TAC Forensics acquires a super-high-speech, forensically sound hard drive duplicator

TAC Forensic's latest addition to its arsenal of state-of-the-art devices to provide better service to customers is Logicube's Forensic Dossier.

The Dossier is the fastest digital forensic data capture device on the market today, allowing investigators to capture and authenticate at speeds approaching 6 gigabytes per minute. Computer forensic examiners can capture data from one or two suspect drives to one or two evidence drives. This sophisticated solution provides built-in support for capture from a RAID drive pair (0, 1, JBOD) and can capture data from a variety of flash media devices with a built-in media reader.

The versatile Dossier features built-in support for SATA and IDE drives, with optional support for SCSI and SAS drives scheduled to be available in late spring of this year. The Dossier also provides built-in USB and firewire connectivity and features support for most solid state drives and supports microSATA and eSATA drives with optional cables.

What this means is a TAC Forensics computer forensic examiner can quickly and efficiently acquire all kinds of hard drives and other media, getting in and out at the scene in record time. This will not only save the customer money, but will ensure virtually all kinds of computers and media can be acquired, and assignments completed.

"Developed to meet the complex challenges of digital forensic investigators, the Dossier is the cornerstone of a future-focused platform of tools that will allow us to serve our customers much better," said Dave Pettinari, president of TAC Forensics. "We strive to be on the cutting edge of advanced digital forensics technology."

The Dossier also includes a drive-spanning feature (scheduled to be available in spring 2009) that allows users to capture from one large suspect drive to two smaller evidence drives. Other features include DD image files, keyword search, audit trail reporting, and an internal flash memory to store keyword lists, software updates and reports and a touch screen display for easy navigation.
