Guidance Software: A Lawsuit's Best Friend: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance

"There's something unusual about the Guidance Software: The company never received any venture capital. But then again, it offers what is becoming a 'must-have' product."

"Essentially, Guidance helps its customers conduct digital investigations. Since 1998, thousands of customers have used the company's applications for criminal and civil cases -- including the officials involved in the Scott Peterson murder trial. The software has actually been cited in more than 35 judicial opinions. The track record is certainly a major competitive advantage for Guidance, and it has allowed the company to build an impressive board of directors, which includes former CIA director George Tenet and former U.S. cyber-security chief Amit Yoran."
