Commenting on the news that Wick Hill has been appointed distributor for Guidance Software, company chairman Ian Kilpatrick said “In an increasingly dispersed and data-heavy network, seeing the wood for the trees becomes more difficult. For threat visibility, organisations need a security solution which provides a total overview, is increasingly granular, and can integrate with the existing security investment. Post-incident, companies need to easily and cost-effectively carry out forensic investigations to uncover any intellectual property theft, employee fraud, and employee policy violations, and they need to preserve the evidence. Guidance Software has considerable expertise and products in both these areas.”

Sam Maccherola,VP Sales EMEA/APAC for Guidance Software, added “The risk and cost of data breaches has grown significantly for both the public and private sectors, and mitigating the risk of critical data loss or theft is a top priority. Wick Hill and its ecosystem of VARs understand that unlimited visibility at the end point is a critical factor in mitigating the risk of critical user and customer data.”

Wick Hill will sell the full suite of EnCase products from Guidance Software, including EnCase Analytics, EnCase Cybersecurity and EnCase Enterprise.
