Autonomy Launches New Division: Aungate

Jun 17, 2003

Autonomy Corporation plc, a provider of infrastructure software for the enterprise, has launched Aungate, a division of Autonomy offering an automated solution for enterprise compliance and litigation support. Founded on Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), Aungate provides a technology platform that integrates with enterprise communications technologies to power real-time analysis of telephone calls, emails, and instant messages. Aungate's technology has been designed to help facilitate compliance and governance discovery and analysis processes, which are being now legislated by procedures such the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and the Basel II Accord. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires executives and auditors of public companies to document and certify the effectiveness of internal controls and procedures related to financial reporting and the Basel Accord II will require banks to supply detailed data to assess risk. Aungate technology will also help to address the challenges faced within the 80% of financial institutions that do not yet meet existing SEC compliance regulations. Aungate provides an integrated solution to automate the analysis of these unstructured information sources in real time, enabling executives to spot trends in communications and easily pinpoint potential information misuse. Aungate's Total Compliance Solution includes: Aungate Investigation Manager--monitors employee-to-employee communications and provides analysis tools to enable management to understand what communications have taken place. Aungate Voice Compliance--automated call understanding, clustering of contact trends, and automatic alerting of non-compliant calls. Aungate Email and Instant Compliance--monitors and detects email and instant messaging content and automatic routing of non-compliant content. Aungate Web and Spam filtering--network protection through automatic filtering and detection of unwanted content.
