Write once read many (WORM) is a data integrity and write protection functionality that is applied onto storage devices to prevent modification of information once data has been written. This is a feature that assures that information or data cannot be altered once is written and stored on a storage device. This feature and its capabilities greatly utilized for regulatory or corporate compliance in many industries where long-term retention or archival is mandated by government or corporate regulations or compliance rules. The long-term data retention periods can be in the range of days to multiple years.
