Collaborative Solutions was already using Druva to back up 1,200 endpoints. It made sense to expand its use of the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud, but Tucker wanted to make sure it was the right solution.
“I had non-negotiables, and one of those was multi-cloud backup management from a single console,” Tucker said. “Druva was one of the few vendors that could protect both cloud and endpoints with that single pane of glass view. Plus, Druva already had established relationships with all our SaaS vendors, so we knew it would integrate seamlessly.”
Druva also met Tucker’s other requirements, like a solution delivered as-a-service and built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) — a separate platform from Microsoft Azure. One of the features where Druva stood out against the competition was with SharePoint. Druva’s nested data and retention permissions were a big differentiator from other solutions Tucker evaluated.
“We had a great experience with our endpoint backup, so extending our Druva partnership to include Microsoft 365 and Salesforce data was the natural next step,” Tucker said.
The team conducted a proof of concept with a few small device refreshes to see how Druva performed. Tucker knew smaller-scale restorations would be a good indicator of the reliability of the backups overall.
“It gave us confidence that if anything were to happen and we needed to restore data for our cloud resources, we could,” Tucker said. “We know ransomware attacks aren’t going anywhere, and we need to make sure if we are affected by ransomware, we can recover our data.”
