Druva Debuts Protection for Cloud Data

Mitch Wagner

Druva on Thursday introduced a service designed to allow enterprises to back up and protect data in multiple public, hybrid and private clouds.

The migration to cloud broke enterprises' methods of backing up data to clusters of on-premises servers. And enterprises are facing new and severe attacks such as ransomware. The new Druva Cloud Platform is designed to help with both problems.

Druva Cloud Platform -- which the company touts as "data management-as-a-service" -- combines multiple existing products to form centralized administration and management.

Druva Cloud Platform provides backup, to Amazon S3 or Microsoft Azure, of data located on laptops, desktops, mobile devices and other endpoints. It also backs up on-premises servers. And it backs up cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365.

The service simplifies data protection, with a single login and URL for access and long-term management, and saves 60% or more by eliminating hardware needs, Druva Chief Marketing Officer Matthew Morgan tells Enterprise Cloud News.

Druva Cloud Platform protects against ransomware and other threats by providing a virtual firewall to separate production data from archives, and blocking attackers from crawling data looking for vulnerabilities, Morgan says.

The service provides "infinite scalability" because it runs in the cloud without needing to buy additional hardware to expand, Morgan said.

Druva provides deduplication to reduce data volumes by 90% or more, and passes that savings on to the customer.

Druva Cloud Platform also provides governance for compliance with legal and regulatory requirements; and data intelligence for anomaly detection, such as unauthorized data encryption, that might signal attack. It provides RESTful APIs for access from other applications.

Druva says it competes with on-premises backup hardware, such as Veritas, as well as next-generation hyperconverged storage solutions such as Nutanix.

Despite Druva's dismissal of Veritas as an on-premises provider, Veritas last month introduced a suite of services designed to help enterprises stay on top of proliferating data, handling management, backup, business continuity, archiving, compliance, across the cloud and on premises, in a single package.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
