New Tableau™ Forensic Imaging Bay Adds Fast, Cable-free SATA Imaging Capacity to Forensic Workstations (28 August 2013)

Innovative New Write Blocker Offers Exceptional SATA Forensic Imaging, Support for Multiple Drive Sizes, and USB 3.0 Integration

PASADENA, Calif. (August 28, 2013) -- Guidance Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, announced today the availability of its Tableau™ T3iu Forensic SATA Imaging Bay, which adds SATA imaging capacity to forensic workstations via USB 3.0 bandwidth with no drive cables required.

"Storage devices continue to increase in size and data transfer speeds. The need for faster write blockers to help reduce imaging backlogs has never been greater," said Jim Borecki, vice president of the forensic business unit for Guidance Software. "We built the new Forensic SATA Imaging Bay to enable very fast and efficient SATA hard-drive acquisitions. USB 3.0 offers the data transfer bandwidth that supports the integration and use of multiple T3iu's into a single forensic workstation. This product provides a practical path to adding SATA imaging power to either new or existing forensic workstations."

The Tableau T3iu is effectively three products packaged into one half-height, bay-mount package: a write-blocker, a drive cooler, and a suspect drive tray. Its unique design supports cable-free imaging of either 3.5 inch or 2.5 inch SATA hard drives. The Tableau T3iu enables forensic investigators to:

  • Parallelize SATA imaging using USB 3.0 bandwidth
  • Integrate with Tableau T35689iu products
  • Work faster with outstanding SATA imaging speeds
  • Perform reliable "hot swaps" of hard disk drives
  • Use the available USB bandwidth to integrate multiple write-blockers with a single forensic workstation

The innovative Tableau T3iu addresses principal needs of investigators in a lab environment by reducing the effort and time investigators spend removing and replacing hard drives while increasing the speed at which drives are duplicated.

Guidance Launches New High Availability Forensic Modular Storage Solutions (01 Dec 2010)

Tableau TMSS-IIO1 Product Provides Affordable and Reliable RAID Storage

WAUKESHA, WI, November 16, 2010 -- Guidance Software, Inc. today announced the availability of the new Tableau TMSS-IIO1 Integrated Storage Module, the first product in the Tableau Modular Storage System (MSS) Family.

The TMSS-IIO1 RAID enclosure combines space for four 3.5 inch SATA hard drives, cooling fans, RAID control, and host interface electronics in a single integrated unit. The TMSS-IIO1 gives forensic practitioners a compact, easily transportable, high availability (RAID 5) storage solution with the capacity to handle large cases in the field. TMSS-IIO1 is the most compact (5 ½ in. x 7 in. x 6 ¾ in) and lightweight forensic storage unit on the market today.

"TMSS-IIO1 is a strong first entry into the forensic storage market", indicated Jim Borecki, Vice President, Forensic Business Unit. "While the performance of this product is outstanding, the ergonomic features such as a built-in, recessed handle and a unique, patented slot for an evidence tag help to set it apart."

Standalone RAID systems have historically suffered from poorly designed RAID management software. The Tableau TMSS-IIO1 includes the Tableau Storage Manager (TSM), a Windows application built to streamline and simplify the management of TMSS-IIO1. TSM was built by Tableau to provide a simple interface for initializing the drive array, monitoring the health of the MSS hard drives, identifying failing hard drives, and rebuilding the RAID array.

TMSS-IIO1 ships complete with a Tableau power supply (TP4), a complete set of host connection cables (eSATA, FireWire, and USB), FireWire cables adapters, and a 10-pack of Evidence Cards. To learn more about TMSS-IIO1 or to download our white paper on TMSS-IIO1 performance, please visit the Tableau Modular Storage product page.

First Portable Hardware Write-Blocker for FireWire Devices Announced (13 May 2009)

WAUKESHA, WI, May 15, 2009 - Tableau, LLC, the leader in forensic imaging products, today announced availability of its T9 Forensic FireWire Bridge.

