- Backing up all our Office 365 data.
- Restoring any files, including email, is very efficient and straightforward.
- Easy management. It's easy to set up and manage the backup processes.
- 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.
- Real-time monitoring: user data usage, activities, and device locator.
- Compliance enforcement: compliance templates available for regulated industries.
- DLP settings: device trace, auto-delete, and file encryption.
- More intuitive dashboards
- Ability to add licenses from the dashboard
- It uses cloud storage which allows flexibility.
- It can be integrated with Office 365 for SSO.
- Unlimited storage.
- I like it the way it is, there are a lot of options to cater to our back up needs
- Configuring SSO can be difficult
- Technical support can be hard to understand at times
- Ease of use. Anybody can use this without any previous knowledge
- The product has a range of responsibilities which we use for the company
- Security- It offers great security and piece of mind
- Restoring data option for mac isn't the greatest
- The dashboard could have some more options to include the specific amount of users and their operating systems
- Updates should be notified and what changes have been made
- Restore of settings when switching PCs
- Easy to restore individual files, from a specific backup time frame
- Excellent at notifying if backups are not occurring.
- Druva could do a better job of speeding up the restore time
- It supports all the platforms including mobile devices and workstations
- Easy to set up and highly secure stored data
- Data is stored in AWS cloud so it is easily scalable and easily restorable
- Browsing the schedule of the plan is complicated, it can be simplified.
- Reporting can be simplified and extended to more than 30 days as this might be required for auditing purposes.
- No option to remote troubleshooting, we have to access the system to troubleshoot.
- Allows for scheduling backups without having to interfere with the end-user experience.
- For Directory backups, change the default setting to All Files. We did have an instance where an end-user was using software that used an extension that did not fall into the default settings and was not being backed up. We had to configure "All Files" after the fact.
- Directory in question: Documents.
- Ease of use! Easy application to manage.
- Ease of implementation. We had Druva up and running with in a day, and rolled out in a few weeks.
- Support is fantastic. We've only had a few issues, but support was there for us.
- I'd like to see more backup options for Slack and Dropbox.
- Centralized administration console allows for simple management of large deployments through the use of profiles.
- Ability to deploy on-premise allows for greater control and compliance when operating within strict Information Security and data locality requirements.
- Integration into active directory allows for seamless and secure deployment of clients without the need for user interaction.
- The client still has some issues, particularly around connectivity to the server when licensing is lapsed or incorrectly reporting so.
- The ability to share files between internal and/or expose files to external users is a feature often logged with the IT Service Desk.
- Set it and forget it.
- No user interaction needed after the initial setup is complete.
- Very easy to configure.
- Automation is a bonus.
- Peace of mind.
- The Password reset could maybe include a copy of the reset being sent to the Druva admin as well.
- Ability to modify or add or include different folder to be backed up.
- The Restore Feature could be changed to redirect the restore to, or to restore to the original folder that got backed up in the first place.
- The ability to track file access with the auditing system is unparalleled. We can generate reports on a user or on a file/folder to see who has accessed it and when.
- When a file went missing we reviewed when it was last accessed and it was deleted 6 months ago. With Druva inSync we were able to not only recover the file but determine who deleted it and inform them of better practices so it wasn't accidentally deleted again. This was incredible and invaluable.
- Managing teams of users and how they access folders/files is great and very simple.
- We often share access to folders or files with our clients during the software development phase and having the ability to revoke access as needed is fantastic. If you accidentally sent a link out for sensitive files you would be able to revoke access to that link and generate a new one rather quickly.
- The main area they could use improvement on is the client on your local computer. There were a few times it would stop working and I would need to contact customer support to get it working again. Those scenarios have been fewer as of this year so they hopefully have things sorted out by now.
- The version control system does exist, but it is kind of hard to access so they could improve how you access it and how it works.
- 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.
- Restoration Log Report, should match file name to Microsoft's Activity log. One for one comparison helps to ensure that all files were restored.
- They need a report that also allows me to know if a backup process is taking a more than normal amount of time. I had one user whose backup started August 28th and was still running Sept 15th. This to me, would be a "failed" backup, but it was just stuck and none of their reports alerted me.
- I really don't have a third issue, Druva Rocks!
- Easy to configure group or company-wide backup and recovery policies
- Accommodates backups of both on-device data and O365 cloud-based data (email and OneDrive)
- Provides at a glance summaries of data storage use, device status, and backups
- Affords device location ability, and remote device erase from an easy to use portal
- We have been using the solution for only six months, and in that time I have not identified any areas needing improvement.
- Runs in the background with no interference to the user. It simply works.
- Having users able to do their own restores if something goes missing and as an IT Department, using Druva to restore data to their new machines during a transition is very quick and easy, also it restores user settings and preferences to the new machine as well with their usage of USMT.
- Deduplication on the server side is very effective and nice for storage costs. We have around a 50% deduplication rate meaning we have double the storage available for backups than what we would otherwise have available without dedupe.
- User and backend administration is straight forward and simple, there isn't a very complicated or in depth UI on the management console side so it makes getting up and running and ongoing administration fast and simple.
- Using Druva as a revisionist tool is also a good use of the product. If you're working on a big document in Word it's a good idea to hit the backup button every few minutes so if you accidentally delete half the document you can just restore back to a 5 minute old version of the document and the amount of loss work and time will be drastically reduced, just another way to use the tool for your benefit.
- They are not offering the on premise version of their software anymore so you have to do a cloud based solution with them which for some entities can pose an issue, we are not thrilled about this and may end up leaving Druva due to it although we otherwise wouldn't if they continued to allow us to keep our backed up data locally instead of in their cloud or any cloud based solution
- The product is simple so there aren't any hard to use features however the back end database can be sensitive to reboots, if the services are stopped or the server is restarted when back ups are running it more than likely will end in a corrupted database and support will have to intervene to possible fix it or more likely delete and start over, having to have all users run a full backup again and starting over. Also if you have a hardware issue on your SAN for example it isn't resilient by nature.
- inSync was easy to deploy. I spend little time managing the software.
- I never need to worry about buying additional backup hardware. Druva inSync scales with my needs.
- The user sees no impact during backups
- Some of the errors you'll get on failed jobs can be ambiguous
- Restoring any data, such as mail items is very efficient and helpful compared to other products.
- The Druva dashboard is very user-friendly and it also makes managing and monitoring the processes a lot faster.
- Being cloud-based, you can access the dashboard from anywhere and anytime with no need to worry about hardware and maintenance.
- Reporting needs some improvement in my mind.
- Easy to use, the interface is intuitive and training requirements were minimal.
- Good audit trails and history of data access.
- Collaboration is simple.
- Change management - The notification or major changes is often slow or hard to find.
- The license model for external collaborators isn't great and I think this could be simplified.
- More enhancements to the audit trail and access notifications would be great.
- Cloud-based backup of client data works well, use of bandwidth is appropriately managed in order to ensure it does not saturate the link.
- Recovery of client data can be done directly back to the device in the original folder quickly and efficiently, restoration back to an alternative location can also be achieved should it be required.
- Administrative and legal searches work well and enable finding of documents relatively quickly and easily.
- The Druva inSync mobile app is clunky to use and does provide an easy method to edit documents from a mobile device which some of the competitor products do.
- The Druva inSync PC app does not allow for a right-click restore function, instead, you need to use the full client which is more time consuming and less obvious to a typical user.
- Druva inSync is natively unable to backup files in OneDrive which has become a common business tool.
