WORLDSYNC, INC. UNVEILS fmDATAGUARD 1.0
First Product for FileMaker-based Solutions to Provide the Technology to
Meet Regulatory Compliance, Instant Data Rollback, and Quick Recovery from
a Crash or
SEATTLE, Wash., June 25, 2007 — FMPUG Monthly Meeting — WorldSync, Inc.
tonight announced fmDataGuard 1.0, a new product for FileMaker(R) Pro
solutions that provides the technological basis for regulatory compliance,
logs all data changes and allows for instant data rollback or quick
recovery from a crash or corruption.
“We developed fmDataGuard over several years of helping our clients contend
with regulatory requirements,” said Jason Erickson, president and CEO of
WorldSync, Inc. “During the process we realized fmDataGuard makes it
infinitely easier to recover from a crash or from errors caused by users.
Thus, we added features for rollback or roll forward in a single button
click, and made set-up an easy three-step process. The question left
unanswered is whether the recovery side or the regulatory side will be a
fmDataGuard works with FileMaker Pro 8.5 and FileMaker Server 8.0v4 and
provides complete audit trail capture, with no scripting, layout
modifications, or custom development required. fmDataGuard captures all
Add, Change and Delete actions to a separate table, keeping a field-level
change history. The resultant fmDataGuard log meets the audit log
requirements for regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA,
Gramm-Leach-Bliley, and European Union Privacy (Basel II) and Payment Card
Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
In addition fmDataGuard makes it easy to recover from a crash or
corruption, and to revert undesired data modifications. fmDataGuard uses
the logged changes to empower administrators to roll back data in a single
button click. Similarly, administrators can roll forward using log data to
reconcile the last known good backup with the current state of the database
since that backup, hence updating the backup, all in one button click. If
needed, data recovery is provided for both the field-level and the
record-level modifications. fmDataGuard also supports logging of custom
events, such as user login and logout, report generation and much more.
Setup of fmDataGuard is an easy three-step process.
WorldSync demonstrated fmDataGuard 1.0 for the first time to the FMPUG
meeting in Seattle, WA, chosen for its unique, worldwide approach to
syndicating otherwise isolated user and interest groups under one umbrella.
“FMPUG does something so different that it’s become a movement,” continued
Erickson. “Andy Gaunt and his tireless crew of volunteers are to be
commended for their work building a strong FileMaker developer community.
Beyond attending ourselves, WorldSync will also support FMPUG in its
FileMaker DevCon activities later this summer in Orlando.”
