Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, and KOM Networks, a leading provider of secure storage management solutions for compliant data protection and retention, announced today a technology alliance partnership that will combine Attunity Managed File Transfer (MFT) and KOM Network's KOMpliance™. Integration of the two award-winning solutions will provide fully-managed file transfer capabilities and comprehensive archive storage. The combined solution is designed to enable seamless and secure data management for organizations with strict compliance and regulatory requirements.
Enterprise applications, automated processes and growing digital commerce create ever-increasing numbers of files including emails, records, financial transactions and images. Compliance rules and regulations increase the amount of data that must be retained while adding layer upon layer of complexity in data management. The costs of meeting these regulations, including data storage, protection, retention, and controlled information access can severely tax a company's IT and business resources. Attunity and KOM Networks have joined forces to alleviate these burdens with an integrated transfer and universal WORM storage repository using any hard disk or solid state drive infrastructure.
Designed to seamlessly move files from external networks and internal environments in a controlled, audited manner, Attunity MFT provides an extensive portfolio of policy-based inspection, scanning and routing capabilities. Combined with KOM Network's KOMpliance, an enterprise-level, regulatory-compliant, networked storage appliance, the result is a complete solution that will enable companies to easily transfer, retain, protect and access their data in one platform, and empower them to meet regulatory and corporate compliance requirements efficiently and affordably.
"KOM Networks and Attunity are like-minded. We fully recognize the compliance and IT challenges that exist and intend to address them head-on with this technology alliance," said
Kamel Shaath, CTO at KOM Networks
. "Combining our proven vendor-neutral tamperproof storage solutions with Attunity's file transfer technology enables us to ensure that critical data is fully archived, audited and protected 100% of the time - starting with the transfer process and remaining so through retention and final disposition. This enables enterprises and small to medium businesses to meet their most stringent regulatory and corporate requirements. Customers will also appreciate the out-of-the-box functionality and easy implementation our joint solution will offer."
"Security, automation and archiving are major concerns for our respective customers," said
Garrick Herrmann, VP Sales at Attunity
. "In addition to traditional file transfer needs, customers continue to express a need to use Attunity MFT as a gateway to archiving. By integrating our technology with KOM Networks', we are addressing these needs so that organizations will now be able to tap into multiple file sources with Attunity MFT and then push data packages into KOMpliance™ in a single, fully-managed effort. We look forward to helping our joint customers streamline their secure archiving initiatives."
