Our Help Center Has a New Address!

While you experience the speed and power of Druva’s 100% SaaS Cloud-first data protection platform, we are committed to ensuring that your entire journey with us is as seamless as possible. So, here’s introducing the Druva help center; a self-serve-first help experience that offers quick access to assistance whenever you need it. The new help center functions as the primary repository for all information, delivering a significantly more personalized and contextual experience when accessed through the product console.

Here’s a look at what’s new and what’s changed:

  • The new and improved help center promises a leaner structure while still ensuring comprehensive and information-packed resources.

  • Improved search performance for quicker access to relevant help articles. No more sifting through an endless archive of help articles.

You can now securely backup, restore, and manage Planner data, allowing teams to focus on their work without worrying about data loss.

New Feature

eDiscovery: New eDiscovery Download Client v2.0.1 for GovCloud

The new version includes a more enhanced way of registering clients called token-based registration. This method uses tokens, which are unique, randomly generated strings of characters, to authenticate clients and verify that the requests are coming from a legitimate eDiscovery Download Client.

You can now download and install the latest v2.0.1 eDiscovery Download Client version for Windows and macOS from the Downloads page.

Here is a glimpse

Customer action required:

  • New client registrations will now have to provide tokens as input instead of client ID and secret ID

  • Existing clients, if in a disconnected state, will now require tokens as inputs to re-register

  • It is recommended that you whitelist the following global URL for the public cloud to establish a connection between the client and server: https://govglobalapis.druva.com.
