Zero trust data security company Rubrik has said it has signed an agreement to acquire Laminar, a leading data security posture management (DSPM) platform, creating the industry’s first complete cyber resilience offering of its kind by bringing together cyber recovery and cyber posture across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS.
One of the biggest challenges organisations face today is low visibility into data across increasingly fragmented environments. According to a recent Rubrik Zero Labs State of Data Security report, more than half (51%) of organisations cite visibility differences as a top issue contributing to misalignment between IT and security teams.
“Rubrik and Laminar share a common vision that cyber resilience is the next frontier in data security,” commented Mike Tornincasa, Rubrik’s Chief Business Officer. “Laminar’s technology, ability to execute, and vision make it a perfect complement to our strategy and innovative roadmap. Together, our teams will create an integrated offering that gives customers the benefits of cyber recovery and cyber posture capabilities, and positions them to be resilient in their fight against cyberattacks.”
Combining cloud-native design with deep security expertise
Laminar combines cloud-native design with deep security expertise to provide the visibility and control organisations need to protect their most sensitive data. Together, Rubrik and Laminar will further enable customers to be even more proactive in the fight against cyberattacks and provide businesses with cyber resilience.
“There is a dark side to digital transformation in the form of shadow IT, and more businesses are realising they can’t protect against what they can’t see—leaving them vulnerable to cyberattacks,” said Amit Shaked, CEO and co-founder of Laminar. “We have found synergy with Rubrik, a company that cares just as deeply about ensuring that customers are prepared against the inevitable. The combination of cyber posture and cyber recovery will help create a cyber resilient future where organisations can take on any threat, at any stage of the attack.”
“CISOs are under increased pressure to ensure their organizations are protected from sophisticated cyberattacks. Yet the traditional cybersecurity solutions they rely on lack visibility into where sensitive data lives," said Marene Allison, Former CISO, Johnson & Johnson and Rubrik CISO Advisor Board Member. "One of the ways to keep businesses from being vulnerable to bad actors is to leverage cyber posture and cyber recovery, as both are required to achieve complete cyber resilience."
Rubrik continues global expansion with new R&D centre
To fuel cybersecurity innovation, Rubrik will also leverage the Laminar team to create an R&D center in Tel Aviv, Israel. This will build upon the company’s existing R&D centers in Bangalore, India and Palo Alto, CA. Rubrik is thrilled to welcome and join forces with the incredibly talented and innovative team at Laminar to accelerate a shared data security vision and deliver even greater value to customers.
