WiebeTech introduces a Forensic write-blocked docking station that fits in a desktop computer bay

Wichita, KS — January 10, 2006 — WiebeTech has introduced an internal Forensic write-blocked docking station for hard disk drives that offers easy read-only access to suspect drives directly from the front of a desktop computer.

Using WiebeTech's proven write-block firmware, the Forensic Office Dock™ fits right in a desktop computer bay and gives convenient access to power and an IDE port from the front of the dock.

"This new Forensic DriveDock gives investigators write-block access to drives right in their office," said James Wiebe, president/CEO of WiebeTech LLC. "This new configuration of our proven read-only firmware was developed to offer even more flexibility and convenience to computer forensic examiners."

Office Dock features two sets of mounting holes for flush mounting or for extended mounting. Importantly, Office Dock features a SafeEject™ IDE connector to save on wear and tear. SafeEject's special ejection levers help prevent bending IDE pins. An on/off switch and power/access LEDs make operation easy, and with WiebeTech's aluminum design, the unit is durable and attractive.

Office Dock is readily compatible with 3.5" IDE drives, and works with many other drives, including SATA drives, via WiebeTech's lineup of Combo Adapters. It is also compatible with forensic acquisition and analysis software.
