Druva Eases Enterprise Endpoint eDiscovery

Druva Eases Enterprise Endpoint eDiscovery

Enterprises use Druva inSync for IT-managed file sharing and data loss prevention. The new data governance enhancements built into Druva's inSync software are intended to streamline the eDiscovery process, including rapid response to legal requests, as well as special features for dealing with an increasingly mobile workforce.
 



Data protection provider Druva has launched what is says is the market’s first eDiscovery enablement solution for files stored on enterprise endpoints. The new solution comes as an upgrade to Druva's popular inSync endpoint data protection and governance platform.

With the new capabilities, inSync can simplify eDiscovery by enabling organizations to identify endpoint content and custodians across all enterprise-owned devices, as well as employee-owned devices. The system can capture and place legal holds on relevant data, and support ingestion into eDiscovery systems for review and analysis.

Druva estimates that the new functionality will dramatically reduce eDiscovery costs, which are expected to surge from $5.5 billion in 2013 to $9.8 billion by 2017. The new features also extend inSync’s governance and compliance capabilities with mobile device management (MDM) and the ability to track the location and movement of all endpoint data across devices and users through a central repository.

These features are especially important in today's world of BYOD (bring your own device), where employees and other enterprise users can have data stored on and transmitted over a variety of personal devices.

Mobility Challenges

Druva CEO Jaspreet Singh talks about the challenge for enterprises when eDiscovery is necessary. The mobile nature and computing habits of today's mobile workforce, he explains, place a difficult burden on enterprises in terms of securing, accessing, and sometimes even locating endpoint data that can be distributed across thousands of end user devices.

"These challenges undermine litigation preparedness because of the absence of a unified record of endpoint data and clear audit trails, which in turn make it extremely costly to identify and capture the data for eDiscovery," said Singh.

The new data governance enhancements built into Druva's inSync software are intended to streamline the eDiscovery process by using the platform's endpoint data-capture and traceability functions. The system also provides specific tools to enable rapid response to legal requests.

Compliance and Backup Challenges

Data protection analyst Jason Buffington at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) reports that 'Improving Data Backup' and 'Regulatory Compliance' are among the top investments planned by IT decision makers in 2014. However, not everyone understands how much important data is stored on endpoint devices as opposed to being stored on enterprise servers.

"Governance features like compliance and eDiscovery need to be an integral part of the endpoint data protection strategy," Buffington said. "Being able to deploy these functions within an integrated system simplifies the IT infrastructure, lowers IT administration costs, and expedites compliance and discovery processes." (continued...)
