TAIPEI, Taiwan, Feb. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FRONTEO, Inc. (NASDAQ:FTEO) (TSE:2158) (“FRONTEO” or “the Company”), a leading provider of international litigation support and big-data analysis services, today announced that FRONTEO’s Email Auditor with artificial intelligence (“AI”) has been adopted by Evergreen Marine Corp. (Taiwan) Ltd. (“Evergreen”), a global container shipping company. Evergreen has been emphasizing compliance with the competition laws of every country, and after a comprehensive assessment and evaluation, it has decided to deploy the Lit i View Email Auditor system which features a competition regulation database and AI scoring.

Unlike conventional email audit system, FRONTEO employs KIBIT to read through and score the relevancy of vast amounts of data. The patented KIBIT AI owned by FRONTEO can automatically analyze risks with accuracy and speed through KIBIT engine based on a few key emails at a very low cost and with very little manpower.

With sophisticated AI followed by semantic analysis, KIBIT can detect subtle differences that are frequently lost by general search engines which rely on keywords. For example, it can help enterprises avoid violating competition laws by simply sifting through emails related to employees of competitors playing golf or having dinner together.

In addition to identifying binding business governance regulations, this AI-based email audit system can also identify fraud, bribery, malicious poaching by competitors, and confidential information exposure, among other improper activities, to protect enterprises and their important assets. As of today, the Lit i View Email Auditor system has also been adopted by leading companies in Taiwan, including semiconductor foundries, Integrated Circuit design houses, system integrators, and panel manufacturers.
