WASHINGTON, Aug. 27, 2012 — /BackupReview.info/ — Autonomy, an HP Company, today unveiled three new technologies designed to help law firms and corporate legal departments capitalize on the increasing convergence of social, cloud and mobile technologies at home and in the workplace.
These innovations – co-developed by Autonomy and HP Labs, and being shown at the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) conference – allow organizations to deliver these capabilities to knowledge workers in a secure, auditable and scalable manner.
“Law firms today are navigating an IT landscape in which readily available and often free consumer grade services may be used by attorneys for knowledge management, mobility, file sharing and collaboration, but these often create security and visibility risks for the firm,” said Doug Caddell, Managing Director, HBR Consulting, a leader in consulting to the legal sector. “These innovations by Autonomy begin to provide law firms with enterprise grade and secure alternatives enabling firms to move forward with ubiquitous anytime/anywhere computing that has become a part of our everyday culture.”
Discover new content, connections and communities with social search
The new functionality brings consumer-like collaboration trends into the enterprise, such as:
“As a leading global law firm, we are constantly looking for innovative ways to identify and leverage internal expertise,” said Harris Tilevitz, CTO, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP & Affiliates. “By engaging users in an interactive process of information discovery and enabling communities of interest, Compass appears to provide a powerful new capability to the industry, and we are actively working with Autonomy to better understand how it could be used at our firm and incorporated into our new Autonomy-powered Firm Experience system.”
Secure and integrated cloud-based document sharing
Knowledge workers today encounter numerous barriers to collaboration: file sizes too large for email, complicated FTP servers, unsecure public file sharing mechanisms that breach security policies, and version control issues. Using this new capability, employees and business partners can share documents of any size both internally and with external collaborators in a secure and compliant environment via a single mouse click.
The capability being demonstrated supports an integrated audit trail that shows who has shared and viewed any document, and can track versioning between internal and external collaborators. This capability enables users to access shared content from desktops or mobile devices, while third-party access comes from a simple and secure registration process.
Enhanced document image capture and search for mobile devices
These capabilities deliver many useful applications in the legal field. For example, attorneys can capture wet signatures on engagement letters, affidavits and other legal documents from the convenience of their mobile device.
“Autonomy has long been an innovator in information management for the legal Industry,” said Neil Araujo, chief executive officer, Autonomy Protect Legal. “Together with HP Labs, we are delivering product innovations that enable law firms to take advantage of consumer technologies like social, cloud and mobile collaboration, while at the same time helping them to retain the same security and enterprise system requirements they have come to expect from Autonomy.”
To see these technologies in action, please visit Autonomy’s ILTA booth No. 400-402. Neil Araujo and Dan Carmel, head of ECM Strategy and Solutions at Autonomy, an HP Company, will also showcase these innovations during their presentation, “Autonomy, an HP Company – One Year In” today at 4 p.m. ET in room Woodrow Wilson C.
