Sword & Shield Acquired Forensic Discoveries LLC

KNOXVILLE, TN -- December 18th 2008 -- Sword & Shield Enterprise Security is pleased to announce the acquisition of Forensic Discoveries, LLC, the fastest growing company in East Tennessee specializing in computer forensics and electronic discovery.

“This acquisition demonstrates the commitment by Sword & Shield to become an industry leader in digital forensics and electronic discovery with the same dedication that has made them a nationally respected information security firm,” said Bill Dean, founder of Forensic Discoveries and director of computer forensics at Sword & Shield. “Forensic Discoveries will compliment the current professional service offerings of Sword & Shield by providing a division that is focused on the growing demand for both digital forensics and electronic discovery.”

The market for computer and network forensic services continues to be strong as corporations are burdened with the increase of data theft, employee theft, employee compliance and policy violation, embezzlement, fraud, and other cyber crimes. Additionally, corporations are continuing to struggle with electronic Discovery (eDiscovery) and complying with the amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) established in 2006. Forrester Research believes eDiscovery technology spending will increase to over $4.8B by 2011. Due to the growing demand for these services, Forensic Discoveries has expanded at a rapid rate.
