You’re less protected than you think.

Rethink end user data backup.


The world of end user data has changed, but has your backup strategy kept up? Legacy backup solutions like HP Connected leave vital corporate data not only unprotected, but also at risk for IP loss, damaged reputation, and millions in fines. Organizations require a new solution tailored for today’s mobile workforce.

A modern approach to endpoint data backup can bring your organization continuous, reliable, and zero-impact backups, while enabling streamlined, integrated eDiscovery, no matter where your data resides (laptops, mobile devices, cloud services).

…It’s no wonder why Druva regularly replaces HP Connected at global organizations and is ranked #1 by Gartner with over 3,000 enterprise clients around the world.

Reliable backups

With inSync, you never have to wonder whether a user has completed a backup or which devices are accessing corporate data—all that information is at your fingertips. Centralized management and data governance provide full visibility into data use in your organization.

Zero impact on performance

Backups shouldn’t disrupt your users’ work experience or cause them to disable the service because it’s intrusive. Druva inSync runs silently and ensures that 100% of your data is always available and protected, all while providing business with higher value at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

Governance via data access and visibility

Today’s increasingly mobile enterprise has resulted in a loss of data control. Data on laptops and smartphones as well as within cloud applications translates to increased risk of company data loss and the inability to track, hold or monitor data for regulatory compliance and legal obligations. Druva inSync offers full visibility into data across devices and cloud applications, as well as controls to manage file access across type, geography, and employee.
