The KOMpliance Secure Storage software solution automates the process of retaining regulated records from multiple sources for the full length of their retention periods. Many of the records that companies must retain fall under multiple retention regulations or governance rules, a factor that adds to the complexity and cost of compliance while increasing the risk of running afoul of regulations. In response, some companies take the approach of just saving everything for ever. This is not a viable long-term option though as this drives up storage costs and degrades database performance, lengthening write, search and retrieval times. With a KOMpliance solution, setting-up automated rules-based policies to select, retain and eventually dispose of covered records is a simple and straight-forward process. With our solution, there is no hardware purchase required and no vendor lock-in to drive up costs.
