Initially, the company had implemented Druva inSync
as a solution to backup the company endpoints and was extremely satisfied with its performance and ease of use. Webber quickly realized that the product could provide the same advantages when protecting their cloud application data as well. “We were looking to unify some of the ways we backed stuff up, so the ability to…better serve our Office 365 environment was a key driver.” As time went on, it became clear that inSync might prove to be the ‘magic bullet’ the company was looking for.
A key consideration for WorkForce Software was the ability of inSync to scale along with the organization— incorporating global offices and new cloud business tools— and ensure that data residency requirements were being met. Webber described how Druva was able to meet these needs: “[Druva’s] ability to work with various cloud services and the expected growth of those additional services was pretty enticing… and we were able to add backups for our Google accounts that we were never backing up…because we didn’t really have a way to do that.”
One of Webber’s favorite aspects of the solution is its ease of use. “It’s almost just a ‘set it and forget it’ infomercial thing,” he says. “You install it, you let it run, and then it does its thing and you don’t have to deal with it. And there is no managing of data, there is no managing anything—it’s just going to be covered, because Druva handles the hard kind of stuff…all you have to do is get it installed, and you are done.” Key management functions can be performed with just a few clicks, saving time and making compliance considerably easier. Webber says that when a request for data comes to him, “I need something quickly, [and] I get it back. That’s saved us some tickets for sure.”
