Life At Druva, News/Trends

Getting Wild with Grumm at Interop!

Last week, we were in Las Vegas for Interop. Many conference attendees stopped by our booth to learn more about Druva and our endpoint data protection and governance platform, inSync. But many of those who stopped hadn’t heard of Druva before—they stopped because of a special guest: Grumm, the data monster.

With his wild hair, oversized height, and lumbering gait, Grumm certainly attracted a lot of attention. But why was he at our booth? We invited Grumm to Interop to show companies about the threats to their corporate data in the wild… data on laptops, smartphones, and tablets that’s at risk outside the safety of the corporate firewall. Whether it’s destroying devices, persuading employees to share their former employers’ data, or hacking unsecured personal file sharing solutions, Grumm does whatever he can to get his hands on corporate data. Companies need to know about the threats to their data in the wild—and the best ways to defend against them.

For the curious attendees who stopped by our booth to meet Grumm, we ran a photo contest on Twitter and Booth visitors were encouraged to snap a picture of themselves with Grumm showing him putting their data at risk – and for doing so, they got a souvenir sticker saying they “got wild with Grumm in Vegas” and were entered into our contest to win great prizes – the grand prize being a 60″ TV.

Here are the 3 winning photos:

1st Place:
TJ Peace, IT Director from Syracuse City

2nd Place:
Bill Doyle, Storage Admin from AEG Worldwide

3rd Place:
Lucian Ailincai, IT Manager from Advanced Electronic Solutions

Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth to meet Grumm and learn about Druva. We’re looking forward to attending more events in the future, and we have a feeling that after Interop, Grumm is going to join us as well.
