Fulton, MD – August 19, 2020  – RackTop Systems, the pioneer of CyberConverged data security  and leader in secure network attached storage technology, today announced the general availability of key features  in the BrickStor Security Platform (SP)  to facilitate data security and protection for distributed workforces and hybrid clouds. In this unprecedented time, organizations  must quickly  adapt existing enterprise architectures  while  adopting  work from home models, and  in  the haste  caused by  the situation  are  sacrificing  data  security and compliance. As cybercrime steadily increases, and overwhelming distractions from the global pandemic bog down IT infrastructure and operations personnel, it’s  more important than ever to  modernize to  a  Zero Trust rooted converged storage platform.  BrickStor  SP is ideal  for customers who  need to securely protect  unstructured  data, both on premises and in the cloud, without the complexity or security vulnerabilities  inherent to integrating  existing legacy storage systems with loosely coupled third-party tools.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has forced  every organization worldwide to change  the way they conduct business.  This has become  a  pivotal  opportunity for companies to select technologies that enhance their security posture while  enabling  and accelerating business operations.  We are seeing our customers quickly adopt these capabilities and  improving  distributed collaboration.  As a result,  our customers  are less vulnerable to the ransomware and data theft that brings down their competition,” said Jonathan Halstuch, CTO for  RackTop  Systems.

Transparent Data Movement (TDM),  Data Protection services, and  SecureGFS  web sharing and collaboration  are  three  features  delivered in the latest  BrickStor SP release  which facilitate  managing  the challenges of on-prem, off-prem, and work from home without  duplicating data or compromising security and compliance.

Benefits include:

  • Always-on encryption for remote data
  • No access to the encryption keys by third party systems
  • Transparently move data in and out of S3
  • Elimination of  data loss due to  exposed S3 buckets
  • WAN optimized transport for high-speed, high latency links
  • Share data via audited secure links without copying to third  party services

The  BrickStor  SP data storage platform was built by Department of Defense veterans to enable enterprise and government customers to effortlessly address rapidly changing data needs both on premises and in the cloud without sacrificing speed, compliance, or security.  Flexible  software  deployment options include  RackTop provided  turn-key systems, virtual appliance,  existing SAN,  in the cloud, and on  Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).

These features are available  today  in BrickStor SP release 22.
