The cloud’s ability to scale, its flexible economics and its inherent elasticity offers IT a rich foundation for delivering critical services to their organizations.

Determined to take full advantage of the public cloud without taking short cuts, we built a platform that focuses on bringing authentic SaaS to solve the challenges of data protection.

 

Clumio has reimagined enterprise backup and recovery, taking full advantage of the scale, economics, and elasticity of the public cloud to give you a new and game changing backup experience.

Rubrik's Zero Trust Data Management™ protect data and applications from ransomware, natural disasters, and operational failures. Many ransomware attacks target backups. That’s why it’s vital to ensure backups are 100% protected and resilient. With zero trust data management no one is trustworthy. No user. No application. No device. To meet this new standard, data must be natively immutable so that it can never be modified, encrypted, or deleted by ransomware. Data needs to be ready at all times so one can recover what one need, and never pay a ransom.

Rubrik is named in the top 25 of the 2021 Forbes Cloud 100. This year marks the fifth year that Rubrik has placed on the Forbes Cloud 100 list.
