Autonomy Intros Info Governance

CAMBRIDGE, U.K. and SAN FRANCISCO -- Autonomy (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today introduced Autonomy Information Governance, the industrys first information governance platform that automates real-time policy management based on forming a conceptual and contextual understanding of all enterprise information. Autonomy’s unique capability is a major step forward in reducing risks inherent in information by applying policy based on understanding what an email, document or phone recording says instead of relying solely on its metadata.

In the wake of the amended Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), sub-prime mortgage and credit crisis and highly publicized internal fraud cases, organizations are under increased pressure to consistently implement information policies for finding, holding and disposing of information in a timely manner. Although most global 2000 organizations have defined and updated their information management policies, the complexities of implementing and enforcing these policies is challenging even the world’s leading companies.

“Most organizations are under the misconception that their current technologies are enough; that is until they’ve had one really bad experience,” said Browning Marean, Partner, DLA Piper US LLP. “With 14,000 separate records retention regulations out there and the complexities and costs being incurred just trying to comply with legal hold requests, a company doesn’t have the capability to manage this without advanced technology.”
