April 26, 2017 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Guidance Software, the makers of EnCase®, and kCura announced today that they will jointly offer a complete end-to-end e-Discovery solution including RelativityOne – the cloud-based version of the leading e-Discovery platform Relativity – and Guidance EnCase eDiscovery – the industry standard for collection and preservation capabilities. The integrated solutions work together seamlessly, addressing customer needs at every stage of the e-Discovery process.

“Our customers need solutions for a wide variety of e-Discovery challenges. These agreements with kCura reinforce our shared strategy to provide the best technology across the entire e-Discovery process,” said Guidance Software CEO Patrick Dennis. “kCura is great at e-Discovery processing, review and analysis, and Guidance is great at e-Discovery search, collections and preservation. By bringing our solutions together, we can make our customers more efficient as they face ever-increasing caseloads.”

Announced in October, the integration of EnCase and Relativity enabled legal and IT teams to move their data from EnCase into Relativity more quickly and intelligently.

The joint offering of EnCase eDiscovery and RelativityOne builds on the robust technical integration. Customers of EnCase eDiscovery Review will have a migration path to transition to RelativityOne moving forward, and kCura will offer EnCase eDiscovery to Relativity and RelativityOne customers as an option for collection.

“Integrating with EnCase aligns with kCura’s vision of bringing the entire e-Discovery process and community together in one open, flexible, and connected platform,” said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. “We’re excited to expand the partnership with a joint offering of our two solutions, and we look forward to supporting Guidance in providing a great RelativityOne experience for EnCase customers.”

Both companies will share more information on the integration and partnership at Guidance’s EnFuse 2017 conference in Las Vegas (May 22 to 25) and at kCura’s Relativity Fest 2017 in Chicago (October 22 to 25).
