Protecting Encrypted Amazon EBS Volumes with Rubrik

Encrypting your data has moved from being a “nice-to-have” to a mandatory procedure when creating or storing data on-premises or in the cloud. Cloud providers have generally taken the lead in making encryption a simple-to-use service on their platform. One example is Amazon Web Services (AWS), who offers users the ability to encrypt data in transit and at rest with many of their services, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Elastic File Service (EFS), and Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS). Rubrik has integrated with AWS encryption services from its inception, beginning with Amazon S3 and Rubrik CloudOut, and now including Amazon EBS snapshots. This integration provides not only the ability to encrypt data that Rubrik manages in AWS, but also key management through the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) and customer-deployed key management systems. These integrations give our joint customers the flexibility to control their encryption keys seamlessly while using Rubrik for data management in AWS. I’ve been writing about how Rubrik helps customer with protecting their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances using Amazon EBS and Amazon Machine Images (AMI).

Encrypting Your Data in the Cloud: Rubrik CloudOut with Google Cloud Storage

With the rise of ransomware attacks and other security threats, data encryption is mission-critical for any company’s security strategy. The risk of improperly encrypting data is especially amplified in the cloud era, when sensitive data is stored outside of customer data centers and in public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. While these providers offer a number of tools to help customer encrypt data before it is stored, these tools can be complex and difficult to use. Addressing the top enterprise pain points is what Rubrik was founded on, and security has been core to its platform since day one. This includes end-to-end encryption, both in transit and at rest, which we extend to our integration with public cloud providers. The Rubrik approach simplifies how data encryption is implemented and masks complexity from users. Rubrik has a wide breadth of cloud capabilities, from simple archival to DR and test/dev. Many customers leverage our CloudOut capability for archival of their backup data in public cloud providers, often as a replacement for tape. This approach is typically more cost effective and more reliable, and offers better response times in the event that data restoration is required.…

Encrypting Your Data in the Cloud: Rubrik CloudOut with Azure Blob Storage

In a previous post, I discussed the role of data encryption as a critical component of any company’s security posture and the potential pitfalls of not using encryption properly. This is magnified when you are talking about storing data outside of customer data centers in public cloud storage repositories such as Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, and Google Cloud Storage. Since the beginning, security has been a key pillar of Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management platform. Our engineers have built security into every aspect of the platform, from end-to-end encryption to immutable backups. Naturally, this obsession with security extends to our integration with the cloud. As customers adopt the cloud, many are leveraging our CloudOut capability for long-time archive in the public cloud, often as a replacement for tape. This approach is typically more cost effective, more reliable, and offers better response times in the event that data restoration is required. I recently spelled out how Rubrik secures data that is sent to the cloud by encrypting data both in transit and at rest using a variety of methodologies with AWS. This post gives a more in-depth look at Rubrik’s main principles for encrypting data in the cloud, including using the…
