    • Extreme Speeds when performing Forensic capture with E01/Ex01 formats and with full Compression:
    • • The new Linux-based SuperImager Plus application utilizes and optimizes multiple CPU cores to achieve one of the most efficient operations, while performing at incredibly high speeds with E01/Ex01 compression. The application allows users to manually select and adjust the number of threads and the level of compression used during each session
    • • Forensic data capture with Encase E01/Ex01 formats with full compression is widely used operation in the forensic industry, and generally requires a trade-off between speed, space, and the time that it takes to decompressed the image by the EnCase application
    • • Comparative tests show a 20% increase in speed when using the SuperImager Plus Linux-based application over the SuperImager Windows-based application. Tests were performed with the same hardware and the same hard disk drives (filled with 43% of random data), and the same level 1 of compression. The Linux-based application was set to use 16 compression threads
    • Hash Authentication: Simultaneously calculates on-the-fly up to 3 Hash Authentication values MD5/SHA-1/SHA-2
    • Encryption: On-the-fly AES256 encryption of the "Suspect" Hard Disk Drive, saving the encrypted data on "Evidence" Hard Disk Drive in 100%, DD, E01/Ex01 formats
    • Decryption: The user can perform decryption on a drive, previously encrypted by any of the SuperImager units. Alternatively user can use a standalone MediaClone Linux decryption utility application to perform decryption of that drive using any PC. The supplied standalone decryption utility application can be burned onto a USB flash drive that later can be used to boot the PC to the Linux utility, where the encrypted drive and a blank destination drive were attached to the PC. (The user needs to supply to the utility application the saved encryption key)
    • Forensic Images can be saved in those Formats: Mirror Image Bit by Bit(100% or any % of the drive), Linux DD Format, Encase E01/Ex01 formats include options for optimized compression
    • Evidence Drive Formats: exFAT/FAT/NTFS/HFS+/EXT4
    • Log Files: Audit trail in PDF formats, or txt formats with ability to customize the reports and adding company Logo

    • • Erase Reminder of the drive
    • • Encryption/Decryption
    • Parallel operations:
    • Parallel Forensic Imaging - Multiple Session Operations: User can run a multiple efficient parallel operation, since many ports are available. User can mix different type of operations, and each operation is set as a new independent session. Example of operations: erase data from a hard disk drive on one port, hash verify on second port, while forensic imaging 1 to 1 on the remaining ports
    • Basic Parallel Forensic Imaging: The supported modes are:
    • Native SAS/SATA: 4:4
    • USB3.0: 3:3
    • More Ports for Forensic Imaging:
    • With the use of USB3.0 to SATA fast adapters, the unit can support up to 7:7 Forensic Imaging of SATA Hard Disk Drives. With the use of Express Port Option enabled, and the Optional Sonnet 4 SAS Ports Express Card Adapter, the application can support up to 6 to 6 Forensic Imaging of SAS Hard Disk Drives

    • Parallel operation – Linux Elaborated:
    • Hard Drive Detection Application Screen: All hard disk drives and storage devices that are connected to the units will be scanned and displayed in one application screen called “the detection screen”. User can tap on each drive to get its detailed info, as well as selecting it for the desired operation they are planning to use
    • Parallel Forensic Imaging: It depends on the number and the kind of ports that each model has. The application is very flexible in running multiple source/Suspect drives to multiple destination/Evidence drives, all in a simultaneous operations. The user has the flexibility to change a role of a port from Evidence to Suspect, and her is not limited by the pre-assigned "Suspect" ports. The session control application screen provides the user with a very comprehensive information and control over the running sessions, including all the setting of the session, and ability to abort the session
    • Parallel Forensic Imaging - Multiple Session Operations: User can run multiple efficient parallel operations and can mix different type of operations; for example erase hard disk drive on one port, hash verification on another port, while performing forensic imaging on other ports (each operation can function as a
    • new independent session). The number of sessions also depends on the CPU: i5 -4 sessions, i7- 8 sessions
    • Batch Mode Forensic Imaging - Multiple Suspect into one Evidence: User can run in one session a forensic capture from many Suspect drives and save the images (E01/DD) into one large Evidence drive in append mode.
    • Network:
    • Network Capture: Data from network folder can be captured and saved into “Evidence” drives via iSCSI storage protocols.(SMB, NFS, CIFS)
    • Upload Forensic Images to Network: Upload many Forensic images to the local network (DD, E01) simultaneously by using up to 8 parallel equivalent of 1 Gigabit/s network streams
    • Remote Capture - Capture Data from the Internal Hard Disk Drives of a Computer: Using USB or 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports of the laptop/computer, enables capture without the needs to remove the hard drive from the Laptop/computer. The imaging speed is restricted to performance of the Laptop/PC CPU and the 1 Gigabit/s connection (Also if the USB3.0 to 1 Gigabit/s adapter will been used, it will restrict this performance as well)
    • Erase and Quick Format Operation:
    • Hard Disk Drive Erase Protocols: DoD 5220-22M, Security Erase, Enhanced Security Erase, or user can define the final data filling pattern and the number of iterations (Security Erase, Enhanced Security Erase, and DoD erase protocols are NIST 800-88 compliance)
    • Quick Format: NTFS, FAT, HFS+, EXT4, and exFAT
    • Logs and Erase Certification: The application generates extensive erase log files and erase certification (option to save to NIST 800-88 certification format) that are easy to export to USB flash drive
    • Unit as a Platform:
    • File Preview: Browse and preview captured data on the Internal Display
    • High Performances: As a platform, a forensic investigator can, in addition to imaging and capturing data, load and run third-party applications to analyze the captured data:
    • • Cellphone/Tablet data extraction and analysis: Cellebrite, Oxygen, BlackBag, MPE+, Paraben applications
    • • Triage data collection: Nuix/Encase portable applications
    • • Full computer forensic analysis: Encase, Nuix, and FTK applications
      The units have very firm hardware that enables those said applications to run with excellent performance
