Barracuda Discover 18 Partner Event

I was fortunate enough recently to attend the EMEA Partner Event for Barracuda in Monte Carlo. Having worked with Barracuda for many years it was great to see and hear how Barracuda have grown into one of the leading Data Protection and Network Security providers in the market place, and are now very prevalent not just in the SME space, but now very much a key player in the Enterprise space as well.

Their recent move to becoming a Private company again has allowed them to achieve their goals faster, including mergers and acquisitions plus allowing the company to focus on strategy and not the public overhead.

Barracuda shared some further interesting statistics including:

  • 40% of respondents indicated that their organizations would spend the highest amount of new or additional funding on the cloud
  • 74% is the percentage of targeted attacks that start with email.

This is backed up by Barracuda’s strategy of investment into Data Protection and Network Security for a Cloud Ready Generation has clearly propelled them into the Enterprise market place along with the SME market place where they made their name. With a comprehensive portfolio of solutions in the Network Security and Data Protection area, there really is no reason why organizations, of any size, would need to look outside of Barracuda.  Certainly, the below solutions alone are now market leaders and are worth reviewing as part of your data protection and security requirements.
