SC Magazine has just announced that Barracuda has been named a finalist in the 2014 SC Magazine Awards in the following categories:
Best Email Security Solution – Barracuda Email Security Service
Barracuda Email Security Service (BESS) is a cloud-based email security solution that protects inbound and outbound email against the latest threats. Spam, viruses, worms, phishing, denial of service attacks … BESS defends against them all. BESS is designed for businesses with 50 or more users who host their own email but wish to offload spam and virus filtering to the cloud.
Affordable and scalable, BESS is one of the most cost-effective hosted email security solutions available. Find out more about this product at the BESS product page.
Best UTM Security Solution – Barracuda Firewall
We think this goes without saying, but still we like it when people notice. The Barracuda Firewall just rocks. This product is a next-generation firewall for the mid-market. The Barracuda Firewall leverages the cloud for processor-intensive functions such as content filtering and malware protection, so that resources for on-premise next-generation features are fully optimized. For more details on the Barracuda Firewall, visit the Barracuda Firewall product page here.
Best Web Application Firewall – Barracuda Web Application Firewall
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is one of my personal favorites. You absolutely have to try this thing (risk-free for 30-days!) and once you do, I'm sure you'll drop it into production to protect your web apps. This awesome beast is available as a physical or virtual appliance, and it's available on the Azure and AWS platforms. It has a powerful feature set, including an array of DDoS protection capabilities that are designed to crush even the most current and advanced attacks. I'll be blogging quite a bit about the WAF over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for that. Seriously, you'll want to make this one part of your family.
Best Customer Service – Barracuda Customer Service and Support
You know why?
Yes, it's true that we're awesome, but more importantly, our customers are awesome and we want them to be successful. We make products that we believe in for people we believe in, and we support them both like crazy.
Barracuda strives to provide awesome customer service with live people always on the receiving end to help trouble shoot – there are no phone trees and no automated service. Also, Barracuda customers are provided with telephone support. Since inception, Barracuda has prided itself on the “IT Guy Next Door” mentality – making sure that there is always a live person available to help with any customer issues 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
And that's what it's all about.
Barracuda keeps getting industry recognition because we love what we do, and we have the best people doing it. For more information on Barracuda …
