Extreme Speed Builtfor Today's and Tomorrow's Hard Drive Technology: Built to work with the fastest hard drivesavailable, the unit capture, authenticates and sanitizes at SATA-3 speed (32GB/min top capability). This technology not only allows the unit to takeadvantage of today's fastest hard drive speeds but also allows the user to beprepared for tomorrow's future hard drive speed improvements.
Rugged Design: The Rugged unit comes built in a shock absorbent casethat allows investigators to easily carry, store and utilize the unit in eventhe toughest environments. The unit is simple to transport, set-up and storeand easily fits under a standard airplane seat.
Cable-less Hard Drive Slots: Unit features two "slide-in" cable-lesshard drive slots for the "Suspect" hard drives as well as two"slide-in" cable-less hard drive slots for the "Evidence" harddrives.
One side Protected "Suspect" Port: For the protectionof the user's original images, the unit provides one standard write protectednative SATA/SAS "Suspect" port and one standard write protectednative USB 2.0 "Suspect" port for the duplication of up to three"Evidence" drives.
Multiple "Evidence" Ports: Theunit provides three native SATA/SAS "Evidence" ports and three USB2.0 "Evidence" ports to allow the user to to capture images from asingle hard drive into three hard drives. In addition one of the"Evidence" ports can be re-configured by the user to be a writeprotected port and act as "Suspect" port. This allows the user tocapture from two different "Suspect" drives into two separate"Evidence" drives simultaneously.
Expansion Box: The unit is designed with a built-in support to connectto an optional Expansion Box,and provides the capability to capture data from additional devices which haveinterfaces not natively available on the unit. The Expansion box is configuredwith the following hardware:
1) FireWire 1394 PCI-Express card for connecting 1394A(1 Port) or 1394B(2Ports) mass storage devices.
2) SCSI Ultra320 PCI-Express card for connecting SCSI mass storage devices.With the unit user can capture from two SCSI "Suspect" hard drivessimultaneously with no speed degradation(*).
3) PCI-Express to ExpressCard 34 Reader for connecting a broad range of ExpressCard compliant cards, such as Express Card USB 3.0 adapter cards than enableuser to connect USB 3.0 mass storage devices(**).
(*)ExternalMulti-Output Power Adapter (not supplied) is required to power thesecond SCSI drive when capturing two SCSI hard drives to two"Evidence" hard drives simultaneously. It is also recommended to usethe External Multi-Output Power Adapter to power two or more external drivesconnected to the Expansion Box.
(**)ExpressCards are not supplied with the Expansion Option.
Also the Expansion Box can be configured with other controllers to supportdifferent interfaces such as the support for Fiber Channel drives.
"On the fly" DriveImage Encryption*: Utilizing thebuilt-in AES256 Encryption Technology the unit encrypts with minimal speeddegradation all digital data during the Acquisition Process for the purpose ofsafe guarding sensitive information. The unit creates a secure key with auser-chosen pass phrase. An AES256 encryption key is then generated by the unitand can be saved to any USB thumb drive. The encrypted drive can be decryptedon the fly utilizing the unit or any regular PC loaded with the ICS freedecryption utility and the USB thumb drive containing the saved key. User canthen safely image the decrypted data to an additional "Evidence" drive.The unit supports the AES256-bit block cipher Encryption Standard, which hasbeen approved by NIST and chosen in the US as the government standard. The unitAES Encryption Algorithm is hardware based and is embedded and implementeddirectly through the unit's VIA Nano Processor. VIA Technologies, VIA NanoProcessor has been validated as correctly implementing the AES algorithm asindicated in the attached NIST report titled, "TheAdvanced Encryption Standard Algorithm Validation List." See Validation #1229.
* This process is NOT compatible with the DiskCypher product line.
Windows 7 OperatingSystem: The unit runs on thehighly stable and proven Windows 7 Operating System. Unit can be customized toindividual organization needs upon request.
Drive Wiping: Supports single pass or full DoD drive"Sanitizing".
Multiple Hash Verifications: The unit can authenticate an image usingSHA-1, SHA-2, MD-5 of the captured "Suspect" hard drive on the fly.
Uploads"Suspect" Images to Network Storage: With the use of the unit, user can upload "Suspect"drive Data Images to Networked Storage Area using 1 Gigabit Ethernet Connectionfor the purpose of sharing, processing and archiving.

ICS assumes no liability for the security of theImage MASSterTM Solo-4 G3 SATA-3 6Gb/s when it is connectedto either the Internet or another Network. Utilizing the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 G3 SATA-3 6Gb/s for to upload data to a network requiresthe unit to be connected to the network and this may cause a risk of the systembeing compromised. The user is responsible for taking the necessary steps toensure the safety of both the Image MASSterTMSolo-4 G3 SATA-3 6Gb/sand the network in use when the unit is utilized to upload data to a network.The security of the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 G3 SATA-36Gb/s when connected to the Internet or a network relies on the user'sdiscretion; however, ICS recommends, at a minimum, to the user to take thefollowing steps:
The Image MASSterTM Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s is set to have InternetConnection and Automatic Windows Updates disabled as default. Users will needto enable Internet Connection when uploading data to a network. It is highlyrecommended that the user install anti-virus and firewall Hardware Deviceprotection prior to connecting the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/sto either the Internet or a network. A lesser protection can be achieved withpersonal firewall software. Continuously running an updated version ofanti-virus software with the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/smay help prevent an intrusion into the unit or network. ICS recommends updatingthe anti-virus software program every time the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s is connected to the Internet or a network.Users should always utilize a clean (scanned for viruses) USB Thumb Drive whenupdating the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s unit Software orFirmware. Users should ONLY connect the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/s to a network when uploading data. It isimperative for users to REMOVE the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 G3 SATA-36Gb/s connection when not actively performing these tasks.
These recommendations are provided to the user as a reference; however ICScannot assure that the Image MASSterTM Solo-4 SATA-3 6Gb/swill not become compromised when connected to the Internet or a network. Userassumes all responsibility for the data and security of the Network.
