CHICAGO (PRWEB) August 23, 2016
Ace Computers will be showcasing custom forensic workstations for law enforcement and the military at the Air Force Information Technology & Cyberpower (AFITC) Conference in Montgomery, Ala. Aug. 29-31.
AFITC has a long tradition of uniting Air Force IT experts, prominent IT academics, and America’s best cybersecurity vendors for three days of exhibits, speakers, education, and discussion about cyber defense. The event is especially timely now with the recent spate of foreign governments, terrorists, and professional hackers presenting a significant threat to public and private organizations as well as individuals.
Featured in Cybersecurity Magazine, ChannelPro, and Chicago’s Daily Herald as an expert in the design and build of forensic workstations, Ace Computers CEO John Samborski said, “Our forensic workstations are significantly more complex than off-the-shelf technology. There are a number of design considerations, such as accessibility and the degree of evidence protection, that mandate customization.”
Ace Computers is one of the most experienced designers and builders of forensic workstations in the U.S. To date, the company has fulfilled forensic workstation orders for: the U.S. State Dept., SEC, IRS, FBI, U.S. Army, Customs, state and local governments, N.Y. State Troopers, HIDT (High Intensity Drug Trafficking) grant agencies, and foreign governments.
Ace Computers’ forensic workstations analyze data from not only PCs but also from cell phones and are a key tool in the fight against drugs, child pornography/exploitation of children and also against foreign espionage.
All Ace Computers’ forensic workstations perform the full array of the most requested digital forensic tasks, including the following:
- Support for developer tools and universal hardware interfaces
- Support for hardware-based, remote, and network drive duplication
- Support for duplication and analysis of an array of forensics-related file types
- Fast retrieval and authentication of evidence (including images and files) from a 2nd party hard drive
- Identification of file access/modification dates and times; and creation of file system activity timelines
- Identification of deleted files
- File integrity protection in the form of write-blocking
- Direct linking of notes, images, and other evidence to a case file.
“We are looking forward to AFITC—touching base with current clients and introducing our forensic workstations to attendees that we haven’t yet worked with,” Samborski said.
