Time to move on from Symantec DLO

It’s the perfect time to switch to modern endpoint backup with Druva inSync

With Symantec Backup Exec Cloud’s end-of-life, and according to Gartner, no future focus for Symantec DLO, you need a replacement that will effectively protect your users’ endpoint data. Druva inSync is a modern solution for today’s mobile workforce, providing non-intrusive backup, mobile apps for data access and sharing, and flexible deployment options. With centralized administration, it’s easy to manage backup for even the largest enterprises.

High-performance, Invisible Backup

Unlike Backup Exec Cloud and DLO, Druva inSync provides non-intrusive backup and restore without VPN, wherever and whenever users are working. High-performance backup is completely non-disruptive and invisible to end users, eliminating the desire to turn off the end user client and resulting in continuous data protection.

Flexible Deployment Options

With inSync, you can choose the deployment option that works best for your organization. On-premise deployment provides complete control of infrastructure and management, while cloud deployment offers a scalable, secure platform that can handle any number of users and data. inSync Private Cloud provides large organizations with multi-node global deployment with scalable, elastic architecture.

Enable Your Mobile Workforce

It’s obvious that Symantec Backup Exec Cloud and DLO were created before 75% of the workforce was mobile. In contract, inSync was built from the ground up for mobility, providing users with access to data anytime, anywhere, and on any device. With the inSync mobile app, users can access and share data from smartphones and tablets, while backup protects data on those devices from loss.
