Meet Atola core team


Founder and CEO

Dmitry has a programming and electronics design background. He is the author of MHDD, a low-level HDD diagnostics tool, which was first released in 2001 and immediately became the most widely used freeware disk testing tool in the world. His second tool, developed for in-house use, was created in 2004. Its landmark features were an easy to use interface and the automation of the firmware recovery process.

He believes that forensic industry needs an ultimate imaging solution that is significantly more efficient and less risky to use on damaged media. Automation of diagnostics and imaging will lead to an increase in acquisition success rates and a reduction of costs associated with the process. Before Atola Insight Forensic, there were no hardware or software tools in the market that would provide such level of efficiency and automation.

Dmitry is managing Product and Business Development at Atola Technology.
