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, CA--(Marketwire - 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 corruption.

"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."
