VolumeProtector retains data in a tamper-proof and protected state for a defined retention period. This capability provides more functionality than simple WORM for compliance or other purposes.

VolumeProtector provides the following functions:
Protect a volume
Make a volume read-only or not accessible for a predefined period of time.
Adjust the protection level and retention
The flexibility of adjustments to the volume protection is defined when the volume is protected. According the defined flexibility policy, adjustments that may be allowed are: releasing protection early, changing the volume to read-only or not accessible, changing the retention period, extending the retention period, and making the flexibility policy more strict (i.e. less flexible).
