Rubrik is the First Cloud Data Management and Backup and Recovery Platform to be Certified by the Department of Defense Information Network (DODIN) Approved Product List (APL)
WASHINGTON and PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — @Rubrik, the #Cloud #DataManagement Company, today announced that its platform has been certified for placement on the U.S. @Department of Defense Information Network Approved Products List (DODIN APL). The #DODIN APL provides a consolidated list of products that are approved for purchase by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). In order to be placed on the DODIN APL, products must be evaluated and achieve certification for information assurance (IA) and interoperability (IO) by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC). The independent evaluation by the DOD found that Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management platform met the criteria of strict security standards allowing the products to be used immediately within existing government networks, while offering customers a streamlined purchase process. The DODIN APL is the latest government certification for Rubrik. The company’s technology enables federal agencies to comply with Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) and Modernizing Government Technology Act (MGT) mandates, which require agencies to improve infrastructure to be more efficient, secure, resilient, and cost-effective, particularly through increased cloud adoption. Federal agencies use Rubrik to simply and securely manage data across on-premises and cloud environments, reduce data center footprints by up to 70%, and improve operational efficiency with Rubrik’s policy-based automation and robust integrations with third-party technology tools. This compelling ROI enables federal agencies to utilize MGT working capital funds for Rubrik, to speed procurement, deployment and time to value. “The DODIN APL certification reflects Rubrik’s continued commitment to providing the public sector with the most secure, powerful, and cost-effective data management capabilities,” said Steve Alfieris, VP & GM of Federal Government, Rubrik. “With the passing of the Modernizing Government Technology Act (MGT) there is a huge opportunity for federal agencies to access funds to modernize their technology infrastructures and this certification makes it even easier for our defense customers to get improved systems up and running quickly in support of the MGT mandates.” Federal agencies across the Department of Defense and Civilian agencies have adopted Rubrik to simplify their data center environments. Rubrik has built the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of government certifications and accreditations across the hybrid cloud, including Common Criteria EAL2+, FIPS 140-2 Level-2 validated self-encrypting drives, and support for all major AWS and Microsoft Azure government infrastructure clouds.
