PROVIDENCE, R.I., June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- ForensicSoft Announces Release of SAFE Block Win7 and SAFE Block Vista.
Today, ForensicSoft releases two new versions of its popular software write-blocking product SAFE Block, now available for Microsoft's Windows 7 and Vista operating systems. SAFE Block is a software write blocker that replaces all hardware write-blockers. By installing SAFE Block on your field and lab computers, you have a proven forensically-sound write-blocking solution with complete control over all connected disks. Used by federal, state, local and foreign law enforcement, military, intelligence, as well as private forensic examiners, consulting firms, IT security and litigation support professionals, SAFE Block facilitates the quick and safe acquisition and analysis of any disk or flash storage media attached to your Windows PCs.
SAFE Block performs all write blocking operations while maximizing I/O performance, substantially reducing forensic disk imaging times. Conversely, hardware write blockers use proprietary hardware and firmware to block write operations and perform computationally intensive protocol translation from one interface to another, resulting in significant decline in I/O performance. Forensic, security, and litigation support professionals around the globe depend on SAFE Block for its speed, convenience, and affordability. Unlike hardware write blocking products, which require an investigator to purchase a collection of devices to block each common disk interface, SAFE Block is a single inexpensive software program that blocks all interfaces including: IDE (PATA, SATA, & eSATA), SCSI, USB, IEEE1394, Fibre Channel, SAS, SSD, CF/SD/MS/MMC/XD, and mobile devices detected as a "Mass Storage Device" by Windows. SAFE Block also lets you multi-task and write-block every device simultaneously without being limited to how many hardware write blockers you have. No more bulky kits to carry into the field, and no power supplies to misplace or leave behind! One program - significant speed increase - all interfaces - one low price!
Combine SAFE Block with any Windows computer and a powerful digital forensic platform is born. Investigators no longer need to purchase expensive special-purpose "forensic computers" with integrated hardware write blocking devices. Forensic labs utilizing Windows 2003, 2008, or 2008R2 servers with large storage arrays to store forensic images can write protect the arrays with SAFE Block XP, Vista, or Win7 respectively, allowing protected access to your images. For attorneys and litigation support professionals who may receive evidence on thumb drives or disks from clients, installing SAFE Block on their office laptops and desktops will ensure all evidence remains unaltered and forensically-sound, without hiring a computer forensic expert.
SAFE Block Vista and Win7 are available at http://www.forensicsoft.com for both the 32 and 64 bit platforms and are each priced at $399. Bulk discount prices are available for all products on the ForensicSoft website.
