Guidance Boosts E-Discovery Search

PASADENA, Calif. -- Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ: GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations(TM), today announced groundbreaking in-house eDiscovery processing capabilities, new connectors for leading archiving and content management solutions and a new work-flow driven interface in version 3.1 of its industry-leading EnCase(R) eDiscovery solution. These added competencies further expand the search, collection, preservation and processing capabilities of EnCase eDiscovery, enabling litigants to reduce risk and realize tremendous cost savings by eliminating outsourcing and bringing the eDiscovery process in-house.

Guidance Software's EnCase eDiscovery now offers the ability to quickly and easily create EDRM-compliant XML load files, along with load files for Concordance and Summation attorney review platforms. With this push-button load file creation capability, collected data can be quickly processed and delivered into the hands of attorneys for review.

EnCase eDiscovery's collection capabilities are likewise improved by connectors that extract semi-structured data from archiving and content management solutions. The initial release will support EMC's Documentum, and in subsequent dot releases support is planned for Open Text LiveLink, Microsoft Sharepoint, and Symantec Enterprise Vault. Additionally, version 3.1 has enhanced connectors to Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino live messaging servers.

EnCase eDiscovery now includes the ability to search encrypted documents and emails, which can be decrypted "on the fly", permitting a search of the contents as if the files and emails were not encrypted. This capability enables the electronic discovery process to operate smoothly and efficiently, despite the presence of encrypted documents and emails.
