SANTA CLARA, Calif. ‒ March 28, 2022 ‒ Druva Inc. today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Druva among the leading identity management and data protection companies of 2022 as part of its annual Security 100 list. Additionally, Robert Brower, senior vice president of global partners and alliances, has been named to CRN’s 2022 Channel Chiefs list while Druva has been recognized within the 2022 CRN Partner Program Guide. Together, these awards are the latest recognition of Druva’s industry-leading SaaS solution which empowers partners to advance their customers’ data resiliency with minimal upfront investment and zero supply-chain dependencies.
As organizations have faced a surging number of internal and external cyber threats over the last two years, Druva has strengthened its commitment to enhancing data resiliency. Earlier this year, Druva introduced the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud, the industry’s first at-scale SaaS solution designed to radically simplify data protection, streamline data governance, and gain data visibility as cloud adoption accelerates. Leveraging a cloud-native, centralized, and automated approach to data protection and disaster recovery, the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud is the first solution of its kind which is designed to help enterprises manage data that has become increasingly fragmented across multi-cloud environments.
“As the world of business continues to accelerate, channel partners play a critical role in helping our customers and prospects stay ahead of the curve, secure data, and combat an increasing number of threats internally and outside their organization, including ransomware,” said Brower. “As supply chain issues continue, we are dedicated to helping our partners win a disproportionate share of market and wallet with a completely SaaS-based solution that can be deployed in minutes and is accessible from anywhere. I’m honored to be recognized as a 2022 CRN Channel Chief, for Druva’s continued recognition by CRN, and by the excitement and passion we continue to build in the partner community.”
In the last year, Brower and his team have introduced a number of initiatives to help partners navigate today’s landscape, including the launch of the Druva Managed Service Provider (MSP) program. The program, introduced last June, brings partners a SaaS delivery model which offers zero-touch onboarding and no infrastructure to build or maintain. Leveraging this approach, MSPs can help accelerate their customers’ cloud transformation while improving time to revenue and maintaining high, recurring margins. The program has already experienced significant growth, tripling in size in the first six months, as the demand for Druva’s resilient, simplified data protection service continues to surge across the global channel ecosystem. As further recognition, the program was recognized as a finalist in the MSP/MSSP Platform category by the CRN Tech Innovator Awards in November 2021.
