Reviews (51-75 of 126)
- 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.
- It has an excellent portal, with granular enough settings to back up and drawdown data.
- High praise of their support. They resolve tickets fast and are committed.
- It solves local machine backup and cloud assigned apps in one solution.
- Browsing backed up data can be cumbersome to review. Luckly for us, our needs are only a few nested folders of user data.
- User-level file restore. inSync handles this particularly well with a simple and easy to use interface.
- Device migration. inSync has the built-in ability to assist in migration of data from one device to another. It's not 100% foolproof but comes closer than any other software solution tested.
- Background processing. inSync is able to achieve real-time backups without taxing the system or even alerting the user that backups are occurring. This is perfect for laptops because they are not left running overnight and so finding dedicated times to do backups is impossible with traditional software solutions.
- Device migration is not 100% seamless. Perhaps a device upgrade wizard that guides the user would be an improvement.
- There are rare occasions when the background process spikes CPU usage while the system is in use. It could use some improvement in this area. Ideally, the user should never notice it is running.
- While it is nice that I rarely know it is running, it would also be nice if there was a user-configurable option to be alerted by email or pop-up when a backup is complete or some type of report to indicate how much is backed up and when. Just for extra peace of mind for those that want to be sure their data is secure.
- Restoring backup data onto a new machine is quick and easy!
- Very easy-to-use interface with good analytics on devices installed and device locations, etc.
- Being able to customize location names when adding users would be a +
- Profile backup, it pulls most of the profile settings which allows for setting up the user new computer much faster.
- Custom folder backup - we use it to backup and restore custom folder locations, we do not backup the entire computer. This keeps are backups as small as possible but also allows us to make sure we get all the data that we have deemed important for the company.
- The cloud cache servers help to keep the internet traffic down during the day and uploads the days information up to the cloud overnight when the bandwidth isn't at such a premium.
- We have been having a problem with some of our devices going inactive and not backing up.
- Backing up to the closest cache server and not to one configured server all of the time. This would allow our users the ability to backup quickly when traveling to the different branch locations.
- Incremental backup.
- Snapshots of the previous backup.
- Optimization of data and CPU utilization.
- Restrictions can be applied to ensure compliance.
- Easy restoration.
- Reduce CPU utilization of client.
- More restrictions to be added to adhere to organizations DLP policies.
- Client logs for troubleshooting and investigation.
- Straightforward to configure with the cloud console and quick to deploy to computers.
- Multiplatform product.
- Highly customisable. All the settings you expect and would need.
- Local data encryption. If user1 works on files on their desktop, it remains encrypted to user1 even when they copy the files to USB or a network drive. That is, user2 cannot access the files on the USB or network drive. User1 must first decrypt the files before sharing.
- Low maintenance.
- Easy to set up.
- Easy to configure on the back-end.
- Different policies for different user classes.
- Should not default to only backing up some file types.
- Can't restore O365 through the client.
- Backup and restore are easy to implement.
- Adding equipment for users is easy
- GUI is very well thought out.
- Minor changes to the GUI could include: current profile of a user should be listed in Users view.
- Simple user run restores
- Easy management of backup locations
- Ability to blacklist/whitelist file types (such as VM's)
- Active Directory Integration
- No Active Directory administration tie in. All administrators for inSync must be added manually.
- Restore dialogs could use an overhaul for ease of use, consistency and presentation.
We currently are in a migration process to start using Windows 10 and OneDrive to solve our needs. This is primarily because we can use BitLocker with Windows 10 and OneDrive is integrated into O365 so that makes more sense to us. If not for the use of O365 we would definitely still be using Druva inSync to secure our corporate data on end-user devices.
- Once set up it is very easy to use and maintain, from both a user and administrator point of view.
- Great amount of configuration options but not so many that you get lost.
- Restoring a file can be a little confusing for some users.
- Easy backup -- set it and forget it
- Cloud option is secure
- Plenty of space to backup with
- Not very expensive!!
- Backups on Dell usb-c connected docks don't always work
- Randomly, a client does not backup even though I know they are properly connected
- Sometimes users become inactive for no reason.
- Backup for Druva specified folders (My Documents, Desktop, etc) on an end user device.
- Good Dedup ratio and related savings
- Reasonable cost model.
- InSync provides protection for Druva specified endpoint folders but does not provide a complete OS-level backup. As a result it cannot guarantee the restore will capture EVERYTHING. Think of InSync as an end user data protection tool.
- Less backup options are provided for Mac and Linux endpoints vs. what is afforded for Windows endpoints. For example, Mac backups allow admins to include only Apple Mail, Safari, Address Book and Network while Windows includes Outlook, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, MS Office (including templates) and Network.
- InSync supports encryption for all files that InSync backs up on Windows devices only.
