WorldSync Ships fmDataGuard 1.1


— Now With Support to Log Viewed Data, fmDataGuard Provides Audit Technology
to Meet Regulatory Compliance, Instant Data Rollback and Quick Recovery
from Crash or Corruption —

BERKELEY, Calif., Nov. 28, 2007 — WorldSync, Inc. today released
fmDataGuard 1.1, with new support for logging Viewed data, and new SQL
query and execution capabilities.

fmDataGuard 1.1 provides those solutions built with FileMaker(R) Pro
software with the technological basis for regulatory audit trail
compliance, logs all data changes, and allows for instant data rollback or
quick recovery from a crash or corruption. The new View option for data
logging gives the developer another choice for control over which, and how,
events are logged.

Beyond new support for logging Viewed data, fmDataGuard also introduces a
new SQL Execute capability. Developers can now send dynamic SQL queries and
execute functions directly to FileMaker, enabling them to include data
modifications to remote tables, constantly update data in layouts, perform
data updates without requiring special relationships, or construct advanced
relationships including “or” criteria.

fmDataGuard 1.1 is also a maintenance release with minor, optional function
enhancements and fixes to reported issues. The fmDataGuard 1.1 update is
available free of charge to all registered fmDataGuard customers from the
WorldSync, Inc. web site at: (

“We recently learned HIPAA mandates can be interpreted to require logging
when a record is even viewed, irrespective of modification, printing or
some other action,” explained Jason Erickson, president and CEO of
WorldSync, Inc. “So, we added the logging capability for viewed data
straight away. With this addition, we’re more confident that fmDataGuard
practically meets the technological audit trail regulatory requirements on
its own, while simultaneously making it easier to recover from a crash or
from errors caused by users.”

“HIPAA encompases a lot of requirements and fmDataGuard solves the audit
trail requirements of HIPAA really well,” explained Rich Carlton, senior
engineer and CEO, R.C. Consulting, Inc. “fmDataGuard addresses audit trail
issues in a smooth and seamless way, and in a fairly automatic fashion for
the developer. That leaves the developer open to focus on the remaining
HIPAA compliance requirements related to security, reporting, backup
strategies, and the like. fmDataGuard easily cuts the time required to
address HIPAA in half.”

fmDataGuard provides complete audit trail capture, with no scripting,
layout modifications, or custom development required. fmDataGuard can
capture all Add, View, 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, with an optional fourth
step to capture Viewed records.
