WORLDSYNC, INC. RELEASES FIRST UPDATE TO fmDATAGUARD
— Now Compatible With the New FileMaker 9, fmDataGuard Provides Technology
to Meet Regulatory Compliance, Instant Data Rollback and Quick Recovery
from Crash or Corruption —
BERKELEY, Calif., July 11, 2007 — WorldSync, Inc. today released
fmDataGuard 1.0v2, now compatible with new FileMaker Pro 9 and FileMaker
Server 9. fmDataGuard 1.0v2 represents the first update to its recently
introduced product for FileMaker Pro solutions which provides the
technological basis for regulatory compliance, logs all data changes and
allows for instant data rollback or quick recovery from a crash or
“fmDataGuard provides companion capabilities to both of these exciting new
versions of FileMaker software,” said Jason Erickson, president and CEO of
WorldSync, Inc. “fmDataGuard practically meets the technological regulatory
requirements on its own, while simultaneously making it easier to recover
from a crash or from errors caused by users. We’re extremely thrilled with
the advances FileMaker has made in FileMaker Pro 9 and FileMaker Server 9,
and the potential they provide for fmDataGuard’s future.”
fmDataGuard 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.
“Clearly we continue to support fmDataGuard in solutions built on FMP8.5
and FMS8,” continued Erickson. “That said, the seamless connectivity to
external SQL-based data sources and the FileMaker PHP API support are truly
exciting developments, not just for our future, but for the whole FileMaker
development community. This should be one super exciting DevCon.”
