Detego® Ballistic Imager is the world’s fastest forensic imaging tool and an obvious choice for tactical media exploitation, DOMEX and time critical investigations.
Detego® Ballistic Imager forensically copies hard disk drives in minutes (without the need for hard drive removal), either through a USB port if the machine is in a 'live' state or in Boot mode. Its intuitive interface allows non-technical users to be fully operational within a 30-minute training overhead to be deployed against operating systems including Windows, Linux, Apple Mac Systems and is forensically sound, with MD5 and SHA1 Validation.
The Detego® Ballistic software can be licensed to any removable USB device or hard drive and is often carried by front line operatives that need to minimise data acquisition times within time critical environments.
In addition, Detego® Ballistic can also be used in a covert mode for times when you are acquiring data in the public or someone is looking over your shoulder.
These are the average imaging times achieved, however, substantially faster times are possible if the target device is well specced. As an example, we have imaged a 1TB drive in less than 8 mins.
Standard Imaging vs Detego Ballistic Imager Extraction
Limitations to Standard Imaging:
USB data throughput limitations writing data to a single device will result in longer imaging times.
Need to have a single collector that can accommodate the disk being imaged.
Why choose Detego® Ballistic Imager:
High data transfer speeds achieved by writing to multiple collectors simultaneously.
Use of multiple collectors allows to use smaller capacity collectors.
Standard imaging uses a single collector to make a physical image from one disk to the other. Detego® Ballistic Imager is a patented solution for imaging a hard drive using multiple collection devices.
