Through the applied adoption of BrickStor SP, our customer could now combine the power of user and entity behavior analysis (UEBA) and security orchestration and automation and response (SOAR) capabilities to efficiently detect and mitigate data threats. The company gained the ability to encrypt its sensitive data files, perform real-time active defense and monitoring, create immutable snapshots enabling agile restoration and recovery, and perform internal audits providing critical visibility into user behavior on a second-by-second basis. In turn, network administrators could effectively identify:
- What data files were accessed
- Who accessed them
- When they were accessed
- Where they were accessed fromWhy they were accessed
“What sold us was having full visibility over every file operation and the ability to run audit-ready reports for compliance,” said the senior systems administrator. “Being able to extract the data, see where it’s going and then get alerts when things were moved or deleted, was critical for us. And then of course the data protection component. Those were the two main factors in our decision.”
BrickStor SP also allowed the healthcare provider to archive cold data files, which enabled administrators to create more storage space on its existing Dell/EMC VNX SAN drives. After the exceptional results of the partnership, the customer plans to expand rollout of BrickStor SP to additional departments.
“The solution is effective and simple to use, and the price point is really great, so why not?” said the senior systems administrator. “RackTop makes it easy to expand on the progress you’ve already made. You don’t need to implement policy changes, purchase new drives, conduct reformatting or anything like that. It layers on top of everything you already have.”
