David Rajkovic appointed to lead Rubrik ANZ business


Zero trust data security company Rubrik has appointed David Rajkovic as its managing director for ANZ.

Based in Sydney, Rajkovic was previously Commvault’s area vice president ANZ.

He brings almost two decades’ of experience from both the partner and vendor sides of the channel.

Rajkovic started his career as a field engineer and solution architect working at companies like Com Tech and Dimension Data, before rising through the ranks to serve in executive roles at Citrix and Oracle.

Rubrik APJ vice president Antoine Le Tard said Rajkovic is “the perfect person to lead the ANZ business, given his deep knowledge of the local market and strong relationships across the industry.”

“Despite a litany of recent breaches, local organisations are still struggling to ensure their businesses remain cyber resilient,” he said.

“Just last week,  the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) issued a notice to the entities it oversees highlighting the importance of backups after having observed weakness in ‘the use of data backups to protect an entity against data loss’.”

“Part of the challenge is that many organisations believe they have an adequate backup and recovery strategy, only to see it fail when needed. David understands the journey to cyber resilience. His respect in the industry and his relationships make him the perfect candidate to lead our local business and reinforce Rubrik as the logical choice to improve cyber resilience.”

Rajkovic said his initial focus would be on building long-term strategic relationships with partners and customers, aiming to educate the wider market on true cyber resilience.

“APRA’s letter to its members is indicative of a broader challenge facing local organisations. Data needs to be air-gapped, immutable, and managed while being able to ensure it is always available as part of business continuity,” Rajkovic said. “That’s what attracted me to Rubrik – the company offers its customers true cyber resilience.”
