Rubrik has announced it has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that have integrated their solutions to defend against increasing cyber threats. 

The nomination resulted from Rubrik unveiling a new integration with Microsoft Sentinel, providing data risk insights that give security operations teams a better view from the inside out to accelerate security investigations for recovery in the event of a cyber attack. 

Rubrik’s participation in MISA and integration with Microsoft Sentinel will help ensure joint Rubrik and Microsoft customers can benefit from future data observability innovations.  

Integrating with Microsoft Sentinel helps security and IT operations to work together by providing both groups with a common view of data risks and threats. This allows users to recover quickly and confidently with malware-free backups to restore critical operations that keep businesses up and running. 

Rubrik complements Microsoft’s perimeter security, cloud security, and threat detection tools with comprehensive data security that safeguards data so it can be readily available for recovery. 

The integration with Microsoft Sentinel automates investigations in the event of an attack by allowing Security and IT Operations to:

  •  Understand the scope and root cause of an attack more quickly and thoroughly
  • Prevent malware reinfection and easily identify the last known malware-free backup to restore
  • Trigger a recovery from Microsoft Sentinel, with pre-built workflows to enable faster remediation efforts

“Rubrik’s mission is to secure the world’s data. Combining our data risk insights with Microsoft’s suite of security services gives Security and IT Ops teams a holistic view so they can achieve business resilience against cyberattacks and operational disruptions,” says Dan Rogers, President, Rubrik. 

“Using Rubrik's unique data observability capabilities to monitor data risks and data recovery capabilities to respond to attacks, we enable customers to secure and recover data, wherever it lives, across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS environments. We are proud to be a part of MISA, as it further validates Rubrik’s pioneering data security capabilities and underscores our ability to help protect our mutual customers’ security environments.”

“We believe that by coming together as a community to innovate, build strategies, and share knowledge, we empower ourselves and our customers as defenders. That’s why MISA is such a vital part of our mission. Together with our partners like Rubrik we can turn obstacles into innovation and embrace today’s challenges as an opportunity to build a better, safer world for all,” says Vasu Jakkal, CVP, Microsoft Security.
