“As enterprises increasingly look to the cloud for digital transformation that will drive their business forward, Mike’s unique perspective and expertise will help ensure Druva is offering best-in-class solutions to meet their needs,” said Singh. “This has been an incredible year of transformation at Druva, and I have no doubt given Mike’s industry know-how, business acumen and vision, he will help us continue to advance our product lines, deliver outstanding experiences for our customers, and expand our opportunities.”

“The data protection and management market is evolving quickly, and businesses are now realizing the advantages of a cloud-native approach,” said Palmer. “Instead of looking for ways to enhance legacy data management, Druva has built technology that meets customers where they are going – the cloud. This is a pivotal moment of growth for Druva and I’m excited to be a part of the next phase in the company’s story.”
