“We finally have the capability that, when human resources (HR) asks us to restore a mailbox from two weeks ago, we can do it quickly,” Nigel said. “Before, it would have taken hours of work.”
In fact, the team can restore data 12x faster with Druva — easily meeting SLAs and facilitating Nigel’s DR and BCP requirements for recovery. In addition, it’s far simpler to locate data on a granular level. “Druva makes everything easier because we can go to a specific point in time,” Nigel said. “With journaling, we had to trawl through reams of data to find what we needed.”
Now, the team has 100% visibility of Microsoft Exchange data for staff across the globe, which helps it facilitate compliance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA).
When the pandemic struck in 2020, the team enabled a seamless transition to remote working. “We had the right tools in place, like Druva, so employees could carry on as normal. Endpoints and Microsoft 365 data are secure and restorable, and this helps our team deliver a solid DR/BCP strategy,” said Nigel.
Moving forward, Nigel’s team is continuing to migrate the remaining on-premises infrastructure to the cloud. The team is moving away from roaming profiles in specific legacy operations and plans to deploy Druva across 1,500 more endpoints.
