Important security recommendation for Multifactor Authentication

As a security best practice, we are requesting all our Public Cloud customers to move from Email-based Multifactor Authentication to Authenticator App-based or SMS-based Multifactor Authentication.

Considering that Authenticator App-based and SMS-based Multifactor Authentication methods are more secure, Druva will discontinue Email-based Multifactor Authentication for Public Cloud in the upcoming quarter.

For more information, see  Change the Multifactor Authentication method.

Druva Cloud Platform Update on May 05, 2022

New Feature

Protect mission-critical backups from accidental or malicious deletion with Rollback Actions

You can now configure the Rollback Actions capability to enhance your organization’s data security posture and safeguard backup data from accidental or malicious deletion. 

With Rollback Actions, you can rollback deleted entities within a configurable rollback window. The deleted entities are available for rollback for the specified days before the entity and its backups are permanently deleted.  This provides the administrator the ability to revert malicious or unintended deletes without any loss of data and enables the restoration of productivity rapidly. If you have consciously triggered the deletes, the backup copies will be permanently deleted after the rollback window expires and there will be no impact on what you were trying to do. 

Rollback Actions will be available through the Cyber Resiliency service. 

Action Required: Existing Ransomware Recovery customers will get this offering as part of their existing license. Customers who don’t have Ransomware Recovery license can opt to purchase the Backup Security Posture and Observability license exclusively.  To obtain the license, contact Support. 

Note: Currently, this feature is available only for Druva Public Cloud customers.

Also, the Security Events and Rollback Actions capabilities can now be accessed from the Security Posture category under the Cyber Resilience service.
