Autonomy Extends End-to-End eDiscovery Leadership with Powerful Chaining Console

NEW YORK, January 31, 2011 - LegalTech — Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader
in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today unveiled the Autonomy
Chaining Console, a powerful dashboard that provides corporate legal
departments with greater visibility and defensibility. By eliminating the
need for risky and inefficient data handoffs through each step of the
eDiscovery process, the Chaining Console allows in-house and outside counsel
to form a "virtual chain," so they can stay in lock-step on legal matters
through all phases of the EDRM.

Managing litigation has traditionally been a highly complex and costly
process. The typical corporation must simultaneously manage hundreds of cases
and dozens of law firms. Legal teams struggle to gain visibility into their
overall case activity, risks, and potential costs. Additionally, legacy tools
create risk through each step in the process, requiring unnecessary import,
export, and transfer of data, increasing the risk of spoliation and costly
sanctions by the courts.

Autonomy's Chaining Console eliminates these complexities and risks by
providing the legal team with insight into the overall litigation profile of
the corporation, all from one dashboard. The general counsel obtains an
immediate understanding of overall risk and exposure, litigation counsel
gains insight into the case management process, and outside counsel has
immediate access to the information needed to formulate and execute a winning
legal strategy.

For the first time, corporate counsel and outside counsel can link
together to work directly on cases in real-time, forming a chain between the
various legal experts for a particular case. These dynamic virtual teams can
use one common platform to manage the entire litigation process throughout
the entire chain of custody. Since there are no risky handoffs or importing
and exporting of data, the legal team can produce a defensible and auditable

The Autonomy Chaining Console provides the following capabilities:

    -- Visibility into each phase of the EDRM
    -- Secure cloud access, linking together inside and outside counsel
    -- Analysis of critical data points, including: case status, cost, data
       volume, and litigation trends
    -- Automatic reports demonstrating defensibility and chain of custody

"The Autonomy Chaining Console provides visibility into complex
litigation through a single interface," said Mike Sullivan, CEO of Autonomy
Protect. "By automating defensibility, our customers benefit from the use of
a common end-to-end eDiscovery platform that maintains chain of custody while
working with dozens of law firms across hundreds of simultaneous cases."
