Rubrik making GDPR simpler



If you’re following us on our social media, you’ll already know that we’ve gone GDPR central from now till December!

In our last post, we brought you the history of GDPR and its importance in modern day, so we thought this time to bring into the mix how and where we fit into all of this. Surprisingly the service we provide has a key role to play in the ever-approaching Data security new laws – GDPR.

GDPR is going to be tougher than any previous Data security laws, no matter your organisation type, where you operate from, if you process any EU Data the rules still apply.


So, where do we and Rubrik come into all this?

Through the Rubrik solution we aim to ease the process of what seems to be a never-ending line of hoops to jump through to compliance, as well as generally pointing you in the direction of useful hints to get you GDPR compliant.

Now one of the most common obstacles that companies face is because they store their data in a fragmented way, scattered across different location on-premises and in the cloud. This overall makes it harder to comply with GDPR since pretty much every article centres around, in one way or another, always having access to the data you possess as well as being able to protect and keep an eye on it at all times.

Long story short, GDPR is all about being prepared for any eventuality with your data and choosing a smart solution from the start. We believe these 3 key elements that Rubrik offer help you be that bit closer to making yourself GDPR ready:

  • Unified Management
  • Fast Recovery
  • Policy Driven Automation

GDPR has a lot of requirements to meet but it’s hard to know how to resolve them, luckily, we have some wisdom to offer on how Rubrik could help.


Here are 3 answers to the obstacles you face;

  1. Article 5 – Companies need to be accountable for how they comply with Data Protection and privacy.

This is easier to resolve than you think, simply by using Rubrik Envision companies can deliver custom visual reporting on compliance, capacity as well as retention.
