Essential Tools for Everyday Use

Successful digital forensic investigations start by acquiring evidence from a wide array of modern and legacy storage devices. Be prepared for any forensic acquisition you’ll face with a complete set of Cyint UltraBlock forensic bridges. Built to perform day in and day out, UltraBlocks provide outstanding imaging speed in a durable, easy to use package.

A) ULTRAKIT

TheUltraKit 4.1 is a portable kit which contains a complete family of UltraBlock Hardware Write Blockers along with adapters and connectors for use in acquiring a forensically sound image of virtually any hard drive or storage device you may encounter.

Simply select the appropriate Write Protected UltraBlock and attach it to the source drive and use your desktop or laptop to acquire a forensically protected disk image to an internal drive or externally connected drive enclosure

Travel Ready Single or Multi-Product UltraBlock Kits

Cyint Technologies UltraKits take the guesswork out of component selection for hardware based forensic imaging. Available in single or multiple product kits, each UltraKit includes the UltraBlock, power supplies, and all necessary power and signal cables. Multi-product UltraKits are packaged in a hardcase designed for field and travel protection. We also sell individual (unkitted) UltraBlocks for those times when you need to add a specific device to your collection.

B) ULTRABLOCK IDE/SATA

The The UltraBlock USB 3.0 Forensic IDE/SATA Bridge supports write-blocked, forensic acquisitions of both SATA and IDE storage devices through a fast USB 3.0 host connection. It offers forensic examiners the ease of use, reliability, and imaging speed necessary to image today’s larger and faster hard-disk drives – in both lab or field environments.

With the advent of USB 3.0, the clutter of multiple host connections has been replaced by a single Super Speed USB 3.0 port. You’ll have the robust write-blocking technology that is the standard by which all other SATA and IDE write blockers are measured, now powered by the performance potential of USB 3.0. Still just as easy to use as ever; simply connect, power up, and image.

For added security, the UltraBlock USB 3.0 device introduces the new ‘Firmware Update’ button, which places the unit in a special mode for updating its firmware through the Tableau Firmware Update (TFU) utility. TFU has been rewritten for updates via USB, making it easier than ever to maintain the correct version of firmware on new Tableau products.

C) ULTRABLOCK USB

The UltraBlock USB3 Write Blocker sets a new standard in USB write-blocking performance. It delivers a 10x increase in imaging speed and supports devices with non-512B sector sizes. It may be purchased separately, as a single bridge kit, or included in multi-product UltraKits.

D) ULTRABLOCK SAS

The UltraBlock SAS Bridge is a portable hardware write blocker built specifically for fast imaging of SAS hard drives. One cable connects the UltraBlock to a SAS hard drive. It can be connected to your laptop or desktop using the USB 3.0 interface. The UltraBlock SAS operates as a write blocker and writeable device by simply flipping dipswitch #1 which allows you to wipe or format a SAS drive without needing to add a SAS controller to your system.

E) ULTARBLOCK FIREWIRE

UltraBlock Firewire – The First Portable Firewire Hardware Write Blocker

The UltraBlock Firewire Forensic FireWire Bridge is the Forensic Industry’s first portable FireWire write-blocker. The UltraBlock Firewire features FireWire 800/400 and USB host connections, an integrated LCD, and six LEDs for visual status. Intelligent and efficient to use, this write-blocker deserves a place in your forensic toolkit.

The UltraBlock Firewire solves the growing challenge of imaging FireWire hard drives and Apple Macintosh® computer systems in a forensically sound manner. Built with similar operational features as our popular UltraBlock USB bridge, the UltraBlock Firewire enables reliable and efficient data acquisition in both field and lab environments.

F) ULTRABLOCK PCIe

THE FIRST PORTABLE PCIe FORENSIC WRITE BLOCKER

The UltraBlock PCIe enables portable forensic acquisition of PCIe SSDs. With the UltraBlock PCIe you will be equipped to handle the vast array of new laptops and tablet computers that are making use of these high performance PCIe Solid State Drives.

REQUIRED PCIe ADAPTERS SOLD SEPARATELY

The UltraBlock PCIe must be used with a Tableau PCIe SSD adapter for each specific PCIe SSD form factor and connector.

G) ULTRABLOCK USB 3.0 FORENSIC CARD READER

UltraBlock USB 3.0 Forensic Card Reader and Writer

The UltraBlock USB 3.0 Forensic Card Reader is switchable from Read-Only to Read-Write operation. In Read-Only mode the unit can be used for forensic acquisition of information found on multimedia and memory cards. In Read-Write mode the unit is able to write to memory cards for testing or validation. This card reader is the same unit integrated into our FRED systems and are exclusively available from Cyint Technologies.

The UltraBlock USB 3.0 Forensic Card Readers are NOT off-the-shelf readers with unknown forensic implications. Plus, these card readers are SDHC and SDXC compatible.

Devices which store data on memory or multimedia cards include Digital Cameras, MP3 Players, VoiceRecorders, PDA’s, Cell Phones, Computers, and other digital storage devices. Using an integrated USB 3.0 cable, the Forensic Card Readers can be connected directly to a USB 3.0, 2.0 or 1.x port on your workstation or laptop.
