ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. has released password cracking solutions supporting Pico’s range of high-end hardware acceleration platforms. ElcomSoft has updated its range of password recovery tools, employing Pico FPGA-based hardware to greatly accelerate the recovery of passwords.
At this time, two products received the update: Elcomsoft Phone Password Breaker and Elcomsoft Wireless Security Auditor. Users can now recover Wi-Fi WPA/WPA2 passwords as well as passwords protecting Apple and Blackberry offline backups faster than the already supported clusters of high-end video accelerators produced by AMD and NVIDIA. Pico support is planned for Elcomsoft Distributed Password Recovery.
Pico Computing manufactures a range of high-end hardware acceleration platforms, offering a computational equivalent of over 2,000 dual-core processors in a single 4U chassis. By supporting Pico hardware in its password recovery tools, ElcomSoft leaps forward in the performance race, delivering market’s best speed of recovery for Apple and BlackBerry backups and WPA/WPA2 Wi-Fi passwords.
Pico’s FPGA boards set a new benchmark in forensic computational performance. Actual password recovery performance with Pico hardware exceeds that of every other acceleration solution supported by ElcomSoft. A Pico Computing M-501 equipped EX-500 PCI Backplane delivers 3 to 10 times the speed of a single top-of-the-line AMD or NVIDIA video card, or about 300 times the performance of a dual-core CPU.
