PASADENA, Calif. -- February 13, 2013

Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital
Investigations™, announced today that its EnCase® Cybersecurity product has
demonstrated interoperability with HP ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager
(ESM) and has received HP ArcSight Action Connector Certification.

The interoperability of EnCase Cybersecurity with HP ArcSight is the
first-of-its-kind to automate incident response between event prioritization
and time-sensitive response actions. This interoperability can reduce cyber
attack response and remediation time to a matter of minutes or hours, from
days or weeks.

“Cyber incidents are costing enterprises millions of dollars, countless staff
hours and incalculable reputational damage,” said Alex Andrianopoulos,
Guidance Software Vice President of Marketing. “The spike in cyber incident
volumes has intensified the need for rapid and comprehensive capture, review
and analysis of endpoint data at the moment of a security alert. We were
pleased to work with HP on delivering technology that gives IT security teams
what they need for the fastest possible response to incidents at every threat

The interoperability of EnCase Cybersecurity with HP ArcSight ESM enables the
automation of four areas of incident response.

First is immediate forensic auto-capture of live system memory in order to
validate detected threats and capture host-based threat data that would
otherwise be lost.

Second is capturing Internet history, artifacts and cache files in response to
events leveraging browser-based vulnerabilities, data exfiltration through
file-sharing services, or in response to inappropriate browsing alerts.

Third is that IT security teams can now instantly prioritize response, giving
them the ability to better manage the thousands of alerts that occur daily and
maximize their impact. Incident response automation provides information on an
attack in minutes, allowing security teams to scan for attacks on sensitive or
controlled information and make those the top priority.

Finally, security teams can conduct forensic audits against white- or
blacklists in order to expose unknown processes and files, or to scan for
exact and similar matches to previously detected threats.

“Organizations are spending an increasing amount of time with limited
resources responding to, and recovering from, cyber attacks,” said Buck Watia,
Director, Business Development, Enterprise Security Products, HP. “The
interoperability of HP ArcSight ESM with EnCase Cybersecurity provides
customers with critical visibility into the state of potentially affected
hosts at the time an attack is detected, along with the means to dramatically
reduce the time it takes to resolve.”

IT security managers can run these EnCase Cybersecurity functions from within
HP ArcSight ESM with a few mouse clicks, or can set them to run as automatic
processes when an incident triggers a security alert. This closes a critical
gap that exists between network security, incident response and investigation
teams while reducing overall time and costs related to incident management and


EnCase Cybersecurity is available now and the Action Connector delivering the
integrated capabilities above can be obtained via the HP ArcSight Customer
Portal under Guidance Software. Additional automated-response options can be
configured by Guidance Software Professional Services. More information on the
combined solution is available at
