Every day more than 2 billion documents and emails are added to Microsoft 365, making this critical data a priority target for ransomware and other cyber attacks. After all, 61% of attacks affect SaaS applications, the most targeted platform / environment. This data can also often be unstructured, and rapidly processing and managing the content at enterprise scale is critical when it comes to both applying protection and performing restores. That is why Rubrik is proud to be one of Microsoft’s partners to deliver their newly announced Microsoft 365 Backup Storage to our joint customers. 

Rubrik Data Protection for Microsoft 365 Backup Storage

The new integrated solution, called Rubrik Data Protection for Microsoft 365 Backup Storage, will complement our existing Rubrik-hosted Microsoft 365 Data Protection solution focused on security and compliance. This new integrated offering will service the largest enterprises with tens of thousands of users and billions of files with high-speed backup and accelerated restores, all managed from within Rubrik Security Cloud

While Microsoft’s backup solution is limited to data in Microsoft 365, Rubrik extends the Microsoft solution with this integrated offering using Microsoft 365 Backup Storage. The integration can be used alongside Rubrik-hosted Microsoft 365 Data Protection, which brings robust availability across on-premises, hybrid Azure and other SaaS platforms. 

Rubrik Data Protection for Microsoft 365 Backup Storage is differentiated and extends the capabilities of Microsoft’s backup solution in the following ways: 

  • Rapidly restore data in bulk: Help ensure business continuity with bulk restores and fast recovery of Microsoft 365 data en masse using Microsoft APIs to maximize performance

  • Expand recoverability: Backup Entra ID (formerly Azure Active Directory) users and groups by automatically recreating Entra ID objects with Rubrik and recovering data with roles and permissions intact

  • Centralize data management: Automate protection across Microsoft 365 Exchange Online, SharePoint, and OneDrive for Business, alongside Rubrik-hosted protection for Microsoft Teams channel messages, plus other SaaS, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments

“We’re excited for Rubrik to bring the unprecedented backup and recovery speed and scale of Microsoft 365 Backup to our joint customers,” said Jeff Teper, President, Collaboration Apps and Platforms, Microsoft. “For added protection of external data respositories, Rubrik even provides backup for SaaS solutions like Atlassian Jira Cloud, and is helping protect enterprise environments and workloads from Microsoft Azure and other clouds from a single pane of glass.”

Rubrik + Microsoft

Rubrik Data Protection for Microsoft 365 Backup Storage is just one more key milestone in our long-standing collaboration with Microsoft and continued effort to provide cybersecurity solutions to our joint customers. The integration comes on the heels of Rubrik being named 2023 Partner of the Year in the US and UK. 

Rubrik Data Protection for Microsoft 365 Backup Storage will be generally available in the coming months. To learn more, check out our technical deep dive blog and see the integration in action in our new demo also being debuted at Microsoft Ignite.
