Case Management

Simple, reliable case management from start to finish

The Atola Insight's Case Management system automatically records every step of the data acquisition process. Every action performed is automatically recorded (including date, time and hash values) and filed under the assigned case number. When a hard drive is imaged, a media map is recorded that details all sectors that have been skipped along with other vital information. Case notes can be added at any time with one click of the mouse to log information such as the case technician or owner of the hard drive.

Microsoft SQL Server

The Atola Insight Forensic uses Microsoft SQL Server to store case management data. There are two database access options:

Each hard drive is detected upon connection

When operator connects a hard drive to the Atola Insight Forensic, the tool makes an automatic database look up and retrieves all past records associated with that particular hard drive. New entries will be added seamlessly to the database.

Record all case data without stopping to take notes

The Atola Insight's case management system automatically stores all case data and history, allowing the operator to focus completely on the case. This system eliminates the need for operators to stop for manual notes or click a "save" button at any point during the recovery or data acquisition process.

Keep the entire case history at your finger tips

All reports, firmware files, notes and logs related to a case are automatically saved and can easily be retrieved at any time. Cases can be quickly and conveniently searched via Search/Open function.

Recall any case quickly and easily

Any past forensic or data recovery case can be pulled from the Atola Insight Forensic quickly and easily at any time. Just search the archives by case #, hard drive model, or hard drive serial #. After a case is selected, the operator can continue work on it or add notes.

Print cases

All or only selected reports can now be printed (or exported to PDF, HTML, RTF files) via the new Print function.

Transferring cases between PCs

With Insight Forensic, you can export entire case history and all reports for a certain hard drive into a single package file. Then this package file can be sent to a colleague in another location. After that he or she can easily import this file and continue working on the case.

Multiple case export/import is supported as well.
