Sunnyvale, CA (PR Web) April 18, 2013
Druva today introduced free IT-managed endpoint backup for groups of up to 15 business users with a new Group Edition of Druva inSync, its integrated suite of backup, file sharing, data loss prevention and analytics solutions that protects more than one million endpoints for over 1,500 organizations around the world. The free-forever Group Edition of inSync – designed for small teams – provides automatic enterprise-grade backup for any mix of Windows, Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android and/or Windows 8 devices, along with easy remote access to backed-up data from any device equipped with the Druva client.
Backup to the inSync server enables rapid data recovery in the event of device failure, loss or theft. Remote access to backed-up files eliminates the need for end users to move files from one device to another or into an insecure consumer file sharing service for anytime/anywhere availability. These features help protect corporate data from endpoint vulnerabilities, including the risks of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement, while also increasing user productivity.
Both the free Group Edition and the paid enterprise edition offer
- Automated, non-intrusive backups that eliminate work interruptions for end users
- Self-service mobile data access from a simple end user interface
- 90% savings on bandwidth and storage with inSync’s global, app-aware, client-side de-duplication, conserving space on the server where backup files are stored
- Advanced WAN optimization that boosts the speed and efficiency of data transfers
- 20-minute installation of administrative software and near-zero maintenance
- Enterprise-grade security including data encryption in transit and at rest
The enterprise edition also offers optional secure file sharing and data loss prevention (DLP) add-ons that will also be available in future versions of the Group Edition. inSync Share provides a secure, IT-controlled alternative to consumer-grade file sharing services like Dropbox and YouSendIt, including a centralized audit trail of all file sharing activity and automatic file/folder synchronization between devices and users. inSync’s DLP functionality encompasses data encryption, device geo-tracking and remote data delete.
“With nearly one-third of corporate data residing exclusively on laptops, growing business use of tablets and smartphones, and the rise of the mobile workforce increasing the risk of device loss and theft, endpoint protection is becoming increasingly critical. Yet relatively few businesses today have adopted backup solutions to provide a safety net for their data,” said Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva. “Our inSync Group Edition provides a free enterprise-grade solution for small teams to help businesses eliminate hours of data recovery work as well as avoid permanent data loss for a device that goes AWOL.”
The inSync Group Edition is currently available exclusively for on-premise deployment with up to 200GB in storage. Full inSync implementations can also utilize public or private cloud models.
