There’s a reason we build our homes with pressure-treated wood. Even behind layers of drywall, insulation, and however many coats of paint we’ve lathered on, the integrity of the structure is defined by its bones. Over time, there’s no doubt that our homes will weather many storms, and while those external layers may help preserve their longevity, they’re simply not enough. All that protection will be for naught if we’ve built our homes with wood that will start to rot and decay as soon as the first bit of moisture creeps in.

This is common sense for most of us. So why don’t we think about our data the same way? And when it comes to ensuring real data protection–not just building thicker walls but achieving true security at the point of data–where do we start? 

We can start by treating our data like what it is: the new security endpoint. To help our customers seamlessly combine enterprise security with real data protection, Rubrik is excited to announce a direct integration with Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR, delivering advanced security orchestration by enabling customers to enrich threat investigations, accelerate ransomware remediation, and automate sensitive data classification.

Just a few years ago, data was labeled as “the new oil.” Yet despite data being an organization’s most valuable asset, most enterprises neglect to consider the importance of protecting their data from the inside out. They expend energy and resources on building bigger barriers and thicker walls, working tirelessly to defend against external threats and keep the bad guys out–but despite preventative measures, they’re still getting in. As a matter of fact, the total number of global ransomware reports increased more than 715% from mid-2019 to mid-2020 according to Bitdefender’s 2020 Mid-Year Threat Landscape Report.

With the latest integration between Rubrik and Cortex XSOAR, customers can move beyond speculating if they’ll be hit with ransomware and move into a state of confident preparation, knowing that when an attack happens they will be able to quickly and confidently recover. 

By integrating Rubrik’s immutable architecture, ransomware remediation solution, and sensitive data classification offerings into Cortex XSOAR's automated playbook, customers can achieve an end-to-end security workflow across their IT environment.
