Compressing, encrypting, converting.
FLAM was originally developed in order to facilitate communications between different mainframe systems. But as FLAM was becoming standard – e.g. with payment transactions or clearing of connection log and billing record data with mobile communications providers – the requirements as to convertibility and compatibility grew, so that eventually FLAM was available for 60 different platforms. Meanwhile, the heterogeneity of physical platforms has shifted - to a diversity of data formats, like those used in XML files. FLAM is in fact the most effective means for mediating between these formats while – of course – meeting all security standards (such as AES encryption or PCI DSS). An extension, FKME, enables FLAM to link to any encryption method preferred by the user and combine with any key management (PKI/SKI) and apply techniques offered by the respective system manufacturer for the specific platform. Matching SW-emulations are also available. All this also works within a network and is essntially fit for gradual parallelization in order to speed up processes.
Therefore, FLAM stands for
- an efficient data compression that takes just a fraction of the CPU time needed by other compressors, that minimizes storage consumption, and hence saves costs
- perfect data protection by use of standardized encryption techniques, also as Secure Cloud
- migration and internationalization of stored data between different platforms, different formats, and different character sets
- flexible integration options due to compatibility with all open standards
- a long-term, platform-independent data archival
- unique search functions within encrypted secure archives
