Guidance Software Partners with kCura to Accelerate the e-Discovery Process

News | Oct 10, 2016

Combined EnCase and Relativity integration provides best-of-breed capabilities for e-discovery customers

PASADENA, Calif. – October 10, 2016 Guidance Software, the makers of EnCase®, the gold standard in forensic security, today announced an integration between market-leading e-discovery tools, EnCase eDiscovery and Relativity.

“This integration is an opportunity to simplify and accelerate e-discovery by bringing two great ecosystems together,” said kCura CEO Andrew Sieja. “Tying our community of more than 140,000 Relativity users to Guidance’s 33 million endpoints means we can provide a more complete and more connected e-discovery experience.”

The ability to leverage solutions across multiple stages of the e-discovery process is critical for organizations looking to achieve efficiency with ever-increasing caseloads. The integration between EnCase eDiscovery and Relativity ensures e-discovery teams will be able to work with and move their data more quickly and intelligently.

“As the courts increasingly focus on cyber-related litigation to combat ransomware and other digital security matters, customers need solutions for a wide variety of e-discovery challenges,” said Guidance Software CEO Patrick Dennis. “Integrating with Relativity underscores our strategy to provide an open platform that leverages leading technology across complex workflows.”

The integration between EnCase eDiscovery and Relativity is unique, in that it:

  • Eliminates the creation of load files; users can log into Relativity from within EnCase, export data directly and be ready for review
  • Maps and transfers native files and metadata seamlessly into any Relativity workspace logically grouped by custodian and data source
  • Automatically appends only new items to Relativity; no need to worry about creating duplicates

Guidance will be discussing the integration during Relativity Fest, an annual conference hosted by kCura and designed to educate and connect the e-discovery community. Relativity Fest is being held in Chicago from October 9-11.

This integration is now available through EnCase eDiscovery 5.14 For more information on pricing, packaging and upgrades, please contact For more information about EnCase eDiscovery, visit
