PASADENA, Calif. -- December 03, 2012

Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital
Investigations™, announced today the faster than ever Tableau® T35u USB 3.0
forensic SATA/IDE bridge for forensic imaging in both lab and field

The T35u forensic bridge supports write-blocked, forensic acquisitions of both
SATA and IDE storage devices through a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 host connection. The
T35u offers forensic examiners the ease of use, reliability and imaging speed
necessary to image today's larger and faster hard disk drives. Users simply
connect, power up and image.

“Forensic practitioners worldwide rely on Tableau write blockers for their
quality, ease of use and performance,” said Jim Borecki, vice president of the
forensic business unit for Guidance Software. “The T35u is our fastest write
blocker yet. When used with appropriate imaging software, the T35u is over
twice as fast as our T35es write blocker. Our internal testing shows it to be
the fastest write blocker available today.”

For added security, T35u introduces the new 'firmware update' button, which
places the T35u in a special mode for updating its firmware through the
Tableau Firmware Update (TFU) utility. TFU has been rewritten for updates via
USB, making it easier than ever to maintain the correct version of firmware on
new Tableau products.

For smaller form factor drives such as 1.8 inch and 2.5 inch notebook, ZIP,
microSATA and blade-style SSD drives, the Tableau TKA5-AD adapter kit is
compatible for use with the T35u.

The T35u is available now. For more information on the T35u, please visit
