EU-GDPR? PoINT Storage Manager 6.1! New Release.

Siegen, Germany, 2017-Dec-12 — /EPR Network/ — Businesses that are not yet ready for the EU’s new general data protection regulations can now relax: version 6.1 of the PoINT Storage Manager is here and will help you to implement the regulations coming into force on May 25 2018.

In line with the upcoming regulations, companies holding European citizens’ personal data must delete such data on request. PoINT Storage Manager 6.1 enables not just logical but also physical deletion. “This makes it possible to delete files in a targeted manner where required. On the other hand, if the files need to be kept, they must be suitably protected. PoINT’s software offers this protection via retention management and WORM functionality, fulfilling compliance requirements and preventing unintended changes or manipulation,” said Thomas Thalmann, CEO of PoINT Software & Systems GmbH.

The functionality of the PoINT Storage Manager helps businesses not just meet data protection regulations but also optimize their use of storage.
As well as the functions named above, version 6.1 also supports a wider range of storage systems, which now includes SUSE Enterprise Storage, IBM COS and Sony ODA. For more information, visit
