Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, announced that the U.S. Department of the Treasury publicly recognized EnCase® as the only suite of technology products that can meet its needs for internal investigations, malware detection and remediation and forensically sound, court-validated discovery.
In a public notice regarding its plans to extend implementation of EnCase® Forensic, EnCase® Enterprise and EnCase® Cybersecurity across the enterprise, the Department of the Treasury said, “EnCase is a critical technology supporting internal and external investigations, finding and eliminating malware and protecting sensitive taxpayer data. There is no other financially viable company that can provide the required technology. There is no other enterprise solution that provides forensically sound investigative solutions that supports the required operating systems and has the required certifications.”
“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.”
The Department of the Treasury reported in the solicitation document that it had completed an “engineering alternative analysis” that recommended the EnCase Enterprise product over four other competitors. “The licenses will be used to support enterprise-wide digital forensic investigations, malware identification and remediation, and e-discovery activities… There is no other comparable solution that can be acquired in support of this requirement.”In standardizing on EnCase Cybersecurity for sensitive data discovery, incident response and remediation, the Department of the Treasury said, “The Cybersecurity solution brings tremendous value to the Department of the Treasury in terms of compliance with the Privacy Act and protecting sensitive taxpayer data.” The agency also noted that, “The solution will allow the Department of the Treasury and other component bureaus to dramatically reduce the time to respond to malware attacks, breaches, improve incident response across the enterprise, and take a considerably more proactive approach to cyber security.”
