Think You're Compliant? Prove it

This article focuses on the need for companies in the storage management sector to comply with U.S. government regulations. According to Mark Silverman, president and chief executive officer at Bocada, whose BackupReport software reports on the effectiveness of various backup jobs, it is not enough for companies to try to comply, and that such companies need to document that the controls are present, then audit and measure the performance of such controls on a regular basis. When Bocada officials announced it had upgraded BackupReport to version 3.5 in November 2004, the company also highlighted the software's ability to create an auditable track record of one's backup activity. To be sure, BackupReport left an audit trail in prior versions as well, according to Steve Duplessie, founder and senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. According to Barth, the Profiler Rx suite of storage management software is also used for compliance reporting, due to its extensive customizable reporting capability and the audit trail it leaves behind. However, TekTools, which manufactures the Profiler Rx suite, has resisted the notion of bringing to market a compliance version of the suite because the reports customers are using to prove compliance are all slightly different from one another.
