Launch Cipher


Cipher increases your ability to access information about global patenting trends and litigation. Used by many of the world’s top patent owners, Cipher is as a major improvement when compared to the significant amount of time and effort currently required to generate accurate and reliable results.

Advances in AI and machine learning mean that you now can generate objective and repeatable results at a fraction of the cost of conventional approaches. This releases your valuable resources to high value tasks that only humans can do.

Cipher’s analysis can be delivered as a software subscription or for bespoke projects.

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.
