Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital
Investigations™, announced today the release of EnCase® Portable Version 4,
the simplest to use and most powerful field investigation tool available for
digital investigation teams. EnCase Portable Version 4 enables complete
forensic triage and data collection in the field for both seasoned forensic
professionals and non-technical personnel.

“With increasing demands on digital investigation teams, we’ve seen a growing
need for powerful, easy-to-use field solutions,” said Victor Limongelli,
Guidance Software President and CEO. “Features like the ability to preview
data while it’s being collected in the field can be of tremendous benefit to
investigators, and now we’re providing EnCase Portable at a price that lets
them do much more with fewer budget dollars.”

EnCase Portable runs on a 5 GB USB drive, which enables even untrained users
to easily and rapidly boot a target computer to the USB drive (or direct data
to another, larger USB drive), and run a pre-configured data search and
collection job using the industry accepted EnCase Evidence File. Further
processing and analyzing of the data can be done using EnCase Forensic.

EnCase Forensic has long been the industry-standard computer investigation
solution for digital forensics practitioners who need to conduct efficient,
forensically sound data collection and investigations using a repeatable and
defensible process. With several features developed in response to customer
requests, EnCase Portable v4 represents the most advanced and easy-to-use
field solution for digital investigators.

robust functionality within a simpler interface. Investigators can now triage
or preview data as it is being collected as well as perform SQL-based

The product also provides two options for analyzing data acquired from running
jobs. The first is the analysis option, which enables analysis from within a
set of interlinking data browsers as well as drill-down into collected
information. The advanced analysis option delivers EnCase Analytics functions.
This release also makes it possible for field investigators to search
metadata, dynamically add images to reports, and perform easier navigation and
selection of hash sets.
