CYA Technologies: Hot backup and recovery for EMC Documentum and IBM FileNet P8

CYA SmartRecovery Now Available With Records Retention Module for IBM FileNet P8 4.5

FileNet P8 Customers Can Ensure Repository Integrity and Recoverability While Facilitating Compliance With Policies Set in FileNet Records Manager

SHELTON, CT--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - CYA Technologies, an enChoice® company, today announced the availability of CYA SmartRecovery™ version 3.3 for IBM® FileNet® P8 4.5. This release of CYA SmartRecovery™, which enables hot, synchronized backups and granular recovery of ECM system information, is offered with an optional Records Retention Module (RRM). The RRM destroys content and metadata stored within CYA backups in alignment with policies set in FileNet Records Manager.

"The development of the RRM was driven by our customers, who need it to ensure that records are destroyed after retention periods required by corporate, industry, and government policies such as Sarbanes-Oxley have expired," said Mike Fernandes, director of product management and services for CYA. "This release gives P8 4.5 users peace-of-mind that their information assets are fully recoverable in their original states at the object level -- but only for as long as they want them to be after mandated retention periods."

CYA SmartRecovery helps address issues associated with P8 repository corruptions, meeting stringent service levels, and managing shrinking backup windows. CYA's experience with P8 clients has shown that:

--  Existing backup strategies often do not enable the business to meet P8
    uptime requirements;
--  Existing backup strategies can result in repository corruptions if
    backups are performed hot, because content and metadata are not captured in
    a synchronized manner; and
--  Existing backup strategies cannot meet required recovery times for
    information that has been lost or corrupted due to logical failures.

This release enables IBM FileNet P8 4.5 customers to perform hot, synchronized backups and granular recovery of P8 repository information. CYA SmartRecovery's application-aware technology works seamlessly with existing backup technologies to ensure 24x7 data accessibility and integrity, help meet or exceed stringent service level agreements, and safeguard organizations against the ramifications of logical failures by enabling one, several, or thousands of objects to be quickly restored back into the repository in their original state, while P8 stays online.
