Today Atola Technology announced the launch of Atola TaskForce, the next generation of evidence acquisition tools. Having optimized its imaging algorithm in 2016 to match maximum speeds drives operate at, Atola now presents a system that further solves the market’s number one issue: time required for evidence acquisition. TaskForce’s robust hardware, which includes multi-core Xeon CPU, supports 8+ concurrent imaging sessions at overall speed of 15 TB/hour.
“We are thrilled to have beaten our own speed record,” says CEO Dmitry Postrigan. “Our previous flagship product, Atola Insight Forensic acquired up to 1.8 TB/hour, which secured its place as the most efficient forensic imager in the world. With Atola TaskForce, our clients are able to image up to 15 TB/hour when running 8 or more concurrent imaging sessions, and it makes this device a uniquely fast and mighty acquisition tool. Certainly, our signature damaged drives capability is supported in this tool”.
Source evidence drives can be imaged to up to 5 targets each. Targets may include other drives or E01/RAW files located on a network server. TaskForce is equipped with two 10Gb Ethernet ports, thus enabling high data transfer rates.
All 18 ports of the hardware unit can be used as either a source or a target thanks to the Source/Target switch. In Source mode is enabled, write protection is enabled.
The 18 ports include
– 6 SATA
– 6 SATA/SAS
– 4 USB
– Extension slot (for Atola Thunderbolt, Apple PCIe SSD and M.2 PCIe/SATA SSD extension modules).
Atola Technology’s focus is on creating reliable and forensically sound acquisition process for forensic experts dealing with substantial volumes of evidence data.
