Druva has announced powerful new capabilities providing industry-leading coverage for cloud workloads, strategic integrations and automated functionality, to accelerate any enterprises’ journey to the cloud. The updates include support for Slack and Microsoft Teams, new advanced backup, recovery and global policy capabilities for AWS workloads, as well as integrations with ServiceNow, Splunk and Okta.
The latest enhancements ensure greater control and protection of data residing across these new cloud workloads, while also making it accessible for critical business insights and analytics.
Organisations are more data-driven than ever, and data is driving core initiatives such as innovation and customer experience. The cloud has become the de-facto environment for these programs, however, the movement of these critical processes to the cloud require the highest level of data protection with thorough and effective security, compliance and workload visibility. Automation then becomes a key factor to delivering value at scale without constant oversight and human effort. With today’s new capabilities, Druva is now delivering the industry’s most comprehensive workload coverage and integration capabilities, empowering customers to yield more from their data through key integrations with automation and visibility components, and delivering the best value from their data at a fraction of the cost of other services.
“Today’s most successful companies find ways to identify and execute game-changing ideas with velocity,” said Mike Palmer, Chief Product Officer, Druva. “IT teams enable velocity by choosing platforms built natively to support integration, automation, security and compliance. Druva’s data protection solutions cover their on-premises and cloud workloads, eliminates costly and frustrating infrastructure management and enables secure and unified access to enterprise data for next generation analytics capabilities and more.”
Now, Druva is bringing enterprises a comprehensive and scalable way to seamlessly protect and utilise data in the same place it’s being created. These new features and support continue Druva’s promise to deliver leading technology for protecting and managing data, no matter where it resides - endpoints, data center or cloud workloads.
In August, Druva announced the industry’s first intelligent storage tiering system, with support across all layers of AWS storage, including Amazon S3, Amazon S3 Glacier and Amazon S3 Glacier Deep Archive. This new capability ensures end-to-end data protection driven by machine learning, policy management via one-click actions across all tiers, and easier management through a central dashboard to manage archiving, deletion and governance processes. Through this automated and intelligent feature, enterprises can ultimately reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) of up to 50%.
“At Okta, we’re on a mission to enable any organisation to securely use any technology,” said Ernesto Tey, VP, Global Strategic Alliances, Okta. “Our integration with Druva provides our joint customers with seamless and secure access to the Druva platform, making it easier for them to protect their most valuable data. In today’s environment of rising malicious attacks and ransomware, backups and archival are becoming critical resources for protection to ensure business continuity in the event of such an attack. By embedding Okta technology into its platform, Druva can focus on its core products while Okta solves for complex identity challenges.”
“Data has become the fuel to drive innovation, and the exponential increase of data expected in the next several years means there is no end in sight,” said Phil Goodwin, research director, IDC. “But as this data becomes more critical to business success, it’s protection also becomes increasingly critical. Given the sheer scale and disparate data sources, Druva’s centralised platform, ability to integrate with other popular SaaS solutions, and scalable protection could be a compelling benefit as more enterprises migrate workloads to the cloud.”
