EnCase Portable Suitable for Use by Non-Technical Personnel

Guidance Software : 01 March, 2010  (New Product)
Digital forensics and evidence collection tool from Guidance Software ideal for use not only by digital discovery specialists, but also by law enforcement personnel and legal firms
Guidance Software has announced new capabilities that transform EnCase Portable, a data collection solution on a USB drive, into a triage tool, enabling keyword searching and image viewing on target computers. With Version 2 of EnCase Portable, non-technical personnel can easily search, view, and collect data from target computers using a single USB thumb drive that contains both the software and the licensing key. EnCase Portable preserves digital evidence in the court-vetted evidence file format for which EnCase is known.


Organizations that can benefit from Version 2 of EnCase Portable include:

* Law enforcement agencies: Non-technical field officers can now triage suspect computers to determine quickly whether further analysis is warranted.

* Corporations: Legal and IT teams that perform in-house electronic discovery search and collection can run the exact same search criteria for non-networked laptops and desktops that they use over the network.

* Electronic discovery service providers and law firms: These organizations can improve consistency and defensibility of collections by ensuring clients that the same search methodology and criteria is applied to all custodians—eliminating the well-documented risks associated with the disparate search methods, motives, or thoroughness of certain custodians.

"Version 2 of EnCase Portable enables organizations of any size to increase their ability to search, review, and collect information in a consistent, defensible manner," said Victor Limongelli, President and CEO for Guidance Software. "With non-experts in the field applying consistent search criteria and collecting data into EnCase evidence files, trained forensic experts can focus on search criteria creation, case management, detailed analysis, and reporting."

EnCase Portable complements other versions of EnCase software - search criteria for EnCase Portable can be quickly created in EnCase Forensic or EnCase Enterprise, and data collected with EnCase Portable can be loaded into EnCase Forensic or EnCase Enterprise for detailed forensic analysis, or seamlessly integrated into the workflow of EnCase eDiscovery for litigation matters or EnCase Cybersecurity for security incidents or data audits. EnCase Portable was recently reviewed by Law Technology News and awarded best forensics product by Law Enforcement Technology magazine.

Version 2 of EnCase Portable is expected to be generally available in late March 2010.
