fmDataGuard 1.0 is a new product for FileMaker Pro solutions that allows adherence to regulatory standards, logs all data changes and allows for instant data rollback or quick recovery from a crash or corruption. The tool works with FileMaker Pro 8.5 and FileMaker Server 8.0v4, providing a complete audit trail capture. It captures all Add, Change and Delete actions to a separate table, keeping a field-level change history. fmDataGuard uses the logged changes to empower administrators to roll back data in a single button click. Similarly, administrators can roll forward using log data to reconcile the last known good backup with the current state of the database since that backup, hence updating the backup, all in one button click." fmDataGuard is available immediately directly and is priced at US$1250 for a site license.
The fmDataGuard log meets the audit log requirements for regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, and European Union Privacy (Basel II) and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). The developer says "fmDataGuard makes it easy to recover from a crash or corruption, and to revert undesired data modifications.
