BlackBag Technologies Announces General Availability of SoftBlock Write-Blocking Solution for Mac Forensic Investigators

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - October 26, 2009) - BlackBag Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of computer forensic hardware and software solutions, today announced the release and general availability of SoftBlock, the Company's much anticipated write-blocking software application that Mac forensic examiners can easily use to mount and manage devices containing suspect data in a forensically sound manner.

With a uniquely light footprint, the kernel-based utility allows for constant use on shared or single-user systems. SoftBlock identifies devices upon connection and mounts them, based on user selection as read-only or as read-write. BlackBag's new application offers unmatched features, including:

--  Mobility:  Once installed on a computer, SoftBlock is always readily
    available for use, which means one less piece of equipment to manage while
    on the go.
--  Speed:  SoftBlock enables device mounting and management directly from
    the user's computer. This allows a quick preview before further analysis,
    expediting investigation time.
--  Affordability:  With no capacity constraints and seamless integration
    into the examiner's workflow, SoftBlock costs significantly less than the
    multiple hardware blockers required to manage the same load.
--  Security:  Safeguards such as "Always On" protection and double
    confirmation in mounting new devices read-write ensure evidence is
    preserved intact.
    

"BlackBag's release of SoftBlock stands as yet another example of our commitment to innovation within the Mac forensic field," said Derrick Donnelly, chief technology officer at BlackBag Technologies. "Driven directly by the needs of today's Mac examiners, SoftBlock focuses on providing consistent protection for mounted devices, as well as unparalleled convenience and simplicity for the examiner. BlackBag is pleased to unveil SoftBlock as an affordable, easy tool for use by both corporate and law enforcement Mac forensic examiners."

SoftBlock is available for $239. For more information on BlackBag's SoftBlock write-blocking software application, visit www.blackbagtech.com.
