End Point Backup – Druva

Case Studies

A specialty biopharmaceutical company, engaged in the research and development, manufacture, sale, and distribution of pharmaceutical products.

The Challenge

Being in a highly regulated industry our client needed to mitigate challenges faced with data and document retention to satisfy legal and compliance requirements all while delivering a sustainable end point service to meet current and future business needs. This included:

  • Satisfying the enterprise mandate for infinite data retention & recovery.
  • Productivity: IOS device backup capability is becoming a must have both from a legal and business productivity point of view.
  • Technological Sophistication: The current backup solution(s) employed was not designed to handle end-point backup complexities.
  • Mobility: Users are becoming increasingly mobile, endpoint backup needs to cater to the dynamic and unpredictable online/offline schedules of the mobile workforce while maintaining security & legal guidelines.
  • Capacity: Exploding storage demands and bandwidth limitations continued to impede the ability to service business needs on time.
  • Ease of Use: Users expect non-intrusive backup and recoverability.
  • E-Discovery:
    • Function that allows easy e-discovery for compliance, federated search & support of legal hold.
    • Self-service capability to control the collection & preservation of data in scope without intervention from operation.
