Tableau TD3 Forensic Imaging System: Raising the Bar Since 2012

Tuesday, July 08, 2014 (14:37:43)
When Guidance Software originally released the Tableau TD3 forensic imaging system back in 2012, it was revolutionary. Forensic investigators had asked for and eagerly awaited innovations like the color touchscreen user interface, modular architecture, network imaging, and remote triage capabilities. The TD3 also supported write-blocked imaging of SATA, IDE, SAS, FireWire, USB 3.0, and iSCSI (network) storage devices. In 2013, Forensic 4Cast voters named it the Forensic Hardware Tool of the Year.
