PALO ALTO, Calif., June 8, 2022 Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, today announced it has been named the Hot Company in Data Security by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine. The award recognition was announced at the 2022 RSA Conference.

“As cyber attacks continue to increase in size and sophistication, it’s clear that relying solely on infrastructure security is no longer enough to keep businesses secure. In today’s complex threat environment, data security is essential,” said Bipul Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Rubrik. “Rubik delivers data security to confront cyber attacks, including ransomware, so that customers can secure and defend their data, recover quickly in the event of an attack, and prevail in this volatile cyber landscape. We are laser-focused on continuing to pioneer data security - the next frontier in cybersecurity - and are thrilled to have our innovations recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine.”

Rubrik’s recognition in the 2022 Global InfoSec Awards follows continued product innovation, including the recent launch of Rubrik Security Cloud to secure customers’ data, wherever it lives, across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS. This award also comes on the heels of several noteworthy leadership appointments for Rubrik, including former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Michael Mestrovich being named Rubrik CISO, and Former Director of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Chris Krebs being named Chair of Rubrik’s new CISO Advisory Board.

“Rubrik embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of CDM.

This is CDM’s tenth year of honoring InfoSec innovators from around the globe that offer a unique and compelling value proposition for their product or service.

Rubrik is on-site at the 2022 RSA Conference in San Francisco from June 6-9. Attendees can visit booth N-4628 for hands-on labs and discussion of how Rubrik Security Cloud helps you defend your data, recover quickly, and prevail in today’s cyber landscape.
