PALO ALTO, Calif, January 17, 2024 – Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, announces that Rubrik Security Cloud - Government, purpose-built for public sector institutions to secure enterprise, cloud, and SaaS data to ensure mission continuity, is approved for StateRAMP Authorization. With this StateRAMP certification, Rubrik will help empower state, local, and educational institutions to boost cyber resilience and minimize the impact of cyberattacks with a single technology platform across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS.
“State governments are not exempt from nefarious cyber activity. In fact, they can be particularly enticing to bad actors due to the significant negative impact a cyber incident can have on these institutions, their citizens, and their limited cybersecurity resources,” said Anneka Gupta, Chief Product Officer at Rubrik. “With StateRAMP certification, we help our government agency customers meet stringent security standards and stand up to modern cyber threats — rather than be taken down.”
For nearly a decade, Rubrik has helped keep data readily accessible to withstand cyberattacks by continuously monitoring for emergent threats and rapidly restoring impacted apps, files, or objects while containing threats. Hundreds of state and local governments nationwide rely on Rubrik, including the Lewis County Public Utility District, San Joaquin County, and South Louisiana Community College.
To date, Rubrik Security Cloud - Government has achieved:
- “In Process” FedRAMP® status and attained security attestations for Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Security Policy and Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) security conformance.
- 3PAO Attestation of Compliance with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Secure Software Development Requirements as outlined in White House Executive Order 14028 on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity
Rubrik Zero Labs estimated in its most recent State of Data Security report that the total volume of data a typical organization needs to secure is expected to increase by almost 100 backend terabytes in the next year — and by 7x in the next five years. To ensure the security of key services, including critical infrastructure, state and local governments that leverage Rubrik will now be better equipped to navigate data growth to protect their citizens' vital resources and sensitive data.
Rubrik has a long history of securing data for federal, state, local governments and educational institutions. Over the past year, the company has continued showcasing its commitment to public and private sector collaboration. The company’s work includes the industry’s first $10 Million Ransomware Recovery Warranty offering for qualified customers, created in response to the call for more shared responsibility among technology companies and vendors in the face of cyber threats. Rubrik also formed a CISO Advisory Board, chaired by the first Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Chris Krebs, to identify emerging cybersecurity trends and formulate best practices to strengthen organizational security posture and resilience.
StateRAMP is a registered 501(c)(6) nonprofit membership organization committed to making the digital landscape a safer, more secure place. Founded in 2020, StateRAMP was born from the clear need for a standardized approach to the cybersecurity standards required from IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS service providers offering solutions to state and local governments. With StateRAMP, procurement officials, privacy officers, and IT and security leaders can be confident that these solutions responsible for processing, storing, or transmitting sensitive data meet and maintain the government’s published cybersecurity policies.
