Guidance Software, a provider of digital investigations, has announced that Verizon has selected to use EnCase eDiscovery on a pay-per-use basis.
According to Guidance Software, its pay-per-use program allows customers to pay for EnCase eDiscovery through operating budgets on a per case, per custodian basis and at a fraction of what it would cost to outsource the process. It offers organizations the option of paying for only what they use, with charges tied to the amount of data searched, collected, processed, and output into load files.
Guidance Software claims that the EnCase eDiscovery is an eDiscovery solution for the search, collection, preservation and processing of electronically stored information. It performs automated search, collection, and preservation of ESI residing in unstructured and semi-structured data stores such as: desktops, laptops, file servers, e-mail servers, content management systems, and removable storage media, all without any business disruption.
Additionally, extensive processing capabilities enable post-collection culling and deduplication of data, as well as load file creation for the most popular attorney review platforms, allowing customers to drastically cut processing costs, added Guidance Software.
Victor Limongelli, president and CEO of Guidance Software, said: Given Verizon’s leadership in the area of eDiscovery, we are extremely pleased that they have chosen our software for their electronic discovery needs. We are confident that EnCase eDiscovery will help them minimize risk, save time and reduce costs.
