Immutability by Design
Take your pick: immutable data storage from the start or additional components you have to tack on yourself? Rubrik is immutable by design, not through a hardened Linux repository or object storage, so your data is secure from the start.
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 role-based access controls, credentials, and a two-person rule (TPR) for administrative actions.

How Rubrik and Veeam Compare
Rubrik offers the leading secure primary backup solution in the industry with high quality, value, and customer satisfaction. Here’s a competitive breakdown of how Veeam falls short against Rubrik’s native capabilities.
| Veeam |
Secure your data from threats
Rubrik runs on an immutable, append-only file system that is immutable at the time the cluster is created.
|Veeam requires an additional component, a hardened Linux repository, or object storage for data immutability.|
Rubrik has no Windows dependencies and stores backups in a proprietary format on hyperconverged storage.
|Veeam Backup & Replication is Windows-based and also requires 3rd party storage repositories and proxies. Can be prone to data exfiltration.|
Backup expiration based on Monotonic Clock prevents NTP changes or poisioning from expiring backups.
|Backup expiration based on system time is vulnerable to NTP changes or poisioning to expire your backups.|
Rubrik supports AD/LDAP integration as well as SSO via SAML, 2FA, and Native TOTP.
|Uses Windows AD for authentication and does not support customized RBAC.|
Hyperconverged platform with software, storage, and compute all in one.
|Segmented architecure with the need of a 3rd party storage device used as a backup repository.|
Backup expiration based on system time is vulnerable to NTP changes or poisioning to expire your backups
Uses multi-phased, adaptive machine learning intelligence to detect anomalous activity and encryption.
|Uses separate application to provide broad, static, user-set thresholds to determine when to alert users.|
Comprehensive model training uses simulations and real-world attacks to ensure high-confidence alerting.
|Frequent false positives can lead users to disregard alarms.|
Fully integrated sensitive data discovery.
|No built-in sensitive data classification features.|
Rubrik Threat Hunting finds malware activity in current and historical copies of data.
|No threat hunting capability.|
Rapidly recover your data
Integrated DR Orchestration with single-click application recovery.
|Utilizes a separate application for DR Orchestration with no single pane of glass management.|
SLA-based backups are applied at an object level, allowing for granular assignment regardless of workload.
|Restrictive job-based approach that creates unneccessary job sprawl as the environment grows.|
Rubrik can detect malware in backups and provide a blast radius, allowing recovery of the last known good copy of data.
|Unable to detect malware without the use of a 3rd party antivirus scanner. Does not provide a blast radius or any indication of last known good backup without manual scanning of each backup.|
Companies Worldwide Depend on Rubrik
With Rubrik Zero Trust Data Security, your backup data is immutable as soon as it is written to our purpose-built, append-only file system and cannot be modified, deleted, or encrypted by ransomware. Your data is readily available, so you can recover what you need, when you need it, without ever having to pay a ransom.
Rubrik replaces legacy tapes and disk backup. Cloud backup. Single pane of glass. Rubrik just feels like so much better as an enterprise product than Veeam does.
What we still love about Rubrik against veeam is the fact that Rubrik is coming as a full turnkey solution with storage included directly in the product. veeam is still a virtual appliance and you have to provide it with some sort of storage.
We considered Avamar, CommVault, Veeam Backup & Replication, and Veritas Backup Exec. Rubrik was the easiest solution to manage and use. This is the main reason we went with Rubrik.
Veeam just did not seem to fit well in our environment, and we had multiple issues with their support and recovery functionality of their product. Rubrik definitely is a leading contender compared to Veeam, and we would [stay] with this product.
We evaluated solutions from Veeam, Dell, CommVault, Exagrid, and Cohesity and found Rubrik to have the greatest ease of use and all the security features we needed as necessary for a modern solution. Additionally, Rubrik was very competitive in pricing.
The University of St. Thomas is committed to a cloud-first strategy so Rubrik is a natural fit. After a thorough review process, we selected Rubrik over Commvault, EMC, and Veeam because we felt they would be best in terms of strengthening our DR strategy, and had a solid reputation.
