Druva, the leader in cloud data protection and information management, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced that Carahsoft will serve as Druva’s public sector distribution partner. Under this agreement, Carahsoft will proactively market and sell Druva inSync, the company’s flagship cloud data protection and information management solution, which Carahsoft will make available to the public sector and its reseller ecosystem via Carahsoft’s SEWP contracts. The solution enables agencies to securely manage data protection and information governance across endpoints and cloud applications with unparalleled ease and sophistication.

"Today’s public sector organizations require the highest levels of security and data privacy. In addition to the best technologies, the need to operate in a secure cloud environment and adhere to standards such as FIPS 140 is a unique and demanding need," said Dave Packer, Vice President of Corporate and Product Marketing at Druva. "Whether part of the federal, state or local government, organizations now require data solutions that are compliant with the latest regulations and deliver the most cutting edge technologies. With the Druva and Carahsoft partnership, the public sector can now easily and assuredly protect their users’ valuable data while adhering to all regulations and compliance requirements."

Embracing modern data protection poses a unique set of challenges for federal, state and local government agencies and contractors, especially when it comes to security requirements and cloud deployments. Druva inSync enables government organizations to overcome these barriers, delivering a U.S. government-compliant cloud environment that adheres to FIPS and ITAR regulations. Moreover, Druva inSync is built on AWS GovCloud which is a FISMA and FedRAMP compliant infrastructure that keeps data protected around the clock.

Druva provides an integrated Cloud Information Management solution that unifies data protection and governance to provide increased data visibility and manageability across laptops, PCs, smart devices and cloud applications (e.g., Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite and Box). Its flagship product Druva inSync allows agencies to have a single data control panel for backup/recovery, compliance monitoring, federated search, anomaly detection and eDiscovery processes across these endpoints and cloud applications. Organizations are able to alleviate data risks and simplify business processes without impacting employee productivity.

"With the addition of Druva inSync to our data protection offerings, we are able to deliver a complete solution in user data backup and management, and provide our government customers and reseller partners with a capability that increases the visibility and availability of cloud data, while reducing risk, complexity and cost," said Brian O’Donnell, Vice President at Carahsoft. "We are especially excited about the security of their cloud application, which is FIPS 140 validated with AWS GovCloud availability, as well as Druva’s ability to provide a restore solution for endpoints and cloud applications that can be done at any time, even during an attack."
