WICHITA, KS – November 7, 2006 — WiebeTech=20
announces a new computer forensic product line=20
that write-blocks an attached device internally=20
at the host computer port instead of externally=20
with a docking device.

WiebeTech’s new line of forensic host cards, adds=20
write-blocked ports to a Windows or Linux=20
computer assuring that attached devices have=20
read-only capability. RedPort works much like a=20
forensic docking product by preventing writes to=20
drives; but instead of being an external docking=20
device, RedPort works within the host.

The ports are literally red in color. Connecting=20
to RedPort on the back of a computer means the=20
attached enclosure is write-blocked.

“A primary design task,” said James Wiebe,=20
president and CEO of WiebeTech, “was to ensure=20
that an investigator would not be able to turn a=20
RedPort card into a read/write card by=20
accidentally installing the wrong software=20
drivers. Thus, either RedPort works=20
write-blocked, or it doesn’t work at all.”

WiebeTech’s first RedPort host cards are=20
developed in partnership with ATTO Technology, a=20
global leader in storage interface connectivity.=20
“We’ve leveraged their years of experience with=20
SCSI and Fibre Channel technology with our=20
knowledge of our customers work environment and=20
requirements,” said Wiebe.
