Autonomy Backup Agent

Overview

Autonomy Backup Agent is a program developed by Autonomy plc. The most used version is 8.6.2.4, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The software installer includes 35 files. A majority of the PCs this is running on, most OS versions are Windows 7 (SP1). While about 88% of users of Autonomy Backup Agent come from the United States, it is also popular in Brazil.
