RackTop to bring data storage and security solutions to UK

Ethos has partnered with RackTop Systems, a provider of high-performance Software-Defined Storage embedded with advanced security, encryption and compliance.

The partnership will see Ehtos serve as RackTop’s primary distributor in the United Kingdom (UK), making RackTop’s data management and orchestration solution available to the UK market for the first time.

RackTop’s BrickStor product offers an all-in-one data storage and management platform to protect government data from cyberattacks while meeting regulatory compliance requirements.

The platform enables companies to create shared, distributed storage resources, which it claims reduces cost and complexity, optimises operations and improves security. In RackTop also provides myRack, a platform for enterprises and organisations to manage on-premises and cloud data and storage, forecast future storage utilisation, and review compliance through a dynamic flow-based user interface.

“We are pleased to partner with Ethos to expand into the UK, which we see as a key area of growth, especially at a time when data security and compliance is becoming much more serious,” said Eric Bednash, CEO and co-founder of RackTop Systems. “Our new partnership with Ethos allows UK businesses to solve their most difficult data, compliance and cybersecurity challenges with the comfort of a local trusted resource.”

Headquartered in Fulton, Maryland, RackTop was founded in 2010 by veterans of the U.S. intelligence community. Its technology has been deployed at numerous organisations in a variety of industries worldwide, including government/DoD/public sector, media/advertising and entertainment, financial services, healthcare, higher education and life sciences, among others.

With financial services firms facing exponential data growth , evolving regulation, increased cyber threats, and fluctuating customer demands, RackTop claims to help keep data protected and compliant.

Ethos delivers a range of voice, document, data and technology solutions to over 4,000 customers worldwide. Its technology services division offers scalable solutions for data management, digital asset and content management, enterprise project management, security and cyber.

“This is a very exciting partnership for us and is a key part of our strategic growth plans. It brings considerable innovation and opportunities across the combined business, and allows us to deepen and expand our offering on data security, compliance, workflow and high-performance storage,” said Paul Norris, Ethos founder & group chairman. “It also brings new capabilities to the market to help solve key business issues such as GDPR and MiFID II, which are especially important for our clients in the UK.”
