The Top 50 Midmarket IT Vendor Executive list is an award presented by the Midsize Enterprise Summit, an event of The Channel Company. The list is peer nominated, and winners are selected by peers, customers, industry experts, and the MES leadership team. Winners are recognized for understanding and meeting the unique needs of the mid-market.
Companies in the SMB space often face the same threat landscape and regulatory challenges as larger organizations, but they lack the resources to deal with them. They operate in the same always-on, always-connected world, but they don't have the IT budget or staff to mitigate the risks. Barracuda solutions are designed for these customers. We pack enterprise-grade power into affordable and easy-to-use appliances, virtual appliances and cloud solutions. Our sales and support specialists assist with setup and installation, and we offer 30-day risk-free evaluations. We simplify the entire process so that our customers can focus on their business and not their IT.
Michael Hughes has been outstanding in delivering these solutions to customers and partners all over the world. He's helped Barracuda grow across multiple product lines and become a leader in purpose-built appliances. He's also helped develop an award-winning partner program, and was named one of the top Channel Chiefs to watch in 2014.
He also has a heart of gold.
