Sacramento, Calif, May 24, 2010, Today HBGary (http://www.hbgary.com), a leading provider of best-in-class enterprise threat detection solutions for government agencies and Fortune 500 organizations, announced Digital DNA™ , HBGary’s patent-pending core technology, for Guidance Software’s remote forensics solution, EnCase' Enterprise. HBGary plans to demo this integrated solution at the Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference (CEIC) 2010 this week.

Without relying on the operating system which itself may be subverted, HBGary Digital DNA™ uses automated physical memory analysis to reveal all running software and their underlying behaviors to flag malware and suspicious binaries. Malware threats are automatically detected on endpoint nodes and displayed on the dashboard console. These malware behavioral traits provide quick threat metadata -- critical threat intelligence needed to protect today’s enterprise systems against advanced, unknown attacks. HBGary’s Digital DNA technology currently is being used by consulting firms, financial firms, government agencies, DoD, entertainment, high technology and pharmaceutical firms. “Guidance Software has a strong presence in the incident response space and we felt that it was a natural extension for our joint customers to be able to use Digital DNA on an enterprise basis leveraging the EnCase infrastructure. This integrated solutions allows a more thorough and deep incident response experience looking at ALL areas of the computer,” said Penny Leavy, President of HBGary, Inc. HBGary Participation at CEIC 2010 HBGary will demonstrate its Digital DNA technology at the Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference (CEIC) from May 24th – May 27th at Booth #203 at the Red Rock Resort in Summerlin, Nevada.
