Druva Surpasses 5M Daily Backups Globally as it Celebrates World Backup Day

Druva answers the call of cloud’s defining moment, helping businesses protect data, instant-proof operations, stay resilient and securely manage dispersed workforces

SUNNYVALE, Calif. ‒ March 31, 2020 ‒ Druva, Inc., the leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, today announced the Druva Cloud Platform surpassed 5 million daily backups, reflecting the rapidly expanding scale and customer base of the industry’s leading cloud platform. Additionally, the company is actively managing more than 150PB across 15 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Regions, highlighting the ability of more than 4,000 customers to seamlessly restore data and maintain business continuity with Druva’s comprehensive platform.

As businesses seek to support an increasingly remote workforce, the rapid expansion of endpoints and cloud-based collaboration tools like Microsoft Office365 must be met with robust data protection to safeguard against an increasing number of malicious actors and ransomware attacks. Companies are also being forced to re-evaluate business continuity plans. Cloud’s ability to deliver air-gapped data protection and improved business resiliency while minimizing supply chain impacts make it an ideal choice for minimizing the overall impact of sudden events and unforeseen disasters.

Recognizing the need for additional support as businesses navigate current global challenges, Druva, along with key partners, is offering free endpoint and Office 365 protection services for six months to help businesses stay resilient, protected, and compliant – while allowing employees to safely work remotely for as long as necessary. With no future obligation required and the ability to deploy globally in as little as 15 minutes, organizations can now rest assured remote employee data is safeguarded from internal and external threats. This offer includes:

  • Office 365 protection: Six months of free service for up to 300 employees with a 15GB source data limit per user
  • Endpoint protection: Six months of free service for up to 300 employees with a 50GB source data limit per user

“This World Backup Day, we’re all learning to deal with this new frontier together but there are some things IT teams can do to ensure they remain protected,” said Matt Lindeman, Chief Customer Officer, Druva. “Cloud offers the consistency and capabilities to instant-proof businesses against the next, unforeseen challenge. With no dependency on global supply chains and the ability to access services from anywhere, it is the ultimate contingency plan. Our customers are leveraging Druva’s unique architecture to meet their ever changing business needs, from global events to regional compliance laws, and we will continue supporting them for whatever comes next.”

Since Druva is 100 percent built in the cloud, it has no dependency on hardware or onsite IT staff, can instantly scale based on a customer’s changing needs, and is able to offer robust ransomware protection via a secure, immutable backup and recovery with data isolation. Additionally, with intelligent tiering capabilities of Amazon S3 Storage Classes, users can store data long-term cost-effectively, while maintaining the data’s potential for value-added data services including legal hold, e-Discovery and proactive compliance.
