Themis Computer has announced a new family of PPC64™ VMEbus computers. The PPC64 is Themis’ first in a new family of 6U VMEbus computer boards based on the IBM® PowerPC® 970FX processor. Two PPC64 configurations are available; a single processor single slot computer and a dual-processor, symmetric multiprocessing, two-slot solution. The PowerPC 970FX processor provides maximum performance for existing 32-bit applications and new 64-bit applications.

With the addition of the PPC64 to its rapidly growing product family, Themis offers the industry’s widest breadth of rugged, high performance VME embedded computers. The 1.8 GHz PPC64, in a single-slot configuration, can be configured with up to 4 GBytes of DDR400 memory and includes a Gigabit Ethernet port and support for Dual Ultra320 SCSI drives. The single-processor PPC64 also includes a high performance Universe II VME64x interface, two 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports, two USB ports, AC97 audio, and two serial ports. A second processor may be added, in a second VME slot, communicating with the baseboard via a Hyper-transport link.

Higher levels of I/O integration can be achieved by adding up to two PCI carrier cards, hosting up to six PMC slots. A combined two PMC slot carrier and local on-board I/O, is also available.

”Our PPC64 family of single board computers offers users a greater selection of VME bus computing solutions that deliver the high performance and reliability required for today’s increasingly demanding applications,” stated William E. Kehret, president of Themis Computer. “We understand 64-bit multi-processing, and we wanted an SMP PPC-64 platform, similar to our AMD64 and Sun® UltraSPARC® VMEbus offerings. Themis Computer now offers a complete family of rugged single-board computers with IBM PowerPC, AMD64, and Sun UltraSPARC processors,” Mr. Kehret added.

Case & Point is asking for $ 9,000 to obtain the necessary software and certain peripherals that are specific to digital forensics in a social justice cause.

Currently, there exists an inegalitarian paradigm within the justice system that favors the prosecution through its ubiquitous use of forensic evidence to convict and incarcerate defendants, while the defense itself often lacks the means and knowledge necessary to investigate and challenge the evidence being presented against them. Case & Point aims to redress the issue of inequality in the realm of digital forensics in the courtroom by providing the resources indigent people and their attorneys need to make a proper defense against a prosecution that often relies on electronic evidence to make convictions.

The services Case & Point provides will assist defendants and their attorneys in investigating and examining data on computers, cell phones, GPS devices and other solid-state media, which are collectively known as small scale digital devices (SSDDs). Case & Point promises to level the playing field between the prosecution and defense in the digital era, allowing thousands of people who are subject to the Justice System each year to receive more equitable treatment.

Case & Point is being developed by a highly qualified forensic expert with a Master's Degree Information Security and Assurance, and a Bachelor's Degree in Criminology; certifications in hacking forensic investigations (C-HFI), wireless security and several others; and experience working as a Military Police officer on a Drug Suppression Team (DST). The founder is currently employed as Information Assurance Analyst for a financial services company. Prior to gaining leverage in the Information Technology field, the founder was a social worker serving homeless people for the AB2034 program in California for the Homeless Outreach MultiService Effort (HOME Center).

Donors of $ 29 and more will receive an “I gave to the cause” gift pen or coffee tumbler and a hand-written thank you note describing the project from the founder and developer himself. About Case & Point Case & Point is a veteran owned and operated entity that seeks to balance the scales of justice for indigent people and their attorneys who lack the means to mount a proper defense against digital forensic evidence presented by the prosecution in the preservation of an adversarial justice system while maintaining individual rights.

McCann Investigations Computer Forensics Investigators Bring Expert Witness Testimony to San Antonio Clients

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) December 12, 2013

McCann Investigations, a digital security and private investigations firm based in Texas, recently announced that it now offers the expertise of its professional digital security analysts for expert testimony in San Antonio court cases.

McCann provides a wide variety of digital forensics services, including traditional surveillance and computer security. All of the specialists at the agency must undergo rigorous training and have gained extensive field experience, which makes them perfect witnesses in court cases that require experts to clearly explain the significance of digital evidence found in investigations.

"We are always happy to be of use to the Texas court system," said Daniel Weiss, Managing Partner at McCann Investigations. "All of our investigators are capable of giving clear, knowledgeable testimony that makes it easier for judges and juries to understand exactly why evidence being presented to them is significant."

Computer forensics examinations typically involve analysts poring over files found on computers, laptops, flash drives, external hard drives, mobile devices and servers. These analysts extract any evidence that they find, and then use that evidence to track down the perpetrator of that crime and determine how they managed to accomplish their crime.

Because jury members and judges typically do not have expertise in digital security, the testimony services provided by McCann's San Antonio digital security specialists are extremely important to the process of any case. The evidence that they provide could sway the verdicts given by the court.

"We have great confidence in the ability of our digital security analysts to clearly articulate the significance of any evidence that they find," said Weiss. "The years of experience and the amount of training that these men and women have undergone is a major asset to court proceedings."
