“Meaning-Based” Risk Management Platform for Law Firms Automates Security Functions

Autonomy today unveiled a new, end-to-end, “meaning-based” platform designed to automate many time-consuming tasks law firms must deal with in order to manage documents in electronic form. The Autonomy Risk Management platform leverages Autonomy’s Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), already deployed today in over 2,000 law firms.

Autonomy today unveiled a new, end-to-end, “meaning-based” platform designed to automate many time-consuming tasks law firms must deal with in order to manage documents in electronic form. The Autonomy Risk Management platform leverages Autonomy’s Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL), already deployed today in over 2,000 law firms.

While the platform’s primary function is related to uncovering conflicts of interest, many of its functions have important implications for security. For example, the platform enables law firms to apply intelligent policies to all forms of communications, including email, social media conversations, and phone and voice recordings, either between attorneys and clients, or between attorneys in the same firm. These policies can be applied in real-time, either at the point of send or when they are archived as part of a comprehensive retention and disposition strategy.

According to Neil Araujo, CEO of Autonomy Protect Legal Systems, the platform can be used to ensure HIPPA compliance by locating and earmarking all the documents related to a particular medical case for encryption. It can also redact specific information, such as social security numbers, from non-structured documents such as memos, reports, e-mail messages and the like.

The firm holds over 170 patents connect with its meaning-based approach to search, which is designed to solve the problem of irrelevant search results by supplying context, so that lawyers looking for information about suits (the legal actions) won’t get results about fashion trends or various types of wool.
