EnCase Portable… Data Collection on the move

So EnCase are releasing a new USB offering, called EnCase Portable. I am a big fan of the EnCase product, having attending many of their training courses, and using their product in the corporate environment.

EnCase say this new tool makes data gathering in the field a doddle, and I guess it something similar to Microsofts Cofee Offering (I will speak about this more once I get a copy) and allows anyone to plug in, say whats needed and let the software do the data collection.

I think this is the way alot of these tools will be going for data collection, especially as the use of NetBooks is growing and they dont have a CD drive to boot from.

EnCase Portable is a data acquisition solution delivered 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.

Unlike other solutions that reside on laptops, EnCase Portable is a pocket-sized tool that saves time and money.  Users can collect forensically-sound data when target systems cannot be transported due to cost or time constraints imposed in field situations.
