FILELOCK Overview

FILELOCK is a storage hardware independent software product from Grau Data which ensures WORM functionality with standard Microsoft NTFS file systems.

FILELOCK enables simple and audit-compliant archiving of company data according to country regulations such as: SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act, USA); SEC 17a-4 (USA); HIPPA (USA); FDA 21 CRF Part 11 (USA); ISO 18501/18509; and Canadian Electronic Evidence Act.

FILELOCK allows written files to be read, but not to be altered within a set lifetime. Only when this “retention period“ is up, can this data be altered or deleted. Unauthorized file  alterations/deletions are no longer possible with FILELOCK. Even existing NTFS file systems can subsequently be write-protected. FILELOCK runs under Microsoft Windows and also under VMware on “Virtual Machines“. Every application, local or remote, can read/write data directly to an NTFS file system protected by FILELOCK.

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.

Unlike many existing compliance storage management products, FILELOCK aims to simplify compliance and archiving.
