Implement the 2018 EU data protection regulation (EU GDPR) with PoINT Storage Manager

From May 25, 2018, businesses holding personal data belonging to European citizens must comply with the new European regulations on data protection (General Data Protection Regulation). Specifically, after this date, businesses must apply a standard methodology for protecting personal information against unauthorized changes or unforeseen loss.
Companies should therefore use a technical solution which meets these new requirements. The PoINT Storage Manager (PSM) does so with features such as WORM functionality, which prevents undesired changes to data. The software also offers protected archiving thanks to integrated AES encryption.

The PSM’s retention management functionality not only helps meet compliance demands (such as retention periods) but also enables wide-ranging file management, including targeted deletion of individual files once the retention period expires.
Personal data is all information which can be assigned to an individual: everything from bank account statements to X-ray images. Companies which fail to comply with the new regulation can expect to be fined.

PoINT Storage Manager against ransomware

In view of the rapidly rising number of ransomware attacks in the world we recommend archiving data using PoINT Storage Manager. In case of an attack, users can immediately access archived files without first having to import backups. Alternative storage systems such as cloud/object storage, tape or optical storage media can be used for additional archiving protection. These technologies provide effective protection against ransomware infections, as their integration with PoINT Storage Manager prevents direct file system access, “hiding” these media from ransomware.
