Many organizations have conceded that their traditional anti-malware defenses have failed and that a new strategy must be created to identify these breaches at the endpoint. A significant number of recent data breaches from advanced forms of malware have increased client interest in EDR tools.

The EDR market is an emerging security technology market created to satisfy the need for continuous detection and response to advanced threats—most notably to significantly improve security monitoring, threat detection and incident response capabilities.

“Building on a long and rich history in endpoint investigations solutions, Guidance Software delivers market-leading endpoint security that meets the demands of the current risk landscape to quickly uncover and remediate difficult to find that threats, wherever they reside,” said Barry Plaga, acting CEO for Guidance Software. “We believe this recognition is a testament to our hard work in delivering a solution that is well positioned to serve enterprises and government agencies looking to mitigate malware targeted at the endpoint.”

EnCase security solutions deliver endpoint threat detection and breach response capabilities that detect, validate and prioritize unknown and undetected threats, assess the scope and impact of a compromise, and return devices to a trusted state.
