National Cancer Institute Implements Cloud-First Data Protection with Druva

Sponsored by Businesswire

, the leader in cloud data protection and management, today
announced the National
Cancer Institute
(NCI), the federal government’s primary agency
addressing cancer research and treatment, is using Druva to replace its
legacy hardware solutions for backup, restore and archiving of data. As
the only FedRAMP certified data management solution, Druva’s unique
technology ensures compliance with stringent government regulations and
ease of management with automation capabilities.

As part of the National Institutes of Health, NCI manages cancer
research centers, local cancer control programs and an international
cancer research data bank. Faced with the challenge of properly backing
up and protecting data from thousands of workers, NCI needed a solution
that could ensure compliance with minimal administrative oversight, work
in the background on employees devices and help streamline a ceaseless
refresh program. Only Druva’s patented deduplication process enables NCI
to complete back ups within minutes, minimizing bandwidth needs and
impact on daily tasks, while ensuring the ability to meet requirements
such as Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

“We had intolerable data losses from hardware failure,” said Jeff
Shilling, Acting CIO, NCI. “We had to become a more automated, nimble
and agile organization, and cloud backup was technology we wanted to
evaluate. The Druva platform aligned with our goals for digital
transformation by replacing our efforts with functions that Druva’s
automated cloud services can do. We can now spend more time on
empowering the NCI staff to fulfill the organization’s mission.”

After deploying Druva, which is built on AWS, NCI has recognized the
benefits of a cloud-based solution, and is already looking for ways to
further expand its use. The organization is currently working with AWS
to set up its own cloud-focused applications and services that will
further benefit the federal agency’s employees, positioning it as the
cloud-first leader within the federal government.

“Druva is the only FedRAMP certified data protection solution,” said
Jaspreet Singh, founder and CEO, Druva. “That makes us a trusted partner
for federal organizations, like NCI, who are embracing cloud to improve
how data is protected and managed. We’re helping customers manage their
growing data, keep it secure, and meet compliance needs, all while
reducing cost and complexity for IT.”
