Druva Strengthens Cyber Resilience with Innovative Rollback Actions


Introducing Tamper-Proof and Secure Access to Deleted Data, Bringing Ability to Reverse Accidental Deletions and Mass Purges by Internal or External Threats

Druva Inc., the Data Resiliency Cloud company, has introduced Druva Rollback Actions, allowing customers to easily and quickly roll back unauthorized or accidental deletion activity.

When combined with Druva’s AI-driven continuous monitoring capabilities and 24/7 support from Druva Cloud Ops, customers will be able to rapidly monitor, fight and mitigate internal or external threats. In tandem with the recently announced Druva Curated Recovery, customers can now experience one of the industry’s most comprehensive and innovative platforms to protect their data from threats both inside and outside their organization.

Insider attacks and unauthorized activities stemming from events such as stolen credentials or hacked systems are often marked by an attacker’s focus on destroying as much data as possible, including data archives. Such attacks, if not caught early, can significantly impact an organization’s backup copies, and in turn, its ability to restore data or environments successfully. Other solutions offer minimal deletion prevention which can be overridden with the correct administrator credentials or require outside service providers, weakening safeguards.

For Druva customers, backups purged during mass deletion events are automatically placed into temporary, tamper-proof storage for up to seven days, while Druva’s continuous monitoring team alerts administrators to the unusual activity.

Together, these actions are designed to thwart bad actors who may be trying to destroy large amounts of data quickly, helping administrators ensure data is not being deleted accidentally or maliciously.

“Inside actors and criminals stealing credentials have become incredibly sophisticated and are bypassing security measures to initiate unauthorized activities and data deletions,” said Prem Ananthakrishnan, Vice President of Products, Druva. “By creating temporary storage to automatically capture and hold mass deleted data, customers can easily view and roll back the potential impact of these incidents. Dozens of Druva customers have already benefited from this feature over the last year, and we know customers will benefit from having this ability easily accessible within the Druva Data Resiliency Cloud.”

In the case of credential misuse where a bad actor may maliciously remove endpoints, users, virtual machines, NAS or file shares or even databases, Druva Rollback Actions will allow administrators to quickly recover not only the data from deleted backups but also environmental objects as well. In addition, customers can safeguard against accidental or unintended deletions, providing the administrator the ability to revert the unintended action without any loss of data and restoring productivity rapidly.

Available in the coming months through a self-service function, Druva Rollback Actions will be enabled by default for all users and administrators and will be able to temporarily store data from 24 hours to up to seven days. Only administrators will have the ability to recover the data, and these users will also have access to full audit trails to review the deletion activity by each user.
