Why Cipher?

Cipher is the first accessible source of IP business intelligence to support teams responsible for delivering strategic value from the investment in the creation of patent assets.

 Cipher  applies the latest advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence to patent analytics and is adopted by world-class companies such as BAE Systems, ARM and Ocado. We are committed to being the leading provider of IP business intelligence and to make patent analysis accessible. To everyone.

Innovation is crucial for the development and deployment of technology, and patents play a pivotal role in protecting the ideas that will shape the future. Now, as technology is increasingly driving the world’s business agenda, understanding the importance of the world’s 100m patents is more important than ever.

Cipher provides the patent analytics required by the multi-disciplinary teams who are driving the innovation agenda.

Identify risk icon

Identify Patent Risk

 Cipher has task-specific dashboards and reports to provide the essential foundational analysis. IP business intelligence requires a 360° view. Our risk reports combine the world’s patent data with US litigation data, classification of all known Non-Practising Entities, SEPs from the main Standard Setting Organisations, IP licensing data, and cost data for 50 jurisdictions. AI enables complex data to be aggregated and analysed, delivering enhanced risk management. It’s a new way of seeing the world of IP, understanding new entrants, in new territories, with new technologies. Identify vulnerability before somebody else does.

Mange costs icon

Manage Patent Costs

That means access to real-time data delivering fresh insight on calculations that are impossible or impractical to generate by hand. Forget the cost and delay of commissioning external reports. Our comprehensive cost data calculates the cost of patent filing, translation, foreign counsel and filing route. All the mission critical information integrated to enable that you need to make quicker, and cost effective decisions. View data instantly – by competitor, technology, territory or sector, and explore graphical and list views that you can export and share.

Monitor the Competition

Comprehensive landscaping and benchmarking has, until now, been too expensive and time consuming for most companies to commission. Using Artificial Intelligence, Cipher supplements your existing patent resources with in-depth analysis of the technology landscape. Cipher can identify all patents owned and acquired within complex corporate structures, or analyse portfolios by reference to all available patent meta-data. You can compare technologies by reference to your own taxonomies or by similarity in seconds.

Internal Reporting

There’s a better way of communicating the importance of patented technology in your business. With Cipher, you’ll be able to deliver better insight and analysis to the multi-disciplinary teams with responsibility for fostering and managing innovation. Easy to use and superbly presented reports providing the analysis you need for patenting strategy or corporate reporting. Competitive intelligence reports, analysis of sector risk and cost analysis, patent due diligence – captured and communicated in shareable on-line reports.
