Autonomy is acquiring Zantaz, a provider of e-discovery and content archiving software.
Autonomy, of Cambridge, England, will operate US-based Zantaz as a division of Autonomy. Zantaz CEO Steve King will retain his position at the Zantaz division.
E-discovery is an emerging market within the field of data storage, archiving and recovery. Organisations are increasingly being called upon to produce copies of electronic documents, such as email, voice mail and instant messages, to respond to lawsuits or government investigations.
The combination of Autonomy and Zantaz will bring together consolidated archiving, e-discovery, analytics and real-time policy management services into one system, the companies say.
