EMC Isilon SmartLock
EMC Isilon SmartLock helps you protect your critical data against accidental, premature, or malicious alteration or deletion. Because SmartLock is a software-based approach to Write Once Read Many (WORM) data protection, you can store SmartLock-protected data alongside other data types in your Isilon scale-out storage environment with no effect on performance or availability, and without the added cost of purchasing and maintaining specialty WORM-capable hardware.
Data Security Options
SmartLock operates in either an Enterprise mode or a Compliance mode. The Compliance mode provides an extra level of protection against malicious modification of data by disabling logins by the root user. This way, you can meet regulatory compliance requirements to provide absolute retention and protection of business critical data—including stringent SEC 17a-4 requirements.
Flexible and Efficient Data Protection
With SmartLock, you can protect your data at the directory level and thereby eliminate the wasted space and complexity of managing WORM protections across multiple devices or volumes. SmartLock also offers you the flexibility to set customized default retention times on a directory-level basis or to set customized retention times for specific files.
