The ever-growing demand to collect data in the field can stretch resources beyond limits. There is a clear need for technology solutions that increase overall productivity and effectiveness by enabling a wider range of personnel to easily acquire forensically sound evidence in the field. It has been designed specifically to allow a non-forensically trained person to collect data in a forensically sound manner.
EnCase Portable is a data acquisition solution on a USB drive that leverages the powerful search and acquisition capabilities of EnCase. The solution searches a targeted computer and automatically collects data, including documents, Internet history and artifacts, images, other digital evidence, and even entire hard drives.
Pocket-sized Data Collection and Discovery Solution
for a Variety of Applications
Unlike other solutions that reside on laptops, EnCase Portable is a pocket-sized tool that can save time and money. Users can collect forensically sound data when target systems cannot be transported due to cost constraints or the situation in the field.
Leverage Personnel Untrained in Data Collection
With EnCase Portable, even a novice computer user can search and collect data from computer systems, allowing forensic experts and other specialists to dedicate time and attention to their areas of expertise. Virtually any user can be trained in minutes.
Capture Data from Running or Powered-Off Systems
- Live Box Mode: With a computer already running, the user can collect valuable in-memory information.

Drives are write-protected by EnCase Fastbloc SE to ensure no data is changed on the target machine.
