Rubrik, a Zero Trust data security company, and Zscaler, which focuses on cloud security, have announced a new technology integration intended to streamline data protection and compliance while also boosting cyber resilience.
As data continues to proliferate across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS environments, organizations are struggling to ensure that sensitive data is not deliberately or accidentally exfiltrated. With both data and users growing and expanding over ever more distributed landscapes and regulations, security has become top of mind for organizations.
According to new Rubrik data for 2022, organizations secured on average 61% more data in the cloud and 226% more data in SaaS applications than years prior. In Zscaler’s 2023 Phishing Report, Phishing attacks around the world rose nearly 50% in 2022 compared to 2021, as a result of new and evolving threats like Adversary-in-the-Middle (AitM) attacks, Phishing-as-a-Service (PaaS) kits, and AI tools like ChatGPT.
Rubrik’s integration of the company’s Sensitive Data Monitoring & Management offering with Zscaler Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is designed to identify sensitive business data across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS environments so that specific data protections can be implemented easily to prevent data loss.
“The growth and sophistication of cyberattacks show no signs of slowing down and they’re all after one thing – your data,” said Bipul Sinha, CEO and Co-founder of Rubrik. “That’s why we’re excited to partner with Zscaler, another leader in cybersecurity with zero trust ingrained in their DNA.”
“It is paramount for organizations to prioritize a Zero Trust strategy to keep business-critical operations running,” said Jay Chaudhry, CEO, chairman, and founder of Zscaler. “Combining Zscaler’s and Rubrik’s leadership and expertise in zero trust data security allows our joint customers to reap the benefits of protecting their most sensitive and important data with ease, enabling them to be more agile and secure.”
This new integration is intended to place valuable data security insights in the hands of security and compliance teams to strengthen data protection policies that help prevent the loss of critical business data.
