RackTop Systems Collaborates with Seagate to Provide a Turnkey Solution for Active Defense Against Ransomware and Insider Threats

The Turnkey Secure NAS Solution Will Deliver Active Defense Capabilities to Defend and Protect Unstructured Data from the Next Generation of Cyber Attacks

FULTON, MARYLAND, December 7, 2022 – RackTop Systems, a leading provider of cyberstorage solutions which actively defend against ransomware and insider threats, today announced a collaboration with Seagate Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage and infrastructure solutions that combines RackTop’s revolutionary BrickStor Security Platform with Seagate’s enterprise storage systems and drives.

The RackTop cyber resilient solution uses active defense capabilities to isolate and contain an attack by blocking the offending clients from accessing further data while allowing legitimate users to operate as usual. A fully integrated incident workflow engine incorporates user behavior analytics to pinpoint affected files and instantly report them to administrators, security operations centers, and third-party applications. Paired with always-on immutable data protection, incidents are intelligently assessed to enable one-click automatic selecting of the appropriate files to remediate and recover, optimizing an organization’s ability to return to service quickly.

“Seagate’s enterprise storage systems with Seagate FIPS compliant disk drives combined with RackTop’s BrickStor cyberstorage software creates a scalable Network Attached Storage appliance with unrivaled data security and performance,” says Jonathan Halstuch, Chief Technology Officer at RackTop Systems. “The combined solution provides end-to-end FIPS encryption and key management for data at rest and in flight. Any organization can leverage the solution for immediate protection against ransomware and data theft at an economical price point.”

“Seagate is excited to collaborate with RackTop Systems by providing enterprise storage systems and Lyve Cloud services to enable its innovative BrickStor SP cyberstorage platform.  Seagate’s unique Exos CORVAULT systems provide high capacity, data protection and self-healing features with direct attach SAS connections while the Exos X SAN arrays provide the same features for SAN environments,” said Erik Salo, VP Products and Markets for Seagate.  “Seagate enterprise storage systems enable RackTop customers to benefit from Seagate’s storage system and disk drive innovations while using the highest capacity HDDs to meet the reliability, capacity and cost requirements of enterprise customers.”
