PwC is the world’s largest professional services firm with $29.2 billion in revenues and offices in 757 cities across 154 countries. Their success, in part, has been achieved by employing a large, empowered workforce powered by a network of branches across multiple cities.

The Challenge

“Druva is an effective solution that completely meets IT expectations without requiring user intervention or maintenance.”

Rajesh Kumar Sharma

Assistant Manager, PwC

PwC is spread across multiple locations and a significant percentage of its workforce operates remotely. Without an endpoint data protection solution in place, PwC faced a number of challenges in protecting its critical corporate data:

  • High costs associated with recovery of lost data
  • No guarantee of complete data retrieval
  • Reduced productivity from lost data
  • Excessive user involvement and heavy resource requirement for backing up manually

To effectively protect data for its mobile workforce, PwC needed a solution that would meet these requirements:

  • Enterprise-grade data protection for laptops and mobile devices
  • Successful backups without user intervention or impact to user productivity
  • Protection against data breach of lost or stolen devices

Druva inSync

“What we really needed was a solution that would help safeguard and protect critical client data carried by our remote users in the event of theft or hardware failure.”

After testing solutions from several vendors, PwC selected Druva inSync to provide its remote workforce with complete data protection. inSync provides PwC with fast and secure endpoint backups over WAN and centralized administration with low user intervention. Automated backup eliminates costs incurred from data loss, as well as consequent productivity loss. If devices are lost or stolen, inSync protects PwC’s critical data with DLP capabilities including device encryption and remote wipe. Furthermore, inSync’s integrated file sharing enables PwC employees to securely share files and collaborate while giving IT full visibility and control of sharing activity.

Since implementing inSync, PwC has achieved the following:

  • 8,000 remote devices protected: inSync’s non-intrusive and easy-to-use enduser experience ensures rapid adoption among users
  • Anywhere, anytime data access: PwC employees can gain instant access to their data from mobile devices and restore data from multiple snapshots in time
  • 60% savings on bandwidth and storage: PwC achieves efficient backups, which utilize low bandwidth and storage, resulting in significant cost savings
