Using EnCase with the Latest Release of Belkasoft Evidence Center

Yuri Gubanov, Belkasoft

Belkasoft has just updated its digital forensics suite, Belkasoft Evidence Center, making the tool a true, all-in-one forensic solution. When seamlessly integrated with EnCase, the two tools can cover nearly every digital forensic need. Belkasoft Evidence Center helps you jump-start investigations by automatically discovering evidence gathered from many different sources.

In its biggest update in two years, Belkasoft has done more than learn a few new tricks. It now extracts and analyzes evidence from pretty much any data source you can imagine. Hard drives and drive images with Windows, Linux, Ubuntu, and many other operating systems; smartphone backups in all popular formats; UFED images and chip-off dumps; live memory dumps; and many virtual machines can be scanned for available evidence. This major update turns Belkasoft Evidence Center into a true, all-in-one digital forensic tool.

We added several new modules to bring about these changes.

During the first week of December 2014, Guidance Software ran a computer forensics training course at its Slough offices in the UK, with the aim of helping forensic practitioners to understand and use EnCase as part of their investigations. 


The course was developed by Guidance Software with a view to introducing new digital forensics practitioners to the field. The students are usually new IT security professionals, law enforcement agents and forensic investigators, and many have minimal training in computing.  Computer Forensics I is available both in person at one of Guidance Software's training centres, or online via their OnDemand solution, which provides live remote classes for students around the world.
