Image Analyser, a developer of technology for detecting sexually explicit image content, has recently collaborated with Guidance Software to make its Image Analyzer software available as an application on EnCase App Central. Image Analyzer technology can process thousands of images in seconds and highlight high risk files, folders, and systems. This allows investigators to dramatically increase the number of files they can process and shorten the time to extracting critical evidence.
Guidance Software is the leading provider of forensic investigations software and hardware solutions. Guidance Software’s EnCase® Forensic, is used extensively by government, corporate and law enforcement authorities worldwide for forensic investigations. Guidance Software recently launched EnCase App Central, a new online community and marketplace for digital investigators that provides access to apps, best practices, and community support. EnCase App Central includes both free and paid apps built using the EnScript programming language. Each app is vetted and tested by a technical team at Guidance Software before it is made available at EnCase App Central.
The Image Analyzer app will allow examiners to analyze large volumes of images, to quickly and accurately identify pornographic content. This enables review of image data based on a risk profile and significantly reduces the time to discovering critical evidence and building a meaningful case. EnCase App Central offers both a free trial version and paid Image Analyzer EnScript modules.
“Examiners or digital forensic investigators are increasingly looking for enhanced functionality from a single reliable source and the App Central initiative from Guidance Software is the perfect vehicle to deliver this requirement. The professional support Guidance Software provided throughout the integration has made the whole delivery process very simple and we would recommend other independent software vendors look to offer their technologies via EnCase® App Central,” said Cris Pikes, chief executive officer for Image Analyser.
“Image Analyser’s innovative technology is a great addition to our EnCase digital investigations community and a good example of the types of solutions EnCase App Central was built to deliver,” said Alex Andrianopoulos, vice president, marketing for Guidance Software. “It helps our users quickly leverage the EnCase® platform to deliver time-saving solutions, while demonstrating the extensibility of EnCase via our EnScript programming language.”
Also available in the new App Central marketplace will be reporting templates, evidence processor templates and tools that help integrate EnCase® with third-party applications.
