Here we are with yet more evidence that Barracuda products are awesome. IDC's recent worldwide vendor assessment (IDC #244306) names Barracuda a leader in messaging security.
High fives all around!
IDC specifically notes:
- Barracuda has strong competency in running an efficient and cost-effective security hardware appliance business
- Barracuda's integration with its archiving/backup solutions in the cloud and on-premise is a key strength in the market
In October of last year, IDC reported that Barracuda was the volume leader in security appliances, including our Barracuda Email Security Gateway (formerly Barracuda Spam Firewall) and the Barracuda Web Security Gateway (formerly Barracuda Web Filter).
Our messaging security line includes the Barracuda Email Security Gateway physical and virtual appliances, and the cloud-based Barracuda Email Security Service. Both of these products are rock stars, in terms of protecting your users from viruses, phishing attacks, and even some social engineering attacks.
The Barracuda Web Security Gateway and the Barracuda Web Security Service comprise our web security line. The Barracuda Web Security Gateway is available as a physical or virtual appliance, and the Barracuda Web Security Service is available as a cloud-based or hybrid cloud solution.
