On July 5, Atola Technology announced the release of a new hardware imager for Atola Insight Forensic. The new device supports simultaneous imaging of 3 drives with other concurrent forensic tasks such as hashing and wiping.
The hardware unit under the name DiskSense 2 is equipped with 6 source ports:
- 3 SATA/SAS
- Extension port (SAS, M.2 NVMe/PCIe/SATA SSD, Thunderbolt, Apple PCIe SSD)
3 simultaneous imaging sessions are backed by server-grade motherboard and CPU. The device’s ECC RAM helps further secure the data integrity. Its two built-in 10Gbit ports allow imaging drives into the network at top speeds.
Software updates in 2021
Atola Insight Forensic 5.0: the initial software release for the DiskSense 2 hardware units only. It is released on July 5.
Starting with Atola Insight Forensic 5.1, we will be releasing software updates for both units (DiskSense and DiskSense 2) simultaneously. The updated functionality will be the same for both systems, lest for the enhanced performance features unique to the DiskSense 2 hardware unit.
