According to the report, “The Leaders in this year’s Magic Quadrant have four primary characteristics: first, they have solid functionality that meets one or more requirements of the left-hand side of the EDRM — identification, preservation or legal hold, collection and processing, plus early case assessment (ECA) — and one or more aspects of the right-hand side — processing, review, analysis and production; the second characteristic is that Leaders’ business models clearly demonstrate a focus on software development and sales, as opposed to the provision of services; Leaders must also show a good mix of corporate, law firm and global jurisdiction buying centers among their clients; the final characteristic is that Leaders perform well financially in terms of market share and from a growth perspective.”1

“We believe Guidance Software is well positioned to serve organizations of all sizes looking to bring e-discovery in house with our best-in-class product capabilities and services, as well as a transparent pricing model,” said Alex Andrianopoulos, vice president of Marketing for Guidance Software. “And, with the reveal of our game changing new Linked Review technology at CEIC 2014, we have demonstrated that our ongoing investment in EnCase eDiscovery innovation enables us to continue to lead the market.”
