Designed exclusively for forensic applications, the Image MASSter Solo-III Forensics system is a lightweight, portable, handheld, high-speed data acquisition device. Suspect's data can be seized at speeds exceeding 3 GB per minute (Transfer rates are dependent on the model of drives used). Using the unit's on-the-fly hashing capabilities, the transferred data can be guaranteed to be an exact replica of the suspect's data without modification, re-arrangement or corruption. The suspect's data can be seized using the unit's direct drive to drive interface or using the unit's external Firewire/USB interface to seize data from a suspect's unopened PC. The IMSOLO-III Forensics unit supports seizing from IDE, Serial ATA and SCSI hard disk drives, including ATA compatible solid state devices.
