Ditto Forensic FieldStation

Stay home, send Ditto: Save time and money.

The hand-held Ditto Forensic FieldStation travels with you or a technician for use in creating local, remote, or networked disk clones and images, including logical imaging of user-selectable lists of files and folders. Configure and manage via network or on the unit itself. The Ditto FieldStation also helps you log user activity and maintain your chain of custody while using forensic (write-blocked) methods.

Flexibility and speed via browser-based interface

An easy-to-use web browser interface supports remote operation via network or VPN, providing access to Ditto configuration, user administration and user rights, as well as direct operation of Ditto cloning and imaging operations. This time- and money-saving capability speeds time to data capture, as well as allows organizations to optimize staffing and deployment.

Create logical and physical images in the field

The built-in menu system makes it easy to configure and perform forensic captures of selected files–without an attached computer. Generate complete listings of drive or file system contents to facilitate discovery.

Suspect Inputs (write-blocked)

Ditto natively supports many write-blocked inputs: SATA, eSATA, PATA, USB2.0. Additional acquisition interfaces are available via expansion modules, such as the Ditto USB 3.0 Expansion Module and Ditto SAS Expansion Module.

Destination Outputs

Use dual SATA outputs simultaneously with same performance as one eSATA (single, dual and mirrored). Images can also be output to large volumes, including NAS and other network destinations, as well as portable RAID enclosures.

Data Acquisition Modes

Clone, DD, E01, L01 with MD5 or SHA-1 hashing. Ditto also offers a combined mode that captures a clone and DD (to different destination drives) in a single pass reading of the suspect drive.

Complete and Secure Erasure

Ditto is capable of sanitizing drives with preset erase modes or a user configurable pattern.

Water-resistant, dust-proof Pelican® custom carrying case available

Convenient, customized field kits are available for Ditto. For example, the Forensic Field Kit D contains a compact Pelican 1450 case, allowed as a carry-on by every major airline. Custom foam includes compartments for Ditto, power supply, accessories, and up to four Ditto Expansion Modules.
