WIRD partner company Rubrik announces strategic agreement with Microsoft to combat Ransomware

Leading cloud security and backup solution provider Rubrik announced on August 17, 2021, a strategic agreement with Microsoft to mitigate ransomware threats and tightly integrate cloud services. Together, Rubrik and Microsoft will provide Microsoft 365 and hybrid cloud data protection and integrated cloud services on Microsoft Azure. Microsoft takes a stake in Rubrik to underpin this cooperation.

This is good news for all existing MS 365 and Azure clients, since the market leading cloud security capabilities and zero trust know how of Rubrik will help to protect against ransomware attacks. Rubrik and Microsoft plan to provide Microsoft 365, data protection and cloud services on Azure, according to Rubrik.

Microsoft made the investment as it continues its push for organisations to adopt a Zero Trust architecture, which focuses to incluce cloud applications and aims to protect BYOD devices and applications that are used at work and home. Microsoft sees an opportunity to make the cloud a key defence against the rise in ransomware attacks, which often happen as a result of attackers scanning for and finding RDPs and VPNs exposed on the internet.

The partnership will also help customers continue digital transformation projects and push more data safely to the cloud. The two companies support more than 2000 mutual customers globally, many of them in Switzerland. WIRD Group is the leading Rubrik Partner in Switzerland with reference clients in Swiss financial services, pharma / chemical and producing industries.
