Best in class support for protecting cloud workloads and continued product innovations lead to industry accolade for second consecutive year

SUNNYVALE, California ‒ March 11, 2019 ‒ Druva, Inc., the leader in cloud data protection and management, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Druva in its annual Security 100 list in the Identity Management and Data Protection category. Druva was recognized for enhancements to deliver best in class data protection and governance for cloud workloads, as well as for the acquisition of Druva CloudRanger, Druva’s data protection solution for AWS workloads. Together these advancements and continued innovation makes Druva the industry’s first and only SaaS platform able to support data sources on the edge, on-premises and in cloud workloads.

As organizations transform their business with cloud, Druva delivers data protection and management across edge, on-premises and cloud workloads, eliminating the dependence on complex infrastructure, through a consumption-based model.

“CRN’s 2019 Security 100 list identifies top technology companies that are meeting high levels of demand with the most innovative security solutions on the market, enabling businesses to grow uninterrupted,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The core elements of today’s businesses all depend upon reliable security-first solutions.”

We want to thank our partners for their continued support and collaboration as we continue to grow market share and develop our best-in-class data management and protection platform.”
