Rubrik has announced Rubrik Security Cloud, designed to secure customers' data wherever it lives - be that within the enterprise, in the cloud, or SaaS.

According to the company, the next frontier in cybersecurity pairs the investments in infrastructure security with data security giving companies security from the point of data.

The Rubrik Security Cloud delivers three 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.

As organisations continue to struggle with cyberattacks that compromise data, Rubrik also launched the Data Security Command Center to assess whether data is safe and capable of being recovered from a cyber attack. Now, customers can see which data is at risk and get recommendations to make their data more secure, the company states.

Rubrik CEO and co-founder Bipul Sinha says, "“Every company in the world is vulnerable as cybercriminals get more savvy every day.

"With Rubrik Security Cloud, we are strengthening customers' defences so they can secure their business across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS workloads. Our data security platform enables our customers to defend their data, recover quickly and prevail in this new cyber landscape.

As part of Data Observability, Sensitive Data Discovery for Microsoft 365 discovers and classifies sensitive data within Microsoft 365 to better assess risk and help maintain compliance with regulations, the company states. These latest integrations build on the joint collaboration between Rubrik and Microsoft.

Last year, Rubrik Cloud Vault built on Microsoft Azure was launched to help customers better defend against cyber attacks using a fully managed, secure and isolated cloud vault service.

Since launch, Rubrik states the company has seen strong demand for Rubrik Cloud Vault across key industries including Healthcare and Life Sciences, Manufacturing, State and Local Government, and Financial Services as customers build Zero Trust solutions to defend against and recover from ransomware.

Microsoft Azure vice president Jurgen Willis says, “Businesses need a data resiliency strategy to keep their data secure in the face of escalating cyber threats.

“Rubrik's Security Cloud, which builds on integrations with Rubrik Cloud Vault and Microsoft Azure, will help customers accelerate their Zero Trust journey.
