KOM Networks to showcase compliant hard disk archiving (e-WORM) solutions at CeBIT 2006

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, March 09 - 2006 @ 08:00

The demonstrations, which can be seen in Hall 1, Stand G77 and in Hall 1, Stand H100, will showcase KOMworx as the only solution that can deliver data archiving on hard disk and file shredding using standard Windows based platforms.

The KOMworx demonstrations will highlight e-WORM solutions that permanently archive fixed content data on hard disks in an un-alterable format. In addition to facilitating disaster recovery by storing data on portable media, KOMworx enables companies to implement compliance strategies to meet regulations such as AIPA, Basel II, NF Z 42-013, PD0008, SOX, SEC 17a-4, NASD, GDPdU and GoBS.

“Companies across Europe are investing for profitable growth. They want storage solutions that will concurrently support future expansion and lower operational cost,” said Chris Jones, Regional Manager, KOM Networks, Middle East.

“We would like to leverage CeBIT to show that KOM Networks has the software, solutions and industry partnerships to satisfy the mix of requirements that European organizations are facing,”

Chris continued.

Using KOMworx along with Compliant Write Once UDO Media from Plasmon, a strategic partner of KOM Networks, the demonstrations will also show the file shredding features that allow targeted data sectors on Compliant Write Once Media to be physically destroyed. The KOMworx shred operation on UDO media leaves no residual traces of previously written data, but retains an audit trail to verify that the data was destroyed. This new feature is a key advantage for enterprises where compliance is a major concern.

“Europe is our biggest market outside of North America, and CeBIT provides the best venue for us to connect with our European partners and customers,” said Dr. Taher Shaath, CEO of KOM Networks. “This year, we look forward to introducing new technologies and products that distinguish us from competitors and underscore our innovations in data archiving solutions to address security, storage, and ease-of-use.”

Demonstrated in a live Windows environment, KOMworx solutions are grouped around KOM Networks’ three main initiatives designed to address pressing business issues facing senior IT and business leaders:

• Secure archiving to hard disk and optical media for maintaining business continuity, avoiding downtime and recovering from disaster

• Management of heterogeneous storage environments

• Compliance with new and emerging data retention legislation and management of fixed content data
