Built-in Data Security That Relieves Your Headache

Reliable data security can’t be achieved through endless bolt-ons—it has to be built right into the technology. Rubrik’s Zero Trust Data Security is part of our DNA, making us immutable by design. Best of all, you don’t need a degree in our technology to make it work. It just does.


Rubrik’s logical air gap prevents unauthorized discovery, access, mounting, or compromise of data.


By storing data in a proprietary format and verifying it with data integrity checks​, Rubrik prevents unauthorized read, change, encryption, or deletion.


Rubrik eliminates unauthorized account compromise via granular role-based access controls and credentials, including MFA and TOTP.

We’ve Got Your (And Your Data’s) Back

Know You Can Recover

•Quickly identify your blast radius and what data was exposed with Ransomware Investigation and Data Classification.

Know What You Are Paying For

•Realistic sizing at initial planning.

•Predictable renewal costs.

•Cloud costs that are easy to understand.

Know You have a Reliable Partner

•High audited customer net promoter score of 84 thanks to proactive and responsive tech support.

•Code quality that delivers reliable backup and recovery.


How Rubrik and Commvault Compare

Legacy solutions were built for legacy challenges. See how Rubrik and Commvault stack up.


Data Resilience and Cyber Security

Distributed control plane that is natively resilient and secure with a reduced attack surface

Vulnerable single control server that relies on offloading metadata for resiliency

Backup expiration based on Monotonic Clock prevents NTP changes or poisoning from expiring

Dependent on underlying OS time with scheduled job based operations that are vulnerable to NTP poisoning

Threat Hunting in the backup data based on Yara Rules

Manual Staging and isolation to perform forensics on backup data and determine blast radius

Native append-only file system provides “bunker-in-a-box” approach with both built-in immutability and logical air-gap

Bolt-on Immutability derived from dissimilar technologies and OS types that allow for malicious file level deletion

Complexity and Operational Efficiency

Intuitive and simple to use single UI that seamlessly spans both SaaS and on-prem integration points from a single pane of glass

Multiple UIs—Command Center, Web Console, and Java GUI (for advanced tasks)—creates a chaotic user experience of overlapping functions and legacy holdovers

Protection objects are not dependent on entire job to complete before they are replicated to DR location

Inefficient job based replication queues groupings of objects behind protection operations

Unified and easy to deploy platform consisting of software, storage, and compute all in one

Legacy, complex, three-tier architecture requiring continuous OS maintenance and downstream patching of the many components spanning Media Agents, Data Governance servers, Commserves, Clients/Agents, and the very many different proxy servers

Reduced Downtime and Rapid Recovery

Predictable restore performance though scalable hyperconverged platform that increases CPU and Memory as solution grows

Inconsistent restore performance due to innumerable architectural options and copious hardware configurations

SLA based backups applied at an object level allowing for granular assignment regardless of workload

Restrictive job-based approach that is prone to job sprawl as environment grows

Application level Live-Mount allowing for near production grade database clones direct from Rubrik Cluster

Limited VM based Live-Mount functionality can only bring up a few VMs online in degraded state

Data Observability

Fully integrated Sensitive Data Discovery

Separate resource intensive architecture required to provide sensitive data discovery adding to complexity of solution

File level anomaly detection regardless of workload

Dependent on the deployment of agents to provide file level anomaly detection for VMs

Multi-phased, adaptive machine learning intelligence to detect anomalous activity to help identify encryption events

Change based anomaly detection keying off of file activity or file type making it prone to more frequent false positives

Why Organizations Choose Rubrik Over Commvault

RSC Is User Friendly & Easy To Setup

May 23, 2023

Setup and administration of RSC is very straight forward. User friendly administration. I love that they are partnered with Microsoft since we are a Microsoft shop. The dashboards are great and informative.

Rubrik Security Cloud Is A Fabulous Product

Oct 26, 2022

RSC is a highly scalable, simple to use product that has reduced our backup window by over 50%. It was simple to implement and quick to deploy.

Implementation Was Quick And Software Updates Quick. Customer Service Exceptional.

Sep 7, 2023

The vendor customer support was top notch from day one and continues to impress me with the interactions. They were able to implement a functional solution to a problem in little time and was able to improve that solution weeks later.

An Amazing Tool And Team To Have On Your Side

Oct 13, 2022

Rubrik is an amazing tool. It allows us to focus on infrastructure rather than worry about backups. It provides redundancy for all aspects of our system. The UI is very intuitive and working with the tool, support and reps has been amazing.

Commvault Metallic is Looking a Little Rusty

Commvault Metallic is not bred to be a PaaS-engineered product from the ground up! It is a lift-and-shift of Commvault to the cloud. Centrally managed, job-based, recycled legacy technology will leave you high and dry if the internet goes down. No ability to perform restores from on-prem means you better not tell your SecOps team to block your internet access—unless a hacker already did for you!

Maximum Cyber Resilience. Maximum Peace of Mind.

From the data center to the cloud, rest assured that your data is safe with Rubrik. Rubrik offers a $10M ransomware recovery warranty* for Rubrik Enterprise Edition and Rubrik Cloud Vault.

* Terms and conditions apply. Refer to warranty agreement for more information.
