OpenText acquires Guidance Software

Expands Discovery Portfolio

I am pleased to announce that today, Guidance Software, the makers of EnCase, the gold standard in forensic security, joins the OpenText family. The acquisition of Guidance Software broadens the OpenText Discovery portfolio by adding industry-leading digital investigation, eDiscovery collection, and endpoint security solutions.

OpenText™ Discovery Suite brings analytics to enterprise content for fast access to key documents, contract terms, personnel with expertise, and critical early insights. The addition of EnCase extends our Discovery Suite, delivering 360-degree visibility across diverse network structures, operating systems, and more than 26,000 mobile endpoint device profiles.

With Guidance solutions, organizations can discreetly collect relevant data without impacting day-to-day business operations, gain early insight into potential litigation, accelerate investigations through automated processing and indexing, store evidence in a forensically sound and globally accepted file format, and monitor endpoints—regardless of whether they are on or off the network—for threats.

As well as strengthening our Discovery Suite, this acquisition expands our presence in key verticals, such as government and federal agencies, banking, and insurance. With clients in 78 of the Fortune 100, implementations on 35 million endpoints, and more than 5,000 certified EnCase engineers, OpenText now delivers the industry standard for digital investigations with unparalleled reliability and breadth of coverage.

This acquisition combines best-of-breed OpenText EIM solutions with forensic security technologies to bring order to information chaos; a critical ability for organizations in highly regulated and litigious industries.

Please join me in welcoming Guidance Software team, customers, and partners to the OpenText family.
