2018 was an amazing year for Atola Technology! We look back at this important and eventful year and want to thank everyone who helped make it very special.

 

Atola TaskForce launch

First and foremost, we have launched Atola TaskForce, a breakthrough acquisition tool for the digital forensics market. It is capable of imaging 12 or more evidence drives simultaneously at speed exceeding 15 TB/hour!

The development process for this tool was as tough as it was fun for the team. And we are extremely happy with the result. It is already being used by our customers in the field as a standalone tool and in the lab by multiple examiners simultaneously.

 

TaskForce software upgrades

We constantly work to extend our tools’ functionality. Throughout 2018, we released firmware updates with 30+ new features for TaskForce which included the support of NVMe drives.

NVMe is the latest great technology from the world of drives: they demonstrate extra high data transfer rate. Despite the high price tag, these drives have gained popularity among both individual users and businesses.

With the help of our M.2 SSD adapter, TaskForce images and calculates hash on these devices.

Insight software upgrades

We have continued to develop Atola Insight Forensic as well. Among other great upgrades, there is now a separate Artifact finder feature. It enables in-depth triage of data on an evidence drive.

More engineers joined Atola

Our team has grown again: we hired five talented engineers! They have already become an integral part of the team and are contributing to our development process.

2018 is the year when we set a new record by participating in 20+ conferences and exhibitions. Atola people traveled extensively to meet our customers and friends in dozens of cities on three continents.

Presentations and workshops

Vitaliy, Yulia, Andrew, and Tetiana held training sessions for our customers and delivered presentations at some of the most prominent forensic events of 2018. Our ‘Need for Speed’ presentation was very popular among these audiences. We explained the current trends in the world of drives, why imaging takes more time these days and how to tackle this issue.

Atola turned 15!

Atola Technology was established in 2003, and we have gone a long way since then. In recent interviews with our CEO Dmitry Postrigan and CTO Vitaliy Mokosiy published on Forensic Focus, they shared their thoughts about the company history, its current state and the factors that will define its way forward.

We thank our customers!

Last but not least, as we look back at 2018, we are grateful to all our customers, who have been very supportive and inspiring to us throughout this year! Our users provided us with great feedback, shared their success stories involving our tools and stayed loyal to our products. We promise to keep up the good work to help you solve forensic cases!
