KOMpliance & OnBase FAQs
We have Firewalls and Network Security, why do we still need KOMpliance?
The reason is that you need to know how your data was created and when it was created and that no one can destroy or modify it.
Firewalls are great at preventing external threats, but keep in mind that the majority of the threats to data typically come from within an organization and are not necessarily the result of malicious intent. So, Firewalls do not typically negate the need to deploy Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware applications. At the same time though, Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware software only detect known viruses and cannot prevent an unknown process from destroying data; and there are many ways to impact data.
Active Directory and ACLs are other necessary components for helping to protect data, but again, they are not enough, either alone or in conjunction with firewalls and Anti-Malware / Anti-Virus, to ensure complete data security or to prevent accidental or malicious modification or destruction of valuable documents.
KOMpliance prevents these threats from impacting the integrity of the data and ensures that no matter what happens no one can destroy valuable assets.
