MOSCOW, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. releases world's fastest password cracking solutions by supporting Pico's range of high-end hardware acceleration platforms. ElcomSoft is Pico FPGA-based hardware to greatly accelerate the recovery of passwords.

At this time, two products received the update: Elcomsoft Phone Password Breaker (http://www.elcomsoft.com/eppb.html) and Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor (http://www.elcomsoft.com/ewsa.html), enabling users to recover Wi-Fi WPA/WPA2 passwords as well as passwords protecting Apple and Blackberry offline backups faster than with the already supported clusters of high-end ATI and NVIDIA video accelerators. Pico support is planned for Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery.

Benchmark Performance

Pico Computing manufactures a range of high-end hardware acceleration platforms, offering a computational equivalent of over 2,000 dual-core processors in a single 4U chassis. By supporting Pico hardware, ElcomSoft leaps forward in the performance race, delivering market's best speed of recovery for Apple and BlackBerry backups and WPA/WPA2 Wi-Fi passwords.

"ElcomSoft pioneered hardware acceleration in password recovery", says Andrey Belenko, ElcomSoft leading crypto analytic and the original inventor of GPU-accelerated password recovery. "Today, together with Pico Computing we're breaking a record in performance, offering faster recovery than anything else on the market."

Pico's FPGA boards set a new benchmark in forensic computational performance. Actual password recovery performance with Pico hardware exceeds that of every other acceleration solution supported by ElcomSoft.

ElcomSoft Hardware Acceleration

"Pico FPGA-based hardware is used by many law enforcement and forensic organizations worldwide", says Vladimir Katalov, ElcomSoft CEO. "By supporting this platform, we're entering true supercomputer performance, delivering the world's fastest password recovery solution to the most demanding customers."

ElcomSoft products support a wide range of hardware acceleration platforms including Pico FPGA's, OpenCL compliant AMD video cards, Tableau TACC, NVIDIA CUDA hardware, conventional and enterprise-grade solutions including Tesla and Fermi.
