At OpenText, security is always job number one — and the OpenText™ Security Suite, powered by OpenText™ EnCase™, is an integral part of our security strategy. Since OpenText acquired Guidance Software in 2017 (and the EnCase line of forensic security and investigation products), we’ve remained committed to helping our customers address enterprise risk, information security and digital investigation needs with industry-leading forensic-grade solutions.
From the latest product innovations delivered in OpenText Release 16 Enhancement Pack 7 (EP7) to the launch of new products like OpenText™ Content Security for EnCase™ by Reveille and more, 2019 was a great year for the OpenText Security Suite.
Here are some additional highlights from 2019:

The OpenText Hero Award for Excellence in EnScript Development
For many years now, digital forensic investigators have leveraged the power of EnScript programs, customized extensions for OpenText™ EnCase™ products that automate common tasks. These small programs, created by the EnCase developer community, streamline tasks and are shared on EnCase AppCentral. EnScript saves investigators time and helps to instantly retrieve artifacts of note, decode new datatypes and facilitate the implementation of efficient workflows that automate repetitive tasks to name just a few examples.
