Your Forensics Assistant in the Field
Digital forensics investigations are typically complicated, multi-stage endeavors that often involve many suspects, devices, and locations. At every step of an investigation, it is vital to observe strict protocols in collecting and preserving forensics data. Having the righ tequipment that can accompany forensics professionals in the ﬁeld, and reliably perform acquisition and storage functions away from the lab, can be a major asset in these kinds of investigations.
That’s where Ciphertex comes in. Our digital forensic system—the Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series—gives you all the tools you need to facilitate ﬁeld investigations, no matter where they take place.
The Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series provides a number of
beneﬁts to your forensics investigations, including:
The Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series performs high-speed simultaneous imaging and rapid triage for time-saving extractions.
The Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series allows investigators to document end-to-end data custody to ensure that evidence is preserved in a forensically sound, court-compliant manner.
The Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series can accommodate third-party advanced analytical tools that enable on-the-spot examination of evidence.
The Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series comes with RAID storage that prevents loss or accidental deletion of data.
The Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series’ forensics software and imagers permit you to streamline collaboration with other investigators, even those in remote jurisdictions.
Trust Your Data to Ciphertex
Serving the U.S. military, federal government, and many forensics and law enforcement agencies, Ciphertex is the go-to high-security solution trusted by the most demanding customers and organizations around the world to protect and secure mission-critical sensitive data.
The ZFS Advantage
ZFS tiered caching makes fetching reads more efficient. Frequently used data is accessible via RAM, while less frequently used data is stored on the device’s SSDs and HDDs, respectively.
Designed to protect itself, ZFS supports RAID-Z configuration and back-up to automatically detect silent data corruption and repair data faster than other file systems.
ZFS Copy-on-write (COW) technology instantly duplicates writes without impeding write speed.
The SecureNAS® Series: Works in Tandem with Third-Party
Software to Provide an All-in-One Forensics Solution
The Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series comes with an array of additional
features intended to aid your investigations at every stage:
The Intel® Xeon® 4, 8, and 16 core processors provide high-density solutions, security, and acceleration capabilities that empower the Ciphertex SecureNAS® Series to uniquely support up to 4 imagers simultaneously while connecting notebook devices directly to the network for concurrent evidence examination.
Universal OS Compatibility
Ciphertex SecureNAS® devices come in both Linux ZFS and Windows servers to provide secure data storage across all server preferences. It’s compatible with all devices—you have the capability to use literally any OS.
