Gartner names Rubrik Leader in 2022 Magic Quadrant

Rubrik has been positioned by Gartner as a Leader in the 2022 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions.

The Zero Trust data security company also achieved the furthest overall position in Completeness of Vision for the third consecutive year.

The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analysed the company's overall Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute.

“Leading vendors have built capabilities to detect ransomware by monitoring behavioural anomalies of protected data and are adding malware detection provided by partnering with security vendors or by developing these capabilities in-house,” the report states.

Rubrik also recently unveiled Security Cloud to secure customers' data, wherever it lives, throughout enterprise, cloud and SaaS.

The offering provides three unique capabilities:

Data Resilience

Safeguards data by providing immutable, logically air-gapped data protection with multi-factor authentication-based access control.

Data Observability

Continuously monitors risks and investigates threats to data, including Ransomware Monitoring and Investigation powered by machine learning to detect data anomalies, encryptions, deletions and modifications; Sensitive Data Monitoring to find and classify the most sensitive data and assess exfiltration risk; and Threat Monitoring and Hunting to identify indicators of compromise and find the last known clean copy of data.

Data Recovery

Quickly contains threats and recovers data, whether it's a file, application data or a mass recovery for the entire organisation. Rubrik's new Threat Containment capability quarantines malware and restricts user access to infected data to support safer recovery.

Rubrik Security Cloud is powered by machine learning to automatically protect data from cyber attacks, continuously monitor data risks and recover data and applications at speed.

Rubrik currently has more than 2,500 employees across 18 countries, supporting its customers in a range of industries globally.

Further, the company has been recognised on the Forbes Cloud 100 list of the world's top private cloud companies for three years in a row: 2019, 2020 and 2021.

It was also recently named a Hot Company in Data Security at the 2022 Global InfoSec Awards.

“Protecting hybrid, SaaS and multicloud environments, preparing for ransomware attacks, and the need to simplify backup and data management are forcing I-O leaders to rearchitect their backup infrastructure and explore other solutions,” Gartner notes.

“Our economy and our digital lives are under attack as ransomware grows in sophistication and frequency every day,” Rubrik CEO and co-founder Bipul Sinha says.

“Data security is now essential for every organisation to ensure their business won't come to a halt when their data is compromised.

“We are on a mission to secure the world's data and deliver business resiliency for every customer.

“With Rubrik, organisations are ready to quickly recover their data and applications, keeping their business running in the face of any type of cyber attack.
