Druva Announces Deloitte As 1,000th Customer And Protects Data On More Than 500,000 Endpoints Worldwide

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 29, 2011 – Druva, Inc., a pioneer in enterprise endpoint data protection, today announced it has reached 1,000 enterprise customers worldwide and its inSync solution is now protecting critical data on more than 500,000 endpoints. Recent customer wins include Hearst Corporation, PWC, Deloitte, KPMG and the United Nations. Druva’s inSync software continues to set a new benchmark for enterprise endpoint data protection, including support for smartphones and tablets.

“Prior to deploying inSync, we had nearly 500 users distributed over three locations, which created management challenges with the backup process as well as with bandwidth consumption and end user performance degradation,” said Christakis Themistocli, director of information technology services at Deloitte in Cyprus. “Druva allowed us to consolidate all of our backups and offered a single management interface that could be accessed by multiple administrators. We also solved our bandwidth challenge with inSync’s advanced deduplication technology, which, coupled with minimal incremental backups, meant our end users weren’t affected by backups and neither was our network performance.”

Over the last several months, Druva developed numerous improvements to inSync, with a focus on protecting endpoint data and expanding beyond backup to include these features:

  • inSync Cloud – an enterprise-grade online backup solution that offers secure, lightning-fast backups to a virtual private cloud powered by Amazon Web Services. inSync Cloud offers automatic mass deployment to global laptops, with central management of policies and data across multiple global regions. It also provides high availability, with 99.5 percent uptime and 99.99999 percent durability, making it optimal for large enterprises.
  • SafePoint – a data loss prevention (DLP) solution for laptop computers and other endpoint devices that offers file-level encryption, NSA-class remote data wipe-out and pinpoint device trace. It is proven to reduce total cost of operations by approximately 10 times in comparison with competitive DLP offerings.
  • Advanced Data Insights for E-Discovery – a solution that allows enterprise IT customers to gain increased visibility into data stored and shared across all enterprise endpoints, enabling them to locate files or folders in any device by name, type, recency or size. It also provides a summary of file composition across endpoints by file type and size, as well as of aggregate and per-user storage consumption.

“Druva continues to address the key pain points that enterprises face in protecting one of their most valuable assets – data on mobile devices,” said Robert Amatruda, research director, data protection and recovery, at analyst firm IDC. “Druva adds value by granting administrators key insights into their data while allowing global deployment of their software from a single console, thus simplifying adoption across the enterprise.”

A recent ESG Lab report validated inSync’s claims, including its ease of installation, as well as the benefits of its application-aware global deduplication, WAN optimization and efficient client-side processing, which provides data protection at 90 percent savings in bandwidth and data stored. ESG Lab was able to install a 50MB executable file on the server and configure the network in 20 minutes.

The company also recently announced it received $12 million in a Series B round of funding. The round was led by Nexus Venture Partners; existing investor Sequoia Capital also contributed to the round.
