ShadowServerTM Your Server’s First Line of
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - August 25, 2004 – ShadowStor Inc., a
provider of innovative and non-intrusive security, data
protection, and disaster prevention solutions for PCs and
servers, announced the immediate availability of ShadowServer.
ShadowServer provides non-restrictive, easy to use server
protection for Windows NT, 2000 and 2003 servers. ShadowServer
is the best way to prevent malicious, intrusive or unwanted
changes from being made to a server.
ShadowServer is your first line of defense for application
servers recovering from website defacing, viruses, worms, or
any other malicious or unwanted server changes. Avoid server
downtime that’s required to re-install the operating system,
restore from an image or recover from a tape backup. At
anytime, authorized users can save changes to the system, save
selected files and folders or simply discard all changes and
return the server to its original state. Server recovery takes
as long as a simple reboot.
ShadowStor uses a unique method called
ShadowMode to ensure servers and PCs are protected. By placing
servers in ShadowMode with ShadowServer, IT organizations can
feel confident systems are going to be protected no matter
what happens. ShadowMode tracks each system change and
redirects them to the managed free space on the disk. These
system changes can be permanently saved to disk, or completely
discarded. With ShadowMode, there is no need to specify
regions on disk for backup or use BIOS functions to reserve
space for OS images. ShadowMode is the most efficient and
intelligent way to protect servers and PCs from system
downtime. ShadowServer helps:
