Transforming Company Culture: Rubrik Named to 2019 LinkedIn Top Companies List

Last week, LinkedIn announced its 2019 LinkedIn Top Companies List, which honors the 50 most sought-after companies in the U.S. The list is derived from a blended score that looks at factors such as engagement with employees, job interest, and retention and is based on the billions of actions from the LinkedIn community. We’re honored to be included on this year’s list alongside many other innovative companies. Rubrik has experienced an unprecedented amount of growth in recent years.

Introducing Rubrik Go: Subscribe to Simplicity

Today, we’re thrilled to announce Rubrik Go, a new evergreen subscription purchasing program designed to help customers easily modernize their data centers. The program applies a SaaS approach and empowers customers to enjoy future innovation through one simple and predictable subscription license. With Rubrik Go, customers can easily access the latest data management technology through free evergreen refreshes, streamlined software editions, and the flexibility to migrate data to the public cloud at any time with no additional costs. A trend we’ve seen among our customers is that as they try to modernize their data centers or migrate to the cloud, many are held back by the lack of flexibility with traditional licensing. This traditional on-premises model typically results in higher capital expenditures, a challenge for companies restricted by annual budgets and the inability to commit to large upfront costs. On top of that, many customers are tired of trying to access the latest technology without battling price hikes, lengthy contract negotiations, and unpredictable renewals. For example, if customers wish to migrate data to the cloud, they often have to repurchase their on-premises license. Rubrik Go is designed to solve these challenges easily. To enable agile infrastructures, Rubrik Go offers a…
Rubrik -  - Incident Response

Incident Response

We would like to make you aware of an issue regarding customer support data. A sandbox customer support & success development environment containing a subset of our customer corporate contact information and support interaction data was inadvertently left accessible for a brief period of time. We investigated and rectified the issue immediately. We have confirmed that no customer-owned data was exposed. Impact This sandbox environment was being used to develop a new solution for customer experience. The sandbox data repository contained customer names, business contact information, support requests, in addition to customer support conversations. Again, we have confirmed that no customer-owned data was exposed. Root Cause Our investigation traced the cause to a developer error. The sandbox development data repository defaulted to a lower access security level and we failed to follow our standard security procedure to appropriately set the access control. To prevent this from happening again, we are rolling out stricter processes such as multiple levels of approvals and security reviews throughout the organization. We apologize for this incident. We are very serious about safeguarding customer information, and this is clearly unacceptable to us. We are continuing to review the situation to improve our processes. We will update this blog…

Drinking Our Own Champagne: Introducing Rubrik on Rubrik

Now, more than ever, IT is transforming from a supportive tool or insurance policy into a strategic business imperative. As someone who has been in the industry for over 20 years, it’s clear to me that we’re at a tipping point at which enterprises must quickly adapt their technologies to drive competitive edge and unlock new business value. I joined Rubrik as CIO last year to build an IT organization that enables the business processes, employee experience, and infrastructure needed to support the company’s unprecedented growth–while also delivering deep business intelligence and keeping us secure. Previously, I led Business Applications at VMware, where I drove IT transformation across people, process, and technology areas to achieve nimble and agile delivery. In other words, I’ve experienced firsthand the unprecedented speed at which data is growing and the challenge of massive data proliferation as we enter the cloud era. Today, CIOs need infrastructure flexibility and a comprehensive platform to manage all of their data, no matter where it resides. Rubrik was designed to address these challenges and has redefined the data protection industry, shifting the perception of what’s possible. That’s why we’re excited to share Rubrik on Rubrik. Using Rubrik to automate, manage,…

We also recently achieved the coveted AWS Storage Competency designation, which validates our approach and commitment to a deeper integration with AWS services. It’s been rewarding seeing our joint customers solve their biggest challenges with our growing portfolio of cloud services for AWS.

Rubrik is honored to have Radar, its newest Polaris application, receive two Best of VMworld 2018 U.S. awards: the Gold Award for Security and Best of Show.

Introducing Rubrik’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program

At Rubrik, we’re committed to building a culture that empowers employees both in the workplace and beyond. We saw firsthand the benefits of giving back last year at VMworld, where we raised $15,000 for the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation. It was clear that this cause had a significant impact on employee morale and the community, and it inspired us to find a way to build philanthropy into our core values. Today, we’re excited to launch Rubrik Beyond Work (RBW), our official Corporate Social Responsibility Program. As part of this program, Rubrik will devote 1% of employee time annually to giving back. The goal is to extend our core business values to communities in need and enact positive, lasting change. Guided by Rubrik’s company values–Relentlessness, Integrity, Velocity, Excellence, and Transparency (RIVET)–we pledge to invest our people, time, and resources in activities that benefit society at large. These are the foundational goals of RBW: Make giving back a priority. Amidst our rapid growth, we are reinforcing a spirit of engagement and empathy into our institutional framework. Do our life’s best work. Rubrik is young, but we move quickly and with purpose. To fully live up to our value of “excellence,” we must…
