WorkForce Uses Druva to Backup and Centralize Data Protection for Cloud Applications

Druva Provides Centralized Protection for Office 365, G Suite and End-user Device Data Around the Globe

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 1, 2017) - Druva, the leader in cloud data protection and management, today announced that WorkForce Software, a provider of enterprise workforce management solutions, has adopted Druva to protect its critical business data. Before adopting Druva, WorkForce had been protecting Office 365 and other end-user data with legacy software that required manual backup and archiving. The company required a solution that would centralize all essential data in the cloud, allow easy backup and recovery, and reduce the overall IT workload, while allowing compliance with a myriad of regional data privacy regulations. Druva automates backup and archival of Office 365 data to keep information secure and dramatically reduce labor costs, while adapting to international residency regulations.

"WorkForce has grown rapidly, with dozens of offices opening across the globe. Additionally, we made an acquisition that brought a flood of new international users," said Peter Webber, director of IT operations at WorkForce Software. "We rely on Office 365 to house critical corporate data and collaborative projects. With Druva, we can ensure that our data is protected and accessible, and Druva's cloud platform makes it simple to scale as our business expands. Now, key management functions can be performed with just a few clicks, saving time and making compliance considerably easier."

Diverse data residency laws create compliance challenges for global companies operating in Europe and other regions. Druva's granular privacy framework makes it straightforward to conform to these policies, so WorkForce is able to easily ensure data in new markets is protected and stored as required by law. Druva integrates with a number of cloud applications used in businesses, and WorkForce opted to protect G Suite data in addition to Office 365 for comprehensive, centralized data management.

Webber reports that WorkForce has eliminated nearly all the manual labor spent on backing up Office 365 data, saving approximately 50 to 75 percent of the time for full-time IT managers. Since adopting Druva, WorkForce has also benefited from:

  • 360-degree protection: Druva provides comprehensive backup and archival for data in Office 365, G Suite, Box, and Salesforce, as well as endpoints. This unified approach simplifies management and increases visibility into data activities.
  • On-demand global scale and data residency compliance: Designed for enterprises, Druva's cloud platform easily expands into new regions with privacy controls that enable compliance with regional data regulations.
  • Unified data repository: Centralized data management provides IT with increased visibility and control into end-user data, such as automatically identifying at-rest sensitive data risks and automated legal hold workflows for all end-user data.

"Today's growing enterprises realize that cloud-based SaaS applications are revolutionizing business, but these alone are not enough," said Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva. "The loss of critical data is devastating for any organization, and corporate data in these applications must be protected from loss or breach. Druva addresses this challenge and keeps corporate information secure and manageable across platforms, users, and countries."
