Druva inSync

I can't think of scenarios it would be less appropriate or suited for, but it is well suited for an organization looking to keep their files in a safe environment with version tracking and audit trails. That is pretty much any organization in this day and age. Computers are great but hardware breaks down intermittently so knowing you have your files in a secure location that won't ever fail is fantastic

Mimecast Information Protection

Mimecast Information Protection is more suited to businesses that have regulatory requirements to meet when it comes to email. The Large File Send is helpful to any size business but the forced encryption, scanning for sensitive info before send, and automatically adding legalize or signatures to all outgoing email is something that is more attuned to business who considering themselves medium-sized or larger when it comes to scaling. If your business meets the size that it becomes more applicable you really cannot go wrong with this solution but from a workability and pricing standpoint.

Pros

Druva inSync

  • Restoring users and deleted files from both Cloud and desktop applications, with only a few button click.
  • The InSync dashboard allows me to see where all my assets are and when their last backups occurred.
  • The installation process was VERY easy. So getting everyone up and running was painless.
Marty Goldstein | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mimecast Information Protection

  • It integrates with other Mimecast services providing a one stop shop for all email management. This is aprticuallry helpful when using all these products together since they are all managed from one web based portal.
  • It is a very recognizable name among IT professionals allow ease of knowing many companies have been successful using this product.

Cons

Druva inSync

  • As part of the initial setup, we had a few issues surrounding large numbers of accounts being backed up at the same time. This was more a Microsoft issue than anything, and with help from support, we resolved the issue.
  • The email reports can be a little useless on occasion. For example, I don't need an email every day with a failed backup report if there are no failures.
  • Again with email, the weekly backup report has so much information in it that the email sometimes fails to load. A simple email with a link to click would be better.

Mimecast Information Protection

  • Some of the more complex features, such as setting up secure messaging, do require patience and a lot of testing to get it right.
  • When sending many files with Large File send it does not zip them up into one file vs. sending them to the receiver as individual attachments that they have to download one at a time.

We live in the cloud, Microsoft has some wonderful features, but the fact that you can't search and filter the recycling bin is a huge issue for us Admins

Aside from Druva taking away the Share feature just to push folks to the cloud, it's perfect for what it does and should have just continued to grow not have clueless management decide they wanted to migrate the on-premise customers to the cloud version and offer the share tool for them, this was just wrong and remains wrong.

Most issues I have can be solved without opening a ticket. But if I need to get in touch with a support agent, I can open a chat request and within minutes have a tech on the end assisting me. The few tickets I had to open were resolved on the first call.

Mimecast customer support is always available to help and has been excellent both in walking through situations with me, to troubleshoot, and following up when needed. I would give it a 10 except for one crucial issue I have with them. If you email support you some times will not hear from them for days. With this in mind, I have settled on always calling and getting the immediate first line person.

In consultation with a Druva support person we configured a few policies first for several groups of users. Once that was done it was easy to add users and generate emails that contained links and instructions to download/install the app. Once installed, the app applied the appropriate policy and the sync of data began. We had 40 or so devices to protect, and in a week or less they were all protected. The delays usually were on the part of the user who needed to schedule some time (15-30 minutes at most) to accept the invitation and download/install the app.

Alternatives Considered

Druva inSync

My biggest requirement for looking at Data Protection as a Service is security, both in transit and at rest. Druva inSync offers one of the best security models where if a key is chance it does not affect the current session. Furthermore, we did not see the same dedupe savings with other services.
David Cordell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mimecast Information Protection

We have also used the Proofpoint email suite, including their piece that would most be like the Mimecast Information Protection side. I believe Mimecast is both more widely used and a more mature product both on the specific Information Protection side as well as other parts of the complete email package. In the end, they both appeared to do the same thing but our limited IT support made the choice of Mimecast easy in that we could trust the product we were getting.

Return on Investment

Druva inSync

  • Anytime a user does his/her own restore it has saved his or her own time in not having to redo the lost changes made and it doesn't involve IT staff to do a restore for them or to try looking for or recovering the lost/deleted/corrupted file. This savings in money and time spent is apparent, numerous and possibly priceless.
  • Druva is an affordable product; it's per user cost is acceptable and is affordable for even small businesses
Kristopher Mitchelson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mimecast Information Protection

  • The sensitive information scan has allowed us to meet the requirements set upon us by our bonding and insurance entities giving us the ability to bid for larger jobs that if we did not have a product like this.
  • The Outlook based Large File Send piece has automated the sending of larger files for our users to the point that it does not require any intervention on their part - a big time saver.
