UK-based forensics company CY4OR has reached an agreement with Guidance Software under which CY4OR will offer and support Guidance Software’s EnCase Enterprise Platform. This is a logical development for CY4OR, building on their nine-year history of forensic investigations and collections work which has already brought them into corporate electronic disclosure with a website dedicated to that part of their work.
A glance at the information page for EnCase Enterprise will quickly show why CY4OR has gone down this route. The passage about ….
a proven, cost effective method to investigate HR related matters (such as corporate policy violations, harassment complaints or computer misuse allegations), IP theft, fraud, computer security incidents and more
… ties in with and extends CY4OR’s established skills in this area of forensic investigation. The ability to collect data from servers and workstations on the corporate network without disruption to the business is important for both cost and time reasons – investigations of this kind almost invariably require urgent, if not instant, attention, but business must go on whilst it is happening.
Related as I am to both companies through their respective sponsorships of the eDisclosure Information Project, I look forward to hearing how the partnership goes and will report back when it has had a chance to bed down.
