Improve your business innovation with Druva’s latest release

October 30, 2019 Anwesa Chatterjee, Senior Director, Product Marketing

At Druva, we are always looking to see how we can help our customers innovate faster on their cloud journey to better protect their growing data. Lately, we’ve been quite busy and we’d like to update everyone on the new capabilities launched with the latest release.

It’s not an unknown fact that data is exploding and becoming increasingly complex to protect and manage. In a recent blog, IDC predicts that the collective sum of the world’s data will grow to a 175 ZB by 2025 in 7 years, for a CAGR of 61 percent. So how would IT today, make sure it is able to harness all the data, protect, manage and analyze it all from one place?

What’s new from Druva:

Support for new and emerging SaaS workloads

Druva released support for new workloads and SaaS apps to improve and protect collaboration across organizations. Software As A Service (SaaS) applications such as Office 365, Teams, Slack have been added to Druva’s existing support for Salesforce.com, Google Suite, and Endpoints. Druva offers value-added data enabling services such as legal hold, eDiscovery, and ransomware protection so IT can govern and manage sprawling SaaS apps across the organization.

Improve business continuity with the right DR strategy

Another new feature is Druva’s advanced self-service Disaster Recovery (DR) capability on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to automate DR to the public cloud. DR strategy should be a foundational part of every business continuity plan. Druva can help drive a successful DR strategy through an automated DR with advanced runbook orchestration, single-click recovery, and quick spin-up of secure test/dev environments from production servers.

Maximize business process automation with API-driven integrations

We released a series of significant new integrations based on Druva APIs to automate business processes, user management, and infrastructure analytics – reducing the Mean Time To Resolution (MTTR) for IT infrastructure issues. Using Druva’s RESTful APIs customers can now integrate enterprise apps such as Splunk, ServiceNow, and Okta with underlying Druva notifications, alerts and events, plus seamless user management and onboarding/off-boarding via an embedded experience.

One of the highlights of the digital event was a conversation with Genomic Health on how they are future-proofing their approach to protecting their data centers.

Customer proof point: How Genomic Health is future-proofing Innovation

Craig Guinasso, the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Genomic Health spoke about their cloud journey and their goals for protecting the data that’s key to their research.

Genomic Health is a leading global provider of genomic-based diagnostic tests that address both the overtreatment and optimal treatment of early-stage cancer, one of the most significant issues in healthcare today. Similar to many other companies, Genomic Health is on a cloud journey and is trying to reduce the need to manually and individually manage, protect, and secure their data centers. They want to invest in innovation and transformation and eliminate the time and resources spent on mundane repetitive, high maintenance jobs – so they can maintain business relevance and gain a competitive advantage.

Genomic Health uses Office 365 across the company as a standard productivity and collaboration tool.  Protecting the workforce, employee, company, research and customer data is critical – and given they are on a cloud journey they selected a modern SaaS solution to protect their data. Druva is helping Genomic Health manage and protect their most vital asset – the data that’s key for their research, patents, and discoveries with an easy to use, centralized and cost-effective SaaS solution.

With the latest release, Druva has significantly increased support for SaaS applications with the addition of Office 365, Teams and Slack, introduced advanced self-service disaster recovery, and enabled reduced MTTR with API-enabled integrations.
