Druva's data protection service gets FedRAMP nod
- By Sara Friedman
Druva announced the approval of its inSync data management-as-a-service tool by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program at the moderate impact level.
Druva's inSync offers agencies a single, unified control plane for protecting, preserving and discovering information across endpoints and cloud applications, giving customers increased availability and visibility of business-critical data, while reducing costs, risk and complexity, company officials said.
“With the mobilization of its workforce and citizenry, government agencies are not experiencing a digital transformation, but a data transformation,” said Andrew Nielsen, Druva’s chief trust officer. “As more and more large pools of data are bypassing traditional infrastructure and being created on mobile devices or directly in the cloud, the security of mission-critical information has become ever more important.”
Druva's FedRAMP authority to operate was sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services and the National Cancer Institute.
The software-as-a-service offering runs on the Amazon Web Services GovCloud and is compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-2 and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
