Ricoh Americas Corporation announces that HSSK Forensics, Inc., a Ricoh company, has released a new version of its Remlox™, its forensically sound remote data collection tool.
Remlox 4.1 enables any litigation team to take advantage of forensically sound, cost-effective remote live data acquisition, even in the face of increasingly sophisticated encryption technology.
Precise and validated acquisition of data is a key step in forensic analysis and eDiscovery. Remlox 4.1 addresses the growing challenge of more technically sophisticated "full-disk encryption," a technology increasingly present on enterprise PCs and laptops that until now has complicated remote data collection. Full-disk encryption has often forced companies to pay for costly expert forensic teams to travel to client sites to collect data in an unencrypted state for further downstream processing. In some cases, the advanced full-drive encryption tools have also compelled clients to share ultra-sensitive encryption keys.
Remlox 4.1 solves these problems as a fully customizable remote data collection tool that supports the acquisition of a full forensic image of a PC or laptop hard drive, even in the presence of advanced full-disk encryption. Clients can continue to reap all the benefits of remote live imaging—efficiency, convenience, and cost control—under conditions that would foil most other tools.
The pivotal difference in Remlox 4.1 is that it has the option to acquire hard-disk data at the volume as well as the physical level. The forensically acquired data is protected in transit using AES 256-bit encryption, ensuring the integrity and security of the acquired data.
How Remlox data collection works
The Remlox unit is simply couriered to a custodian, who attaches it to the target computer. The Remlox process then acquires a forensic image of the entire drive. The custodian then returns the unit to HSSK Forensics' forensics lab, along with the included chain-of-custody form, where certified professionals validate the process.
