Rubrik Unveils Integration with Microsoft 365 Backup

Rubrik announced a new integration with Microsoft 365 Backup. Designed for joint Rubrik and Microsoft 365 customers, the solution helps organizations strengthen their cyber resiliency in the face of growing cyberattacks.

As a Microsoft partner, Rubrik’s integration with Microsoft 365 Backup safeguards customers by providing faster Microsoft 365 restores, recovery of Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), and comprehensive, centralized management of Microsoft 365 data and other SaaS and hybrid cloud workloads.

According to Rubrik Zero Labs’ State of Data Security report, 61 percent of cyberattacks in 2022 affected SaaS applications – the most targeted environment t– signaling the critical need for a solution that can reduce recovery times to keep organizations up and running.

“The new barometer for a successful cybersecurity posture is how quickly organizations can recover from attacks, and prevent threats from halting their operations,” said Bipul Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Rubrik. “With so much of customers’ valuable data residing within their Microsoft 365 environment, this cannot be a blind spot of their cybersecurity approach. Today’s announcement is yet another key milestone in our long-standing collaboration with Microsoft and continued effort to provide the best cybersecurity solutions to our joint customers.”

Microsoft 365 Backup is a pay-as-you-go offering that provides modern backup and recovery capabilities for Exchange Online, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business. The Rubrik integration with Microsoft 365 Backup will use Microsoft’s backup APIs to enhance Microsoft 365 recovery performance and scalability, keep data resilient, and deliver more comprehensive data protection with centralized data management in Rubrik Security Cloud.

Rubrik’s integration with Microsoft 365 Backup empowers organizations to:

  • Rapidly Restore Data in Bulk – Helps ensure business continuity with bulk restores and fast recovery of Microsoft 365 data en masse using Microsoft’s new backup APIs to maximize performance.
  • Maximize Recoverability – Back up Azure AD users and groups by recreating AD objects and recovering data with roles and permissions intact, and implement more holistic protection across Microsoft 365 Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive and Teams.
  • Centralize Management – Automate protection across Microsoft 365 and other SaaS, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments in a single platform.

The integration with Microsoft 365 Backup joins the existing Rubrik-hosted Microsoft 365 Data Protection solution, focused on security and compliance-driven options for Rubrik-managed backup and recovery.
