CAMBRIDGE, England and SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autonomy Corporation plc (LSE: AU. or AU.L), a global leader in infrastructure software for the enterprise, today announced that the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (the Metropolitan) has selected Autonomy's end-to-end eDiscovery platform for its Electronic Discovery Management System. The Autonomy platform includes Legal Hold, Investigator and Early Case Assessment, Introspect, and Enterprise Archiving Solution (EAS) and is designed to effectively comply with the U.S. Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) as well as the Public Records Act. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is a consortium of 26 cities and water districts that provides drinking water to nearly 19 million people in parts of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties.

Autonomy delivers the industry's most comprehensive, modular end-to-end eDiscovery platform that includes media restoration, consolidated archiving, legal hold, preservation and collection, early case assessment, advanced electronic data discovery, review, production, real-time policy management and analytics functions, all built on a single meaning-based information access platform – Autonomy's Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL). IDOL automates the understanding and processing of all sources of information including email, instant messages, files, applications, voice and video. This unique end-to-end solution mitigates risk and reduces costs by enabling customer data to pass seamlessly through the eDiscovery process, without the need for multiple vendors that could compromise the data or taint the chain of custody.

"With the increasing government regulations in eDiscovery coupled with the ever-growing volume of electronically stored information (ESI), organizations in both the private and public sectors must conduct an in-depth evaluation of the effectiveness of their information management system," said Mike Sullivan, CEO of Autonomy ZANTAZ. "Organizations demand an end-to-end eDiscovery solution that offers ease of use as well as high levels of scalability, security, speed of processing, and support for foreign languages and audio."
