Druva Achieves Highest Overall Product Score in Gartner Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Endpoint Backup Report
Druva, the leader in converged data protection, today announced that its inSync data protection and governance platform for endpoints and cloud applications received the highest product scores in all Use Cases –Overall, Cloud Deployment and On-Premises Deployment – out of eight solutions evaluated in Gartner, Inc.’s 2015 Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Endpoint Backup report.[i] This is the third consecutive time that Druva has received the highest overall product score in the report.
In the Critical Capabilities report Gartner notes that “endpoint backup is no longer a tactical product providing laptop file or device data recovery.” Gartner recommends for organizations using public cloud, applications select products that offer a centralized protection and management platform for end-use data on local devices as well as in the cloud. Additionally, “for organizations with legal and e-discovery requirements, work closely with the internal legal and compliance team when making a product selection to ensure that important requirements are met.”
Druva inSync offers data center class availability and governance for data residing on endpoints and in cloud applications. The integrated platform encompasses automated end-user backup, IT-managed sync and share, encryption and data loss prevention capabilities. It also offers a suite of data governance functionality with a centralized view to administer legal holds and enable eDiscovery. Finally inSync consolidates end-user data and provides integrated full-text search indexing, extensive auditing, and intuitive data visibility, so organizations can address their compliance needs.
“We work in the era of the ‘borderless enterprise.’ This new enterprise is powered by mobile and the cloud with corporate data dispersed across multiple destinations and devices,” said Jaspreet Singh, Druva founder and CEO. “Among the key findings shared in the report, ‘IT leaders are looking for a more strategic solution to centrally manage user data that is typically unmanaged today.’ Druva is converging data availability and governance to ensure end-user data is centrally and strategically protected, managed and governed.”
Gartner’s Critical Capabilities report offers comparative product and service research based on rigorous analysis and backed by highly structured methodologies. Gartner examined and rated eight endpoint backup products against 11 critical capabilities in three use cases – Overall, Cloud Deployment and On-Premises Deployment – to help IT leaders finalize their enterprise endpoint backup product shortlists. The capabilities considered in the report included client diversity, PC migration, mobile device support, performance, backup frequency, scalability, resiliency and storage efficiency, security, user/administrator experience, public cloud integration, and data governance.
