James and his leadership team worked together to find a cloud-native backup system. They evaluated several solutions like CrashPlan and Symantec DLO, but the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud was the clear winner based on the simplicity, scale and savings that comes with Druva’s SaaS advantage.
“We are leveraging the Druva Data Resiliency cloud for endpoint backup and data governance for 2,000+ PCs, as well as for device migration and cyber resilience,” James said.
Druva enables remote wipe, the ability to encrypt data on lost or stolen devices, and rapid recovery of devices from snapshots. Hitachi America can automatically manage legal hold requests, migrate end-user data and settings without disrupting business and employee productivity, and recover from ransomware with air-gapped, isolated data.
Joe Jackson, who provides on-site support for Hitachi America group company Sullair, elaborated on how the company has deployed Druva. “New users are imported into the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud via Microsoft Active Directory. It’s very user-friendly and provides the ability to add users manually if needed.”
“Through the user-friendly Druva console, we can see how many backups have been performed on each of the 2,000+ PCs and which devices are active or on legal hold,” Jackson added. “If a PC is broken down, we leverage Druva to seamlessly migrate data to a new device.” According to Jackson, PC data migration with Druva is “one and done.” “Druva has been a lifesaver for us many times. We can refresh endpoints for provisioning much faster now,” he said.
Additionally, Jackson noted that Druva Support is very quick. “I can easily open a ticket, and have a fast response from Druva Support,” he said.
