Druva Named a Visionary in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions

Recognized for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute with a Unique SaaS Delivery Model that Offers Simplicity, Security, and Scale

SUNNYVALE, Calif. ‒ July 21, 2021 ‒ Druva Inc., a leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner as a Visionary in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions.¹ The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute, and marks Druva’s first inclusion in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. We believe Druva’s inclusion underscores its commitment to deliver a radically simplified, modern SaaS based approach to data protection, and reflects the shifting landscape as organizations increasingly demand SaaS-first solutions to enhance business agility and transform data into a defining asset.

The combination of accelerating cloud migrations, rising cyber threats, and growing adoption of SaaS applications requires a new approach and a modern data protection platform that brings the simplicity, scale and security of cloud to all aspects of enterprise data. Druva’s SaaS platform simplifies backup, recovery and disaster recovery by removing traditional barriers and costs to deploy, manage, and scale data protection globally. As businesses face a growing number of threats and compliance regulations, Druva Cloud Platform’s metadata pipeline helps ensure data is readily available when businesses need it most, while its resilient architecture and security workload orchestration helps thousands of customers enhance detection, reduce data loss, and accelerate recovery.  

“We believe the role of cloud technology will only continue to expand as businesses increasingly enjoy the benefits of resilience, agility, and cost efficiency shared infrastructure offers,” said Jaspreet Singh, CEO and Founder, Druva. “Like every other industry, data protection must evolve to meet this moment, and as a leading cloud data protection platform, Druva was designed with today’s cloud era in mind. We are thrilled to be recognized as a Visionary by Gartner and are ready to help even more companies shed costly hardware, navigate their cloud migration, and prepare for whatever comes next.”
