Cyber security for government departments in the U.S. is a huge business. As the U.S. government is turning more to the Internet for its operations, it is investing a significant amount of money in cyber securities for its departments; and that’s music to the ears of companies that provide cyber security products.
One such company, Guidance Software has recently announced that the U.S. Department of the Treasury has publicly recognized the company’s EnCase solution as the only product that caters to its requirements for malware detection, internal investigations, remediation and various other security purposes.
The EnCase product portfolio from Guidance Software is offered for various purposes. While products such as EnCase Enterprise, EnCase Forensic, and EnCase Portable are for digital forensics, EnCase eDiscovery is for E-Discovery purposes. Also, EnCase Cybersecurity is used for incident response.
Version 7 of the EnCase Enterprise provides various advanced features such as advanced automation features, enhanced case management, streamlined user interface. According to the company, EnCase Enterprise v7 is both reliable and simple to use. It also provides centralized digital investigation features to reduce expenses and enhance efficiencies.
The Department of the Treasury has also recommended the EnCase Enterprise product over four other competitors, the company has stated.
“We’re proud to continue supporting the U.S. Department of the Treasury with our EnCase technology after their thorough review of competing solutions,” said Victor Limongelli, president and CEO of Guidance Software. “Our company takes seriously its responsibility to lead the industry in powerful, judicially accepted investigative technology, and we’ll continue to partner with federal and other public-sector agencies to ensure excellence in their work and ours.”
Recently, the company released EnCase Portable Version 4, a simple and powerful field investigation tool, which is available for digital investigation teams. For both seasoned forensic professionals and non-technical personnel, EnCase Portable Version 4 allows complete forensic triage and data collection in the field. Enabling even untrained users to easily and quickly boot a target computer to the USB drive (or direct data to another, larger USB drive), EnCase Portable runs on a 5 GB USB drive.
