GDPR Horoscope

From all of us here at Druva, I am wishing you a happy GDPR Day! For many organizations May 25th, 2018, has been an impending inevitable data privacy doomsday of a sort. The amount of coverage around the GDPR has been tremendous, and EU 20,000,000 in fines is by no means a neglectable amount for any organization. In the meantime, there is still plenty of ambiguity around enforcement, … [Read more...]

GDPR Is About To Make Data Breaches A Lot Scarier

Hilton could have paid a fine of over $400 million if its data breach had happened after May 2018 and included European citizens. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect May 25th, and nobody wants to be the first company to be hit with a large fine. The bigger the company, the more its people should worry, and the Hilton breach is a great example of why. The GDPR is aimed … [Read more...]

Your Data Center Can’t Protect the Cloud

Attempting to protect the cloud with your data center is like hauling a ton of manure in a sports car. It’s possible, but a really bad idea. You’ll need to make several trips, you’ll waste a lot of money on extra gas, and when you’re done, your car won’t smell very good. Likewise, using your data center to protect cloud data is more expensive and less efficient than a cloud-based solution – … [Read more...]

Druva announces its expanded cross-cloud data protection platform

Still afraid of the cloud? Apparently not – security concerns about the cloud have lessened, and that’s one of the reasons why Cisco predicts1 cloud-computing workloads will make up 95% of data center traffic by 2021. And that traffic will triple, from 6 to 19.5 zettabytes, accommodating diverse apps from security and IoT to enterprise resource planning (ERP). However, the right data management … [Read more...]

How the Cloud Impacts Data Management

Data management has never been more of a challenge. The sheer volume of data is increasing at a staggering rate. Some of it is beneficial, much of it is irrelevant, and a disturbing portion of it is dark and potentially dangerous. Data ownership is fragmented — different business silos often maintain their own information instead of taking a centralized approach. Best practices such as master data … [Read more...]

The GDPR Effect and Football

In the United States, we often believe that we have a corner on the market when it comes to the game of football. However, the game that Americans refer to as football does not require players to use their feet as much as they have to in other countries’ versions of the game.  One would never think to consider that GDPR would have an effect on the game of football, especially not in America, but … [Read more...]
