Introducing Rubrik Protection for Microsoft 365 OneDrive

Millions of enterprises rely on Microsoft 365 applications to support employee productivity with cloud-based communication and document management. OneDrive is a key application, serving as both a file share and a way to increase collaboration within newly distributed workforces. For many organizations, OneDrive is business critical, making those files and folders all the more devastating to lose.

That’s why Rubrik have extended their support of the Microsoft 365 suite to OneDrive, which is now generally available!

When developing their protection for OneDrive and the rest of the Microsoft 365 suite, they kept in mind numerous pain points from customers, including lack of control over their data and limited search capabilities. Rubrik’s solution has been designed to address these shortcomings from day one while retaining the simplicity and ease-of-use that defines all Rubrik products.

Most Microsoft 365 data protection solutions can be categorized as either on-premises or software-as-a-service (SaaS). Rubrik takes a novel approach they call Hybrid SaaS, which weaves the simplicity of SaaS–no patching, no versioning, and no monitoring–with the data control of an on-premises solution. Rubrik’s scalable architecture can ingest 1 TB per hour, meaning a tenant with 1,000 OneDrives can complete an initial backup in less than 24 hours.

Authentication via OAuth means that you can establish a secure connection from anywhere in the world without directly relaying your credentials to Rubrik’s Polaris. Your data is never ingested into Polaris or stored on Rubrik’s servers. Instead, they run a data engine within your Azure subscription, meaning no data will ever leave your environment–or your control–so that you’re not compromising security for robust functionality. With Rubrik, you get both.
