Securing Classified Data With Rubrik and Zscaler

As organizations increasingly fall victim to data breaches and cyberattacks, Rubrik and Zscaler have partnered to launch a double extortion solution integrating Rubrik Security Cloud with Zscaler’s Index Tool to enhance data loss prevention efforts. The joint solution provides an automated process for identifying which data sets contain sensitive content and where they are located within an organization’s distributed environment, improving data protection for critical information. Rubrik’s integration with Zscaler adds that extra layer of protection to confidential and high-value information, making it less likely for cyberattacks to result in losses from hacking incidents.

If You Build It….

At Cloud Field Day earlier this year, Al Rasheed got to hear from Rubrik. The company is no stranger to Field Day events, and this time they used their presentation to discuss Rubrik Build. This is a site dedicated to user education as well as for hosting events to build and bring a community together. With section dedicated to Software Development Kits, Tooling Integrations, and Use Cases, Al found it a really valuable resource. He appreciated that this wasn’t something tied to sales, but instead meant to make their customers more productive.

Make No Mistake, Rubrik Is a Software Company

For Ken Nalbone, Rubrik’s latest Cloud Field Day appearance was all about the software. Whether it’s a deep dive into their Polaris platform or Build, their new open source community, Rubrik is committed to creating a great software product and enabling customers to enable a software focused mindset as well.

Rubrik, Cohesity and the Battle for NoSQL Backup

As always, Chris Evans has a keen insight into the backup market. He recently updated a post about Rubrik’s acquisition of Datos IO to add in some additional perspective on the NoSQL backup market. With Cohesity acquiring Imanis Data, Chris sees this as both companies trying to bridge the gap between traditional backup and data management, something always easier said than done.

Rubrik’s Build Is All About Education

We were fortunate to have Ned Bellavance as a delegate at Cloud Field Day earlier this year. He’s been giving a comprehensive look at many of the presenters, in this piece he looks at Rubrik. This included an architectural overview of their Polaris and Polaris Radar. The conversation then shifted to the Build project at Rubrik, an open source project that’s part of a broader effort to educate sysadmins who have never touched an API before. It took Ned a minute to understand why this was at Cloud Field Day, but the more he thought about it, the more important a piece it seemed.

Heading to Cloud Field Day 5

Chris Porter is at Cloud Field Day this week, a return appearance after being on hand for the event last year. He’s looking forward to hearing what all the presenters have in store, particularly Sysdig and Nginx given his background with containers. Rubrik will be a returning presenter for Chris. He also highlights what he’s interested in from Pure Storage, VMware and Veeam. The Cloud Field Day informational firehose can be intense, but it looks like Chris is up to the challenge again.

Rubrik’s Radar Reveals serious startup scope

Ben Kepes saw Rubrik present at Cloud Field Day 2 back in July of 2017. Here he talks about Rubrik’s newest product, Radar, designed to protect customers against ransomware. Ben has been continuously impressed with Rubrik’s development and expects them to IPO and become a major player in the industry in the near future.

Modern Data Protection Summary

Keith Townsend lays out exactly why data is the most important asset in the enterprise and what products have the essential protection and management features to protect, mobilize, and backup your data. Among the companies and products Keith discusses are Veritas, Rubrik Datos, and Druva who he saw present at Cloud Field Day 3 as well as Commvault who presented at Tech Field Day Exclusive at Commvault Go in 2017.

The Britpop Battle of Rubrik and Cohesity

The rivalries between data protection companies remind Chris Evans of the glory days of 90s Britpop. Instead of Blur and Oasis, for him the rivals of this new vanguard are Rubrik and Cohesity. He sees both as working to centralize data protection to offer it as a service, with the ultimate goal of fending off cloud-based solutions.

Cloudy Explorations at Cloud Field Day 3

Rubrik’s Andrew Miller shares his experience after the company presented at Cloud Field Day. He shares the videos of the presentation, as well as some of the Twitter reactions from the presentation shared by the delegates. Overall Rubrik did a great job showing what they can do for enterprise backup, and just as importantly demonstrated value for organizations.

Rubrik continues their quest to protect the enterprise

Tim Crawford got an update from Rubrik at Cloud Field Day earlier this month. He found the company’s modular API-centric architecture to be a data recovery solution that disrupts the market. At Cloud Field Day, they highlighted their SaaS offerinf for this market, Polaris.

Time to write Chapter 2

Mike Preston got to hear from Rubrik twice at Field Day events, including a very early appearance at Virtualization Day back in 2015. Now he’s going to get a much closer look after accepting a role with the company in their Technical Marketing team. We’re excited to see what’s in store for Mike in this self-proclaimed Chapter 2. Best of luck!

The Three Facets of Backup

At Cloud Field Day last month, Chris Evans got to see three companies showing different facets of how to deliver backup. Veritas, Rubrik, and Druva all have different visions of how organizations should handle data management and protection. Chris takes a look at how some are transforming to handle new workloads, while others are expanding to add new functionality, scale, and scope.

Rubrik – A metadata company in backup company’s clothing

In this piece, Keith Townsend outlines his experience that data protection is often a way for a vendor to get a foothold within a company’s IT strategy. After seeing Rubrik at Cloud Field Day last week, Keith sees them as getting ready to move beyond being a data protection company, with their Polaris platform signaling a move to becoming a metadata company.

Cloud Field Day 3; Day 2 – That One Thing….
