OTTAWA, April 8 - KOM Networks, specializing in data management software, has released ShieldWorx 3.0, data protection software. ShieldWorx is designed so that it does not require any integration efforts on the part of the user. ShieldWorx converts any on-line storage resource of any file server into an on-line archive without affecting existing data. It covers all data management, including e-mail archiving and digital asset management applications. The product can render a hard disk volume to behave as an archive device. New files can be created on the volume at the same time that ShieldWorx prevents any modification to any file on the volume - including the newly created files.
