KOM Networks launches eCommerce Site Shieldworx® desktop data protection software available online

Ottawa, ON Canada – September 11, 2005

KOM Networks, Inc., a global leader of Compliance, Archiving and Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) solutions, announced the online availability of its powerful desktop data protection software, Shieldworx. Shieldworx is an integration free software that is easy to implement and runs on Windows XP and Windows 2000 Professional Operating Systems.

Shieldworx enhances the protection offered by antivirus, firewall technologies and Windows security but does not mitigate the use of anti virus packages that scan newly created content. It also offers several features such as Read-Only, Read-Write, Archive and Custom mode as well as exclusion lists and user access control. Shieldworx provides seamless integration with Windows operating system and its data protection policies work transparently within the existing file system (NTFS). Data can be accessed by the users without any interruptions.

Shieldworx benefits include:

  • Read Only: The read only mode provides maximum data protection and goes beyond the anti-virus software capabilities by 'shielding' protected files from any data modifications. Users are unable to delete format, create, rename or move files.
  • Hard Disk Protection: Shieldworx enables a hard disk volume to function as an archive resource. Data archived in the Read-Only mode cannot be altered or deleted.
  • Enhanced Security: Shieldworx does not change or infringe on Windows file system security. Operations requiring Windows authentication will continue to operate transparently.
  • Maximum Data Protection: Shieldworx provides protection against unauthorized processes, worm, hacker, malicious acts and any accidental overwrites and errors.

Shieldworx provides drag and drop archiving to hard disk, protecting data in its original form without requiring expensive proprietary hardware or complicated storage management.

"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. "Shieldworx allows for business continuity by offering maximum data protection against viruses, hackers, and other threats; offering a simple, efficient and cost-effective data protection solution," he added.
