GITEX, UAE, October 17, 2023Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ company, today announced Rubrik Cyber Recovery has been named Exceptional Product/Service for Cybersecurity by MEA Business Magazine. Rubrik Data Threat Analytics solution was also selected as Best New Technology for Cybersecurity by the magazine, an official media partner for Gitex 2023.  

Rubrik received the awards based on its commitment to helping organisations achieve business resilience against cyber threats, malicious insiders, and operational disruptions that are currently plaguing industries worldwide.

"The world’s data is under attack. Cyber criminals only have to be right once to cause massive damage and bring an organisation to a screeching halt,” said Damian Wilk, Regional Vice President, Emerging Markets at Rubrik. “That’s why we give our customers cyber resilience - so that when the inevitable cyber attack happens, they can continue to keep their business running and thriving.” 

According to a recent Rubrik Zero Labs State of Data Security report, nine out of ten organisations globally reported that malicious actors attempted to access data backups during a cyberattack, and 73% were partially successful. This not only highlights the danger of over-reliance on insufficient backup and recovery solutions, but also the importance of a strong data security posture using zero trust principles.  

The MEA Business Technology Achievement Awards recognise the achievements of the Middle East and Africa region’s leading firms and technology providers at the forefront of digital transformation, and are judged by a panel of industry experts.

This recognition in the MEA Business Technology Achievement Awards 2023 comes on the heels of its other notable announcements including Rubrik acquiring Laminar, a data security posture management (DSPM) company, its ranking in the #9 spot on this year’s Forbes Cloud 100 list, and Rubrik being named a Leader and positioned furthest in vision in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions.

Rubrik is on-site this week at Gitex Global 2023 in Dubai. Attendees can visit booth H7-A25 to learn how they can safeguard their data, reduce incident impact, and respond to cyber incidents quickly and confidently with Rubrik Security Cloud.
