Guidance Software describes EnCase as a "network-enabled forensics, incident response, and security analysis tool." Not only capable of ensuring your systems are properly patched, EnCase is fed by your intrusion detection system to closely track attacks and record them with snapshots for later review. Further, EnCase is an excellent tool for automating compliance testing for stringent regulations such as HIPAA. Companies can quickly search through servers and workstations from a single console for sensitive documents and images, then determine how files have been distributed through the enterprise and by whom.
