Wiebetech Forensic RedPort PCIe UltraSCSI 320 Host Adapter
A new way to write-block
The RedPort line adds write-blocked ports to a Windows or Linux computer. Connecting an enclosure to our RedPort on the back of a computer means the attached enclosure is write-blocked.
RedPort works much like our Forensic Docks, preventing writes to drives. But instead of being an external docking device, RedPort is a PCI card and works within the host computer, allowing write-blocked access to enclosures or drives with one of several connection types.
WiebeTech's RedPort host cards are developed in partnership with ATTO Technology, a global leader in storage interface connectivity. We've leveraged their years of experience with SCSI, Fibre Channel, and SAS technology with our knowledge of our customers' work environment and requirements.
RedPort SCSI or Fibre Channel work with PCIe slots and provide either SCSI, Fibre Channel, or SAS interfaces.
RedPort SCSI uses a SCSI Ultra320 interface and delivers data transfer rates up to 320 MB/s. There are many types of SCSI, but you can use adapters to convert one SCSI connector to another. Use RedPort SCSI to attach to entire SCSI enclosures write-blocked.
RedPort Fibre Channel delivers up to 800 MB/s throughput per channel in full-duplex mode. "We don't come across them often," investigators tell us, "but we need a solution for Fibre Channel drives." RedPort allows us to deliver more solutions for data acquisition to make the job of investigators easier and more efficient.
RedPort SAS uses a standard sata cable to connect to "Serial Attached SCSI" devices at up to 3Gb/s speeds. This is our newest addition to the RedPort lineup, and our first in-line write-blocking solution for SAS drives/enclosures.
As part of your setup process, you will need to determine the appropriate cables to go from RedPort to your target drive or enclosure. We sell a few cables and adapters that may help. Check the recommended accessories at the bottom of this page.
