Druva acquires sfApex to offer data protection with sandbox management and data governance - Help Net Security

Druva announced the acquisition of sfApex, a leading Salesforce developer tools and data migration service provider. This integrated Druva solution brings customers the best of both technologies, including advanced data protection with sandbox management and data governance, delivered in the exact same way their CRM service is accessed – via a cloud-native SaaS platform.


Salesforce is the leading SaaS-based CRM and the second most widely adopted enterprise SaaS application, but since discontinuing its own recovery feature in July 2020, many customers are now facing increased risk of data loss, business disruption or irreparable brand damage.


Druva, combined with sfApex, delivers comprehensive SaaS data protection and management for Salesforce with granular backup and data recovery as well as streamlined and automated migrations and improved tools for developers.


As customers face increasingly stringent compliance regulation, Druva Cloud Platform delivers enhanced data privacy capabilities to keep pace with all of today’s changing needs.


“Salesforce is critical to every organization: the data stored within it fuels growth, ensures strong customer relationships, and helps identify opportunities to expand relationships,” said Jaspreet Singh, founder and CEO, Druva.


“Given its sensitivity and potential business impact, keeping this data available and compliant is a business critical function. The addition of sfApex, and their team’s deep expertise, to the Druva family brings a compelling and powerful solution to customers to help ensure they meet today’s dynamic business demands without ever having to worry about the lights going out.”


“After years as a developer on Salesforce, in 2012 my co-founders and I recognized an opportunity to improve the platform’s data protection and governance for sandbox environments,” said Kashyap Patel, founder, sfApex ..
