At Secured.22, Barracuda's annual virtual customer conference, which is taking place this week, we announced several exciting new product innovations in the areas of Zero Trust Access, Email Protection, XDR, and Data Protection. These new capabilities protect against persistent and evolving threats like ransomware and help customers solve complex digital business transformation challenges.
1. Securing remote workforces
Hackers are targeting remote workers more than ever before, using sophisticated methods to bypass traditional secure access controls. To combat these threats, organizations need to adopt a Zero Trust security model.
As part of Barracuda’s SASE platform, Barracuda CloudGen Access now includes web security to protect users no matter where they work. Check out the press release for more details or read this Q&A with Sinan Eren, VP of Zero Trust at Barracuda, to get his insight on what’s new and how it can help you.
2. Hardening the Microsoft 365 environment
With the accelerated migration of workloads to Microsoft 365, the attack surface for today’s businesses has expanded, and securing workloads for collaboration tools such as OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams requires security strategies built for the cloud.
Now with Zero Trust Access, Barracuda Email Protection hardens the Microsoft 365 environment by continuously verifying and only allowing the right users to access the right resources. Check out the press release for more information or read this Q&A with Sinan Eren, VP of Zero Trust at Barracuda, to get his perspective on why this is so important.
3. Providing new XDR integrations
With cyberattacks increasing in both frequency and sophistication, having standalone security solutions is no longer sufficient for partners to effectively protect their customers. To be successful, partners need to enable businesses to achieve the basic cybersecurity hygiene required by today’s environment. That cybersecurity hygiene includes proactive monitoring with extended visibility, building concentric rings of security layers, and 24×7 detection & response, because cybercriminals work around the clock.
With the new integration between Barracuda XDR and CloudGen Firewall, MSPs can gain visibility and insights by offering 24×7 SOC services, and increase efficiency by reducing product silos, mitigating alert fatigue, and streamlining management of their customers’ environments. Check out the press release or blog post to find out more.
4. Making it easier to protect data in the cloud
Now transactable in Azure Marketplace for customers and channel partners that want to take advantage of simplified and streamlined procurement and deployment processes, Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup delivers a fast search and restore experience for Microsoft 365 data, including Teams, Exchange Online, SharePoint, and OneDrive.
Barracuda’s Data Protection business momentum was boosted by the growth in its Cloud-to-Cloud Backup SaaS product line that protects data stored in Microsoft 365. Check out the press release to find out more about this momentum, and read the Q&A with Sr. Product Manager Shawn Lubahn to see what else is new from the Data Protection team.
