Nuix Unstructured Data Indexing Engine Receives U.S. Patent Office Recognition of Its Unique Parallel Processing Capabilities

Nuix, the Australian 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, CEO of Nuix.

Approximately 80% of the data organisations store is unstructured—including email, other communications, documents and images. The highly complex systems that organisations use to store the largest volumes of unstructured data often have poor search and management capabilities—their contents are increasingly becoming “dark data.”

“Without Nuix’s massively parallel processing technologies, organisations 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 intelligent 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 maximise 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 platforms
  • Intelligently migrating only valuable data to new platforms or the cloud
  • Identifying and dealing with risky data such as personally identifiable information (PII), credit card data (PCI) 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 relevant data
  • Automating searches to highlight breaches of company policies
  • Enabling employees to search all their own data, organisation-wide
  • Combining searches over structured and unstructured data to understand what happened and why
  • Unlocking value by mining unstructured data for business insights and intelligence.

“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.”

Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by FTC, CUI/DFARS, EU-GDPR and the underlying National Cybersecurity Framework suggest the need for a ground-up re-thinking of security strategies and compliance actions. This session offers actionable advice based on case studies to demonstrate the impact of security and privacy attributes for the cloud-backed IoT and AI ecosystem.
Transformation Abstract Encryption and privacy in the cloud is a daunting yet essential task for both security practitioners and application developers, especially as applications continue moving to the cloud at an exponential rate. What are some best practices and processes for enterprises to follow that balance both security and ease of use requirements? What technologies are available to empower enterprises with code, data and key protection from cloud providers, system administrators, insiders, government compulsion, and network hackers? Join Ambuj Kumar (CEO, Fortanix) to discuss best practices and technologies for enterprises to securely transition to a multi-cloud hybrid world.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
