HYCU® Named a Visionary in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions

Boston, Massachusetts, Aug. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HYCU, Inc., the world’s fastest-growing multi-cloud data protection as a service company, today announced, for the second consecutive year it has been named a Visionary in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions.

HYCU simplifies on-premises and multi-cloud data protection for thousands of customers worldwide including several among the FORTUNE 500. Companies continue to face challenges to better protect, manage and recover mission critical data. This has been compounded by the rise in ransomware attacks, with new attacks noted by Cybersecurity Ventures occurring at a rate of every 11 seconds. To address these challenges, HYCU continues to evolve its award-winning platform to ease and administer the protection and recovery of workloads across the most widely deployed applications, databases and SaaS services.

The past year was highlighted by several key innovations from HYCU, including:

  • The Introduction of R-Cloud™: HYCU’s new low-code, purpose-built data development platform allows SaaS companies and ISVs to develop and provide backup and recovery services for their SaaS offerings on the HYCU platform. The platform is designed for vendors to deliver enterprise class backup and recovery service to their users that is secure and scalable, providing an easy way to visualize all data across the enterprise, identify what data is protected, ensure data is not left unprotected, and be able to recover data in the event of human error or malicious attack.
  • R-Graph: HYCU’s visual representation of data protection environment, displaying the topology, data protection and compliance statuses of different data sources—cloud workloads, applications and databases, and SaaS applications.
  • Multi-cloud Support: HYCU customers find breadth of coverage to be a huge value. While HYCU AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, the company also supports leading hybrid cloud technologies like VMware Cloud on AWS, Azure VMware Solution, Google Cloud VMware Engine and Nutanix Cloud Clusters on AWS and Azure. HYCU’s public cloud offerings also include coverage of DBaaS and PaaS workloads in Google Kubernetes Engine, Google Big Query and Google CloudSQL.

Other new capabilities HYCU is recognized for include:

  • The availability of a free tier of HYCU for Amazon Web Services (AWS) users. This is a purpose-built cloud-native backup as a service for AWS, for free.
  • Support for Azure Government users
  • Impact-free, agentless file share backup
  • Support for Edge and ROBO workloads

“We are excited and proud to be named a Visionary in this report for the second year in a row,” said Simon Taylor, Founder and CEO, HYCU, Inc. “It’s a significant milestone that we feel recognizes the critical importance and growing challenges of SaaS backup, and validates the need for R-Cloud. Moreover, it once again validates HYCU’s role as an innovator singularly focused on helping our customers and partners overcome the challenges that the rise of ransomware has elicited as well as the growing use of multi-clouds throughout the digital estate. Our fundamental belief since our founding continues to be validated – that there is a better way to manage, protect, and recover data across the growing number of data sources within companies and organizations.”
