Powering cybersecurity all year long

Druva Marketing

Every October, companies take time to recognize Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Cybersecurity is always an important topic, but is something that can easily be lost within the shuffle of everyday business focusing on product development, marketing efforts, sales, and ultimately, company growth. However, traditional thinking has been abandoned in 2020, and cybersecurity is now of the utmost importance to every organization. Not only are threats continuing to grow, but as our remote working environment extends month after month, new attack vectors and opportunities continue to be exposed.

As the leading cloud data protection and management platform, Druva was uniquely designed for the cloud era – and this moment we are in – from the ground-up. Druva is built entirely on AWS and offered as-a-Service, delivering globally accessible, infinitely scalable and completely autonomous enterprise data resiliency. With features including envelope encryption and security certifications, including FedRAMP ATO, FIPS 140-2, and authorization to operate on AWS GovCloud, Druva is among the most tested and secure data protection platforms available today.

With all of this in mind, Druva has been named the “Endpoint Security Solution Provider of the Year” by the 2020 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards Program. The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including cloud security, threat detection, risk management, fraud prevention, mobile security, email security and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.

In the last several months alone, both Gartner and IDC have highlighted Druva as a key solution to help businesses navigate the challenges of COVID-19, and since Druva never requires hardware or software, customers are able to drive down costs by up to 50 percent by freeing themselves from the burden of unnecessary capacity planning and software management.

Our security team continuously looks for ways to enhance the security of user data, and our organizational security posture. Featuring end-to-end encryption, automated monitoring to flag potential risks and anomalous data activity and proprietary entropy-based machine learning algorithms help IT admins monitor, detect, and counter potentially malicious activities. In addition, powerful federated search capabilities, API integrations with industry-leading vendors like FireEye, Palo Alto Networks and Splunk further strengthen correlation and accelerate incident response. And even if malicious actors are successful, Druva’s naturally air-gapped architecture and envelope encryption design ensure backups cannot be accessed or repurposed by criminals.

Threats will continue to attempt to divide and conquer us. As businesses continue to push to meet employee needs, considering security implications is paramount. While cybersecurity should be a key part of your daily and monthly organizational structure, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a perfect opportunity for everyone to take a step back and re-evaluate your organization’s and individual approach to cybersecurity.
