One Cloud to Rule Them All

Looking at modern IT infrastructures, it is clear we have mostly entered a cloud-first era. Even more traditional enterprises are incorporating a cloud strategy at the risk of being out-innovated or outpaced by their competition. “We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don’t let yourself be lulled into inaction.” — Bill Gates While the public cloud has gained a lot of attention with the rise of Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure, it is important to still ask yourself which “cloud-like” characteristics and services can benefit your particular environment.

For companies that must comply with GDPR, security by design is imperative in data management. The regulation requires companies to use solutions in which data protection is designed into the development rather than added on at a later point. Requirements apply to on-prem and cloud environments, as well as to measurements that prevent employee-caused breaches. Data Management Designed for Protection Rubrik delivers end-to-end encryption across all environments while maintaining performance. It starts at the point of ingesting the data from your production systems. For both virtual and physical environments, we encrypt data in-flight to protect it from eavesdropping. Once the data arrives to the Rubrik cluster, customers can choose the method for encryption at-rest, either using software-based encryption or FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Certified hardware-based encryption. Rubrik also…
