South African cyber security specialist Obscure Technologies has partnered with Rubrik, the zero-trust data security company, for the distribution of its solutions in South Africa.

The non-exclusive distribution agreement adds crucial data security, cyber resilience and recovery competence to Obscure Technologies’ product stack. Rubrik provides data resilience, data observability and ransomware recovery with air-gapped, immutable, access-controlled backups.

Obscure Technologies MD Justin Lee says, “Data security is the fastest growing area of cybersecurity at the moment, and a top priority for South African organisations. This space was a missing piece in the puzzle of our security portfolio, so adding Rubrik to our product stack addresses our partners’ and customers' evolving cybersecurity and data protection needs across the board.”

He adds, “Data is the most valuable asset of most companies today. Rubrik offers a secure vault to protect data, and in the eventuality of organisations being breached, Rubrik enables them to restore their data to the last known pure position and get business up and running quickly.”

Obscure Technologies is continually adding best-of-breed products to its stack, and now has a portfolio of 17 cybersecurity and data protection solutions with an 18th service offering set to be announced soon.

“With the addition of Rubrik to our portfolio, we are offering our partners an opportunity to open new revenue streams for their existing installed bases, and to take something to market which we believe is a front-and-centre priority. It fulfils a growing need in the ransomware and malware space, and supports continuity and resiliency, which is becoming a critical requirement for business,” Lee concludes.
