The company which raised $5 mn in 2010 from Sequoia & Indian Angel Network; and $12 mn from Nexus Venture Partners and Sequoia Capital was founded in 2007.

Druva is an endpoint data protection and governance solutions company. The first time investment from Tenaya Capital is “substantial,” said the company.

Druva also introduced a major inSync upgrade and two new private cloud deployment options since January, said the Nexus Venture Partners.

Funds will be used to support R&D, expand global sales and marketing and expansion of Druva’s cloud infrastructure to support new deployment.

Jaspreet Singh, Druva founder and CEO said

The size of this latest funding round is a direct result of our unified strategy for solving these problems, our success to date in attracting customers ranging from UC Berkeley to Sephora and NASA, and our roadmap for expanding the inSync platform to become an essential component of the IT infrastructure.
