Atola Insight Forensic Systems with DiskSense 2 Unit

SKU: D3001

The Atola Insight Forensic system with the DiskSense 2 hardware is a high-speed forensic imaging and data recovery system with a simple, easy to use, and efficient user interface.

Insight is designed to support retrieving data from damaged storage media.  Where other forensic images stall or abort on damaged media, the Insight Forensic can often acquire a usable image.  When acquiring data from non-damaged media, the Insight Forensic is a very-fast, forensic imaging device.

The Insight Forensic system is comprised of the DiskSense 2 hardware unit and the Atola Insight Forensic software (runs on any Windows PC or laptop).  Physical device extensions (optional) are available to acquire data from Apple macs, M.2 flash drives, Thunderbolt 2/3 & FireWire 800, and SAS devices.  A 10 Gbit ethernet extension is also available.

The system has several key features for data capture in forensic and e-discovery cases:

  • Fast forensic imaging speed up to 500 MB/s
  • High performance multi-pass imaging for damaged drives
  • In-depth Automatic HDD diagnostics
  • Extraction of unknown ATA Passwords
  • Case management system prepares acquisition reports automatically
  • Hash calculation: MD5, SHA1, SHA224, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512
  • Forensic data erasure methods including DoD 5220.22-M, Secure Erase, NIST 800-88, Pattern Erase
  • File recovery for NTFS, APFS (with encrypted volumes), Ext 2/3/4, HFS, HFS+, ExFAT, FAT16, FAT32
  • Support for SATA, IDE, SAS, USB media
  • Support for Apple PCIe (2013 - recent models) and M.2 PCIe SSDs via Atola extension modules
  • Built-in write blocker
  • Optional 10Gb Ethernet via extension modules

Built for digital forensics and eDiscovery practitioners.  Additional detailed information can be found in the Insight DiskSense 2 User Manual.
