Autonomy Corporation plc announced the launch of IDOL Enterprise Desktop Search with Active Folders. IDOL Enterprise Desktop Search delivers Autonomy’s IDOL technology to the corporate desktop by bringing together a wide variety of information ranging from office documents, email, websites, news and multimedia content from multiple locations including corporate networks, the web, the desktop and local data sources. IDOL Enterprise Desktop Search is an integrated tool that uses implicit query, working proactively with users on the corporate desktop to understand the information they require and bring it to them at the right time and in the right context. Using contextual matching, Active Folders understand the themes within any set of data and then automatically populate the folder with related information, regardless of its storage location, as soon as it becomes available in order to keep users right up to date. User flexibility allows users to create Active Folders implicitly or explicitly either by clicking on a document they are currently viewing or assigning keywords or phrases. Active folders allow users the facility to view and interact with corporate information offline. Security features including advanced authentication procedures which enable an administrator to disable a remote Active Folder if authentication is not received, (for example, in the case of a stolen or lost laptop), and SSL encryption are employed in order to safeguard all corporate assets. www.autonomy.com

Entrust, Inc. announced the Entrust Entelligence Content Analysis Toolkit designed to automatically sort and categorize large volumes of data for compliance and content management applications through artificial intelligence content analysis technology. The Entrust Entelligence Content Analysis Toolkit helps developers integrate contextual analysis capabilities such as auto-categorization or summarization into a wide variety of applications. Exposing a high-level set of APIs, the toolkit can help enable integration within C++ or Java environments. The Entrust Entelligence Content Analysis Toolkit combines Auto-Categorization, Summarization, and Search. Filters analyze content and match it to a pre-defined library of concept patterns. Entrust can provide filters as a set of policy modules or concept libraries, or they can be customized with a policy editor. The editor supports the development of relational and hierarchical concept definitions with customized thresholds. The Entrust Entelligence Content Analysis Toolkit leverages the same technology found at the core of the Entrust Entelligence Compliance Server, the Linux-based appliance designed to automatically scan incoming and outgoing e-mail for compliance with government or corporate regulations. The Entrust Entelligence Content Analysis Toolkit is now commercially available. www.entrust.com
