Cloud Data Protection and Management company Druva Inc. has announced the acquisition of sfApex, a Salesforce developer tools and data migration service provider. The company did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.

Salesforce is an SaaS-based CRM and the second most widely adopted enterprise SaaS application. The company discontinued its own recovery feature in July 2020, and it has been reported that many customers are now facing increased risk of data loss, business disruption or irreparable brand damage.

The company said that this integrated Druva solution brings its 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 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.”

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.

Druva Cloud Platform delivers enhanced data privacy capabilities to keep pace with all of today’s changing needs, according to the company.

“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.

“Since then, the power of Salesforce data has only grown, and we are incredibly excited to join the Druva family and expand these capabilities even further.

“Combining the strengths of sfApex with Druva’s extensive resources and industry leadership, we are committed to bringing a best-in-class experience and innovations to protect Salesforce customers’ most critical data.”
