CrowdStrike a deal with Rubrik


CrowdStrike and Rubrik have announced a strategic partnership.

According to the 2024 CrowdStrike Global Threat Report, adversaries continue to target sensitive information to conduct data-theft extortion attacks.

At the same time, research from Rubrik conducted by Wakefield Research shows that nearly every business (98%) reporting struggles with data visibility due to complex technology stacks, creating gaps that adversaries can exploit.

To stop breaches, security teams need to rapidly identify and prioritise response actions to threats targeting an organisation’s most valuable data.

The combination of the Falcon Platform and the Rubrik Security Cloud unifies threat detection with data discovery and classification across cloud and IT infrastructure, designed to deliver the context security teams need to rapidly detect and respond to attacks on high-value data targets.

“CrowdStrike Falcon has become cybersecurity’s source of truth and platform of record. Our partnership with Rubrik strengthens CrowdStrike’s data gravity, unifying threat detection with data discovery, classification and backup,” said Daniel Bernard, chief business officer at CrowdStrike. “Through this partnership, we’re delivering the visibility and context security teams need to prioritise and accelerate response actions required to stop breaches of sensitive information – all from a single platform.”

“Legacy backup tools are not designed for modern cyberattacks, and many organisations are now paying the price. The gap between threat detection, data discovery, and classification creates significant visibility challenges for security teams defending critical data,” said Anneka Gupta, chief product officer, Rubrik. “With CrowdStrike, we are helping our customers up the ante against cyber adversaries, allowing security teams to identify and defend against attacks swiftly – and ultimately boost cyber resilience.”

“With Rubrik’s data security intelligence, CANCOM’s focused solutions and services, and CrowdStrike’s cutting-edge cyber security solutions, we will fortify our offering with increased protection, faster recovery, and reduced data security risk. This partnership reflects our shared commitment to reinforcing cybersecurity measures and empowering organisations to navigate the complexities of the cyber landscape with confidence,” said Alexander Ernst, Director Competence Centre – Network & Security at CANCOM.

“We believe the Rubrik and CrowdStrike partnership and the value of their integrations will bring our customers comprehensive cybersecurity solutions. With these two leaders coming together, World Wide Technology will now be able to empower our customers to safeguard their critical data, identify threats, and enable rapid recovery while also enabling business continuity in the face of evolving cyber threats,” said, Jordan Hildebrand, Global Cyber – Practice Director Security Operations at World Wide Technology.
