Guidance Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID) the World Leader in Digital Investigations, today announced that its EnCase(R) family of products has been selected as a Reader Trust Award finalist in the Computer Forensic Solution category and its training program a Professional Awards finalist in the IT Security-related Training Program category of the 2015 SC Awards. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards Dinner on April 21 during the RSA(R) Conference in San Francisco.

A panel representing a cross-section of SC Magazine’s readership from large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets, selected EnCase from the hundreds of entries submitted across multiple technology categories. The winners of the Professional Award category are selected by an expert panel of judges who conducted in-depth analysis and considered many factors – such as applicable research, analyst reports and/or product reviews – to narrow down the field of hundreds of submissions to just the top finalists.
