Many companies are overwhelmed from managing growing amounts of data that are being stored in many different areas–from laptops to data centers to cloud services. The complexity, amount of time and costs for businesses to protect, govern and manage their data lifecycle is increasing dramatically. Druva offers a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that enables organizations to address these needs in a cost efficient, centralized and easy to manage manner no matter where enterprise data is located. Its solutions include cloud data protection as well as data governance and data intelligence, all from a single, unified platform, and addresses these previously mentioned challenges to secure a leadership position in the market.
Founded in 2008, the company offers the Druva Cloud Platform, a SaaS solution that provides high performance, direct to cloud, data protection and management across servers, endpoints, cloud SaaS services (e.g. Office 365, Salesforce, Google), and cloud native workloads. In doing so enterprises achieve a centralized way to protect and manage their data, significantly reduce the cost of infrastructure, and increase overall data visibility to mitigate the inherent data risks caused by unmanaged data sprawl.
An Empowering Leader
Jaspreet Singh, the Founder and CEO of Druva, brings a combination of product vision and business experience that has allowed the company to be one of the fastest-growing companies in the $28B data protection and management market. Druva raised nearly $200M in venture funding, with its most recent round of $80M in 2017.
Jaspreet’s market and technology insights have led him to create the first and only cloud-first, Data Management-as-a-Service (DMaaS) company, providing new and innovative technology solutions, as well as forward-thinking economic models for over 4,000 customers worldwide. Prior to starting Druva, Jaspreet has held foundational roles at Veritas. Jaspreet has a B.S. in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati.
Jaspreet asks all employees of the company to view their jobs as a means of personal growth and journey. He encourages them to be disciplined and ready to take advantage of any and all opportunities that come along, to lean forward and take charge, to be cautious but not afraid, to be courageous, and be honest and show integrity in all that one says and does.
Druva focuses on being customer-centric by understanding the pain points its customers face, then developing solutions to solve these problems. “What we’ve learned is that the digital transformation catalyzed by modern technologies, is rapidly changing today’s organizations of all sizes, as a variety of data is being generated continuously and exponentially at a high-volume and incredible velocity,” asserts Jaspreet.
Businesses of all sizes are struggling to contain, manage, and protect data amid the complexities and limitations of today’s cloud computing environment. Druva offers easy to use software to manage and protect this data from a single, unified platform, a key to securing its leadership position in the market.
“Our first product was modestly successful from a revenue perspective but helped us to see that we were on the right path. It also provided the motivation to always be customer-focused and to continuously look for ways to add value to our customers,” Jaspreet states.
Druva has grown its customer base to over 4000 in less than 10 years. The factors that distinguishes the company from the rest of the market includes regularly engaging its customers for feedback and then understanding them and applying them; looking at things from the customers’ perspective and not just the company’s; having empathy and understanding their pain points, motivations and needs of the customers.
Druva’s mission is to be an enduring company, one that lasts through decades. To accomplish this, it focuses on developing a platform which is not just a collection of products but an integrated line that delivers value to its customer network. The company is a SaaS company and adheres to a corporate philosophy that has three key fundamentals: the right mission and culture, the right team, and always offering value to the customer.
To successfully compete in a fast growing, highly competitive industry, Jaspreet says, “We are a cloud-based software company that must out-innovate our competitors by providing cloud native software that takes full advantage of the benefits of the cloud.
“We believe that leveraging the cloud is the only way to manage and protect the vast amounts of data that each organization is responsible for, in a simple, scalable and cost-effective manner,” adds Jaspreet.
