Autonomy ControlPoint is the industry's first information compliance platform that enables real-time control and complete visibility of all content. ControlPoint empowers organizations to manage their unstructured content in true alignment with growing corporate, legal or regulatory standards. ControlPoint works transparently with an organization's content sources to address the critical task of ensuring that a single information compliance infrastructure can be implemented.
Hugh McKellar, KMWorld's editor-in-chief, said, "KMWorld's Trend-Setting Product awards began in 2003. This year, more than 800 products were assessed by our judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors, line-of-business managers and users. The products selected all demonstrate clearly identifiable technology breakthroughs that serve the vendors' full spectrum of constituencies, especially their customers. We are proud to acknowledge Autonomy for its industry-leading information compliance platform."
Powered by Autonomy IDOL, ControlPoint provides visibility into the potential risk of both structured and unstructured data with its unique ability to understand and process the meaning of information. Autonomy ControlPoint is a centralized policy authority for enforcing information governance policies across distributed content, including content residing in repositories such as Microsoft SharePoint, Autonomy WorkSite and content found on share drives. The solution facilitates critical governance tasks and drastically reduces prohibitive storage costs through de-duplication, manage in place control, and intelligent retention management to systematically remove redundant, outdated, and trivial content.
"In today's rapidly changing business climate, compliance has risen to the top of every organizations list of concerns," said Mike Sullivan, CEO of Autonomy Protect. "Our modular approach allows organizations to enable functionality based on their compliance, legal and IT organizations' requirements. We are honored to be recognized as a "2011 Trend-setter" by KMWorld magazine and look forward to continuing to help global corporations lower their compliance risks with Autonomy products."
