RackTop Systems, Inc. announced the availability of its secure encryption service with support for external cryptographic key management powered by Fornetix LLC's Key Orchestration.

The enhancement enables organizations to meet data-at-rest encryption requirements while providing effortless, unified management of encryption keys. The company's encryption service maintains high level of protection by eliminating any human interaction or knowledge of keys, pins, or passwords.

"The RackTop team has deep cyber security roots, and this offering is a foundational component to securing data within the enterprise. We partnered with Fornetix on this solution not only because they have a great product, but also because they, too, were born from the cyber community," said Eric Bednash, CEO, RackTop. "Our joint understanding of data security not only provides customers with a great solution, but also the peace of mind of knowing the people behind the company have been solving the biggest cyber data problems for a long time."

This recent addition further strengthens company's position in providing a high-performance data management and storage platform for security and compliance. Firm's BrickStor storage OS combined with its myRack data management platform enables data security and compliance for unstructured files, VMs, and databases. Extending the platform to integrate with Fornetix' FIPS 140-2 Level 2-compliant Key Orchestration provides an advanced level of data security forg NAS systems.

Chuck White, CTO, Fornetix, stated: "RackTop has been a fantastic partner in delivering the promise and value of Key Orchestration to customers. The platform brings the full capability of standards-based security to customers through protection, scalability, and extensibility in an easy-to-field solution. With our partnership, we deliver a cornerstone of adaptive Cyber Defense that aligns policy with the encryption key lifecycle, protecting the information we hold valuable to individuals and organizations alike."

Fornetix Key Orchestration is available as a feature of the BrickStor E-Series line of appliances, and will be available in the future as part of the myRack subscription based software^defined storage platform when running on certified hardware.
