EnCase eDiscovery 4.2 Makes Electronic Discovery Easier for Enterprises

Guidance Software EnCase® eDiscovery delivers all of the speed, scalability and ease of use that organizations expect from an e-discovery solution
EnCase® eDiscovery version 4.2 software includes more than a dozen enhancements that give corporate e-discovery teams more control and automation over their enterprise deployments combined with a new user interface to make e-discovery collection and processing even easier.

The software made its debut at the Computer Enterprise Investigation Conference (CEIC) in Orlando, Florida last month.

New “check-the-box” wizard provides improved ease of use

In version 4.2, the company has a new “check-the-box” collection and processing “wizard” to help quickly specify what electronically stored information (ESI) should be collected and/or processed. These capabilities help e-discovery teams to set up repeatable processes that are the linchpin to defensible e-discovery efforts.

Improved automation and workflow
New automation features include load balancing, and the ability to build workflows, which enables better prioritization and fast processing across global enterprise infrastructures. The new features are added to a platform that is well known in the industry as the gold-standard for collection and processing strength, and an architecture that offers unlimited scalability and usage, which means enterprises can take on large cases without having to upgrade the product or purchase additional licenses.

Support for Microsoft Office 365
Adding to its long time Microsoft Office Exchange and SharePoint collection capabilities, EnCase® eDiscovery now supports Microsoft Office 365. Support enables the collection of electronically stored information (ESI) from Microsoft Office Exchange and SharePoint in the cloud. This new feature is important for those organizations that are transitioning to the cloud.

Guidance Software was also recently named a Leader in the first Gartner Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery which assesses 24 vendors on their ability to execute and completeness of vision in the e-discovery market. To download the full report click here: Gartner Magic Quadrant for E-Discovery.

“Enterprise e-discovery solutions increasingly must handle multiple digital investigation scenarios – not just legal cases – as well as supporting organizational goals without disrupting business, delivering collection and preservation strength that stands up in court, and providing scalable data capacity,” said Katey Wood, analyst for Enterprise Strategy Group.

EnCase® eDiscovery is a comprehensive enterprise e-discovery solution that includes legal hold, pre-collection analytics, collection, preservation, processing, analysis and first pass review. It is based on the company’s judicially accepted forensic technology.

Take control of e-discovery with a single, unified solution
EnCase® eDiscovery enables customers to take control of their e-discovery in a single unified solution that manages everything from legal hold through first-pass review, preserves metadata, only collects relevant files, and is scalable across large global networks with unique pre-collection analytics as well as analysis and first-pass review at any point in the process – all backed by expert services from Guidance Software that provide industry standard best practices, training, and certifications (EnCE® and EnCEP®).
