Built in a Rugged case to work in even the toughest environments, the Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 RUGGEDIZED unit, configured with the i7 Processor and Expansion Ready hardware, offers IT Professionals the ability to Copy Drives at SATA-3 speeds from two Source drives simultaneously. It can also Acquire Data from 1 Source drive to up to 3 Destination drives. The G3 Ruggedized version of the IMSolo-4 G3 units features the same high speed performance, flexible image formats and reliability as the original hand held design. The unit offers over 4 times the processing power of the previous generation of the IMSolo-4 Product Line. The unit is built in a shock absorbent case, featuring a cable-free design, built-in native support for SAS, SATA, eSATA, USB 3.0 and Firewire drives. It also supports IDE, as well as a variety of Flash Media. Designed exclusively for IT applications, the Image MASSter Solo-IV G3 system is a versatile lightweight, portable, high speed data duplication device. Source drives data can be copied at speeds exceeding 6GB per minute. The unit offers multiple Copy Formats such as IQCopy which is an Intelligent Copy method that copies only allocated data and creates, scales and formats Destination partitions. The available Copy Formats include VHD Capture, which allows storing multiple images in a single Destination drive or Shared Network Folder. The units advanced Touch Screen user interface provides ease of use. This IT Data Acquisition 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 data. The unit allows installation of 3rd Party applications.
- Extreme Speed Built for Today's and
Tomorrow's Hard Drive Technology: Built to work with the fastest hard
drives available, the unit capture, authenticates and sanitizes at SATA-3 speed
(37 GB/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 speed improvements.
- Rugged Design: The new rugged 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.
Cable-less Hard Drive Slots: Unit
features two slide-in cable-less hard drive slots for the "Suspect" hard
drives as well as two slide-in cable-less hard drive slots for the "Evidence"
- One side Protected "Suspect" Port:
For the protection of the user's original images, the unit provides one standard
write protected native SATA/SAS "Suspect" port and one standard write protected
native USB 2.0 "Suspect" port for the duplication of up to three "Evidence"
- Multiple "Evidence" Ports: The unit
provides three native SATA/SAS "Evidence" ports and three USB 2.0 "Evidence"
ports to allow the user to to capture images from a single hard drive into three
hard drives. In addition one of the "Evidence" ports can be re-configured by the
user to be a write protected port and act as "Suspect" port. This allows the
user to capture of two two different "Suspect" drives into two separate
"Evidence" drives simultaneously.
- Expansion Box: The unit is designed
with a built-in support to connect to an optional Expansion Box, and
provides the capability to capture data from additional devices which have
interfaces not natively available on the unit. The Expansion box is configured
with the following hardware:
1) FireWire 1394 PCI-Express card for connecting
1394A(1 Port) or 1394B(2 Ports) mass storage devices.
2) SCSI Ultra320
PCI-Express card for connecting SCSI mass storage devices. The Solo-4 can
capture from two SCSI "Suspect" hard drives simultaneously with no speed
3) PCI-Express to ExpressCard 34 Reader for connecting a
broad range of Express Card compliant cards, such as Express Card USB 3.0
adapter cards than enable user to connect USB 3.0 mass storage
Multi-Output Power Adapter (not supplied) is required to power the second
SCSI drive when capturing two SCSI hard drives to two "Evidence" hard 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
Also the Expansion Box can be configured with other controllers to
support different interfaces such as the support for Fiber Channel drives.

Utilizing the built-in AES256 Encryption Technology the unit
encrypts with minimal speed degradation all digital data during the Acquisition
Process for the purpose of safe guarding sensitive information. The unit creates
a secure key with a user-chosen pass phrase. An AES256 encryption key is then
generated by the unit and can be saved to any USB thumb drive. The encrypted
drive can be decrypted on the fly utilizing the unit 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
"Evidence" drive. The unit supports the AES256-bit block cipher Encryption
Standard, which has been approved by NIST and chosen in the US as the government
standard. The unit AES Encryption Algorithm is hardware based and is embedded
and implemented directly through the unit's VIA Nano Processor. VIA
Technologies, VIA Nano Processor has been validated as correctly implementing
the AES algorithm as indicated in the attached NIST report titled,"The
Advanced Encryption Standard Algorithm Validation List." See Validation # 1229.
* This process is NOT compatible with the DiskCypher product
Windows 7 Operating System: The unit
runs on the highly stable and proven Windows 7 Operating System. Unit can be
customized to individual organization needs upon request.
Drive Wiping: Supports single pass
or full DoD drive "Sanitizing".
Hash Verifications: The unit can authenticate an image using SHA-1,
SHA-2, MD-5 of the captured "Suspect" hard drive.
Uploads "Suspect" Images to Network
Storage: With the use of the unit, user can upload "Suspect" drive Data
Images to Networked Storage Area using 1 Gigabit Ethernet Connection for the
purpose of sharing, processing and archiving.
Preview Data directly on the Unit:
User can preview active files on the "Suspect" hard drive utilizing Windows 7
