Small, portable, and powerful is a great way to describe Digital Intelligence μFRED systems. Built to handle the processing needs of modern computer and mobile forensics software, μFRED is a viable, lower priced alternative to traditional forensic towers. μFRED systems now ship with a powerful 8-core Intel i7-10700K 3.8 GHz (5.1 GHz turbo) CPU with 16 MB cache.
Beginning in 2021, the μFRED CPU can be upgraded to a 10-core, Intel i9-10900K processor clocking at 3.7 GHz (5.3 Turbo boost). Each system ships with at 32 GB of DDR4 RAM (standard), with an upgrade option to 64 GB.
Three storage drives for the OS, database/cache/temp, and case data are standard. Fourteen different USB connections provide expansion flexibility. Network data transfers are fast and efficient with an integrated gigabit Ethernet connection. Integrated WiFi and Bluetooth provide additional connectivity.
Scaled down in size but not processing power, μFRED’s offer the performance of a higher end system at an entry level system price. Don’t overpay for performance. If you need the quality and performance that come with FRED systems at a budget friendly price, the Digital Intelligence μFRED should be high on your list.
Need to change your work locations from time to time? Grab the handle on top of the μFRED case and go. The handle folds flush and out of the way once moved. This convenient feature ensures mobility when necessary while minimizing handling risk.
For acquisition, triage, and analysis work that doesn’t require multiple hot-swap, removeable drive trays, the μFRED fills the need. Space saving and efficient with power to spare, μFRED is the preferred compact forensic processing alternative.
All μFREDs include an UltraBay 4™ write blocker for imaging SATA, SAS, IDE, USB 3, FireWire, and PCIe suspect drives. An integrated, hot-swap USB 3.1 connected removable drive tray is available for the storage and process of case work and digital evidence. μFRED ships pre-installed with Tableau Imager (TIM) to maximize sustained forensic imaging rates through the UltraBay 4.
Recommending less is sometimes more. Optimizing system processor cores, RAM, and storage is something we take very seriously. We don’t want our customers to spend more than is necessary for great performance. We test all FRED configurations using industry leading software. This methodology produces systems optimized for excellent performance when conducting forensic examinations.
When you purchase from Digital Intelligence, you’re getting the best forensic products money can buy. But the value doesn’t stop there. You get lifetime technical support and access to a professional, dedicated support team. We measure our success not just by the number of systems we sell but also by the level of support we provide. Whether it’s a question about your FRED, UltraBlock, Imager or software – or a question about a forensic problem you face – we have your back. Call, email, or text. We are here for you.
