Guidance Software solutions
EnCase Analytics exposes hard-to-find risks and threats –
- Security insights via complete endpoint visibility
Instead of trusting a compromised operating system, EnCase Analytics uses data from across all of an organisation’s endpoints from the kernel level. This results in a repository of the most reliable and useful data for insights into undetected risks and threats.
- Proactive bird’s-eye view into security risks and threats
EnCase Analytics provides the ability to quickly visualise enterprise-wide endpoint data from multiple dimensions, regardless of how large or disparate the data sets may be.
- Quickly derive insights from visual representations of data
EnCase Analytics exposes suspicious patterns, commonalities, and anomalies through an interactive visual interface, allowing for on-the-fly adjustments to zero-in on threats.
EnCase® Cybersecurity delivers visibility into endpoint activity across the network, when an organisation has been hacked, when advanced threats are suspected but not identified, or when it’s necessary to expose and remove sensitive data from unauthorised locations. It enables real-time response to alerts generated by detection solutions.
- Exposes unknown or modified processes and errant PII or IP on endpoints,
- Analyses endpoints to determine source and scope of an incident,
- Assists in attack attribution
- Minimises time to remediation
- Forensic-level enterprise investigation
- The power to search, collect, preserve and analyse vast amounts of data
- Addresses issues such as intellectual property theft, employee fraud and employee policy violations
- Respond more easily to compliance requests
The enormous costs, regulatory risks and business disruption associated with the traditional methods of forensic-level enterprise investigations, incident response and e-discovery can handicap companies of any size.
EnCase Enterprise provides organisations and government bodies with the ability to reduce exposure to risk by quickly and accurately addressing corporate policy violations such as intellectual property theft, employee fraud and employee policy violations.
It gives users the power to search, collect, preserve and analyse the vast amounts of data associated with doing business today. It can generate detailed reports on those findings, from a central location with minimal disruption to operations, no matter how large and complex the network environment. Organisations can also respond more easily to compliance requests.