The T9, the forensic industry's first portable hardware FireWire write blocker, enables the imaging of FireWire/1394 storage devices and Apple Macintosh® computers in an easy, efficient, and forensically sound manner. Designed and built for field or lab use, the T9 reduces the risk of damage to evidence by eliminating the need to disassemble FireWire/1394 devices prior to imaging.

"With the development of the T9, we've given examiners another easy to use tool that will improve acquisition efficiency," said Jim Borecki, Tableau's Vice President of Marketing and Sales." Connect the T9 to your imaging workstation or laptop using either FireWire or USB, connect the FireWire device you need to image, and you are ready to acquire evidence."

A key feature of the T9 is its ability to recognize multiple logical units (LUNs) - especially common when imaging Apple computers in Target Disk Mode. When a multiple-LUN device is detected, the T9 prompts the user to select the desired LUN for imaging. The T9's approach to multiple-LUN support bridges architectural differences between operating systems like Microsoft Windows®, Linux, and Apple's OS X.

As with all Tableau products, the T9 is fully supported by Tableau's Firmware Update and Disk Monitor utilities. According to Tableau's President, Robert Botchek, "Tableau has a long history of issuing firmware updates to enhance features, to expand device compatibility, and even to fix bugs. Our commitment to continued firmware support--even for older products--assures customers that they will get years of service from our products."

PRTK 6x - 60x Faster with Tableau TACC1441 Hardware Accelerator (24 August 2007)

WAUKESHA, WI, August 24, 2007 - In preparation for the September 4, 2007, launch of the TACC1441 Hardware Accelerator, Tableau has performed extensive benchmark testing using AccessData's PRTK v6.3. The performance gains from the TACC1441 Hardware Accelerator are impressive.

The patent-pending, 16-cell FPGA-based Tableau TACC1441 Hardware Accelerator is designed to accelerate the dictionary-based attacks of leading password recovery applications such as AccessData's PRTK and DNA. Benchmark testing has been conducted using PRTK v6.3 running on a variety of modern, Pentium® and Core2® systems configured with and without the Tableau TACC1441 Hardware Accelerator.

"In our benchmark testing, systems with the TACC1441 accelerator were able to process many more passwords per second than identical systems without acceleration," indicated Jim Borecki, Tableau's Marketing and Sales Vice President. "As measured in terms of passwords per second, systems with a single TACC1441 accelerator improved PRTK performance up to 60 times that of non-accelerated systems. For our customers this translates to higher password recovery success rates. Moreover, by adding TACC to existing systems, our customers will be able to extend the lifetime of their existing CPUs."

Benchmark testing has also confirmed that multiple TACC1441 units can be used with a single CPU. For encrypted file formats including WinZip, PGP, and WinRAR, performance gains are nearly linear through three, and in some cases four TACC1441 accelerators. For example, a Core2® Quad-core system with four TACC1441 accelerators yields in excess of 250,000 WinZip9 passwords per second compared to 1,000 - 2,500 passwords per second for a Pentium® system.

Shipments of the TACC1441 Hardware Accelerator will begin on September 4, 2007.

Tableau Disk Monitor Software Available for Download (27 November 2006)

WAUKESHA, WI, November 27, 2006 - Tableau introduces the highly anticipated Tableau Disk Monitor software.

The Tableau Disk Monitor (TDM) is a Windows application designed to improve the efficiency of the data acquisition process by automating the collection of key storage disk and Tableau Forensic Bridge information. TDM has the ability to track the physical storage devices currently attached to your computer system, giving an examiner the ability to capture, display, export to file, and print a report containing a range of technical information about each storage device. Information collected about the storage device includes make, model, serial number, true storage capacity, and even the HPA/DCO capacities for IDE and SATA devices. In addition, information pertaining to the Tableau Forensic Bridges used in the acquisition is captured and displayed.

"We previewed the Tableau Disk Monitor at the recent HTCIA and Techno Forensics conferences," said Jim Borecki, Tableau's Vice President of Marketing and Sales. "Across the board, event attendees confirmed what we anticipated -- that the Tableau Disk Monitor is an intuitive, easy to use application that improves the forensic data acquisition process."

