What makes Druva ideal for protecting Google Workspace data?
Backup and retention 100% in the cloud
Google Workspace files are backed up directly to the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud on AWS. As a 100% SaaS platform, Druva customers are freed from additional cloud storage or hardware costs, as well as needing to manage or update software. IT can then shift its focus from managing the day-to-day needs of the platform to higher-value initiatives. Agentless architecture improves recovery performance and avoids taxing WAN bandwidth or latency. Druva offers optional unlimited or customizable data retention for Google Workspace to meet data retention and compliance needs.
Accelerated recovery to meet the strictest RPO/RTO requirements
An end user or admin can search for files or view their Drive exactly how it looked at any point in time before restoring directly into their Google account. Admins have the flexibility to restore Drive files into whichever account they prefer. Druva APIs enable third-party applications to restore objects programmatically, eliminating the need for manual intervention.
This solution is particularly effective at negating the effects of ransomware and other cyber threats. Learn more.
Air-tight security and privacy
Druva is compliant with many of the strictest regulations today, including HIPAA, FedRAMP, and more. Druva-managed keys use enterprise-grade digital envelope encryption for data in transit (256-bit TLS) and at rest (AES 256-bit), meeting the highest levels of data security and privacy for your Google Workspace backup data. Alternatively, customers have the option to use their own AWS Keys to secure backup sets or create Global or Profile admins to support the delegation of backup and restore responsibilities to prevent data loss attributed to disgruntled employees/rogue admins.

Multi-layered ransomware defense
To recover from data corruption of customers’ Google Workspace environment, Druva provides a “data cocoon” — true isolation of backup data from customer-controlled storage environments. In addition, unlimited retention for Google Workspace enables ransomware recovery from a clean snapshot, even if the malware has been present in your environment and infecting data for months. Take an in-depth look at how Druva boosts enterprise data resiliency.
eDiscovery and legal hold without the complexity or cost
Unified legal hold management enables the proactive collection and preservation of Google Workspace and endpoint data, and its electronic chain of custody until it is extracted, processed, and analyzed in an eDiscovery platform. Druva integrates with market-leading, cloud-native eDiscovery tools to seamlessly collect, preserve, and upload data relevant to legal matters into eDiscovery platforms for review, analysis, and production.
Users pre-cull eDiscovery data by dimensions such as time range and keywords, so that only the most relevant, minimized data set is provided for downstream analysis by the legal team. Visit the eDiscovery solution page of the Druva website to learn more.
Proactive and automated compliance monitoring
Druva takes the guesswork out of compliance monitoring with out-of-box, predefined, customizable response templates for potential violations of key global regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, and CCPA, and delivers alerts to quickly remediate violations. Easily customize pre-built compliance templates for global regulation and PII, or create your own templates for governance policies, including regulation or internal data governance policies.
