Mountain View, Calif. – May 8, 2012

Druva, a leader in unified enterprise solutions for endpoint backup, enterprise mobility and data loss prevention, today announced that it has been named a “Cool Vendor” in the Cool Vendors in Storage Technologies*, 2012, report by Gartner Inc.

The report noted that Druva solutions offer a number of unique features, particularly in the areas of security and scalability, such as the ability to support up to 10,000 users per server and up to 10 servers per installation, SAML integration two-factor authentication, and DLP capabilities. Gartner also reported that customers like Druva inSync’s manageability and mass-deployment capabilities, as well as its ability to manage CPU utilization and bandwidth.

“Being named a ‘Cool Vendor’ by Gartner is an incredible honor for our company,” said Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva. “This recognition of our endpoint data protection solution underscores the increasing need of enterprises to effectively manage the data backup and protection issues created by the use of mobile devices in the global workforce.”