The Tableau Disk Monitor, when used in conjunction with an IDE or SATA Tableau forensic bridge, lets the user reset the DCO directly from within Windows.

The Tableau Disk Monitor is a free download for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP or later, and can be accessed by visiting the software products page on the Tableau website

Wisconsin Gubenatorial Candidate Talks Healthcare at Tableau (2 October 2006)

WAUKESHA, WI, October 2, 2006 - United States Congressman Mark Green, a candidate for Wisconsin Governor in November, visited the Tableau offices today to discuss his proposed healthcare initiatives with key members of the Wisconsin media.

Tableau was selected as the site of Congressman Green's healthcare announcement because it is a growing, high-tech, Wisconsin-based business, and annual healthcare cost increases represent a factor which could constrain growth. A key element of Congressman Green's proposed healthcare initiatives is Health Savings Accounts (HSA's), and HSAs are a core element of the Tableau medical plan.

"We pride ourselves on being a growing, high-tech business that offers our employees leading-edge, flexible healthcare options," said Robert Botchek, Tableau President. "HSA's are a key element used by our employees to protect their families and control healthcare costs. We were happy to host this event to help publicize the advantages offered by HSA medical insurance plans."

During the session, the Tableau staff had the opportunity to discuss the realities of the healthcare market and how HSA accounts play a role in managing their personal and family healthcare consumer behavior. The meeting concluded with a question and answer session led by the local media, focusing in on Congressman Green's healthcare proposals.

Moreover, the T4 offers "jumperless" operation, automatically scanning the SCSI bus for devices and eliminating the need to change jumpers on subject hard drives.

According to the company, pre-orders for the Tableau T4 have been very strong, corresponding with strong sales of the company's companion forensic products, the T3 FireWire800 SATA and T5 FireWire800+USB2.0 IDE Bridges.

Tableau expects its resellers will be able to start shipping the T4 FireWire800+USB2.0 SCSI Bridge to end users the week of March 8, 2004.

Tableau announces SATA, SCSI, and IDE forensic bridges (5 Jan 2004)

BROOKFIELD, WI, January 5, 2004 - Tableau today introduced its first family of bridge products purpose-built for the needs of the computer forensics community. The family includes Tableau's T3 FireWire800 SATA Bridge, Tableau's T4 FireWire800+USB2.0 SCSI Bridge, and Tableau's T5 FireWire800+USB2.0 IDE Bridge.

The Tableau FireWire800 SATA Bridge is the first native FireWire SATA bridge on the market. By mating FireWire800 to SATA (Serial ATA), the Tableau T3 gives users the ability to run SATA drives at peak performance, reducing imaging time. Being a native SATA implementation, the T3 eliminates adapters and other attachments needed to connect older parallel ATA (IDE) bridges to modern SATA hard drives.

The Tableau T4 FireWire800+USB2.0 SCSI Bridge is also an industry first. The Tableau T4 is designed to burst up to 80MBytes/second (when using the FireWire800 interface), making it by far the fastest FireWire-SCSI bridge ever developed. By combining FireWire800 and USB2.0 interfaces in one design, the Tableau T4 also offers maximum convenience for imaging both single-ended and LVD SCSI devices.

The Tableau T5 FireWire800+USB2.0 IDE Bridge brings Tableau's unique product philosophy to the traditional IDE hard drive interface. The Tableau T5 shares common packaging and a common technical architecture with the Tableau T3 and T4. All three Tableau products use the OXUF922 from Oxford Semiconductor, the premier vendor of bridging semiconductor products. And Tableau has invested heavily in developing custom hardware and firmware, making Tableau's products the finest, most complete and robust bridge solutions available today.

The Tableau T3 FireWire800 SATA Bridge and T5 FireWire800+USB2.0 IDE Bridge and currently in production, with shipments beginning in mid-January, 2004. The Tableau T4 FireWire800+USB2.0 SCSI Bridge will be available in late February, 2004. Tableau sells its products exclusively through dealers, VARs, and distributors.
