Guidance Software Inc. (Nasdaq:GUID), Pasadena, Calif., The World Leader in Digital Investigations, has unveiled latest version of its eDiscovery solution, EnCase(r) eDiscovery Suite. eDiscovery Suite v2 leverages the power of Guidance Software's flagship product, EnCase Enterprise, so organizations can efficiently address eDiscovery in-house. With EnCase eDiscovery Suite, users can search, identify, cull, collect and process electronically stored information (ESI) across the enterprise, thereby addressing several core requirements of the eDiscovery process.

"EnCase eDiscovery Suite's revolutionary and game-changing new features enable corporations, government agencies and law firms to put a systematized and defensible process in place to handle electronic discovery, which is now more crucial than ever with the amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and recent court decisions," said Guidance Software CEO John Colbert. "Using eDiscovery Suite, organizations can bring the process in-house, saving time, money and resources, while relying on EnCase software and its years of court validation for strong defensibility to minimize legal risk."

EnCase eDiscovery Suite v2 is designed for organizations seeking to dramatically improve the practice of eDiscovery with an in-house alternative both to the traditional method of outsourcing, which relies on expensive manual processes, and to the risky, difficult-to-defend approach of custodian self-collection. A recent survey from Fulbright & Jaworski recognized eDiscovery as the number one litigation-related burden of companies with revenues of $100 million or greater. Organizations that bring eDiscovery in-house with EnCase eDiscovery Suite can reduce risk and achieve substantial return on investment (ROI) with cost savings of up to 90 percent.

EnCase eDiscovery Suite's uniquely integrated and scalable solution eliminates the substantial waste of time and money resulting from traditional, outsourced eDiscovery methods. Organizations use EnCase eDiscovery Suite to search, cull at the point of collection, collect and preserve only relevant data, and process the data for attorney review. As recently stated by Morgan Stanley's Software Analyst team in its published research: "Guidance Software technology is a game changer.. Spending in its sector (eDiscovery) is currently skewed toward labor intensive and inefficient solutions for which Guidance Software offers significant ROI enhancement."

EnCase eDiscovery Suite v2 provides an effective and global in-house eDiscovery solution with its strong chain of custody, the ability to quickly search, cull and collect ESI and email across the enterprise from a centralized location, and the ability to search and collect from remote devices, including laptops and removable media. eDiscovery Suite also processes the data and creates load files for the leading attorney review platforms. New and enhanced features incorporated into EnCase eDiscovery Suite v2 include the following:

* Comprehensive Chain-of-Custody and Preservation Reports: eDiscovery Suite's enhanced reporting feature includes logging to track detailed information across the entire eDiscovery process for the greatest defensibility available.

* Pushbutton Load File Creation: eDiscovery Suite's improved review platform integration enables users to create load files for the leading attorney review platforms with a few clicks of the mouse.

* Enhanced Search, Collection and Preservation Capabilities: eDiscovery Suite's improved search capabilities for mapped drives, network shares and SharePoint servers - as well as integration with Stellent's Outside-In technology - permits search and collection across a greater number of data sources and data types. Additionally, improved efficiency with multi-threading, Boolean searching and smart collection technology speed performance and work flow.

* Enhanced Email Collection: eDiscovery Suite includes the ability to search live Exchange and Domino servers and local PSTs and NSFs, enabling a single solution for the collection and processing of email and other ESI.

EnCase eDiscovery Suite v2 is now available. For more detailed product information and to download the EnCase Legal Journal please visit or call 626/229-9191.
