Earlier this year Barracuda and Microsoft worked together to present the Cloud Ready Channel Summit, which was a gathering of leaders from both companies as well as some of our partners. Phil Sorgen, Corporate Vice President, US Enterprise Commercial at Microsoft, made this point in his presentation:
Business used to be “big eats small.” Now with the public cloud, it's “fast eats big.”
Barracuda network and application protection solutions are designed to make business easier and faster for our customers. We do this by bringing together the best technologies, concepts, and business processes, getting them to market quickly and affordably, and supporting them like crazy with Energize Updates, Instant Replacement, award-winning tech support, and more.
A core piece of our success story is the recognition that small and medium enterprises are no longer protected by obscurity or a belief that they are too insignificant to attack. In the modern threat landscape of bots and attacks-for-hire and anonymous state-sponsored hackers, SME companies are at risk just like the large enterprises. To help these companies defend themselves, we've put large enterprise type capabilities into a solution that is designed to be simple and low-maintenance for the IT professionals.Business used to be 'big eats small.'

Our network and application security solutions is a set of firewalls engineered for the cloud:
- Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is a family of physical, virtual, and cloud-based appliances that provide next-generation and advanced threat protection to your entire network, wherever your resources reside.
- Barracuda Web Application Firewall defends against a variety of attacks including the OWASP Top 10, zero-day threats, data leakage, and application-layer denial of service (DoS) attacks.
The public cloud provides even the smallest business with benefits that were previously only available to the largest companies, and Barracuda public cloud solutions protect users, applications, and data – regardless of where they are located.
