•Extreme Speed Built for Today's and Tomorrow's Hard Drive Technology: Built to work with the fastest hard drives available, the unit capture, authenticates and sanitizes at SATA-3 speed (37 GB/min top capability). This technology not only allows the unit to take advantage of today's fastest hard drive speeds but also allows the user to be prepared for tomorrow's future hard drive speed improvements.
•Rugged Design: The new rugged unit comes built in a shock absorbent case that allows investigators to easily carry, store and utilize the unit in even the toughest environments. The unit is simple to transport, set-up and store and easily fits under a standard airplane seat.
Cable-less Hard Drive Slots: Unit features two “slide-in” cable-less hard drive slots for the "Suspect" hard drives as well as two “slide-in” cable-less hard drive slots for the "Evidence" hard drives.
•One side Protected "Suspect" Port: For the protection of the user's original images, the unit provides one standard write protected native SATA/SAS "Suspect" port and one standard write protected native USB 2.0 "Suspect" port for the duplication of up to three "Evidence" drives.
•Multiple "Evidence" Ports: The unit provides three native SATA/SAS "Evidence" ports and three USB 2.0 "Evidence" ports to allow the user to to capture images from a single hard drive into three hard drives. In addition one of the "Evidence" ports can be re-configured by the user to be a write protected port and act as "Suspect" port. This allows the user to capture of two two different "Suspect" drives into two separate "Evidence" drives simultaneously.
•Expansion Box: The unit is designed with a built-in support to connect to an optional Expansion Box, and provides the capability to capture data from additional devices which have interfaces not natively available on the unit. The Expansion box is configured with the following hardware:
1) FireWire 1394 PCI-Express card for connecting 1394A(1 Port) or 1394B(2 Ports) mass storage devices.
2) SCSI Ultra320 PCI-Express card for connecting SCSI mass storage devices. The Solo-4 can capture from two SCSI "Suspect" hard drives simultaneously with no speed degradation(*).
3) PCI-Express to ExpressCard 34 Reader for connecting a broad range of Express Card compliant cards, such as Express Card USB 3.0 adapter cards than enable user to connect USB 3.0 mass storage devices(**).
(*)External Multi-Output Power Adapter (not supplied) is required to power the second SCSI drive when capturing two SCSI hard drives to two "Evidence" hard drives simultaneously. It is also recommended to use the External Multi-Output Power Adapter to power two or more external drives connected to the Expansion Box.
(**)ExpressCards are not supplied with the Expansion Option.
Also the Expansion Box can be configured with other controllers to support different interfaces such as the support for Fiber Channel drives.
•“On the fly” Drive Image Encryption*: Utilizing the built-in AES256 Encryption Technology the unit encrypts with minimal speed degradation all digital data during the Acquisition Process for the purpose of safe guarding sensitive information. The unit creates a secure key with a user-chosen pass phrase. An AES256 encryption key is then generated by the unit and can be saved to any USB thumb drive. The encrypted drive can be decrypted on the fly utilizing the unit or any regular PC loaded with the ICS free decryption utility and the USB thumb drive containing the saved key. User can then safely image the decrypted data to an additional "Evidence" drive. The unit supports the AES256-bit block cipher Encryption Standard, which has been approved by NIST and chosen in the US as the government standard. The unit AES Encryption Algorithm is hardware based and is embedded and implemented directly through the unit's VIA Nano Processor. VIA Technologies, VIA Nano Processor has been validated as correctly implementing the AES algorithm as indicated in the attached NIST report titled,"The Advanced Encryption Standard Algorithm Validation List." See Validation # 1229.
* This process is NOT compatible with the DiskCypher product line.
•Windows 7 Operating System: The unit runs on the highly stable and proven Windows 7 Operating System. Unit can be customized to individual organization needs upon request.
•Drive Wiping: Supports single pass or full DoD drive "Sanitizing".
Multiple Hash Verifications: The unit can authenticate an image using SHA-1, SHA-2, MD-5 of the captured "Suspect" hard drive.
•Uploads "Suspect" Images to Network Storage: With the use of the unit, user can upload "Suspect" drive Data Images to Networked Storage Area using 1 Gigabit Ethernet Connection for the purpose of sharing, processing and archiving.
•Preview Data directly on the Unit: User can preview active files on the "Suspect" hard drive utilizing Windows 7 file viewers.
