The software is aimed at remote workers in the enterprise space. It features application-aware deduplication technology, which Druva claims reduces the bandwidth and storage required to back up data on laptops.
InSync is already being sold in the UK by VARs B2Net and Tempus. Jaspreet Singh, chief executive of the Indian firm, said he would like to have “15 to 20” resellers and a distributor on board eventually.
“We have had a lot of interest from resellers already and, as our channel grows, we will need a distributor to help manage,” he said.
Singh claimed the software’s popularity in Europe had prompted it to set up shop in the UK.
He said: “Research shows that more than 200 million corporate users work remotely and 67 per cent of businesses are unable to back up data on their laptops, which gives you some idea of what is fuelling the demand.”
Singh cited CA Technologies and IBM as competitors, despite both scaling back their laptop backup services in recent years.
“Both CA and IBM have announced end-of-life polices for their laptop backup products, which is driving up demand,” he said.
Paul Stanbra, director at IT support specialist SysFix Group, said the importance of laptop backup is an issue many companies fail to grasp.
“If you lose the data stored on laptops and servers, your business is pretty much ruined,” he said.
