Utimaco, Guidance Team

FOXBORO, Mass. -- Utimaco The Data Security Company, and Guidance Software Inc, (Nasdaq:GUID), The World Leader in Digital Investigations™, today announced a strategic relationship that allows organizations to secure their data without compromising their ability to perform in-depth digital investigations.

Guidance Software’s EnCase® digital investigative platform and Utimaco SafeGuard® solutions work together seamlessly, providing EnCase users with access to Utimaco-encrypted devices. This ensures that law enforcement agencies, corporations and government organizations can conduct effective investigations while maintaining the security and forensic integrity of their digital data.

“Organizations must continue to protect their sensitive data from unauthorized access,” stated Craig Bumpus, Utimaco General Manager, Americas. “However, since computer forensics has become a staple in criminal and regulatory compliance investigations, organizations require solutions that meet best practices for protecting data while enabling digital investigations of any kind. Partnering with Guidance, Utimaco now delivers the leading solution to provide device and data access to aid in investigations.”

“The ability to perform digital investigations is critical to corporations and government agencies. At the same time, there is a greater need to protect and secure their digital data with encryption technologies,” stated John Colbert, CEO of Guidance Software. “Guidance Software and Utimaco have joined forces to ensure that the encryption of an organization’s sensitive data does not inhibit digital investigations related to such areas as employee fraud, incident response and eDiscovery.”
