Upon deployment, BrickStor SP immediately created a unified layer of defense to safeguard FKEC’s sensitive data archives from threat actors. Notable benefits included active defense against ransomware and insider threats, air gap data protections, tool consolidation, enhanced data security, advanced cyberstorage capacity forecasting, user behavior auditing and analysis, snapshots and file indexing. Furthermore, it was all delivered at an affordable rate to maximize ROI.
BrickStor SP also enabled FKEC to streamline storage compliance for both on demand auditing and predetermined interval reporting. Considering all access records were generated from RackTop’s immutable database, the company could determine in confidence that its compliance reports were entirely accurate to meet federal and state regulations.
When considering the business value of a Cyberstorage solution like BrickStor SP, Fox said “Compared to other products I’ve paid for, I was in disbelief when I saw the price, “RackTop is very up front and honest with you about pricing, which I appreciated because, again, not every company is like that. They’ll show you a great product, tell you why you need it, and then hit you with a bill that makes you wonder ‘How in the world will I ever put this in front of management?’ RackTop didn’t do that.”
With real-time, actionable insights into network user behaviors, FKEC gained the critical foresight to identify potential ransomware threats by knowing:
- What sensitive files were accessed
- Who accessed them
- When they were accessed
- Where they were accessed from
- Why they were accessed
“The user interface, while simplistic in design, makes it easy to use because you’re not digging through a ton of layers to try and find something,” said Fox. “I can not only see what my users are doing, but also what someone posing as a user is doing as well. I can stop an attack right there in the interface. I don’t need to switch between 12 different tools. “While we’re a small cooperative, that doesn’t mean we’re not a ransomware target. We’ll need to be able to respond. I feel more confident that we can with RackTop’s product.”
