Rubrik has announced a new strategic agreement with Microsoft, which will see the Redmond giant make an equity investment in the Zero Trust data management company.

The collaboration aims to better tackle the increasing ransomware threat and deliver enhanced data protection, as well as develop co-engineering projects to deliver Zero Trust data protection solutions built on Microsoft Azure.

That means customers and partners gain additional data protection, Rubrik says, so that critical Microsoft 365 data is secure and accessible in the event of a cyber attack.

“As the pioneer of Zero Trust Data Management, Rubrik is helping the world’s leading organisations manage their data and recover from ransomware,” commented Bipul Sinha, co-founder and CEO of Rubrik. “Together with Microsoft, we are delivering tightly integrated data protection while accelerating and simplifying our customer’s journey to the cloud.”

This partnership builds on Rubrik and Microsoft’s existing long-standing relationship, which already supports more than 2,000 mutual customers around the world and hundreds of petabytes of data under Azure management.

With this new agreement, mission-critical applications such as SAP, SQL, Oracle, VMware, as well as enterprise NAS workloads, can now tightly integrate protection and automation with Azure.

Rubrik said the move will help customers address these priorities while providing agility to migrate data to the cloud, achieve improved productivity, and optimise resources.

Ultimately, the pair are aiming to help enterprises manage hybrid and multi-cloud data security, as well as defend against escalating ransomware threats.

“Customers, across industries, are migrating to the cloud to drive business transformation and realise growth,” said Nick Parker, corporate vice president of Global Partner Solutions at Microsoft.

“End-to-end application and data management is critical to business success, and we believe that integrating Rubrik's Zero Trust Data Management solutions with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 will make it easy for customers to advance their Zero Trust journey and increase their digital resilience.”
