Additional Information

Built in a ruggedized case to work in even the toughest environments the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 RUGGEDIZED is a high speed forensic duplicator that offers investigators the ability to image one "Suspect" to two "Evidence" drives or two separate "Suspect" drives to individual "Evidence" copies simultaneously.

The ruggedized version of the IMSolo-4 Hard Drive Forensic Duplicator features the same High Speed Performance, Flexible Image Formats and reliability as the original Hand Held design. Built in a shock absorbent case, featuring cable-free SAS/SATA/USB connectors with "slide-in" hard drive slots for Suspect and Evidence Drives. It authenticates with SHA-1, SHA-2 and MD5. It also supports IDE, RAID, e-SATA drives as well as a variety of Micro Media cards.

All "Evidence" can be saved as 100% copies, Linux DD images or E01 image files. All "Evidence" drives can be encrypted "on-the-fly" during the acquisition process to protect sensitive data during transportation or storage.

The unit also offers a built-in Gigabit Ethernet connection allowing users to upload images to Storage Area Networks (SAN) for the purpose of processing and archiving images.

Additionally user can maximize resources by utilizing the Solo-4 RUGGEDIZED as a platform to perform cell phone acquisition utilizing third party applications such as Paraben's Device Seizure, XRY and more.

Unit supplied with:

  • 1 IDE to SATA Kit◦2 SATA 0.5M M/F CABLE◦4 2.5" INSERTS◦4 CABLE HOLDER INSERTS
  • 1 STYLUS PEN
  • 1 POWER CORD
  • 1 2.5" ADAPTER Kit

Features

  • Extreme Speed: Built to work with the fastest hard drives available, Solo-4 Ruggedized captures, authenticates, and sanitizes at full SATA-2 speed (18GB/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 improvements. Real world speeds of 13GB/min for Solid State Drives.
  • Ruggedized Design: The new Solo-4 Ruggedized 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. An optional Rechargeable Compact Battery will enable the device to be used in the field.
  • Cable-less Hard Drive Slots: Unit features two “slide-in” cable-less hard drive slots for the Suspect Drives as well as two “slide-in” cable-less hard drive slots for the Evidence Drives.
  • Multiple “Suspect”/ Evidence” Connections: 2 SATA/SAS connections and 2 USB 2.0 connections. Operator can choose to use either the SATA/SAS connection or the USB connection for each of the two “Suspect” positions. Unit features built–in support for imaging of a RAID drive pair (0, 1, JBOD).Optional drive adapters for 1.8”, 2.5”, ZIF, and proprietary Interface / Laptop drives, and Micro Media Formats including Compact Flash, Memory Sticks, SD, Micro SD, Multi Media card, etc.SCSI drives can be acquired utilizing a USB to SCSI adapter (Low speed) or by purchasing the Expansion Box or Storage Box Option (High Speed). Cross Copy Support allows user to image any “Suspect” drive interface to any “Evidence” drive interface (ie. IDE “Suspect” drive to SATA “Evidence” drive). All Suspect connections are permanently write-protected at all times to prevent changing Suspect Data (This feature cannot be disabled). Unit features “Suspect” cable-less insertion for native SAS/SATA drives. One SAS/SATA cable provided to be used with other drive interface adapters (ie. IDE, ZIFF)
  • Operational Modes: Single Copy Mode – Captures one “Suspect” drive to one “Evidence” drive (1:1), Multiple Copy Mode - Captures one “Suspect” to two “Evidence” drives (1:2) Parallel Copy - Captures two “Suspect” drives to two “Evidence” drives (1:1 & 1:1),Drive Wiping and Sanitization (Single Pass, DoD Standard, or Secure Erase), Hardware Accelerated Drive Hashing using SHA-1 and SHA-2. Standard MD-5 Hashing also included. Upload “Suspect” images to Network Storage and/or any attached Network Share through the native 1 Gigabit Ethernet Connection. All processes are done simultaneously with minimal speed degradation.
  • Multiple Imaging Formats: 100% Copy: Bit-for-bit copy, Supports storing single or multiple DD images (industry standard) on a single “Evidence” Hard Drive or USB storage device. User can define the size of the Linux DD image segments. Supports imaging to Encase® Forensics image file. Optional IQ Copy can capture actual “data only” greatly reducing the time needed to make a non-forensic copy for back up or mass duplication purposes. Optional Expansion Box: The Image MASSter™ Solo-4 Forensic is designed with built-in support to connect an optional Expansion Box,providing the capability to capture data from additional devices which have interfaces not natively available on the Image MASSter Solo-4
  • Forensic unit. The Expansion Option is configured with the following hardware:
    • FireWire 1394 PCI-Express card for connecting 1394A(1 Port) or 1394B(2 Ports) mass storage devices.
    • SCSI Ultra320 PCI-Express card for connecting SCSI mass storage devices. The Solo-4 Forensic unit can capture 2 SCSI Suspect drives simultaneously with no speed degradation(*)
    • PCI-Express to ExpressCard 34/54 Reader for connecting a broad range of ExpressCard compliant cards, such as ExpressCard USB 3.0 cards used 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 2 SCSI drives to 2 Evidence 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 to support other controllers and interfaces like support for Fiber Channel drives

  • “On the Fly” Drive Image Encryption: Utilizing the built-in AES 256 Encryption Technology the Image MASSter solo-4 encrypts with minimal speed degradation all digital data during the Acquisition Process for the purpose of safe guarding sensitive information. The Image MASSter Solo-4 creates a secure key with a user-chosen pass phrase. An AES 256 encryption key is then generated by the Image MASSter Solo-4 and can be saved to any USB thumb drive. The encrypted drive can be decrypted on the fly utilizing the Image MASSter Solo-4 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 target drive.
    (* )This process is NOT compatible with the DiskCypher product line.

  • Drive Spanning: Solo-4 Ruggedized allows for the imaging from one large “Suspect” drive to two smaller “Evidence” drives.
  • Image Restore: Restore a previously captured DD or E01 image to a 100% fully bootable working copy
  • Preview Suspect Data Directly on the Unit: Review active files on the Suspect Drive utilizing third party file viewer that allows previewing Word, Excel, PDF, text or multimedia (pictures, video and audio) files prior to seizing the data.
  • Logs and Auditing: A complete and accurate, customizable audit report of all unit processes is provided in an unalterable PDF file that can be exported via USB connection.
  • Cell Phone Imaging Capable: Solo-4 Ruggedized can be used to acquire cell phones in the field utilizing 3rd party cell phone acquisition software programs. Solo-4 Ruggedized currently ships ready to support Mycro Systemation XRY and Paraben’s Device Seizure.
