Guidance Software and Lastline Partner for Faster Incident Response

News | Apr 18, 2017

New integration combines advanced threat intelligence and endpoint detection and response to reduce the time between detection and triage from days, to minutes.

PASADENA, Calif. – April 18, 2017 Guidance Software, the makers of EnCase®, the gold standard in forensic security, today announced a strategic partnership and integration with Lastline, a leader in advanced malware detection. The integration combines EnCase® Endpoint Security with Lastline® Enterprise to automate incident response workflows and greatly reduce the time from detection to triage and response.

“Sophisticated malware is no longer reserved for attacks on large organizations,” said Brian Laing, Vice President of Business Development & Products. “The proliferation of advanced and zero-day attacks to include midmarket and in some cases, the SMB market, reinforces the pressing need for enterprise-grade malware protection at all levels of the market. We are excited to partner with Guidance Software as an industry pioneer in rapid detection and response to offer our customers a streamlined workflow to greatly increase their ability to respond to advanced cyberattacks”

With the new integration, Lastline Enterprise immediately shares threat intelligence with EnCase Endpoint Security when it detects advanced malware. EnCase Endpoint Security validates potential threats by enriching the data and providing a threat score that enables security teams to prioritize the response.

“Improving incident response workflows is critical as security teams face an ever increasing number of attacks,” said Guidance Senior Technical Manager Paul Shomo. “Combining the incident response capability of EnCase Endpoint Security with advanced threat intelligence from Lastline will greatly increase the speed with which our customers can respond to security alerts. Guidance is committed to achieving maximum results and ROI for customers through integrations with leading cybersecurity providers like Lastline.”

The unified incident response workflow leveraging Guidance and Lastline enables:

  • Behavior-based detection – detect advanced and zero-day attacks, such as APT attacks, that signature-based solutions miss
  • Automated endpoint validation – ensure high-risk devices get the immediate attention they warrant
  • A 360-degree view of potentially effected endpoints – greatly reduce time to remediation by providing necessary information to security teams to fully assess the scope of the attack the moment it is first detected.
  • Complete Remediation capabilities – block command and control traffic, kill malicious processes, and wipe offending files to ensure complete, forensic threat remediation

Lastline will be demonstrating the integration and their advanced threat detection capabilities at Enfuse 2017 hosted by Guidance.  For more information registering for Enfuse, the full conference agenda, and more visit
