KOMworx® patented e-WORM technology provides File Retention & Protection for Fixed Content Archiving
Ottawa, ON Canada – September 21, 2005
KOM Software, Inc., a global leader of Compliance, Archiving and Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) solutions, today announced a powerful add-on to the already feature rich KOMworx suite of products—fixed content Hard-Disk archiving (e-WORM). A significant breakthrough, e-WORM provides long term archiving of fixed content data such as e-mail messages, financial records, legal documents and X-Ray images on Hard Disk, ensuring data security and data accessibility while maintaining Hard-Disk performance.
Compliance today is not an option. Organizations are under increased pressure and scrutiny to comply with various government regulations such as SEC 17a-4, Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, DoD 5015.2 and NASD among others. KOMworx e-WORM solution can transform standard disk hardware into non-rewriteable, non-erasable storage media that satisfy both best practices and the most stringent government regulations in achieving compliance. KOM Software developed the e-WORM solution based on a patented technology, which transparently archives files to High Performance RAID arrays and other hard disks for long-term data retention. With e-WORM, customers can leverage their existing hardware of choice to archive their data and protect it from being altered or deleted during the storage retention period.
"KOM Software has always focused on simplifying customer storage challenges and helping them achieve compliance. By offering WORM archiving on hard disk, KOM Software customers are guaranteed hard disk high performance, maximum security and high accessibility to fixed content data ," said Dr. Taher Shaath, CEO of KOM Software. "KOM Software constantly strives to provide customers with simple and cost effective solutions. The e-WORM solution is a perfect example, which uses open systems architecture and customers' hardware of choice in meeting their business needs and budgetary constraints," Dr. Shaath added.
KOMworx provides policy-based, dynamically managed software storage solutions that help a wide range of organizations archive, access and protect their digital assets across multiple storage devices. KOMworx adaptive design enables customers to combine various storage technologies, including hard disk, SAN and NAS, into a single global namespace for easy manageability. KOMworx additional capabilities include e-WORM++ (which combines WORM permanence with high performance disk storage), ILM, NAS aggregation and dynamic capacity management.
"Today's organizations are dealing with ever more internal best practices demands as well as external compliance regulations," said Arsenio Batoy, President of Optical Laser. "The continuous increase in fixed content data requires solutions that are specifically designed for the secure storage and always available access of such information. KOM Software e-WORM solution fits the bill by delivering a secure, scalable and high performance solution that can help businesses archive data and achieve compliance," he added.
