RackTop Launches New Features in Latest Release to Facilitate Hybrid Cloud Security and Data Protection

Hubrid cloud security and data protection

RackTop Systems, the pioneer of CyberConverged data security and leader in secure network attached storage technology, today announced the general availability of key features in the BrickStor Security Platform (SP) to facilitate data security and protection for distributed workforces and hybrid clouds. In this unprecedented time, organizations must quickly adapt existing enterprise architectures while adopting work from home models, and in the haste caused by the situation are sacrificing data security and compliance. As cybercrime steadily increases, and overwhelming distractions from the global pandemic bog down IT infrastructure and operations personnel, it’s more important than ever to modernize to a Zero Trust rooted converged storage platform. BrickStor SP is ideal for customers who need to securely protect unstructured data, both on-premises and in the cloud, without the complexity or security vulnerabilities inherent to integrating existing legacy storage systems with loosely coupled third-party tools.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has forced every organization worldwide to change the way they conduct business. This has become a pivotal opportunity for companies to select technologies that enhance their security posture while enabling and accelerating business operations. We are seeing our customers quickly adopt these capabilities and improving distributed collaboration. As a result, our customers are less vulnerable to the ransomware and data theft that brings down their competition,” said Jonathan Halstuch, CTO for RackTop Systems.
