NetApp Certifies Docuware 5.1 for NetApp® SnapLock® Software

Sunnyvale, Calif. - July 24, 2007 -- Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP), a leading provider of storage and data management solutions, today announced NetApp SnapLock compliance software is certified to work with DocuWare 5.1 document management system software. DocuWare 5.1 software helps customers meet audit and compliance requirements. DocuWare 5.1, coupled with NetApp SnapLock, provides the advantages of secure document management with write-once read-many (WORM) technology. This means customers can securely archive all types of documents from a variety of sources in one central document pool, as well as quickly access and protect that data on disk-based NetApp storage systems.

NetApp SnapLock software delivers high-performance and high-security data permanence on disk-based NetApp storage. An integrated element of NetApp Data ONTAP® software, SnapLock software stores business records in an unalterable format that can be rapidly accessed online for audit, compliance, or eDiscovery requests. The integration of SnapLock in Data ONTAP gives DocuWare customers the power to easily and rapidly enable WORM storage on any NetApp storage appliance and set data retention periods based on corporate and regulatory requirements.

"Retaining and securing data for audit and compliance regulations have become necessary parts of business operations around the world. The ability to secure that data-and find it again in seconds-is critical to protecting information assets, achieving regulatory compliance, and meeting eDiscovery requests," said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing at NetApp. "DocuWare eases the task of pooling and managing all document types. This certification means customers will benefit from saving time, administration, and infrastructure expenses-with the confidence that their data is tamper-proof."
