Autonomy Recognized as One of the Top Performing Tech Companies of 2010

CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, December 16, 2010 - Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in
infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that it has been
named to Bloomberg Businessweek's Hot Tech 50 list, an annual, global ranking
of the top performing companies in technology. The Bloomberg Businessweek Hot
Tech 50 is based on a weighted measurement of several metrics, including
overall sales growth, employee growth, return on investment capital, and
stock return.

"The global technology landscape is undergoing a fundamental
restructuring - based on the inexorable growth of unstructured information,
including email, social media, video, and web content," said Mike Lynch, CEO
of Autonomy. "Autonomy is at the forefront of this monumental shift, by
enabling businesses to automatically understand the meaning within all this
data and act on it in real-time. Autonomy's Meaning Based Computing platform
is universal, spanning everything from helping a marketer drive improved
campaign returns on their website, to enabling a lawyer to pinpoint the exact
content needed to win a case, to helping a doctor improve quality of care
through more accurate diagnoses."
