Rubrik Threat Hunting Now Available on Rubrik Security Cloud - Government

  • Rubrik Threat Hunting is designed to accelerate safe recovery by determining the initial point, scope, and time of infection
  • Rubrik Security Cloud - Government enhancements now include protection of new workloads, advanced access control measures, and additions to Data Threat Analytics

As government agencies increasingly fall victim to catastrophic cyberattacks, Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, announces Rubrik Threat Hunting is now available to Rubrik Security Cloud - Government customers. Rubrik Threat Hunting empowers federal, state, and educational institutions to prevent malware reinfection with insights into the initial point, scope, and time of infection.

In the event of a malicious cyber event such as ransomware, speed is paramount to recovery and remediation. But as data continues to rapidly surge and sprawl across SaaS, cloud, and on-premises, organizations struggle to identify what systems were first affected before they can surgically and rapidly restore business continuity, without the risk of reinfection.

According to the most recent Rubrik Zero Labs State of Data Security report, 66% of IT and security leaders surveyed believe their organization’s current data growth is outpacing their ability to secure this data and manage risk. This can lead to delays in identifying the chronology of a cyberattack, and further delay overall incident response.

“Imagine recovering from a cyberattack, only to find out that your organization has accidentally reintroduced the malware back into the system. After the costly downtime, psychological impact, and reputational damage — you’re back at square one,” said Anneka Gupta, Chief Product Officer at Rubrik. “Pinpointing the point, scope, and time of the infection can be nearly impossible without the ability to analyze the history of data for indicators of compromise. Rubrik Threat Hunting provides this deep level of intelligence, designed to enable federal and state governments to be confident in their cyber recovery.”

Find Malware and Avoid Reinfection with Rubrik Threat Hunting

Now with Rubrik Threat Hunting, government entities can directly scan their backups for indicators of compromise, including ransomware. With this added intelligence, organizations can more accurately identify the last known clean copy of data in order to prevent reinfection during and after recovery. This allows organizations to verify the integrity of backups and other assets before restoration, and thereby adhere to The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)’s recently updated Cybersecurity Framework guidance as part of its Incident Recovery Plan Execution (RC.RP).
