Combining Zscaler & Rubrik to Enhance Data Protection
By: Tony Jaroszewski, Director, Specialty Sales Engineering
Zscaler and Rubrik, two industry-leading cloud security vendors, offer complementary solutions for enhanced data protection. Zscaler’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform enables cloud-based security for all users and devices, while Rubrik’s data management platform provides a unified approach to data backup, recovery, and analytics.
When used together, Zscaler and Rubrik deliver a powerful solution for data protection that can help organizations to:
- Identify sensitive data: Rubrik’s Sensitive Data Discovery tool can automatically identify sensitive data across all of an organization’s data sources, including on-premises, cloud, and SaaS applications.
- Prevent data exfiltration: Once the sensitive data is identified, Zscaler’s data loss prevention (DLP) policies can be used to inspect all outbound traffic for this sensitive data. If any sensitive data is detected, Zscaler can block the traffic or take other actions to prevent the data from being exfiltrated.
- Recover data quickly: Rubrik’s data protection platform makes it easy to back up and recover data from any point in time. This can be essential for organizations that need to recover data after a data breach or ransomware attack.
- Gain insights into data usage: Rubrik’s data analytics tools can be used to gain insights into how data is being used within an organization. This information can be used to identify potential security risks and to improve data governance practices.
Leveraging AHEAD to integrate Zscaler and Rubrik provides a powerful solution for data protection that can help organizations to protect their data from a variety of threats. This solution is particularly well-suited for organizations that are looking to implement a SASE architecture or that are seeking a cloud-based data protection solution.
Put even more simply, Zscaler and Rubrik are two cloud security-aware companies that work together to protect your data. Rubrik can identify your sensitive data along with providing quick and easy backup and recovery. Zscaler can then use this identification to enforce policies that prevent sensitive data from being exfiltrated.
Using Zscaler and Rubrik in tandem, you can reduce the risk of data breaches, ransomware attacks, and other data loss incidents. To learn more, get in touch with AHEAD today.
