Voom is offering validation upgrade free to its HardCopy 3 computer forensic hard-drive duplicator customers, facilitating inter-agency collaboration and improving investigative efficiency.

As criminals increasingly use computers to aid their nefarious activities, investigators need an ever wider variety of tools to obtain and analyse computer data in order to track, apprehend and convict wrongdoers. Voom Technologies just released an improved version of its renowned HardCopy 3 (HC3) forensic hard-drive duplicator, and has made available this feature upgrade free of charge to its HC3 customers, worldwide.

Forensic hard-drive duplication requires validation of imaged data via what is commonly known in the computer forensic industry as "hashing." The HC3 now includes the traditional MD5 algorithm along with the new standard, SHA256. As various justice agencies find it necessary to work together, they do not always share the same standard tools. The HC3 now makes inter-agency cooperation easier, even when their analysis tools require different validation standards.

According to Eric Lakes, Digital Forensic Examiner, "Cyber Agents has standardized all our forensic imaging projects using the Voom HC3, as well as other Voom products. Being able to quickly clone a drive, place it into the suspect computer, and boot the computer straight from the cloned drive, while maintaining the chain-of-custody and forensic soundness of the original drive, allows us to take on multiple cases and keeps our progress in various examinations moving forward. For instance, being able to forensically secure 35 computer systems (desktops and laptops) within a day and a half during normal business hours is fantastic. Not only does the process save us time, provide a secure way of acquiring media, and allow us to interact easily with other agencies, but it also saves our clients a lot of money by providing the utmost investigative efficiency. High-performance, economical and extremely effective!"

David Biessener, Voom's CEO, pointed out, "Voom has always supported our customers with feature upgrades, and Voom is unique in that we frequently provide additional features without charging existing customers. This latest feature upgrade is now standard on the HC3, and existing HC3 customers receive this same technology free simply by downloading the firmware upgrade from Voom's website."

Voom stays ahead of the latest in hard-drive speed technology via the HC3, with data transfer speeds of up to 7.5 GB/min., creates two forensically-sound copies of a hard-drive without forensically compromising the source drive, AND runs either MD5 or SHA256 validation.

Mr Biessener emphasized that, 'Voom focuses on delivering high-performance, easy-to-use computer technology. With the latest HardCopy 3 enhancement, Voom continues our commitment to provide law enforcement the latest in computer forensics tools at an exceptional value.'
