KOM Networks™, creator and world leading provider of storage management solutions for secure archiving compliant data protection and retention, announced that KOMpliance™ has been selected as a finalist for KMWorld's 2011 KM Promise Award.

Many companies promise that their technology is the best knowledge management solution. One of the greatest challenges for organizations purchasing these technologies is to determine which of these companies will deliver on this promise. The KMWorld Promise award is given to the organization that is delivering this promise to its customers by providing innovative technology solutions for implementing and integrating knowledge management practices into their business processes.

KOM's offerings help organizations reduce risk, comply with government and industry regulations, and automate knowledge management policies, best practices, and procedures. KOMpliance looks and acts like a NAS filer but its patented policy-based file management and tamperproof archive storage enable customers to meet regulatory compliance and eDiscovery demands without any infrastructure or business process changes.

Recognizing that compliant data storage is often inhibited by budgetary constraints and vendor/technology lock-down, KOM offers large and small enterprises in highly regulated industries an affordable, comprehensive tamper-proof secure storage solution. There are no hidden costs and no learning curves; all existing active directory groups and policies can be applied painlessly. As providers of data protection we recognize that it is YOUR data. Our role is only to protect it and only for as long as your organization wants. There is no vendor lock down.

KOMpliance integrates all files regardless of type, source of origin, or storage location into a single, scalable, and extensible archive volume. Powered by Microsoft Windows and built on standard high performance enterprise class hardware of your choice, KOMpliance provides seamless integration with existing business applications and enterprise content, including email and document management systems to preserve and protect critical data no matter where it sits on the network. KOMpliance exceeds compliance regulations for data security, privacy, preservation, protection and long-term retention.

"Improving the efficiency of our storage environment and reducing the cost to manage critical data was very important to our organization, but more importantly, we needed to make sure that we were meeting strict compliance requirements for archiving health information and we needed a solution to easily restore information in the event of a disaster," said Gary Hanold, CIO at Angel Medical Center. "In addition, we were also looking for an archive storage solution that would integrate and complement our existing technology investment. We needed universal archive storage that was more than just a RAID disk and KOMpliance more than fit the bill."

On behalf of our customers, KOM Networks is proud to be named a KM Promise Award Finalist.
