WORMdisk permanently secures data from unauthorized or accidental deletion or modification because protected data cannot be edited, changed, deleted, modified or re-formatted. It is our flagship anti-ransomware solution and is recognized as such by the NIST NCCoE SP 1800-11 & 1800-25 Data Integrity Projects for Protecting and Recovering from Ransomware and Other Destructive Events.
WORMdisk protects portions of or entire disk volumes. It provides immediate and irreversible locking of data as it is written. Data can only be read/written by authorized persons, devices, and processes.
WORMdisk has two configuration options during operation.
- Temporary Lock ensure data is locked upon write but can be unlocked and modified with special authorizations. New data can be incrementally written to disk and subsequently locked.
- Permanent Lock ensures data is written to disk and subsequently permanently locked at some point in time. Once locked the disk volume is permanently locked and no new data can be written to it.
WORMdisk has been deployed in the US Department of Justice and Department of Energy. It is an exceptional protection solution for industrial control systems, robotics, building control systems and audit log applications. They are also used by major stock exchanges and other financial institutions for FINRA and SEC 17(a) compliance.
WORMdisk is on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) CDM program and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Approved Products List (APL).
Common uses are for protecting private data such as medical, tax, evidentiary, or intellectual property records.
