Hagen, Streiff, Newton & Oshiro, an internationally recognized leader in forensic technology, electronic data discovery, data recovery, corporate compliance and forensic accounting services, today announced that it has added to their long list of technologies Guidance Software’s award-winning EnCase Portable and Field Intelligence Model (FIM) in addition to their current licenses of EnCase Forensic. HSNO’s growing investment in EnCase gives them a diverse and powerful platform of forensic technologies to fully service corporate legal departments, law firms and government agencies involved with any type of investigations, legal dispute or data recovery need. Forensically sound data collections can be performed on site or remotely without interrupting everyday information management and workflow.

EnCase, in addition to HSNO’s current forensic technology toolset, affords HSNO the ability to handle any size investigation and provide professional services and consultation to clients that currently run EnCase Enterprise, EnCase Forensic, or clients that do not have any forensic capabilities at all. HSNO performs global collections from their primary lab in Newport Beach, CA, in addition to Houston, TX, Atlanta, GA, New York, NY, and Seattle, WA. Business interruptions are kept to a minimum, and in most cases, it eliminates the need and costs of having a forensic investigator travel on site.

Global 1000 corporations create a plethora of data on a daily basis. As data volume grows, the complexity of data management and risk grows exponentially. For investigations, discovery and compliance, many corporations are looking at the left-hand side of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) (EDRM.net) to help reduce the cost and risk presented by each of these challenges.

HSNO is one of the pioneers in the electronic discovery sector and continues to leverage many of the complex tools they’ve developed over the last 10 years of servicing clients. HSNO uses an arsenal of other industry-leading technologies to conduct remote investigations supporting electronic discovery, incident response, fraud and investigative services, corporate compliance, anti-corruption and anti-money laundering. It also has a team of experts that have handled the most noted Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigations and worked closely with global corporations, the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), amongst several international regulatory authorities in Europe, UK, Asia, Russia, South Africa and South America.

HSNO’s forensic experts are located throughout the country and their primary lab is based in their corporate headquarters in Newport Beach, CA. HSNO’s global clients will now be able to leverage defensible and enterprise-class forensics, discovery services and expertise on-demand without the cost of ownership of pricey in-house discovery tools.

“As markets are becoming more global, data collection and investigation requests are growing and it is up to us to provide next-generation software, services and solutions to remain ahead of the pack,” said Matthew Blake, partner and leader of HSNO’s forensic technology practice. “With the addition of EnCase Portable and EnCase Field Intelligence Model to our robust toolset of forensic applications, we have the ability to capture stored data, live data and dynamic data no matter where it is located worldwide. We are one of the few and elite professional services firms in business more than 37 years that offer defensible and forensically sound data collection, anytime, anywhere.”

EnCase® FIM can securely review computers over the network and is compatible with all the major operating systems. In an environment where discretion may be important, it can be used to covertly triage a drive to determine if sufficient data exist to proceed with an investigation. This ability to investigate without disrupting business operations or alerting the subject will greatly reduce the liability of the investigator. Like EnCase Forensic it can also create logical evidence files (LEFs).

EnCase Portable is a data collection solution that leverages the powerful search and collection capabilities of EnCase®, delivered on a USB drive. The solution searches a targeted computer and automatically collects data, including documents, Internet history and artifacts, images, other digital evidence, and even entire hard drives.

Unlike other solutions that reside on laptops, EnCase Portable is a pocket-sized tool that saves time and money. Users can collect forensically sound data in any location with ease. Once the data is collected with EnCase® Portable, the expert can import the data seamlessly into their cases in EnCase® Forensic or EnCase® Enterprise for analysis.
