“We needed a unified platform to manage different workloads – something that would let security teams stop playing a game of alert whack-a-mole and instead focus on managing the risks unique to their business”

According to Gartner, Inc., the SaaS applications market is expected to reach a total spend of $117.7 billion in 2021¹. This, combined with the firm’s forecast that less than 50 percent of an enterprise’s data will reside in a traditional data center by 2022², means organizations increasingly require a new, modern approach to manage their ever-growing data sprawl. While organizations rush to migrate to myriad cloud-based applications, insufficient cloud data protection and management can expose businesses to substantial cyber risk, compliance liabilities, and lost customer trust. SaaS applications such as Microsoft 365 and Salesforce offer limited but expensive data protection capabilities, signaling the need for customers to manage the process independently in order to ensure viable data recovery. The Druva Cloud Platform helps enterprises overcome such challenges and gain greater control over their SaaS data through a secure and unified approach. Now, businesses can protect and manage their data in the same place it’s being created — in the cloud.

“Organizations continue to expedite deployments of SaaS applications, but there is a disconnect between creating data within these services and the expectation it is sufficiently backing up this sensitive data,” said Prem Ananthakrishnan, Vice President of Products, Druva. “Relying on a service’s data retention policy is not an effective data protection strategy, and the reality is very few of these services include SLAs for protecting customer data. With Druva, teams can ensure critical data is available whether it’s to protect against unplanned data loss, recover from ransomware attacks, meet compliance and applicable regulations, or comply with potential legal hold and audit requests.”
