Rubrik Named a Leader in the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions

Rubrik was built on a foundational goal of helping the world’s largest enterprises untap new value from their backup data, an act we’ve coined data leverage. Data leverage is about activating your data exponentially through rich metadata to out-innovate competition. As Gartner puts it, “The move toward public cloud, heightened concerns over ransomware, and complexities associated with backup and data management are forcing I&O leaders to rearchitect their backup infrastructure and explore alternative solutions.”  We’re honored to announce that Rubrik has been named a “Leader” in the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions. We have been positioned furthest in completeness in vision–a recognition that we believe demonstrates not only our global team’s ability to come up with radical ideas, but quickly bring these innovations to market with precision and excellence. From our perspective, this accomplishment builds upon our successes and developments introduced over the last year. Here’s a rundown of our latest advancements: Enhanced Performance, Flexibility, and Compliance for Enterprise Environments  Rubrik Andes 5.2, now Generally Available, helps enterprise customers improve performance, facilitate security and compliance, and minimize complexity at massive scale. Enhancements include turbocharged VMware performance with multi-node data streaming (boost backup speed by…
