Johannesburg, SA – 08 September 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Rubrik, which simplifies backup and recovery for hybrid cloud environments, has joined the leaders section in the Gartner Backup and Recovery Magic Quadrant. According to the global research and advisory firm’s criteria, this implies that Rubrik is a company that executes well today, and is additionally well-positioned for tomorrow, when measured against its completeness of vision and ability to execute[1].

Rubrik is distributed throughout Africa by value added distributor, Networks Unlimited Africa.

Risna Steenkamp, General Manager: ESM Division at Networks Unlimited Africa, clarifies: “Previously, Rubrik was placed in the visionary section of the Backup and Recovery Magic Quadrant. According to Gartner’s evaluation system, companies placed in this quadrant are deemed to understand where the market is going – or have a vision for changing market rules – but may still need to work on their business execution[2]. We congratulate Rubrik for this change of categorisation and believe that it is a nod from Gartner to its solid business principles and ability to achieve its business strategies and goals.”

Rubrik, which simplifies backup and recovery for hybrid cloud environments, offers a single platform that manages all data in the cloud, at the edge, or on-premises for backup, disaster recovery, archival, compliance, analytics and copy data management. It currently boasts a customer base of over 3 000 enterprise and government customers.

Werner Vorster, Country Manager Southern Africa from Rubrik, adds: “We are extremely grateful that Gartner has recognised Rubrik as the most visionary player in the leaders quadrant. Gartner highlights three key market drivers in this section of the market, namely public cloud, heightened concerns over ransomware attacks, and the complexities associated with backup and data management. These are areas where Rubrik performs especially well and we believe we are in the best position to deliver on market demands.”

“A company’s presence on a relevant Gartner Magic Quadrant helps existing and potential business partners to break down the strengths of its solutions and offerings, as measured by an objective, reputable global research organisation, and offers insight, ways to evaluate and reassurance. Networks Unlimited is pleased to be associated as a vendor partner with Rubrik, which has proven its soundness in both its business vision as well as execution, and we wish them ongoing success moving forward,” concludes Steenkamp.
