Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The past few months have seen great momentum for Barracuda and we’d like to take a moment and highlight some of the great industry accolades we’ve picked up recently.

We’ll start with the SC Awards, which are recognized throughout the IT security industry as the crowning achievement for IT security professionals and products.  The 19th annual SC Awards ceremony took place during the RSA Conference earlier this year. Barracuda was honored with two Excellence Awards in the following categories:

  • Excellence Award Winner: Best SME Security Solution – Barracuda NextGen Firewall
  • Excellence Award Winner: Best Customer Service – Barracuda Customer Support

Winners in the Excellence Award category were hand-selected by a panel of IT security experts from both the private and public sector.

Next up, Info Security Products Guide celebrated its 12th annual 2016 Global Excellence Awards at RSA Conference 2016. Each year the awards honor excellence in every facet of the industry including products, people behind the successes, and the best companies. More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined Barracuda a winner in the following categories:

  • Grand Winner: Best Security Vendors Overall – Barracuda

Jumping to the next set of awards, Barracuda picked up further recognition with CRN and its recently released Security 100 List, Channel Chiefs List and 5-Star Partner Program Guide.

The inaugural CRN 2016 Security 100 List, saw Barracuda top the list as one of the 25 Coolest Network Security Vendors in the Network Security category. The list recognizes the coolest security vendors in each of five categories: Endpoint Security; Identity and Access Management and Data Protection; Network Security; SIEM and Threat Detection; and Web and Application Security.

CRN’s list of Channel Chiefs is an annual recognition of individuals who have demonstrated outstanding achievement and dedication to the channel community.  While this marks the fourth year Barracuda has been honored to make the list, this year feels a little sweeter as Michael Hughes, Barracuda’s long-standing Channel Chief and SVP of Worldwide Sales, has been named one of “The 50 Most Influential Chiefs” by CRN.

Take a look at this video clip to see what Hughes had to say on the subject.

Barracuda has also been recognized by CRN with a 5-Star rating for our partner program, marking the fourth consecutive year we’ve received the high rating. See this blog post for details.   You can also read more about Barracuda’s 5-Star partner program in CRN’s Partner Program Guide here.,

We also wanted to highlight our Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda (Intronis) team. Barracuda acquired Intronis in October 2016, bringing on significant resources for our MSP program. Intronis was recently named a 2016 Best Channel Vendor in the Business Continuity/BDR category by Business Solutions Magazine (BSM). The win marks the second time the publication has recognized Intronis for its continued excellence in partner enablement, technology innovation, and market leadership. We’re also very proud to highlight the recent  Gold and Silver Stevie Awards for outstanding customer service, as well as being named to After Nines Inc.’s ChannelE2E 100, which identifies and honors the top 100 entrepreneurs, startups, and exits from across the IT channel.  You can read more about that recognition here.
