New products increase and enhance KOM's presence as an emerging player in Storage Virtualization
Ottawa, ON Canada – April 4, 2001
KOM Networks today released two new products to add to its already impressive array of Storage Virtualization software. OptiWorx™ and Shieldworx® join StealthWorx™ as part of KOM Networks' growing offering of Storage Virtualization software solutions.
OptiWorx™ virtualizes optical storage by establishing Virtual Volumes that integrate multiple data storage devices and technologies into one homogeneous virtual storage repository that is dynamically scalable up to 500 petabytes.
Like StealthWorx™, OptiWorx™ maximizes return-on-investment while providing limitless capacity for future storage expansion to meet the growing needs and demands of any organization. Optical storage devices, such as WORM, Rewritable, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, and CD-ROM can be added on-the-fly with no downtime.
Shieldworx® is cutting edge technology for the desktop that allows users to fully protect files on their PCs with innovative security features over and above any of those associated with Windows NT/ 2000.
Using Shieldworx®'s Read-Only Mode, any hard disk partition (other than the partition that the operating system resides on) can be set to a "Read-only" state. The only possible operation is to read data when Read-Only Mode is invoked. All other operations are disabled thus preventing data from being altered or modified. This means that users are unable to create, delete, rename, move or overwrite files on the specified partition. Shieldworx® also features an Archive Mode that safeguards existing data from malicious or unintentional modification, while allowing new data to be added to the hard drive partition.
"We are proud of the advancement of OptiWorx™ into storage virtualization. With this innovative product, we continue to add to our strength as a leader in Storage Virtualization solutions," said Jeffrey Dale, President of KOM Networks. "Shieldworx® takes desktop security to a new level that protects the users data from viruses, hackers, and other threats; all the while maintaining total data integrity and security."
