Autonomy Unveils New Situational Awareness Web Portal to Revolutionize the Security Center

Oct. 6, 2008

CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, California , October 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today unveiled its new unique Situational Awareness Web Portal that offers global companies the ability to control and monitor their security and surveillance activities through a rich user interface accessible over a standard Internet connection. This Portal not only provides security officers with a secure, comprehensive view and analysis of security scenarios, but it also allows them access to all relevant intelligence information without being restricted to the Security and Control Centre. This frees security officers to engage in hands-on investigation and monitoring throughout the premise, allowing them to keep abreast of the situation on the rest of the premises via a mobile device, or through portals installed in strategic locations.

Built on Autonomy's Meaning Based Computing technology, IDOL, the Portal is an extension to Autonomy Virage's Command and Control platform that brings together information from a wide range of applications and allows holistic monitoring and analysis of security data in real-time. The new system is able to understand the significance of an event and automatically connect it to relevant intelligence. For example, an intercepted radio conversation can be used to automatically identify the speakers, understand what is being discussed, and retrieve any existing intelligence regarding the subject. This helps to streamline traditional investigative methods and facilitate investigative work by performing conceptual analysis to reveal trends and patterns hidden in the data set.

Autonomy's unique conceptual approach to security and surveillance enables security officers to gain an acute sense of situational awareness and delivers the best technology that provides security officers with a critical asset for risk assessment and incident response planning. In addition, the Portal can be integrated with a wide variety of data sources, such as access control, video surveillance, license plate recognition, facial recognition and scene analysis and feed this information through a single user interface, allowing analysis to be conducted effectively and in real-time.

"Autonomy has long been the leader in security and surveillance technologies. The new Situational Awareness Web Portal is yet another powerful tool to enable security professionals to connect to intelligence in real-time, offering the unrivalled ability to automate security operations and uncover threats which would otherwise be missed," said David Humphrey , Managing Director of Autonomy Virage. "The Portal gives us a new leading edge in the market and offers great advantages to companies by allowing security officers to securely monitor and analyze intelligence through a standard Internet Connection."

The Situational Awareness Portal is part of Autonomy Virage's Command and Control suite which automates the capture, analysis, reporting and retrieval of security information. It is a security infrastructure platform that seamlessly integrates with the full range of security and surveillance equipment creating a completely scalable security platform.
