EATONTOWN, N.J. - Feb. 18, 2014 - PRLog -- The New Jersey-based company committed to the detection, prevention and investigation of cyber crimes, CyanLine, launched its revolutionary computer forensic imaging system, FDAS, with new capabilities enabling ‘cloud-based forensics.’ The innovative network capability technology allows FDAS to transmit forensically sound images directly to a secure SANS environment, granting investigators the power to collaborate on evidentiary image reviews and accelerate the investigative process.

“The cloud model is so popular because it enables collaboration,” explained Steven Branigan. “By leveraging the cloud we can facilitate collaboration in a way that has never been possible.” He added that police departments are burdened with having to copy images to media at the request of attorney’s from on both sides. “FDAS allows images to be copied to a SANS directly from the field, bypassing the need to handle, manage and store physical drives.”

The Fast Disk Acquisition System was created to image disks in record time, using RAID disks inside a closed unit. “Our first goal was to simplify and significantly speed up the collection process and image to our internal disks. The image was moved off FDAS via a network connection,” Branigan explained. “Now we have taken it further.”

“Analysts can remotely review the image that is on FDAS, or the image can be copied from the source drive directly onto a SANS via FDAS and bypass our internal storage,” Branigan said. “It is a natural next step.”

The inception of cloud-based forensics has eliminated the requirement for investigators to undergo such a characteristically cumbersome collection process – needing to pause imaging and plug the drive into a separate computer, just to see if the correct image was being copied jest in the first place. “Now, investigators can see the forensic image in real-time, and the network can already be set up, saving time, money and stress over producing forensically sound images,” Branigan stated.

FDAS is known for its ease of use, secure and fast system along with advanced integrated web interface. To learn more about this pioneering product and how cloud capabilities can strengthen the investigative process, visit
