Druva Marketing

Welcome to our monthly wrap-up series, Druva Rewind! In this edition, we’ll look back at all the biggest cloud data backup and recovery stories from April.

Druva Gets a Makeover — Explore the Platform’s New Dashboard

Druva has updated its dashboard to provide an improved in-product experience for its customers. The redesigned dashboard provides a workload-centric view of all workloads and services that a customer has configured, giving them an overview of important metrics such as total resources configured, their backup size, last backup status, critical alerts, and more.

The revamped dashboard allows customers to quickly navigate to the pages they visit most frequently with a single click, and also provides a range of features such as a sunburst chart to view data protection summaries, data governance, and cyber resilience status, critical alerts, backup data trends, and license information. Additionally, customers can track the status of all existing support cases on the dashboard and find a list of all partner integrations, simplifying business operations and extending data protection policies into their existing solution stack.

Druva Named a StateRAMP Authorized Vendor

Druva has become the first and only software-as-a-service (SaaS) data protection vendor to be approved as a StateRAMP Authorized Vendor. The authorization gives procurement and government officials greater confidence in a service provider's cybersecurity capabilities and provides a central location for sourcing StateRAMP-verified infrastructure-, software-, and platform-as-a-service solutions. Druva, which supports hundreds of thousands of end-users with its FedRAMP-authorized cloud, is now listed on the StateRAMP vendor repository in the authorized product list.

The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud is hosted on the AWS GovCloud and serves more than 40 government agencies, including NASA and the National Institutes of Health. With the rise of ransomware attacks on state, local, and education (SLED) government entities, cybersecurity continues to be a key procurement trend in SLED, and grants by the Department of Homeland Security are likely to fuel this trend further in 2023.
