Druva announced today that its inSync endpoint data protection and governance platform has been named the Best Cloud Storage & Backup Solution in the Software & Information Industry Association’s 2014 CODiE Awards. inSync’s cloud deployment option overcomes the usual limitations of cloud-based endpoint backup with unique engineering that ensures data privacy, global scalability and rapid transfer speeds.
The honor marks Druva inSync’s fourth in three months, including a Gold award as Enterprise Product of the Year in the Best in Biz Awards 2014 EMEA, a Silver in the BYOD Security category in Info Security Products Guide’s 2014 Global Excellence Awards, and three finalist slots in Network Products Guide’s 2014 Hot Companies and Best Product Awards competition with winners to be announced in June. inSync has also been the #1 analyst-rated solution in its class for the last two years.
“Protecting data on end user devices is critical, but IT teams looking for cloud-based solutions have been stymied by slow backup speeds, localized backup that lacks scalability as well as redundancy, and a concern about potential data access by cloud service providers,” said Jaspreet Singh, Druva founder and CEO. “inSync solves these problems with patented global data deduplication, multi-zone redundancy across multiple data centers, and two-factor encryption that prevents Druva from accessing encryption keys even under subpoena. This latest award reflects these cloud benefits as well as broad functionality that goes far beyond backup to support security, compliance and governance needs.”
Druva inSync uniquely integrates automated endpoint data backup, data loss prevention, IT-managed file sharing and data governance in a single solution that lowers IT overhead and reduces bandwidth and storage requirements by 80%. It currently protects data across more than 2 million BYOD and corporate-owned desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones for over 3,000 organizations in 76 countries.
The platform transparently creates a master record of all endpoint data that allows easy tracing of any file on any device via federated search, easy file recovery from device loss or theft, quick restoration of document libraries and settings on replacement devices, and remote file access from any device without moving files between devices or into a consumer file sharing service. inSync also enables IT teams to control and trace file sharing activity, thwart data loss on mobile devices, provide easy endpoint data collection and legal hold for eDiscovery, and more.
