Druva Joins Cloud Security Alliance To Support Cloud-First Security And Data Protection Strategies
As Growth of Cloud Application Usage Grows and Companies Shift Their Data Protection Strategies to Cloud, Partnership Aims to Support Customer Success and Best Practices Around Cloud and Security
Druva, the leader in cloud data protection and information management, today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. Working as part of the CSA, Druva aims to educate and help companies make the most of Cloud Computing to secure their data.
Druva is the first company to offer a ‘Cloud-First’ approach to data protection, enabling customers to manage and protect all their critical information in the Cloud while having the confidence that data is secure and managed according to their specific business requirements. As more companies look to migrate their IT systems to the Cloud to reduce costs and ease data management, Druva’s approach supports companies in both using the Cloud for data protection and to protect critical data held in Cloud applications.
Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva, said: “Cloud is becoming a de facto operating system for businesses in the 21st century. As more essential business applications move to the Cloud, taking a ‘Cloud-First’ approach to protecting this critical data will be needed. Cloud-based data protection can provide protection for data across its lifecycle as well as providing multiple copies of data to guard against issues like encryption or corruption of backups. At Druva, we support companies in shifting their data protection strategies to the Cloud, as well as ensuring that the data held within Cloud applications rather than in traditional data centres is treated equally when it comes to security, auditing and archival.”
He goes on to say: “We have seen the impact that large scale ransomware attacks can have on businesses worldwide, and it’s essential that organizations prepare their strategies in advance. Cloud can make this process easier, removing obstacles like cost and management headaches. We look forward to collaborating with the CSA to improve security for everyone.”
“We’re thrilled that Druva has partnered with CSA to help educate IT professionals on the potential for security and cloud computing,” said Jim Reavis, CEO at CSA. “We aim to provide everyone in IT with access to the latest expertise and education around security, so that organizations can realize the results that cloud security can deliver. By tapping into this expanding community, IT professionals can put the most effective security processes and solutions in place for their organizations, powered by and in the cloud.”
Druva recently announced its expansion globally based on public cloud service locations based in Canada, the UK and Hong Kong, as this would support customers' data regulation challenges around the world. The expansion is a result of increasing global demand for cloud-based data protection and the addition of these locations furthers Druva’s mission to support an increasing amount of global organizations in their ambitions to manage and protect data as Cloud-First organizations.
