 Product Description

Image MASSter™ Solo 5 Basic Forensics

Validated Speeds of 25GB/min


The new Image MASSter™Solo-5 Basic Forensic Product Line offers a lower and slimmer profile design than the current IMSolo-4 G3 Plus Product Line with similar features using today’s Advanced Acquisition technology offering the same High Speed support for 6Gb/s SAS-2 and SATA-3 drives. The design provides for a fast, reliable and versatile Forensic Handheld Data Acquisition Tool. The IMSolo-5 Basic also replaces the IMSolo-4 G3 Slim Product Line. Sharing the same footprint and features as the IMSolo-4 G3 Slim Product Line, the new Product Line also offers improved reliability with a new internal design.  The new IMSolo-5 Basic offers a more powerful processor than the original IMSolo-4 Generation-1 and 2 Product Line, providing higher Performance for Forensic Data Acquisition and Analysis Operations. The units offer native support for SAS, SATA and USB 3.0.


The unit’s Key Features include the capability of imaging multiple "Suspect" drives to multiple "Evidence" drives simultaneously. Capture Suspect drive’s data in LinuxDD, E01 or EX01 Segmented File Format or as a “mirror” capture. The Image MASSter™ Solo 5 Basic supports SHA-1 and SHA-2 Accelerated Drive Hash methods as well as the standard MD5 Hash method. With built-in Hard Drive Encryption support, target drive’s data can be secured utilizing the NIST approved AES-256 Encryption standard. The units are configured with a 1Gbit Ethernet port for Network Connectivity support. The IMSolo-5 Basic units are also designed with a slide out system drive for easy removal.


  • High-end      Processing Power:      The Image MASSter™ Solo 5 Basic units are supplied with a powerful INTEL™      CPU to handle today’s most demanding Forensic Acquisition and      Analysis tasks.
  • Advanced SATA-3      Technology:      Implements support for 6Gb/s SAS-2      and SATA-3 drives using 6Gb/s SATA-3 SAS Controller technology. The unit      is designed to acquire today’s High Performance drives and prepares the      user with the hardware necessary to take advantage of tomorrow’s hard      drive speed improvements. The unit’s advanced Duplication Technology      provides the capability of performing multiple operations simultaneously. Capture and Wipe standard SAS/SATA drives      with speeds up to 32 GB/min.
  • Hard Drive      Support:      Offers native support for SAS, SATA, and USB 3.0 drives. Optional adapters      are available to support IDE Drives*, Micro SATA*, e-SATA Drives*, 2.5”,      1.8” IDE Notebook Drives*, ZIF drives*, SATA M.2* and Flash media*.

*Available for purchase/Optional Adapters Required

    • Multiple I/O      Ports: The IMSolo 5 Basic offers a total of 13      I/O external ports for data acquisition.       These include 4 SAS/SATA, 6 USB 3.0, 2 eSATA, and one 1Gbit      Ethernet port. Two SATA/SAS ports      and 2 USB 3.0 ports are dedicated for the Suspect Drive Positions. Mixed      Drive Interface support allows seizing data between different drive      interface types (ie. Use IDE "Suspect" drive with a SATA      "Evidence" drive). All "Suspect" Drive ports are      permanently write-protected to prevent altering “Suspect" Drive Data.      The Write-Protect properties of the Suspect ports cannot be disabled.
    • Multi-Session      Capability:      Capture multiple Source drives simultaneously or run multiple operations      simultaneously. With a total of 13 I/O ports, the IMSolo 5 Basic family      has the capability of supporting the simultaneous acquisition of up to 12      storage devices.

  • Multiple      Operational Modes: - Single Capture: Creates “Mirror” image of      the Suspect’s drive. - LinuxDD Capture: Supports storing one or      multiple Suspect drive images on a single “Evidence” drive using the      standard Linux DD Segmented File Format. - E01 Capture: Supports      storing one or multiple Suspect drive images on a single “Evidence” drive      using the Encase® Forensics Segmented File Formats E01 and EX01. - IQ      Copy*: Optional Non-Forensic Format used to capture only the allocated      data of a Suspect’s drive, greatly reducing the time required to capture      data. In addition, it can be used to duplicate drives for IT purposes such      as backup, deploy and upgrade to larger capacity drives. - WipeOut: Sanitize drives using      Single Pass, DoD Standard, or Secure Erase. The unit has the ability to      capture and wipe hidden HPA or DCO areas which may exist on hard drives.

* The IQCopy Option is purchased separately.

  • Multi-Op Mode: Allows seizing      in LinuxDD or E01 and Single Capture formats in one operation using the      same Suspect drive.
  • Multiple Hash      Verification Methods: The Image MASSter™ Solo 5 Basic Forensic supports      SHA-1 and SHA-2 Hash Acceleration and Software based MD5 Hashing.
  • Slide-Out      System Drive: The unit offers      an External, Slide-Out System drive for easy removal.
  • Remote      Access: Using the unit’s built-in Remote Desktop      application or 3rd Party Remote Access applications, multiple      units can be remotely accessed to control the unit’s operation.
  • External Storage: Images can be      stored externally to a Shared Network folder, e-SATA drive, USB drive or      an ICS DFSS External Storage Module.
  • Upload and      Download Images to Network Storage Area: Images files can be uploaded and      downloaded to a Network Storage Area allowing the user to take advantage      of large storage platforms for the purpose of processing and archiving      images. With the use of the Optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection, units      can copy and upload at speeds exceeding 4GB/min.
  • “On the fly”      Drive Image Encryption*: Utilizing the built- in AES 256      Encryption Technology the Image MASSter™ Solo 5 Basic Forensic encrypts      with minimal speed degradation all digital data during the Cloning Process      for the purpose of safe guarding sensitive information.

* This process is NOT compatible with the DiskCypher product line
