Palo Alto based data management specialist Rubrik has unveiled a new suite of capabilities, designed specifically to address key issues around data governance.
The firm’s new ‘Andes 5.1’ offering features two SaaS applications – Sonar and Appflows – for data classification, data protection and disaster recovery (DR) orchestration.
These, Rubrik said, will also enable Australian businesses to achieve compliance, data mobility, increased continuity, higher productivity along with increased predictably settings around cost savings through consolidation.
Rubrik ANZ Country Manager Luke McGoldrick, for his part, expects the new capabilities to see significant uptake by Australian businesses, especially in light of increasing industry-wide emphasis on data compliance and privacy as well as ever more pervasive headlines relating to data misuse.
“Highly-publicised horror stories on data theft have heightened concerns around governance for our customers,” McGoldrick said. “ANZ businesses are facing increasing data privacy restrictions and compliance around personal data, whether it’s the Australian Privacy Principles or the newly-passed Consumer Data Right Legislation.”
McGoldrick said Rubrik Polaris was developed to help ensure organisations can more easily detect the location of specific types of data, which in turn allows them to achieve data privacy compliance in a more cost-effective manner.
“By simplifying compliance with automation, we have already seen a customer achieve upwards of 90 per cent operational savings,” he added, noting that as ANZ-based companies continue their cloud rollouts across multiple environments, the importance of data governance and visibility will compound accordingly.
Key features of the Andes 5.1 release include:
- Polaris Sonar SaaS application discovers, classifies, and reports on sensitive data to help companies comply with regulations such as PCI/DSS, SOX, HIPAA, and data privacy requirements such as GDPR and CCPA
- Polaris AppFlows SaaS application provides complete DR orchestration, DR testing, and application migration from data centres to Amazon Web Services (AWS)
- Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management service natively delivers industry’s first one-click Continuous Data Protection with VMware Ready certification
