New deployment options for Barracuda NextGen Firewall – Intronis MSP Edition

Posted by Anne Campbell on Jan 23, 2017 10:57:48 AM

As today’s IT environments get more advanced and threats become more sophisticated, managed service providers need to secure their SMB customers’ networks no matter where those networks are running. Some businesses are transitioning to public cloud deployments, while others are opting moving to fully virtualized environments. As an MSP, you need to be able to offer these types of customers that same level of protection as more traditional on-premise networks.

That’s why we’re introducing two new deployment options for Barracuda NextGen Firewall – Intronis MSP Edition: a virtual firewall that is compatible with VMware, XenServer, KVM, and Hyper-V; and public cloud options designed to protect your customers’ digital assets in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, or Google Cloud Platform deployments.

A look back at the year since Barracuda acquired Intronis

Posted by Brian Babineau on Oct 17, 2016 11:55:06 AM

Last week marked the one-year anniversary of Barracuda acquiring Intronis and jumpstarting our focus in the MSP marketplace. It’s an exciting milestone for all of us here, and it gives me a chance to reflect on everything that we’ve accomplished over the past 365 days.

Time has moved quickly, but so have we. In the past 12 months, we’ve completed a multi-product expansion, adding MSP editions of the Barracuda Backup appliance and virtual appliance, Barracuda Essentials for Office 365, and the Barracuda NextGen F-Series Firewall to our portfolio.  All of these have been welcomed by our customers. We didn’t stop with products, though. We also expanded our MSP Solutions group internationally, successfully bringing those same products to MSPs in the UK and Western Europe.

Adding SharePoint Online backup to our Office 365 solution

Posted by Chris Crellin on Oct 12, 2016 9:44:45 AM

Businesses of all sizes use SharePoint Online for document management, internal workflows, and team collaboration, and it’s quickly gaining popularity over the on-prem version of the solution because it’s accessible from anywhere and easily scalable. One challenge MSPs face, though, is that SharePoint Online has limited backup functionality and retention policies.

That’s why we’re adding cloud-to-cloud backup for SharePoint Online to Barracuda Essentials for Office 365 – Intronis MSP Edition.

Email Threat Scan: How many advanced threats are hiding in your inbox?

Posted by Chris Crellin on Sep 27, 2016 8:28:00 AM

As an MSP, you know that email security is getting more important every day because ransomware and other advanced threats are on the rise. According to a recent report, 93 percent of all phishing emails in the first quarter of 2016 contained ransomware. And people are falling for it. Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report found that roughly 30 percent of phishing emails are opened, and 12 percent of the people targeted clicked on the link or attachment. Those aren’t good odds for your SMB customers.

Traditional email filters and built-in security features like Exchange Online Protection can keep out some of those threats, but have you ever wondered how many advanced threats and spear phishing attacks have penetrated your Office 365 email already? That’s why we’re introducing the Barracuda Email Threat Scan for Office 365.

Meet the virtual version of Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition

Posted by Anne Campbell on Aug 1, 2016 10:45:08 AM

In today’s dynamic IT environments, there is no one-size-fits-all backup solution. Managed service providers support customers of all shapes and sizes, often with very different requirements, and they need to be able to meet everyone’s needs. Some businesses need the flexibility of cloud backup, while others are more suited to the simplicity of an all-in-one appliance.

That’s why we’re introducing a virtual version of Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition. To get a closer look at what the virtual appliance has to offer and the types of customers it’s a good fit for, we sat down with Chris Crellin, senior director of product management here at Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda.

New from Intronis: Barracuda NextGen Firewall – Intronis MSP Edition

Posted by Brian Babineau on Jun 27, 2016 9:39:06 AM

The threat landscape is becoming more complex every day. Ransomware attacks are on the rise, and experts have even declared 2016 the year of ransomware. Theft of “hard” intellectual property increased 56 percent in 2015, and 38 percent more security incidents were detected in 2015 than in 2014, according to The Global Sate of Information Security Survey 2016 by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

All of this means that IT security is more important than ever for MSPs and their SMB customers. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce our newest MSP-optimized offering: the Barracuda NextGen Firewall – Intronis MSP Edition. It’s a turnkey solution that optimizes the security, performance, and availability of your customers’ networks.
