Andrew Daniels joins Druva as CIO and CISO

Daniels to focus on securing and scaling Druva’s global operations

Today, cloud data protection and management company Druva announced it tapped Andrew Daniels as its new chief information officer (CIO) and chief information security officer (CISO). Daniels will take on enhancing and scaling Druva’s security operations, incident response and global IT infrastructure.

Daniel joins Druva as it sets its sights on expanding global scale and operations while strengthening its global compliance as it supports customers navigating privacy regulations such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and the California Consumer Privacy Act. Druva also recently expanded its security capabilities by debuting a new FireEye integration designed to monitor, analyze, detect and respond to data breaches.

Jaspreet Singh, founder and CEO of Druva, said of Daniels’ appointment, “The most successful companies are prepared to meet the needs of their workforce today and are ready for the unique security and operational demands likely to arise tomorrow. I am excited to welcome Andrew to the Druva family, and am confident with his leadership we will be in position to not only continue growing as the largest SaaS data protection company, but help our customers navigate their unique daily challenges.”

Daniels added, “At a moment when businesses are navigating incredibly challenging pressures, I’m excited to build on Druva’s clearly strong foundation and make the company, and its customers, even stronger for whatever comes next.”

Daniels comes to Druva with over 20 years of experience and most recently held CSO and CIO roles at Qubole, where he led the information security, information technology, business intelligence and operations teams. He also led the company in achieving SOC2 Type II, ISO-27001, HIPAA compliance along with several other initiatives on multiple cloud platforms

Daniels’ appointment isn’t the only good news coming out of Druva recently. In June, the company announced its continued growth over the last year was driven by a 70% year-over-year increase in recurring revenue for its data center workload protection solution and a 50% growth in overall data under management.
