OpenText™ EnCase™ Forensic is used by DataExpert customers to triage, collect, analyze, and report on digital evidence encountered in an investigation, while OpenText Tableau Forensic is used to capture images of media contained in suspect devices, which is then ingested into the forensics software. Together, the two products deliver a powerful solution for forensics investigators.
According to Andre Hakkers, Director of the Digital Forensics team at DataExpert, “OpenText EnCase Forensic is a given when a law enforcement customer needs a tool that effectively triages, collects, analyzes, and reports on the digital evidence involved in a crime. In fact, OpenText EnCase Forensic is such a wellaccepted solution for digital forensic investigations that it is part of the standard curriculum for training at Dutch National Police.”
Hakkers noted that OpenText EnCase Forensic and Tableau Forensic were two of the first products DataExpert offered: “We have been a long-standing partner with the OpenText EnCase and Tableau Forensic products. Based on the reliability of the company, the support we receive from the OpenText sales and technical teams, and the features the products deliver to our customers, EnCase and Tableau Forensic remain an integral part of our digital forensics solutions.”
Some of the key features that DataExpert customers rely on include the ability to find information that has been deleted, to perform effective searches with customized filters, and to decrypt and overcome password blocks. The solution offers extensibility through EnScripts, which are automated code commands that streamline and automate tasks and extend the capabilities of EnCase Forensic to help examiners complete investigations more efficiently.
“Our customers depend on the deep-dive investigation capabilities provided by OpenText EnCase Forensic,” said Hakkers. “EnCase Forensic does a really good job of data recovery. Between that and the ability to write scripts and filters with the EnScripts feature, our law enforcement and government agency customers consistently depend on EnCase Forensic to help them investigate cases more efficiently, close cases faster, and reduce their case backlogs.”
