Druva's inSynch product has been revved to add tablets and smartphones to its existing laptop data protection scheme and bring them all into a uniform enterprise data protection and security scheme.

Both Android and IOS tablets and smartphones are supported with a single user profile covering a user's bring your own device (BYOD) gear. Their contents can be backed up to a data centre or to the cloud or a combination of the two. in both deployment modes, Druva provides WAN optimisation, data analytics and search.

The user can see and access the contents of all their devices on all their devices and from anywhere on the web. The product provides file versions through “restore points”, which are point-in-time snapshots of all backed up data. Each restore point can be browsed and searched like regular folders.

The inSynch product also provides data loss prevention with the ability to wipe data on stolen or lost laptops. Data can be encrypted and geo-located, and alerts notify the inSync administrator of unauthorised access and, it's claimed, "virtually eliminate the risks of unauthorised access to the data."

Dtuva's inSync scales up to 100,000 devices in an on-premises configuration, with management from a single console. A HyperCache feature preserves storage capacity through in-memory and global source-based data deduplication. Support for solid state drives (SSDs) increases system performance. Druva also provides service-level agreements (SLAs) for durability and reliability.

Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva, sang the praises of the latest inSynch product:

“Today, many enterprises cannot track how many mobile devices a staffer uses on the job, much less protect that user’s data. That's why we introduced a ‘manage the user’ model that has put user-device management and security in the hands of IT. Today’s ‘manage the device’ model has become obsolete.”

Druva inSync licensing is based on a per-user model allowing any number of devices per user. Pricing for the inSync cloud product is $6/user/month, and the on-premises version is $4/user/month. The product will be available in April 2012. ®
