The KOMpliance family of Secure Storage Solutions from KOM Networks redefines how enterprises deploy and protect their valuable digital assets instantly, automatically, and without exacting performance penalties for users or existing applications.

KOMpliance employs patented Hard Disk WORM technology and encryption to meet the most stringent mandates for tamperproof data protection, data authentication and data security in any operating environment using any combination of HDD and SSD iSCSI SAN attached storage.
Its all-inclusive feature set includes a streamlined acquisition and deployment process, automated storage management, comprehensive data security, enterprise-class performance and reliability, and seamless pay-as-you grow expansion.
A New Breed of Data Storage Solutions
KOMpliance is changing the old fashioned concepts of secure data storage. You no longer have to sacrifice performance and accessibility to address security and compliance regulations, or vice versa. In today’s digital world, important data must also be accessible data. Don’t settle for less when you can get everything you need with KOMpliance.

KOMpliance is available in three configurations, all available with our patented WORM technology:

Using the wide range of customizable options, administrators can easily create and implement File Lifecycle Management policies that meet all applicable compliance requirements, and apply them to specific classes of files and even individual files. These intelligent, rules-based policies can also be easily modified whenever needed – with the exception of course that retention periods can never be shortened.

Simple to Install and Easy to Manage…
KOMpliance Virtual Server installs in a single operation on a Virtual Host Machine.
KOMpliance Storage Server is a true, turn-key solution with everything you need to install, deploy and administer a secure storage environment included right out of the box.
KOMpliance SAN Gateway can be out of the box, on the network, and writing to a secure storage volume in under 30 minutes.
KOMpliance runs on Windows Storage Server 2012, as well as 2008 R2, and integrates readily into all Active Directory Services, enforcing all group policies and ACLs for painless deployment and streamlined setup.
Compliance Orchestration reduces the administrative overhead associated with data archiving and regulatory compliance such as managing data growth, implementing an ILM strategy or establishing a disaster recovery plan – saving you time and money. This lets IT immediately get back to business without any time-consuming training and babysitting setup.
Get the most out of your storage resources…
Virtual Server lets you take full advantage of the many operational and cost benefits provided by Virtual Environments, including no up-front hardware expenses. Simply install on a VM host.
If you own a SAN, adding a KOMpliance Gateway lets you leverage its full benefits, flexibility and capabilities. You can scale and grow on demand by simply extending your KOMpliance capacity license.
Both the Virtual Server and SAN Gateway versions adhere to strict compliance and data retention regulations and rules with the security of WORM tamperproof storage
We are lowering the barriers and making it easy to protect your data with the storage you already own. Whether it is simple secure archive or complex retention, KOMpliance makes it possible with a few clicks in a familiar Windows setting!
New Rules… KOMpliance is a game changer
Creating a secure volume doesn’t require you to purchase additional storage from KOM; just repurpose your existing storage resources. In most cases KOMpliance can replace existing iSCSI SAN gateway file servers to support both secure and non-secure volumes and share them out to the network.
