Druva Achieves FedRAMP Authority to Operate
Government agencies can now take advantage of a cloud data protection and management solution that meets U.S. government’s rigorous information security standards
November 2, 2017 — Sunnyvale, Calif. — Druva Inc., a leader in cloud data protection and management, today announced that Druva inSync has been granted an Authority To Operate (ATO) under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). The FedRAMP is a U.S. government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, helping employees become more productive while staying secure.
As a FedRAMP-authorized Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering, government organizations can now embraceData Management-as-a-Service (DMaaS) in the public cloud. This standard provides federal agencies with the confidence that Druva's products meet the stringent security requirements to be used by all government agencies. It also allows government agencies to execute on the U.S. Government’s Cloud First directive that mandates cloud services be assessed and considered first over the acquisition of on premises infrastructure.
“Given the rigorous testing and validation process to gain FedRAMP ATO, our federal partners can now confidently turn to Druva’s DMaaS offering as a viable and secure option in the public cloud,” said Jaspreet Singh, co-founder and CEO of Druva Inc. “Our products have enabled government agencies to consolidate data siloes while embracing a cloud-first strategy in a secure way, and this latest FedRAMP ATO designation underscores our continued commitment to helping our government customers achieve their goals.”
Government agencies looking to store and manage critical information in the public cloud are required to use a FedRAMP-authorized solution. With this authorization, Druva inSync is now among a select group of eighty plus cloud solutions with the FedRAMP ATO designation, which further strengthens Druva’s already impressive SOC-2 and HIPAA security credentials. Druva inSync is built to run on the FedRAMP-authorized AWS GovCloud to align with agency regulations and adhere to compliance standards such as Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and more.
“As Amazon Web Services (AWS) expands our capabilities and services in AWS GovCloud (US), Druva’s cloud data protection and management capabilities add a valuable solution that will help agencies better protect their data,” said David Levy, Vice President, US Government, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We look forward to serving the needs of our government customers in cooperation with Druva.”
“Helping government agencies migrate and store critical information in the cloud requires overcoming many obstacles. One of those major obstacles is the security protocol required by government agencies,” says Yogesh Khanna, CTO of CSRA. “We are thrilled that Druva, as one of CSRA's emerging tech partners, has achieved their FedRAMP Moderate ATO as it will allow us to offer this service to our government customers.”

With Druva inSync, customers can dramatically increase the availability and visibility of business-critical data, while reducing costs, risk, and complexity.
