These agents upload data to Druva’s centralized cloud. When data or devices get lost, data can be restored from Druva’s cloud.

The startup is working with eDiscovery vendors like vendors like Recommind and AccessData that expedites litigation-related endpoint data review and analysis.

“Our business is now at an inflection point. We have established the value of our inSync platform, gone beyond data protection with the addition of critical governance capabilities, begun building an ecosystem with partnerships that will leverage inSync-captured data to meet a range of needs, and launched an initiative to expand our offerings for protecting data at the edge of the enterprise,” said Jaspreet Singh, Druva founder and CEO. “This new round of funding will help advance our agenda and bring innovative solutions to enterprises to manage data beyond the corporate firewall.”

The funding raised will be used for R&D for new inSync enhancements, diversification of the Druva product portfolio, and further expansion into global markets.
