Verdasys’ Enterprise Information Protection Platform Integrated with Autonomy’s Meaning-Based Computing Technology

Verdasys, Inc. the leading provider of Enterprise Information Protection (EIP) for the Global 2000, today announced that Autonomy (LSE: AU), a global leader in information protection software for the enterprise, has renewed its OEM agreement with Verdasys to extend their strategic partnership. Verdasys leverages Autonomy’s core infrastructure software, the Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), to power Verdasys Digital Guardian, a content inspection and data classification solution used by leading financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, and technology companies.

The first integration of the Autonomy technology and the Digital Guardian product was in November 2006, offering content inspection, discovery and classification of sensitive data on networks, email, host machines and servers across the extended enterprise for data at rest, in use, and in motion. Over that time, this integrated technology has been successfully deployed by over 100 customers and to more than 300,000 users worldwide, including several very large implementations with government institutions in both the US and abroad.

“Verdasys’ Digital Guardian solution benefits from the rich capabilities of the Autonomy IDOL engine, which includes powerful language support and highly accurate detection capabilities,” said Seth Birnbaum, Chief Executive Officer of Verdasys. “These technologies have been combined to create the most differentiated and comprehensive solution in the EIP market, and have allowed us to accelerate the momentum of our business across multiple industry verticals and geographies.”

“We are proud to help Verdasys deliver such a strong and comprehensive product to the EIP market”, said Stouffer Egan, Chief Executive Officer of Autonomy Inc. U.S. “The rapid uptake of the product is a result of the innovative design of the Verdasys Digital Guardian architecture and the power of IDOL’s Meaning-Based Computing technology. We look forward to continuing our very successful relationship with Verdasys as we deliver innovations that meet the evolving needs of the data loss prevention market.”
