VOOM introduces 90 day price reduction in line with economic climate

Voom Technologies : 22 June, 2009  (Company News)
Demonstrating its commitment to supporting the fight against computer related crime, VOOM has reduced its prices on all computer forensics and IT products for a period of 90 days.
VOOM introduces 90 day price reduction in line with economic climate
Voom Technologies (VOOM) has announced a retail price decrease on all computer forensics and information technology (IT) products. This "90 day window" that extends through until September 9th, 2009, comes at the right time for federal and local law enforcement agencies, as well as privately owned companies dedicated to investigating cybercrimes. First quarter reports from the Department of Commerce indicated a more than 5% economic decline. The Obama administration's "pay as you go" economic strategy calls for cutbacks in government spending in various areas so that funds can be redirected towards efforts to "jumpstart" the economy. VOOM's temporary price reduction affects the spending of many governmental justice and defense agencies (eg, Department of Justice, Department of Defence, etc.) and reaffirms the company's commitment to "support law enforcement, defence and justice agencies."

David Biessener, CEO of VOOM stated, "Crime is increasing across the board, placing ever increasing demands on justice agencies. Earlier this year a Department of Justice report indicated that, since 1996, there has been a 2000 percent increase in cybercrime investigations opened, and FBI cybercrime labs are backed up approximately 9 months. This is a call to action, and VOOM is responding to that call." Biessener went on to explain, "This is the start of a long-term strategy to bring down costs while increasing value to the markets we serve. Through a series of strategic partnerships, we have been able to temporarily reduce some of our costs, and we are passing on our savings to our customers. Currently, this is a short-term program, and we will be reviewing its effectiveness with our partners. We plan to continue to add value via product development initiatives and to address cost effectiveness through these partnerships."

Among VOOM's computer forensics products is the recently released HardCopy 3, described as a "1:2 portable forensic duplicator" that allows investigators to copy a suspect hard drive in its entirety, including hidden and protected areas of the drive and including deleted files that may be stored in the drive's slack space. The HardCopy 3 enables an investigator to simultaneously make two copies of the drive so that one copy may be preserved and the other investigated without the threat of compromising evidence by writing over sectors of the drive. The forensic duplication process requires validation that the copied drive is an exact duplicate of the original, and VOOM's HardCopy 3 is available with either MD5 or SHA256 "hash" validation.

Another of VOOM's computer forensic devices is the popular VOOM Shadow 2. The portable Shadow device enables forensics experts to boot, run and investigate the actual suspect computer, without having to duplicate the hard drive first and without impinging on the forensic integrity of the computer. Forensics examiners can thus collect evidence and confront suspects without delay. Furthermore, the Shadow allows cybercrime first-responders to uncover evidence in seconds, when seconds count.
