Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
Druva today announced the addition of new data governance and IT-managed file sharing features to its inSync endpoint data protection platform to improve enterprise control over data residing on laptops, tablets and smartphones. The upgrades are part of more than 70 enhancements to inSync – an integrated suite of data backup, file sharing, data loss prevention and analytics solutions designed to protect and govern data on any mix of endpoint devices – that also include new tools for simplifying OS migration, ensuring high availability and expediting mass deployments.
New inSync data governance features include an admin audit trail that joins an existing end user activity log, providing 360° visibility into all inSync operations. New file sharing controls increase security by making it possible to impose limits on shared file access. With these abilities, enterprises that utilize inSync to manage and protect endpoint data can now:
These upgrades reflect ongoing concern over data breaches caused by insiders. A recent Ponemon Institute survey reported that 69% of companies that have experienced serious data security breaches attribute those leaks to either malicious employee actions or non-malicious employee error. A separate analysis of insider data breaches by the CERT Insider Threat Center at Carnegie Mellon’s Software Engineering Institute determined that 86% of the insiders who commit IT sabotage hold technical positions, and 90% have administrator or privileged access at their organization.
“With 30% of corporate data now residing exclusively on end user devices, it is critical that enterprises be able to monitor who is accessing that data, how it’s being shared, how administrators are managing it, and who is sharing what files with whom,” said Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva. “These enhancements to our inSync platform provide a complete record of an organization’s endpoint data activities as well as tightening controls over file sharing, facilitating both internal and external audits to ensure security, governance and policy enforcement.”
Other new features in the just-released inSync 5.2 edition include:
