The threats to sensitive data are on the rise and traditional approaches are no longer enough. Operating in contested areas creates added risk for data loss and exposure. Crystal Group has partnered with RackTop, the pioneers of CyberConverged data security, to create a rugged solution that will satisfy the latest data protection requirements without sacrificing performance. This solution is a full-featured, software defined NAS (SMB, NFS, iSCSI) with key management and two layers of FIPS AES-256 encryption for data-at-rest and in-motion. The design enables rapid data sanitization even in cases when the system is not powered on. The system is ready to be CSfC certified.
