PLANTATION, FL – South Florida’s Forensic Data Services, a security firm founded by Robert Moody, is home to The DataFerret 5.0, which is today’s most advanced device for creating a forensically sound image of a computer hard drive.
This innovative product and support service includes a small self-contained device – about the size of a cell phone – that is easily connected to any computer through a 2.0 USB port. Engineered for simplicity so a layman can effectively use the device, The DataFerret 5.0 (http://Forensic-
Moody, who developed The DataFerret 5.0, said “many devices copy our DataFerret -- so there is no longer a need for a forensic collection team with a cartload of equipment to invade your office, disrupting the work routine.” Moody continued: “The DataFerret 5.0 is completely different from a standard collection device and is a universe beyond what those devices do.”
The password-protected unit is fully encrypted so the collected information is protected at all times and it allows you to collect information about the target and enter notations about the evidence and how it is organized while on-site doing the collection.
The DataFerret 5.0 allows for collecting multiple hard drives with the only limitation being the available free space and it allows for targeted collections so you can search by search terms or file types.
“There is no need to have knowledge of the target computer’s configuration, hard drive size or security software…there is no concern for wiretapping issues,” said Moody and “The DataFerret 5.0 is legal to use – because it captures a static record after the event.”
Moody explained that “since it doesn’t collect information regarding computer use or communications in progress, the evidence collected” by The DataFerret 5.0 “will stand up in a court case.”
