Zero Trust data security company Rubrik has announced the launch of Rubrik Cloud Vault, a fully-managed, secure, and isolated cloud archival service that helps customers secure their data within minutes and defend against cyber attacks.

The new SaaS offering, built-on Microsoft Azure, reduces the risk that data is modified, deleted, or encrypted, and is logically air-gapped from customers' production environments for enhanced security against ransomware attacks.

Additionally, Rubrik Cloud Vault enables customers to survive cyber attacks and avoid ransom payments by maintaining both immutable and instantly recoverable copies of the most-critical data in a secured and isolated cloud location fully-managed by Rubrik.

“Ransomware attacks pose an increased danger to every business around the world, regardless of industry,” says Dan Rogers, president of Rubrik.

“This is a key milestone in our commitment to integrate Rubrik Data Security capabilities with Microsoft to deliver Zero Trust Data Security to global enterprise customers," he says.

According to Rubrik, with Rubrik Cloud Vault, organisations benefit from Rubrik Zero Trust Security enhanced with the highly available, durable, secure and scalable Azure platform.

Rubrik Cloud Vault's architecture and integration with Microsoft Azure simplifies air-gapping of critical data, end to end data immutability to ensure data is never compromised, corrupted, or maliciously deleted, strong encryption so data remains private, with multi-factor authentication and role-based controls so only authorised users ever get access to sensitive business data, the company says.

“Enterprise customers are looking for comprehensive and multi-layered data protection to be cyber-resilient.” says Jurgen Willis, vice president, Azure Storage Engineering.

“Rubrik Cloud Vault combines Rubrik's Zero Trust Security with fundamental security and reliability features of Azure Blob Storage to provide customers with a valuable solution for addressing ransomware threats, as well as a secure platform to protect, and deliver accelerated recovery to their most important digital assets," he says.

Kyle Rosa, IT Director at University City Housing, says of the offering, "In the face of increasingly rising ransomware attacks, we must stay proactive and ensure we have the right solutions and technology partners in our corner.

“Rubrik Cloud Vault, along with Microsoft, is addressing these ransomware concerns, providing critical data security in a time when businesses need it more than ever," he says.

Rubrik Cloud Vault will be generally available globally in the coming months on the Azure Marketplace.

Meanwhile, Rubrik has also released new enhancements to its cyber resilience solutions, designed to better equip its customers in the fight against ransomware.

Enhancements include protection for Azure SQL with Fully-Managed SaaS Support. Expanded Rubrik coverage in Azure cloud ensures Azure SQL can be secured alongside other cloud and on-prem workloads for unified visibility and streamlined policy management.
