The Silicon Valley-based data security upstart has passed $400 million of software subscription annual recurring revenue by emphasizing data availability and resiliency in the face of crippling ransomware and extortion-based attacks. Sinha says Rubrik has focused on applying zero trust principles to data security, limiting access to data on the network to improve the chances of recovering from ransomware (see: Safety in the Cloud).

"We are going after observing the core data to understand the security threat," Sinha says. "As a result, our customers are not only doing the initial purchase, but they are also expanding with us rapidly."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Sinha also discusses:

  • What makes Rubrik different from other data backup vendors;
  • The fastest-growing areas of Rubrik's data security portfolio;
  • What Rubrik's new data threat research unit means for clients.

Sinha has more than 18 years of experience in building billion-dollar products and companies from the ground up. Prior to founding Rubrik in 2014, he spent four years as a partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners, where he focused on the software, mobile and internet sectors. Sinha's investments included Nutanix, Pulse News, Bromium, and PernixData. Before Lightspeed, he spent two years at Blumberg Capital, where he was the founding investor/board member of Nutanix and Hootsuite. Prior to that, Sinha worked in engineering positions at Oracle, American Megatrends and IBM. He holds several patents in distributed computing.
