Druva announced today that its inSync endpoint data protection and governance platform has earned Gold honors as Enterprise Product of the Year in the Best in Biz Awards 2014 EMEA, an independent business awards program covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Druva inSync – the #1 analyst-rated platform in its class for the last two years – help organizations address the security and compliance risks associated with today’s computing habits by enabling a broad range of controls over corporate data distributed across any mix of end user devices.
“Most organizations have no control over endpoint data despite the fact that nearly 30% of corporate information now resides only on employee desktops, laptops and mobile devices. That puts companies at high risk for data loss, compliance violations and other issues that can cause serious business damage,” said Jaspreet Singh, Druva founder and CEO. “This award stems directly from the ability of our inSync platform to mitigate those risks efficiently, cost-effectively and with extended functionality that goes far beyond backup.”
Now protecting more than 2 million endpoints for over 3,000 organizations in 76 countries, the Druva platform uniquely integrates automated endpoint data backup, data loss prevention, IT-managed file sharing and data governance in a single solution that spans BYOD and corporate-owned desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. This integrated strategy simplifies management, reduces IT overhead, and minimizes bandwidth and storage requirements through global data deduplication.
Capabilities range from creating a master record of all endpoint data for governance, file recovery and remote file access purposes, to the ability to control and trace file sharing activity, thwart data loss on mobile devices, and provide easy endpoint data collection and legal hold for eDiscovery. These and other functions help plug critical security, compliance and governance gaps created by the consumerization of IT, workforce mobility and consumer file sharing tools.
