NEW YORK, July 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UBIC, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBIC) (TSE:2158) ("UBIC" or "the Company"), a leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI)-based big-data analysis services, today announced the addition of new and improved functions installed in Lit i View EMAIL AUDITOR ("LiV EMAIL AUDITOR"). LiV EMAIL AUDITOR is an email audit system that automatically detects signs of fraud, including cartel activities and information theft.
LiV EMAIL AUDITOR, which UBIC released in April 2014, is equipped with Predictive Coding, UBIC's proprietary AI-based technology. This system has already been implemented by more than 5,000 users in and outside Japan. The enhancement of its functions at this time is intended to improve the efficiency of email audits, examine suspicious emails more closely, expedite the detection of and response to signs of fraud, and increase the accuracy of the identification of fraud. Starting today, UBIC will provide the enhanced system to all existing and new customers.
The noteworthy enhanced functions are as follows:
Archiving and restoration of past emails:
Under the new system, emails are stored in a compressed format as archive data separate from data for evaluation. It is now possible to re-evaluate past emails retroactively by searching through archive data and restoring relevant data as necessary.
More comprehensive risk evaluation settings:
The Risk Prediction function has been enhanced in order to make it possible to evaluate risk meticulously by analyzing emails sorted by individual and by conducting customized risk analysis across the three phases of fraud: conception, preparation and execution.
Enhanced reporting function:
The Auditing Report function has been enhanced in order to make it possible to display reports focusing on a relevant period and targeted accounts, and to output a document report in PDF form.
In addition, the processing time has been reduced by one third.
