Druva recently announced that its inSync endpoint data protection and governance platform has been recognized with the highest product rating out of seven solutions examined in Gartner, Inc.’s 2013 "Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Endpoint Backup" report. inSync also achieved the highest mobile-workforce-centric score and an “excellent” rating for product viability, based on Gartner’s assessment of Druva's ability to enhance and support the product over its expected lifecycle.

What's unique about Druva's platform is its ability to integrate automated endpoint backup, IT-managed file sharing, encryption, and other data loss prevention capabilities. It also produces a centralized audit trail of all data content and movement with federated search for governance, compliance, and e-discovery.

In addition, the inSync platform creates a master record of all endpoint data that enables end users to access any file remotely, plus easy content recovery in the event of device loss or theft.

Handling BYOD Security Risks

In its "Critical Capabilities" report, Gartner compared seven endpoint backup products in two common use cases: mobile-workforce-centric and office-workforce-centric. The products were analyzed based on 11 critical capabilities, with the goal of helping IT leaders narrow their enterprise endpoint backup product shortlists.

The capabilities considered in the report included PC OS diversity, PC content restore/migration, mobile device support, scalability, data reduction techniques, performance, security, user experience, back-end server/storage capabilities, proven cloud presence, and e-discovery functions.

According to the report, “The increased mobile work options and adoption of BYOD [bring your own device] are increasing security risks. As a result, we are seeing greater interest in deploying endpoint backup from large organizations, including well-known technology companies."

The Gartner report went on to say, "These companies realize that increased workforce mobility heightens data loss risks, as more employees store their data locally on their endpoints. The old way of either ignoring endpoint backup or forcing users to write to a corporate network share is no longer valid.”

A Necessary Part of Risk Management

Endpoint backup is no longer an option for many companies, the report concludes, it’s a necessary part of risk management.

The reason Druva's inSync scored so well in the Gartner comparison, is because Druva’s approach goes "a step farther by unifying backup, sync and share, DLP and data governance in a single product."

Jaspreet Singh, Druva founder and CEO explained, inSync makes it "easier for IT staff to manage, easier for end users to navigate," and it dramatically reduces data storage and bandwidth requirements through global deduplication, along with providing significant cost savings.

Singh said Druva is "the first and only vendor to adopt this strategy, and we believe it is the only one that makes sense for organizations grappling with the need to bring the data on disparate devices under control.”

Druva has more than 2,100 customers and protects roughly 2 million endpoints across 76 countries, with offices in the US, UK, and India.

The Gartner report, titled "Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Endpoint Backup," was published October 2013, by Pushan Rinnen and Dave Russell. The full report can be accessed from Druva's website.
