is a software solution that enables RDX® WORM media to be used as a storage device for regulatory compliance archiving (WORM), where data must not be deleted or overwritten, or for ransomware protection (RansomBlock), which secures backups against virus and ransomware attacks and ensures full recovery in case of infected data and blocked computer systems. Initially, users must decide, whichever functionality should be implemented for a specific media. By utilising multiple media, users can mix WORM, RansomBlock and standard RDX media according to their needs.
The software itself is downloadable for free and provides a 60-day trial of the full functionality* for new and existing RDX media. RDX WORM media include a software license linked to this RDX media and capacity for everlasting usage.
RansomBlock - Giving a peace of mind
The RansomBlock functionality sets all data on the RDX WORM media into a read-only mode. In addition, it allows write operations to RDX media for granted applications and processes similar to a personal FireWall. Therefore, backup applications are able to use RDX WORM media like a regular RDX backup target.
RansomBlock performs a validation check each time a write operation tries to access the RDX media. In case of a virus or ransomware attack or unauthorised access, RansomBlock will deny this operation and protect the data stored on RDX media from being infected.
