To reduce the time it takes to identify and respond to threats, they replace outdated incident response methods that usually involve home-grown tools coupled with manual investigation by security analysts, with automated detection and incident response products such as Guidance Software’s EnCase® Cybersecurity and EnCase® Analytics products.
EnCase Cybersecurity and EnCase Analytics help organizations reduce the gap between detecting an incident and mobilizing a rapid response. Through integration with leading Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) vendors, including HP ArcSight, EnCase Cybersecurity automates critical time-sensitive aspects of the incident response process, reducing response and remediation time to a matter of minutes or hours, from days or weeks. EnCase Analytics empowers customers to find and expose cyber threats hiding behind complex relationships in the massive amounts of data that exist within the sum of all endpoints of an enterprise.
