Intelligent Computer Solutions (ICS) Adds New Features to Its Hard Drive Duplicator, Introduces New Forensic Option for Mac as Well as CF Adapter

CHATSWORTH, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 3, 2007 --

A. Adding New Hashing Methods (SHA-1 and SHA-2) to ImageMASSter Solo 3 Forensic

ICS has added two advanced and important hashing methods (SHA-1, SHA-2) to its Image MASSter Solo 3 Forensic Hand held Duplicator. The additions to the hard drive duplicator enhance the hashing capabilities and overall improved performance.

The SHA-1 and SHA-2 hashing functions, in addition to MD5, are considered today's standard and most advanced hashing methods, recognized world-wide by all law enforcement authorities and court systems. With the latest updates, the ICS ImageMASSter Solo 3 Forensic can be easily configured to hash data using any of the following: CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, or SHA-2 hashing methods.

B. Seizing from Unopened Mac Computer

The software enables users of ICS' portable hard disk duplicators -- the ImageMASSter Solo 3 Forensic and the LinkMASSter -- to copy the suspect's hard drive from an unopened Mac computer.

The software applies very advanced hashing methods (CRC32; MD5; SHA-1 and SHA-2) to guarantee a mirror image of the suspect's hard drive, with no changes to the suspect's hard drive.

C. New Flash Card adapter -- 9 and 5 Channel Adapters for the Image MASSter 4000

IM4008 (CF 9 Channel Adapter), and IM4004 (CF 5 Channel Adapter)

This option allows mass duplication of flash cards with ICS' ImageMASSter 4000 family. The 9 and 5 Channel Adapters support 50 pin micro card devices and enable our IM4000 duplicator range to copy to 8, or 4 cards at a time. The 9 and 5 Channel adapters are designed for generic flash cards, and enable the copy of any other specific cards (SD, etc.) with the appropriate adapters.
