RackTop Systems is the pioneer of CyberConverged™ data security, a new market that fuses data storage with advanced security and compliance into a single platform. Engineered by U.S. Intelligence Community veterans RackTop’s BrickStor Security Platform is architected following a Zero Trust security model that protects data from ransomware, detects insider threats, and facilitates meeting complex data privacy and regulatory compliance requirements. BrickStor SP is a zero-impact, drop-in replacement for existing network attached storage (NAS) systems, which eliminates the cost, complexity, and added vulnerabilities of bolting on disparate security suites to legacy storage. The security platform also features an embedded transparent data mover, which can leverage third party cloud systems to tier archive data without sacrificing security or impacting customer experience. Headquartered in Fulton, Md., RackTop was founded in 2010 by cyber experts who have been solving the most complex data and security problems for more than two decades. RackTop’s technology has been deployed at numerous organizations in a variety of industries worldwide, including government/DoD/public sector, media/advertising and entertainment, financial services, health care, higher education and life sciences.
