HYCU CEO: With New Ransomware Recovery Readiness Score, The Focus Is On When The ‘Bad Guys Are Already In The House’

‘We’ve got to stop telling people that they can be foolproof against a ransomware attack. Instead, we need to let people know you’re going to get hit and [attackers are] going to get in the door. But when they get in, we want to make sure that you never have to pay the bad guys any kind of ransom,’ says HYCU CEO Simon Taylor.

How would you describe HYCU? What's a good definition of what you do?
We’re now at 2,700 customers, and I believe that we are actually the world’s fastest- growing, multi-cloud Backup-as-a-Service company. And I think the key differentiator for us is we are natively integrated across all the cloud platforms, on-prem, and in public clouds. We automate the process of data migration and Disaster Recovery as a Service. But the simplicity that we bring to bear around backup and recovery is second to none. So one of the things we’ve spent an enormous amount of time, effort and resources in terms of development is in the consumerization of backup and recovery.
We don’t think enterprise data protection has to be complicated. We [think], if Salesforce could simplify CRM to the point where anyone anywhere could use it, IT folks deserve the same level of simplicity. And we’ve invested an enormous amount to make that a reality. And I think it’s really paid off for our customer base around the world. We grew [revenue] 450 percent last year, we’ll grow about 300 percent this year. We’re now in 78 countries across the world. And our sales force has grown, but we haven’t added thousands of people. The sales are coming from the fact that, as people look to move to the cloud, they want simplicity. They don’t want to add complexity just to ensure that they have great data protection. So what we do is bring together simplicity and enterprise data protection in a true service delivery model that I think customers really like.
