HYCU Ransomware Services, Certification Available to Partners

HYCU Inc., an enterprise SaaS company specializing in on-premises and public cloud data backup and recovery as a service, announced new ransomware assessment and recovery services for partners.

In addition, HYCU rolled out a certification program for MSPs, MSSPs, and CSPs, based on R-Score, to help partners deliver ransomware recovery readiness assessments to provide actionable activities to alleviate and reduce the risk associated with escalating ransomware attacks.

The ransomware services and certification program align with the latest enhancements to HYCU Protégé as part of a foundation for ransomware protection and recovery.

The enhancements to HYCU Protégé counter the rise of ransomware attacks facing organizations across on-premises and public cloud environments. With ransomware preparedness, requirements for WORM-enabled and immutable storage along with enhanced data protection for greater availability and recoverability, the enhancements to HYCU Protégé are designed to provide as a service foundation for data migration, protection and recovery.

HYCU Protégé was introduced at ITPT 31 in June 2019. Since launching, the solution has been recognized as an honorable mention in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions, published July 2020, along with several other industry accolades.

HYCU Protégé is an application-aware, lightweight cross-cloud migration and DR solution for enterprise applications and workloads and delivers application consistency, protected migration, 1-click DR and consolidated management across clouds.

Highlights of the latest enhancements to HYCU Protégé include:

  • Additional data protection for Dell EMC PowerScale OneFS – HYCU supports native Isilon REST APIs, including the snapshot-change-list API, for efficient and fast incremental backups.
  • Enhanced protection for public cloud – As security and compliance become more mainstream in the shared responsibility model with public cloud providers, HYCU supports direct backups and archives to WORM-enabled object storage on Azure (Blob) and Google Cloud (Google Cloud Storage – GCS).
  • Simplified security credential management – Building on support for Multi-factor Authentication (MFA), network segmentation, in-transit encryption, black-box architecture and multitenancy, HYCU customers can centralize, simplify, and secure their application and system credentials in CyberArk Conjur Credential Store, an external Credential store, for organization users and also for tenants.
  • Advanced security and compliance for GovCloud use – To leverage solutions in Gov Cloud, HYCU customers need to deploy and manage themselves or have a Fed Ramped SaaS offering. HYCU provides a single-click migration for OnPrem workloads onto Azure Gov Cloud for a seamless, application-consistent lift and shift-up experience. This builds on support of Azure Gov Cloud Blob to store HYCU backups.

The new Ransomware Assessment Services and Certification program provides HYCU partners with a specialized consultative version of R-Score. Partners then can do a complete assessment of their customers’ preparedness to recover from a ransomware event if one were to happen.

In addition to the assessment, partners’ customers also receive recommendations to increase their score. As part of the launch of the services, HYCU provides certification for partners to deliver the assessment and ransomware readiness services.
