GRAU DATA - FileLock
Hardware-independent Software WORM on Disk
FileLock is a hardware-independent software product which ensures WORM functionality based on standard hard disk systems. Since a lot of business relevant data must be stored in an unchangeable format for compliance reasons in accordance with country-specific legal requirements, this makes FileLock the perfect solution.
FileLock allows written files to be read, but not to be altered within a set life time. Only when this retention period timeframe is met, can the file be deleted. Unauthorized access is no longer possible with FileLock. Even existing file systems can subsequently be WORM-protected.
FileLock runs under standard Windows and also under VMware on a Virtual Machine. Every application can write data, via CIFS or NFS, directly to a file system protected by FileLock. A proprietary API is not necessary.
As FileLock is able to use the existing server and disk storage infrastructure, an audit-compliant archive can be implemented in a cost-effective manner.
FileLock can be seamlessly integrated into this existing software environment. All requirements and applications like system management, backup, virus scanner, accounting or virtualization software can continue to be operated with no adaptation required.
FileLock is scalable in accordance with customer requirements. Installations can be made under virtual machines as well as on complex 64-bit cluster structures with no difficulties. Our aim is to simplify compliance.
