The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS IT Enterprise Super Kit from ICS is controlled via a touchscreen and offers IT professionals the ability to simultaneously capture from two source hard drives to two destination hard drives using SATA III 6 Gb/s technology at speeds up to 7 GB/minute. It can also capture from one source hard drive and transfer the data to up to three destination hard drives. SAS, SATA, eSATA, USB 3.0, and FireWire drives are natively supported, operations are powered by an Intel Core i7 processor, and drive copies are authenticated with SHA or MD5 algorithms. Also supported are IDE and a variety of flash media, while an included Expansion Box adds support for SCSI drives and also includes an ExpressCard 34/54 reader. For those who require Fibre Channel support, the Expansion Box can be modified using a separate Fibre Channel Control Card.

When a source drive is copied to an destination drive, the data can be saved using IQCopy mode, which copies only allocated files, Percent of Disk, which copies all sectors including unused ones and supports any operating system, Multi-MASSter, which allows for the duplication of stored images of hard drives, and VHD Capture which allows the storing multiple images in a single destination drive or shared network folder. All destination drives can also be encrypted on-the-fly during the acquisition phase to help protect sensitive data during transportation or storage. Gigabit Ethernet connectivity is also offered, allowing users to upload drive images to a Storage Area Network (SAN) for processing and archiving. For those who require 3rd party application support, the unit supports installation of these apps.

The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS operates using the Windows operating system. Included with this drive acquisition unit are four SAS data cables and power cables, an IDE to SAS adapter kit, a 2.5" drive adapter, a 150W power supply, a power cord, and a touch pen. Additionally, the Super Kit configuration also includes an expansion box configured with a 1394 / SCSI / PCIe card reader, a mini USB mouse, a mini-USB keyboard, a 4-port mini-USB 2.0 hub, mini speakers with jack headphones, a Wi-Fi USB 2.0 adapter, a DVD drive with an eSATA connection, a LinkMASSter option for seizing data from unopened laptops, and a LinkMASSter MAC option. All of the included items come in a hard rolling case.

General Features

Built to work with fast hard drives, this unit duplicates and sanitizes at SATA III 6 Gb/s speeds (7 GB/minute max). This technology not only allows the unit to take advantage of today's fast hard drive speeds, but also allows the user to be prepared for tomorrow's future hard drive speed improvements.
One Default Write-Protected "Source" Port
For the protection of the user's original images, the unit provides one standard write protected native SATA/SAS source port and one standard write-protected native USB 2.0 source port. This allows for the duplication of up to three target drives.
Optional Adapters
These units allow users to copy from IDE drives, 1.8" ZIF, 2.5" laptop drives, and flash media such as CompactFlash, Memory Sticks, SD, microSD, MMC, external RAIDs, etc.
Multiple "Target" Ports
Provides three native SATA/SAS target ports and three native USB 2.0 target ports to allow the user to make up to three copies of a single drive. One of the target ports can be re-configured as a write protected port and can be used safely as source port in order to duplicate two different source drives into two target hard drives simultaneously.
Multiple Operational Modes:
  • Single-Source Copy Mode: Allows duplicating from one source drive to up to three target drives.
  • Multi-Source Copy Mode: Allows duplicating from two source drives to two individual target drives.
  • Multi-Operational Mode: Allows performing different operations simultaneously, such as duplicating some drives while sanitizing other drives.
  • Multi-MASSter Mode: Allows the duplication of up to three different target hard drives from images stored on a single source drive. For the user's convenience, this mode allows for multiple images to be stored on a singe source drive.
  • Windows Operating System
    The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS IT Enterprise Super Kit runs on the Windows operating system, providing flexibility and device compatibility support.
    Multiple Imaging Formats
  • IQCopy: Copies only allocated files, greatly reducing copy time and automatically scaling and formatting partitions.
  • Percent of Disk: Copies all sectors, including unused sectors and supports any operating system.
  • Multi-MASSter: Allows for the duplication of stored hard drive images.
  • VHD Capture: Allows storing multiple images in a single destination drive or shared network folder.
  • Drive Wiping
    Supports single-pass or multi-pass wiping using DoD standards to erase all hard drive data.
    Expansion Box
    The unit is designed with built-in support to connect to an Expansion Box, providing the capability exists to capture data from additional devices which have interfaces not natively available on the unit. The Expansion Box is configured with the following hardware:
  • FireWire 1394 PCIe card for connecting 1394a (one port) or 1394b (two port) mass storage devices
  • SCSI Ultra320 PCIe card for connecting SCSI mass storage devices. The unit can copy from two SCSI hard drives simultaneously
  • PCIe to ExpressCard 34 reader for connecting a broad range of ExpressCard compliant cards, such as ExpressCard USB 3.0 cards adapter used to connect USB 3.0 mass storage devices
  • An External Multi-Output Power Adapter (not supplied) is required to power the second SCSI drive when the unit copies from two SCSI drives simultaneously. It is also recommended to use the External Multi-Output Power Adapter to power two or more external drives connected to the Expansion Box
  • ExpressCards are not supplied with the Expansion Box
  • The Expansion Box can be configured with different controllers to support other interfaces, such as Fibre Channel
  • "On the Fly" Drive Image Encryption
    Utilizing built-in AES 256-bit encryption technology, this unit encrypts all digital data with minimal speed degradation during the acquisition process for the purpose of safe guarding sensitive information. The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS IT Enterprise creates a secure key with a user-chosen pass phrase and an AES 256-bit encryption key is then generated by the unit that can be saved to any USB thumb drive. The encrypted drive can be decrypted on the fly utilizing the Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS IT Enterprise or any regular PC loaded with the ICS free decryption utility and the USB thumb drive containing the saved key. Users can then safely image the decrypted data to an additional target drive. The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS IT Enterprise supports the AES 256-bit block cipher encryption standard, which has been approved by NIST and chosen in the US as the government standard. The Image MASSter Solo-4 G3 PLUS' AES Encryption Algorithm is hardware based and is embedded and implemented directly through the unit's VIA Nano processor.
    Upload and Download Images to Storage Area Networks (SAN)
    By connecting the unit to a network, users can uploaded and downloaded images of source hard drive to a Storage Area Network (SAN). This will allow the user to take advantage of large storage platforms for the purpose of sharing, processing, and archiving.
    Preview Data
    User can preview active files on the unit of the source drive by utilizing Windows file viewing capabilities in a write-protected environment.
    USB Card Reader Support
    Optional 3rd party USB card reader support allows use of flash media such as CompactFlash, Memory Sticks, SD, microSD, MMC, etc.
    Write Protection
    By default, the source port is permanently write-protected. Optionally, any target port can be write-protected when used as a source port in multiple source Copy Mode to help avoid any accidental overwrites to the original hard drive.
    Hashing and Data Verification
    The unit provides read back verification and hashing authentication methods using MD5, SHA1, or SHA2 algorithms for data integrity verification.
