What’s new in OpenText EnCase Forensic and Endpoint Investigator Cloud Edition (CE) 20.2

Collect from Macs enabled with Apple T2 Security Chip

When Apple introduced the T2 Security Chip in 2018, it set the computer forensics community back for years. Since then, Mac investigations have lagged behind, requiring physical possession of the device and even custom implementations of the OS itself, all at the cost of time, agency resources and, worse still, volatile forensic data.

OpenText™ EnCase™ technology was the first to bring Mac investigations over the network; the first to decrypt FileVault 2 on a PC; the first to preview and decrypt APFS over the network; and now the first to support Apple T2 security over the network.

You don’t need physical possession of the machine. You don’t need a separate partition. And you don’t need credentials if the user is logged in.

The EnCase Agent captures key information and submits it to the T2 Chip, which decrypts the APFS container for access, and you see something like this:

Once you mount the disk in EnCase, we do all the hard work so that you don’t have to. We’ve also improved network preview times so that you can get to the data faster.

What about Apple Time Machine snapshot data? We’ve got that, too.
