Guidance Software and Protiviti Form Strategic Alliance

PASADENA, Calif., Oct 28, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ: GUID), The World Leader in Digital Investigations(TM), today announced it has formed a strategic alliance with Protiviti Inc., a global business consulting and internal audit firm. This global alliance provides a technology and consulting service solution that uniquely empowers organizations to manage their eDiscovery processes in-house and avoid costly outsourcing. The alliance combines Guidance Software's EnCase eDiscovery, which is the market-leading technology for the identification, search, collection, preservation and processing of electronically stored information, with Protiviti's strong expertise in risk and advisory services for eDiscovery and data governance.

Under this alliance, Protiviti leverages Guidance Software's EnCase eDiscovery software and the technology's new Pay-Per-Use capability. This enables companies to immediately realize the benefits of the technology through Protiviti's Discovery Risk Management team as the customer transitions to an in-house process or faces a pressing eDiscovery request or regulatory matter. Current plans call for more than 100 Protiviti professionals worldwide to be certified on EnCase eDiscovery as part of the first phase of the rollout.
