Rubrik Plans to Go Public

Rubrik, now headquartered in Palo Alto, California, was founded in 2014 by venture capitalist Bipul Sinha. Rubrik was reportedly valued at $4 billion following an investment made by Microsoft in 2021.

The company provides cloud-based ransomware prevention and data backup solutions to more than 6,000 clients. Some of its customers include Home Depot, Nvidia, and Kohl's.

The IPO filing of Rubrik is part of a rising trend of public listings on Wall Street. This trend began with the successful IPOs of Reddit and Astera Labs, and it is expected to continue as investors anticipate a decrease in borrowing costs.

The news first broke in a report by Reuters, which noted that the firm plans to go public in New York as early as April, all while one of its former workers is under investigation for fraud in the US.
