"I don’t necessarily have the IT reach, I don’t have the geographic representation in those [remote] offices, often meaning that sometimes when those systems go down due to a lack of resource, bandwidth to those sites because it’s so expensive, sometimes I can literally have sites out of touch and out of commission for 24 or 48 hours, which has a dramatic impact on the business."
"When we look at data protection and visibility, I’m just going to build this out for you. Protect, govern and serve. What does that mean? Not only do we want to protect the data and be able to recover the data, let’s take the next step in mobile devices, which also includes laptops."
"The explosion of data, the predictability of data [and] the mobility of our workforce is fundamentally changed ... When was the last time you actually were at a desktop PC? That fundamentally is not going to happen anymore."
"There’s no such thing as the cloud; it’s a thousand clouds around the world – we don’t know what region the data’s in, we don’t know if that’s a corporate sanctioned service."
"Device management is important, but device is pretty much a window to your data. It’s not that the device is going to be very transient in the nature of a person doing his work ... The data and the essential data is what is the most important."
"How do you push this and get kind of the visibility at what we call the edge on these devices? You need to have that visibility; you need to have the right policies in place. You need to be able to pull that data and figure out how to place it on litigation hold."
"If you think about end points and the data in the wild, the cloud becomes a natural fit. If you’re wondering why the first thing is global reach, you’re dealing with a workforce that’s distributed across the globe and no other better way than to go cloud because you can now have storage locations that are situated at the closest proximity to all your remote sites. The cloud is perfect for that."
Jaspreet Singh, co-founder, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Druva discussed data protection and how to simplify the increasing amount of data being generated.
