Reviewers praised Guidance Software for its unique forensic approach to endpoint security, documentation, support and performance.

As part of the endpoint security group review, SC Magazine tested 10 endpoint security solutions. The review stressed Guidance Software's forensic background and capabilities, noting the solution"... takes the position that once you have an exfiltration problem, the best way to meet the emergency is forensically. That's a very interesting approach and it has a lot to recommend it."

SC Magazine claimed that EnCase Endpoint Security "... can tell you things about an attack that nothing else can." It noted that the solution has two functions – threat detection and incident response automation – enabling organizations to establish a baseline and conduct periodic security audits. The reviewers also praised the solution's integration capabilities, noting that it can exchange information with QRadar, FireEye, Palo Alto, Intel Security, Sourcefire and Cisco ThreatGrid.

  • Detect unknown threats that evade perimeter technologies using endpoint data
