Atola Insight Forensic Gets iSCSI Support for Remote Imaging

Atola Technology released a software update for Atola Insight Forensic, a fast forensic imaging system with the capacity to run 3 simultaneous imaging sessions and work with damaged media. 

Version 5.5 brings support for the iSCSI protocol, enabling remote imaging of: 

  • drives that are soldered into a motherboard, 
  • working servers that couldn’t be turned off, or 
  • storage devices for which examiners have a legal warrant to access but not seize.

“We are happy to introduce such a highly anticipated feature to our customers” said Vitaliy Mokosiy, CTO at Atola Technology. “Now, thanks to iSCSI support in Insight Forensic, you can add up to 3 remote network drives simultaneously and image them in parallel.”

The iSCSI support is available for both DiskSense 1 and DiskSense 2 hardware units.

Insight Forensic version 5.5 also features a new status bar for NVMe drives, which enables real-time monitoring of the different properties of an evidence device, such as temperature and power status. Moreover, two more parameters of an NVMe drive are now available in its Diagnostic report:

  • A table with all possible power states of a drive provides details about max power consumption and latency of switching between power states.
  • Warning and Critical temperature levels show when a drive starts overheating. These parameters are received from controller data.
