Fast hard drive duplication for forensic specialists

Voom Technologies : 15 December, 2008  (New Product)
HardCopy 3 from Voom Technologies increases the effectiveness of carrying out computer forensic investigations by providing high speed disk duplication
With computer crimes ranging from fraud, child pornography and even terrorism ever on the rise, it is essential to the effectiveness of law enforcement that computer forensics technology keeps pace with computer technology. To compound this problem, computer forensic labs are continuously backlogged, and law enforcement agencies increasingly are forced to rely on in-house investigations to address the immediacy of computer-related crimes. Voom Technologies, a leader in computer forensics technology development, addresses both of these concerns with the just-released HardCopy 3 (HC3), a faster, upgraded and enriched version of their renowned HardCopy 2 computer forensics hard-drive duplicator.

First-on-the-scene law enforcement personnel must protect the forensic integrity of suspect, digitally-stored data and yet access this data in order to analyze the nature and extent of the crime in question, find the crime's perpetrator or locate a victim. To do this, investigators typically duplicate the suspect hard-drive, sometimes multiple times, in order to sift through information without forensically compromising the investigation (i.e., without altering the data).

Voom keeps ahead of the latest in hard-drive speed technology via the HC3, with data transfer speeds of up to 7.5 GB/min., eclipsing Voom's own industry leading HardCopy 2. As if the fastest isn't fast enough, the HC3 runs single-pass data integrity validation (SHA256) AND creates two forensically-sound copies of a suspect hard-drive, all simultaneously, without slowing down, essentially making the HC3 more than four times faster than competitive products.

Jerry Hatchett, Certified Computer Examiner, Licensed Private Investigator, Evidence Technology -- Houston, says of the HC3, 'I've used Voom's HardCopy units to acquire hard-drives across the country and around the world, and the new HardCopy 3 gets my enthusiastic recommendation. It's faster, smaller, more featured, and still affordable for any size digital forensic practice. Go Voom!'

Aaron Weiss, President, Abyte Solutions recommends the HC3 as well, 'As a smaller forensic data acquisition company, the speed and simplicity of the HC3 allows me to take on much larger data acquisition projects.'

Voom's CEO, David Biessener, emphasizes that 'Voom focuses on delivering high performance, easy to use computer technology. With the HardCopy 3, Voom continues our commitment to provide law enforcement the latest in computer forensics tools.'
