only tools*** operate inside the operating system. And if the operating system is not operating, those tools are essentially blind to the condition of the PC. With [name of new technology] you are able to take on a number of different use models, even if the system is unable to boot.
