RackTop Systems, the pioneer of CyberConverged™ data security, today announced it has been named a winner of four 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. RackTop was recognized in four Cybersecurity Product categories, including: Zero Trust Security, Storage and Archiving, Encryption, and Embedded Security. The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honors products and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. Finalists and winners are selected based on the strength of their nomination as well as the popular vote by members of the Information Security Community.
Historically, cyber security solutions were focused on protecting networks, while data storage systems were not considered vulnerable to security threats. In the modern enterprise, however, the threat of ransomware and advanced persistent threats combined with explosive data growth have created an environment rich for data theft and manipulation.
Today’s enterprise environment is facing a perfect storm of security, compliance, and extensive data growth, and a traditional network based “outside in” approach to implementing security will not be sufficient to protect our most critical data assets and intellectual property. CyberConverged is a pure product application of a zero trust security model – addressing this storm at its core. RackTop’s data first “inside out” approach to implementing security enables enterprises to gain enhanced benefits such as immediately detecting changes in data access behavior, alerting or stopping data attacks in real-time, ensuring created data is authentic, and cryptographically destroying data which is no longer needed.
“Congratulations to RackTop Systems for being recognized as the Gold award winner in the Zero Trust Security and Storage and Archiving categories; Silver award winner of Encryption; and Bronze award winner of Embedded Security of the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 400,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn that jointly produce the awards program. “With over 500 entries in more than 90 award categories, the 2020 awards are highly competitive, and all winners truly reflect the very best in today’s cybersecurity industry.”
