Ottawa, ON Canada – April 7, 2003

KOM Networks, Inc., a leader in innovative data management software solutions, announces the availability of Shieldworx® version 3.0, data protection software on April 7th at the AIIM 2003 Trade Show and Conference in New York.

"The demand for data protection and security is driven by the increased emphasis in regulatory compliance and the need to sustain business continuity", said Dr. Taher Shaath, CEO of KOM Networks. "The internet-age has bolstered productivity and has left organizations scrambling to cope with a wide variety of ever-changing threats to their business critical data. In our ongoing quest to meet this challenge we are pleased to release Shieldworx 3.0, to provide a simple,efficient and effective data protection solution."

Zero-Integration Time, Instant Data Protection

Shieldworx revolutionary approach does not require any integration efforts on the part of the user to allow applications to take advantage of its data protection capabilities instantly with no impact upon performance, or change in appearance or operations.

Online Archiving Made Easy

Shieldworx converts any online storage resource of any File Server into an online archive without impacting existing data. Its benefits enhance Content-, Records-, and Document management, Email archiving and Digital Asset management applications.

Application Independent Archiving

Businesses may be hampered by individual application's inability to apply protection to any data files other than their own. However, the business may need to apply consistent protection policies to multiple applications' data sets conveniently and comprehensively. Applying identical archiving policies to the data managed by different applications provides the greatest level of compliance to regulatory mandates and corporate directives.

Zero-impact Protection

Shieldworx is fully transparent and does not impact the administrator's ability to use business critical tools such as encryption and compression. Shieldworx use also does not affect performance.

Enhance Windows Security

Shieldworx does not infringe on the file system security, or change it in any way. Enabled operations remain subject to file system security and permission authentication.

Protect Shared Data

Archive and/or reference data must often be made available for inspection, with no danger of alteration. Shieldworx makes this easy. A volume can be rendered into a Read-Only state, preventing any modifications to the files and directories while allowing read access by the users whose credentials are authenticated and enforced by the file system, as usual.


With its data protection capability, Shieldworx can render a hard disk volume to behave as an archive device. New files can be created on the volume at the same time that Shieldworx prevents any modification to any file on the volume — including the newly created files. This capability greatly enhances Record management solutions as well as Electronic Content Management. This is true electronic write once, read many (e-WORM) functionality.
