World’s First Free-for-Life Data Protection as a Service

June 30, 2022

Rather than going into a long introduction on the rise of ransomware attacks (happening every 11-seconds) or the hyper growth and sprawl of data (more than 130 data silos in use on average in today’s enterprises) or the need to adopt a multi-cloud infrastructure, let’s keep things simple.

HYCU wants to ensure that every company can protect its most sensitive, mission-critical data. And, because that is our mission, we are offering to protect 1TB of AWS data protection free, for life!

Sounds great – right? But, we are sure there are questions. Before you ask, let’s dive in and answer a few of the obvious ones here. The first question being the most important:

What makes HYCU different?                                                  

There are the obvious answers to this question from an organizational standpoint such as:

  •       An industry-leading Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 91
  •       3,100+ customers globally
  •       Sold and serviced in more than 75 countries
  •       400+ partners globally
  •       $140M Funding to date
  •       150% year-on-year bookings growth
  •       3x revenue growth in the past 12 months
  •       4x increase in valuation over the last year
  •       Maintained a 135% net retention rate over the past 12 months

Clearly, those numbers don’t lie, but when it comes to “true” differentiators, HYCU is different in many ways from the competition. Here are just a few:

  • Built natively for AWS – HYCU utilizes native snapshots and AWS Identity Access Management (IAM), resourcing tagging,S3 storage tiers, and elasticity.
  • Agentless, impact-free backups -Utilizing native snapshots and impact-free backups, HYCU gives you full protection without the lag and performance of on-premises tools.  
  • Dynamic scaling and 100% SaaS - HYCU automatically scales up/down based on your application needs and you only pay for what you use.  No upfront payments and no painful upgrades.
  • 100% ownership of your data - Maintain complete control of your data while benefiting from a fully managed service. We will never store your data; we only protect it.  
  • Deploy10x faster - Do not waste time on configuration, patches, or upgrades, simply install and protect in minutes.  
  • DevOps enabled–Protect your applications in less than five minutes and recover with 1 click. It’s so simple, anyone can do it.  
  • 100% Data Privacy and Sovereignty - You own your data, HYCU will never store it. Eliminate the countless hours of managing compliance and regulations with vendors who store and control your data.  

Why is HYCU doing this?

Did you know that more than 60% of organizations' data currently lives in the public cloud[1]? While more organizations rely on cloud infrastructure to protect their data and assume it is automatically recoverable, it may not be. More and more cloud usage relies on “shared responsibility,” and the shared responsibility model puts data protection squarely on the customer’s shoulders. We want to help with that responsibility by providing public cloud users powerful, easy-to-use backup for their mission-critical data. And, to make that as easy and accessible as possible, we decided to make it free.

Doesn’t AWS already provide a backup?

Yes, AWS provides native backup options and published scripts. There are also numerous backup solutions in the market – legacy and SaaS. HYCU offers 1-click simplicity, complete ownership of your data, and 100% data privacy and sovereignty. These are just a few reasons customers choose us and love us.

What’s the catch?

There is no catch, but there are terms and conditions. You can find those here. And trust us, it will not take days or weeks to read through them. Here are a few worth noting upfront:

  • Customers can use the 1TB for life. The only condition is that they need to accept the terms of the offer every year. Again, 1-click simplicity.
  • Customers can cancel the subscription at any time – no questions asked.
  • This offer applies to the managed service provided by HYCU to protect 1TB of AWS data and does not include any AWS usage charges that the customer incurs.
  • Free data protection for life is available for new customers that sign up before Sept. 1st, 2022.

Will I also have access to customer support as part of this offer?

Absolutely! Customers will also have access to our industry-leading support features, including the fully managed service with 24x7 support and monitoring to ensure successful backups.

While these are just a few questions, reach out to us if you have any others. Emails us at info@hycu.com.
