CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, October 28, 2010 - Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in

due to its growth rate of 796% from 2005 to 2009, despite the global
recession. Previous winners have included some of the most dynamic players in

experienced a meteoric rise. With a market cap of $6 billion, Autonomy is now
the largest software company in the UK and the second largest in Europe. At
the heart of Autonomy's sustained business success lies Autonomy's unique

growth over the last few years," said Ian Black, Head of Global Operations at

yet one of the country's 50 fastest growing technology companies is a unique
combination of achievements. We are delighted that our meaning-based
