Nuix Unstructured Data Indexing Engine Receives U.S. Patent Office Recognition of Its Unique Parallel Processing Capabilities
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Nuix (News - Alert), a worldwide provider of information management technologies, is
due to be issued a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on
core features of the Nuix unstructured data indexing engine, with
additional patents pending. Nuix's unique parallel-processing approach
to unstructured data has underpinned its rapid growth and success in the
eDiscovery, investigation and information governance markets.
"Nuix can index unstructured data faster than any other application on
the market because it was designed from the outset for parallel
processing," said Eddie Sheehy (News - Alert), CEO of Nuix.
Approximately 80% of the data organizations store is
unstructured-including email, other communications, documents and
images. The highly complex systems that organizations use to store the
largest volumes of unstructured data often have poor search and
management capabilities-their contents are increasingly becoming "dark
"Without Nuix's massively parallel processing technologies,
organizations will find it extremely difficult to gain insights into
enormous unstructured data sets quickly and thoroughly enough to achieve
tangible, defensible business benefits," said Sheehy.
The patent describes a unique combination of load balancing, fault
tolerance and ntelligent processing technologies that enable Nuix to
index vast quantities of unstructured data with forensic precision, even
in complex storage repositories such as archives and compliance storage.
These technologies maximize processing speed and scalability on a small
hardware footprint, enabling rapid deployment of on-premise solutions.
Current customer use cases include:
Deleting redundant, obsolete and trivial data from most storage
Intelligently migrating only valuable data to new platforms or the
Identifying and dealing with risky data such as personally
identifiable information (PII), credit card data (PCI (News - Alert)) and personal
health information (PHI)
Locating and managing company records and contracts that are not
stored or secured appropriately
Conducting rapid, thorough eDiscovery and investigation on the most
Automating searches to highlight breaches of company policies
Enabling employees to search all their own data, organization-wide
Combining searches over structured and unstructured data to understand
what happened and why
Unlocking value by mining unstructured data for business insights and
"The practical outcome of our parallel processing approach is customers
start to see results within hours," said Sheehy. "They can complete in
days or weeks tasks they previous thought impossible."
