RackTop Systems Named a 2020 Gold Winner for Encryption in Security Today’s The Govies Government Security Awards
RackTop Systems, the pioneer of CyberConverged™ data security, has been named a 2020 winner of The Govies Government Security Awards from Security Today magazine. RackTop’s CyberConverged™ Security Platform, BrickStor, was a winner in the Encryption category.
Founded by veterans of the U.S. Intelligence Community, 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. BrickStor is a high-performance Network-Attached Storage (NAS) data security platform for unstructured data. A unique cyber defense solution, it embeds security, compliance, and encryption features to empower both government and commercial organizations by protecting data where it resides without the cost, complexity, and security vulnerabilities of traditional bolt-on software solutions.
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.
BrickStor’s encryption and key management features are implemented in a way that is transparent to the user during daily activities. BrickStor employs FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography and automatically protects data with multiple layers of encryption for data at rest and in flight without affecting the user experience or application performance.
