Druva delivers new info management platform

Cloud data protection and information management firm Druva has unveiled its eponymously named Druva Cloud Platform. The technology is intended to solve the increasing data risks posed by the continued fragmentation and growth of data.

Druva says its open architecture and APIs enable businesses to extract greater value from stored data. The firm is focused on information management challenges including: compliance, retention, legal and analytics across disparate sources.

Silo pains

The assertion here is that a large gap exists due to legacy on-premises technologies as these create data management silos, increase infrastructure complexity and cost.

“The industry demands a new approach to information management that enhances visibility, reduces data risks and minimises the resources required. The Druva Cloud Platform addresses this by enabling a cloud-first design that ushers in a new era of IT, ” said Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva. “Druva’s open architecture and APIs enable better utilisation and understanding of stored data, and an extensive ecosystem of cloud-first partners better enables this for customers. The announcement of the Druva Platform signals that we are not only strengthening product capabilities to address broader enterprise needs, but also further solidifying Druva’s position as a market leader.”

Multiple data sources

The Druva Cloud Platform attempts to address these modern information management challenges by  consolidating, auditing and indexing data from multiple enterprise sources.

This includes servers, cloud applications, desktops, laptops and mobile devices.

According to a press statement, “Druva’s expanding enterprise cloud-first partner ecosystem of 20 premium partners ensures organizations have multiple ways to view, interact and manage business data over time. Partners includes Legal Hold management and eDiscovery review, log analysis, reporting, mobile device management, single sign-on and managed service providers, and companies such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.”

The firm insists that Druva’s open APIs enable organisations to address a broader range of information, security and system management needs – enabling the movement of what was once an on-premises technology ecosystem to a 100 percent cloud-based ecosystem.
