Security 101: What Security Really Means For Data Management

Data security is not a new priority for enterprises. In earlier blog posts, we discussed the rising threat of ransomware and how a next-gen data management solution prevented a ransomware attack. Given the exponential growth of data and increasing trend in data breaches, it is imperatives that businesses apply the highest security standards to all their data. However, the concept of security is often confounded in the context of data management. To clarify the important terms, components, and their implications for data security within enterprise backup and recovery, I sat down with Adam Goldberg, who leads product development for Rubrik’s security solutions. Adam comes from a security background with previous experience at the Department of Defense.Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) FIPS 140-2 is the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) security standard used to accredit cryptographic modules. It is often a requirement for a product to be installed in a location where sensitive data is stored. The FIPS 140-2 standard extends far beyond the federal government. For example, financial and healthcare institutions collect, store, and transfer highly sensitive information that needs to be secured. While FIPS 140-2 features four levels of security, only Level…

Evaluating Rubrik From an End User’s Perspective

Lee Merrill, a Senior Technical Support Engineer at Rubrik, was formerly a customer of Rubrik. In this blog post, Lee shares his experience and what he learned while evaluating Rubrik from an end user’s perspective. How did you hear about Rubrik when you were a customer? I had an excellent experience as a Rubrik customer. We had some pretty significant pain points with backup and had been mainly looking at storage to ease our pain. Disk space was our major issue with backups, so we had to remove backups to keep things going. This was a constant pain and consumed a lot of time. A vendor of ours had heard about “this product” that we should check out. He thought it would solve our backup issues. Afterwards, we had our hands on our first Brik. Describe your experience when installing Rubrik A memory I have with Rubrik is setting it up with Eric. After we ingested one small 50GB VM, I thought we should put our file servers to the test.  Thus, 4-5TB VMs were next. At first, these had a couple issue with ingestion, but some of it was due to us only having 1GB nics. Support and engineering was…

Leadership Lab: Mark Leslie on Building Culture and Transformative Technology

How do transformational leaders build game-changing companies? We bring you the first part of our Leadership Lab series where we ask next-gen executives, investors, and academics to share their perspectives on what they learned and what is driving future innovation. We sat down with Mark Leslie at Nutanix .NEXT, who is an investor in, prior board member of, and current senior advisor to Nutanix. He is the Managing Partner of Leslie Ventures and was the Founding Chairman and CEO of VERITAS Software. What lessons did you learn in building two companies before Veritas? One of the lessons I learned early on was that I used to say, “We are going to ship it on Tuesday no matter what.” This created a war inside the company. We ended up being sorry we shipped it on Tuesday, and I learned that it is all about shipping great products that work well – and you can’t ship them before their time. When you were CEO of Veritas, how did you address the issue of technical debt? We didn’t have that word in our vocabulary when we started. It is great that we have that definition now because we can define the delta between…

Why Your Hospital May be Held Hostage Without Healthy Data Protection

There’s a crisis in healthcare. The crisis we are referring to is not the economic system, but rather cyber threats targeted at hospitals’ data. In February, a cyberattack in Los Angeles left the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center paralyzed without access to electronic records while its hackers held its computer systems captive for a reputedly multi-million dollar ransom. The result – a 40 bitcoin (approximately $17,000) payment and a loss of operations for over a week. This cyberthreat, known as ransomware, is growing and is predicted to increase in 2016. In one week alone, three hospitals were hit by ransomware attacks. How do hospitals protect themselves from ransomware threats? To answer this question, we sat down with David Ramos, who leads the development of Rubrik’s security measures. Ramos has a Ph.D. from Stanford in Computer Science and discovered dozens of security bugs in open source software, including three in OpenSSL for which security advisories were issued. Ramos explains why hospitals are especially vulnerable to these types of attacks, and why data protection and security need to be integrated at the highest standard in a reliable backup solution. Q. What is Ransomware? How is Ransomware different from other cyber threats? A. Ransomware…

Hacking With Briks

On March 30, we hosted our first company hackathon at headquarters. In 24 hours, our team submitted 24 projects, including faster backups, improvements to the UI, and extensions to the Brik. While the submissions showcased the breadth of talent within the engineering realm, we were also proud to host a brewmaster, a juggler, and a team of world change brikers that formed a committee to drive social change in our community. Of course, we cannot forget Hobson, our best buddy Slack chatbot created to answer all of our questions. Hobson, what did you think about the hackathon.” “When you’re enlightened, every word is wisdom.” Well, maybe Hobson’s answers sound more like something Gandalf would say. In the words of our CEO Bipul Sinha,“I’m blown away by Rubrik’s first hackathon. The creativity and velocity of our engineering team is humbling.” Check out a summary of the hackathon results below, and stay tuned for the innovations coming to a data center near you. In the spirit of Hobson, “speak friend and enter.”

Backup Wars: The Dawn of Next-Generation Data Protection

Update: New Backup Wars video out on Episode IV: Star Wars – Backup Wars Edition. Click here! Some of you may have witnessed the epic battle between Batman and Superman last weekend. Well, we leave the interpretation of “epic” to you. Today, we are showing you a battle that is not in theatres. In honor of World Backup Day, we bring back your favorite superhero in data protection, Mr. Awesome Backup, in “Backup Wars.” In the world of backup and recovery, Mr. Awesome Backup ends the drought and restores innovation to defeat Mr. Flakey Backup. Jokes aside, battling the woes of legacy architecture is exhausting. Given the rapid adoption of virtualization and large data growth, organizations struggle to access, retrieve, and recover all this data. Legacy systems implement incremental improvements, but these Band-Aids are not enough when the underlying architecture is broken. You deserve a next-generation solution that provides consistent performance and simplifies management of backup and recovery. This is what Rubrik represents – a new school approach that eliminates traditional backup software by providing a converged data management platform that is intelligent, simple, and fast. Rubrik unifies hardware and software components complete with a state-of-the-art user experience and scale-out…
