Guidance Software's Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference (CEIC) has garnered a Forensic 4cast Award for Outstanding Contribution to Digital Forensics at the SANS Summit in Austin, Texas last week. Additionally, Guidance Software’s market-leading digital investigation tools took the top spots for Best Forensic Software for EnCase Forensic and Best Forensic Hardware for the Tableau TD1.
Now in its third year, the Forensic 4cast Awards provide the digital forensic industry a platform to nominate and vote for the best people, companies, and products throughout the industry. Hosted by Lee Whitfield, Forensic 4cast founder, nominations opened in February and voting took place May 4 through June 5.
“The fact that Guidance Software won three awards is unprecedented; no single organization or individual has achieved that in previous years,” said Lee Whitfield, Forensic 4cast founder and host of the Forensic 4cast Awards. “Guidance has made some great progress in the last year. [EnCase Forensic] Version 7 looks great and has some serious potential. That may be why the community came out in their numbers to vote for Guidance.”
