Happy New Year and the Future of SaaS Protection!

Happy New Year and the Future of SaaS Protection

December 31, 2023

Happy New Year 2024! 🎉

As our journey continues into 2024, it's great to step back and revisit how far we have come as a company that’s dedicated to building a safer world by harmonizing protection and visibility for all the world's data whether in the cloud, in SaaS, on-prem or hybrid.

2023 was a milestone year!

🌟 We now have more than 4,000 customers globally and more than 450 partners dedicated to supporting us on our journey.

🚀 We launched R-Cloud, the world’s first low-code data protection platform and we now have more than 50 SaaS Integrations to allow companies to protect SaaS applications and services with enterprise-class backup and recovery when many of these applications have had no options available before.

🏆 We have been recognized by many in the industry community as a Best of, Cool, and Hot Company to watch. We were recognized by Gartner for the second consecutive year as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions.

🧍🧍We added Coley Burke and Angie Heindle Schober to run GTM and have seen an incredible number of talented leaders join the company across every department, from Susan An in Americas Sales to Jessica Degenhardt in Channel to Jen Leary in Enablement, to Amar in Engineering to Ezoe-san in Japanese Sales.

And, in many ways as we’ve said before, we are only just getting started. None of this would have been possible without support and guidance from our customers, partners, our executive leadership team, our amazing and talented engineering team, our investors and advisors and the work that every HYCUer puts in to making a difference day in and day out.

Together, as #TeamPurple, we've accomplished so much to date, and we are well on the way to laying the groundwork for a successful 2024 by protecting more SaaS applications and services than have been available at any point in time. With more than 30,000 SaaS applications available globally, and more than 200 in use in the average midsize enterprise, much of this data with no enterprise class backup and recovery available, there has never been a more critical time in IT than now to protect that data.

A personal Thank You to everyone we’ve had the privilege of collaborating with and learning from in 2023. To our outstanding partner community who share our vision, and to the customers we have earned the honor of helping to solve some of the biggest data protection challenges, Thank You. None of our milestones would be possible without your continued support.

Wishing everyone a fantastic start to 2024 as we continue our journey together, driving innovation and positive change as we continue to make HYCU’s vision to redefine data protection for the modern data estate by delivering on our promise of “data anywhere protected everywhere" a reality.
