ElcomSoft Employs Tableau TACC1441 Hardware to Speed up Wi-Fi and iPhone Backup Password Recovery

Share Article

ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. announces the support of Tableau TACC1441 hardware to accelerate the recovery of Wi-Fi passwords and password-protected iPhone and iPod backups. The use of a single Tableau TACC1441 device allows ElcomSoft products to recover passwords significantly faster compared to Intel top of the line quad-core CPUs while drawing very little power. Attaching several Tableau TACC1441 devices results in even more impressive gain in performance. Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor and Elcomsoft iPhone Password Breaker are the first commercially available products to support such a wide range of password breaking acceleration hardware including units manufactured by Tableau, ATI, and NVIDIA.

ElcomSoft adds support of yet another class of hardware to the list of devices that help its products achieve benchmark performance. The support of Tableau TACC1441 allows ElcomSoft password recovery products to be used more productively in forensic environments, during investigations, and by the government organizations having existing inventories of Tableau TACC1441 devices. Empowered with one or more Tableau TACC1441 devices, ElcomSoft products are able to demonstrate password recovery speeds exceeding those of high-end CPUs.

Background

Tableau TACC1441 is a de-facto industry standard for password breaking hardware. Easily scalable, multiple Tableau TACC1441 devices can be easily plugged into a single PC. Being external devices, Tableau TACC1441 can be moved around easily, and can be hot-plugged at any time into a PC that needs a productivity boost. Consuming very little power and dissipating almost no heat, Tableau TACC1441 is an environmental-friendly solution that gained popularity with forensics, government offices, military and police forces around the world.

ElcomSoft introduced important innovations to the field of information security. The company pioneered a patent-pending GPU acceleration technology that allows the users of consumer-grade video cards to employ their processing power for accelerating the speed of password recovery. The proprietary GPU acceleration technology offloads parts of computational-heavy processing onto the vastly parallel and highly scalable processors featured in the latest ATI and NVIDIA boards. When one or more compatible ATI or NVIDIA graphics cards are present, the GPU acceleration technology kicks in automatically to dramatically reduce the time required for breaking a given password.

Today, ElcomSoft’s hardware acceleration technology supports Tableau, ATI and NVIDIA hardware.
