How to archive highly sensitive patient data securely
Long-term archiving of medical data requires special attention: first, it is highly sensitive and personal patient data. Additionally, medical documents are often subject to very long retention periods. Certain data must be archived securely for up to 30 years, and at the same time it must be easily retrievable at any time.
PoINT Storage Manager meets the high demands on legally compliant archiving of patient data. With Retention Management and WORM protection for archived files, our software ensures that the data is stored securely and unchanged for the specified period. At the same time, users can access the archived data as usual. Learn more about archiving with PoINT Storage Manager here.
PoINT Storage Manager: Highest flexibility for access to archived files
When archiving files, reliability in moving files within a hierarchical storage infrastructure is just as critical as the transparent and flexible access to the archived files. Therefore, PoINT added a new method of access to archived files to its PoINT Storage Manager. In addition to the proven stubs and web-links with browser-based access, the so-called symbolic links now offer a solution which can be used with practically all NAS systems.

ReiseBank AG: Future-proof storage infrastructure with PoINT Storage Manager
By archiving cold data efficiently and automatically with PoINT Storage Manager, ReiseBank AG is noticeably reducing primary storage loads and backup volume. The new storage infrastructure is both future-proof and flexible. "We are especially relaxed about rising data volumes now," says Hans Hohenwarter, head of system operations at ReiseBank AG. "The PoINT Storage Manager has us well equipped for the future and we can counter the rising costs, too."
PoINT celebrates its 25th anniversary
The history of PoINT begins as early as 1985, where the PoINT-team-to-be came together first at Philips’ competence centre for optical storage media, then later at Digital Equipment (DEC) GmbH.
Here, the team were already developing innovative software products for archiving data on optical storage media, making a significant contribution towards the standardisation of optical technology. In 1994, PoINT spun off from Digital Equipment.
From 5 December 1994, it continued under the leadership of its key employees as an independent company, PoINT Software & Systems GmbH. PoINT stands for innovative, stable software; for a focus on our customers; and for reliable service.
Thank you for your loyalty! We look forward to many more years of forward-looking storage products and designs.
