OpenText EnCase eDiscovery overview

Digital forensic tools are designed to address the rise in dispersed and remote workforces, the proliferation of mobile devices and new sources of data. Comprehensively collecting data across all data sources, including endpoints, such as desktops and laptops, is critical to litigation, investigations, compliance and other legal and business needs. Collection analytics and culling capabilities help make document collection more efficient and drive down the cost of legal review.

With OpenText™ EnCase™ eDiscovery, organizations can streamline the collection, culling and preservation of data across diverse sources in a single efficient process.

What is forensic software?

Forensic software collects data across the plethora of content sources, including desktops and laptops. In addition to targeting endpoint data as a critical component of comprehensive collections, forensic software ensures the integrity of data by avoiding any alteration to metadata and applying preservation policies. Forensic software also supports legally sanctioned export formats for downstream review.
