PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Guidance Software, the makers of EnCase®, the gold standard in forensic security, today announced EnCase® Endpoint Security Version 6, a significant redesign of the company’s flagship endpoint detection and response (EDR) product.

“Version 6 is a major update for EnCase Endpoint Security. For this release, we improved the entire user experience for our customers,” said Michael Harris, chief marketing officer at Guidance. “The result is a product with more powerful detection and scoring of threats, that is also easier to use for both tier-one security analysts and advanced incident responders. EnCase Endpoint Security will reduce the time, complexity, and costs related to threat detection and incident response.”

Version 6 combines a completely redesigned interface and user experience (UI/UX), with enhanced threat detection capabilities, and new incident response workflows. The new release also creates more operational efficiencies to improve integrations and ROI on security investments.

EnCase Endpoint Security Version 6 offers customers a host of improvements, including:

Enhanced Endpoint Detection and Response Capabilities

  • Integrated threat intelligence adds a deeper layer of context to security alerts, including numeric threat scores that help IR teams prioritize and respond to critical threats.
  • Version 6 also simplifies additional incident response control actions – including memory scans, IOC searches, and incident investigations – enabling tier-one and tier-two security analysts the ability to quickly get to the heart of any incident.

Improved User Experience

  • EnCase Endpoint Security Version 6 now features a completely redesigned UX/UI designed in standard HTML5 and JavaScript for efficiency, automation, and ease-of-use to reduce manual tasks and improve overall usage.
  • Streamlined security workflows meet the needs of both tier-one security analysts and advanced incident responders.
  • Version 6 is designed to promote greater operational efficiencies by offering meaningful dashboards, process tree visualizations, customizations, shortcuts, and more.

Increased Operational Efficiencies

  • The new EnCase Endpoint Security includes enhanced open APIs that expands the capacity to automate more processes involving third party security tools.
  • Integration with various SIEM tools, like Splunk, allow customers to access EnCase Endpoint Security with a single-pane-of-glass user experience.
