As the workforce grows ever more mobile data is finding its way onto more devices in more applications than ever before. This allows end users to access and work on their data everywhere, increasing productivity. However this can create a headache for IT as they struggle to secure and have visibility into users’ data.

Druva’s inSync Proactive Compliance centralizes visibility and control of business data residing on employees’ endpoints and cloud services via integrated backup, data loss prevention, and data governance capabilities. End user’s data is continually mirrored to enable rapid recovery.

The new support announced today enables automation and backup, archival, and governance capabilities across multiple cloud applications. The Office 365 support helps companies meet their hosted email and message-based governance needs. Druva has recently entered a partnership with Box, which will help protect data shared via Box’s online file sharing/content management service. And inSync’s support for Google Apps will benefits companies that use their suite of products including Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Docs.
