Sherlock 4:4

Portable Forensic Workstation

The Sherlock 4:4 employs our Parallel Forensic technology to allow up to 4 concurrent drive duplications without losing speed. For example, lets say that one HDD duplicates at 10.5 GB/min. You can duplicate 3 additional HDDs for a total speed of 42 GB/min.

In other words, duplicating a single 3TB drive would take about 5 hours. Duplicating four 3TB drives would still take approximately 5 hours. You do not lose speed. Other manufactures typically install 3rd-party write-blockers and are unable to do concurrent duplication.

In addition to this, our program greatly reduces workload by automating the analyzing process, thereby reducing costs.

8 Hot-Swappable Drive Bays

These top 4 drive cages are for your source disks. They are hot-swappable and write-blocked for ease of operation and quick duplication.

The bottom 4 drive cages are for your target disks. You can read/write to these 4 hot-swappable drives.

Enormously powerful. Incredibly portable.

The Sherlock 4:4 isn't just a powerful machine; it's incredibly compact. Despite having dual Xeon processors, 32GB of ram, and 8 hot-swappable drive bays, it's light enough for you to take and deploy at the scene of the investigation.

Quickest Duplication Speed

As stated, our single unit allows up to 4 concurrent duplication. This allows for the quickest duplication speed while other workstations only allow 1:1 duplication. In other words, with the Sherlock 4:4, you can duplicate 4x 500GB HDDs in under an hour while competing products might take over 4 hours!

Forensics Master

Forensics Master is a powerful digital forensic analysis program. It automates a very tedious portion of investigation. With just a single click, you can acquire system artifacts, user artifacts, browser artifacts, instant messaging artifacts, email artifacts, and more. You can also search for anti-forensic and encryption applications.

Because of its many features, this program has its own dedicated page. Please click here to learn more about it.
