The upcoming inSync upgrade v4.5 adds an exciting new feature called “Data Insights”. This one was on my list for a long time, and was actually one of the award winners in the most recent 24hrs Druva Hack-Day events.
Endpoint data is more dispersed and diverse than ever before. Some of our customers are protecting up to 1PB of data with inSync, and one of the key requests we get is to have the tools understand “what” they are backing up and how can they defuse this rapidly expanding data.
This new addition is designed to answer most of these questions with the following features :
- Data Analytics: This lets the admin gain insight into the composition of the backed up data and understand the key trends fueling the growth of data.
- Global Search: Searches the meta-data to find files with certain keywords across the users. It also helps the admin gain access to the data refereed in the results
- Reports: Helps schedule search and analytics and generate custom reports
- APIs & Tools: APIs and different export format to integrate with any existing software
Essentially this is an eDiscoveryLite for enterprise endpoints, and yet again demonstrates our commitment to enterprise endpoints, an area we feel is extremely important but lacking in tools and support.
So far, the feedback from the Data Insights beta has been great. Interestingly, some customers came back with a different use case and requested if this could be combined with our SafePoint product (data loss prevention) or with data sharing, to help the admins better understand the propagation of data and how to secure it.
You can learn more about the product, which is currently free for existing customers, by going to the Advanced Data Insights page.
