Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, has announced a new collaboration with Aon plc, a global professional services firm. By working together, Rubrik expands its portfolio of data protection solutions available to the Rubrik Transform Partner Ecosystem, while Aon customers now have access to Rubrik Security Cloud to secure their data wherever it lives.
What does this mean for joint clients?
The companies will empower joint clients to make better business decisions and achieve greater cyber readiness — and ultimately, cyber resilience. Organisations can actively mitigate risk by using backups as part of a cyber resilience strategy. But according to a recent Rubrik Zero Labs State of Data Security report, although 99% of surveyed organisations reported having backup and recovery tech, 93% encountered significant issues with their solution.
Furthermore, Aon’s 2023 Cyber Resilience Report found that almost 90% of companies in the U.S. reported not storing backups in the cloud, and 70% do not store backups offsite or have immutable backups. Rubrik Security Cloud is the leading data security platform built upon Zero Trust principles and a unique backup architecture, designed for cyber recovery.
Through this new collaboration, Aon clients will now have the option to access Rubrik Security Cloud to help keep its data safe, continuously monitor risks, and recover business-critical data with more speed and confidence. Aon is a trusted advisor for organisations due to its unique understanding of the five controls necessary to assess cyber risk maturity, including data integrity, data confidentiality, data availability, data isolation, and backup operations.
By working with Rubrik, Aon now bolsters the ability of its esteemed clients to better excel against these controls, propelled by Rubrik Security Cloud’s security from the point of data.
What does the partnership mean for stakeholders?
“Traditional cybersecurity has focused on building walls and securing the perimeter, which has let data security slip through the cracks. Aon not only has tremendous insight into the real threats businesses face today, but they also have the tools and expertise to help customers protect themselves,” said Ghazal Asif, Vice President of Global Partners and Alliances, Rubrik.
“The shared goal of helping organisations reach cyber resilience make Rubrik and Aon strong complements in serving organisations’ needs, and we’re excited to forge this relationship.”
Commenting on the new partnership with Rubrik, Christopher Bruno, Head of Strategic Alliances for Aon’s Cyber Solutions, said, “The drive toward cyber resilience is based on an organisation’s appetite for risk, government regulations, and insurability against risk.”
“While we’ve come a long way in the art of the backup, many firms have an opportunity to improve recovery, highlighting the need for speed, confidence, and minimal impact. Backups alone are not enough, and we appreciate the relationship with Rubrik as the company has made investments in its tech to help firms address the elements of good cyber resilience.”
