The rise in cyberattacks such as ransomware, spear phishing, and the overall intensified cyberthreat landscape, continues to raise concern for businesses across the globe. With these evolving concerns and threats in mind, Barracuda has announced new enhancements to the Barracuda XDR platform designed to boost its detection and response capabilities, as well as help MSPs streamline their security service offerings.
Barracuda XDR features an ever-growing list of integrations, providing an open XDR that allows MSPs to leverage existing technology stacks while taking their cybersecurity service offering to new heights.
New integrations address gaps directly
Barracuda has introduced new integrations between Barracuda CloudGen Firewall and Barracuda XDR, mapping of detection rules with MITRE ATT&CK(R) framework to quickly address detection gaps, and extended its Security Operations Center (SOC) with further integrations of Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) capabilities.
With the new integration between Barracuda XDR and CloudGen Firewall, partners can gain visibility of all their firewall deployments through a single-pane-of-glass dashboard and 24×7 detection and response through our SOC services, increasing MSP’s efficiency by reducing product silos, mitigating alert fatigue, and streamlining management of their customers’ environments. By mapping detection rules to the MITRE ATT&CK® framework, it provides the Barracuda SOC team with the ability to understand the attack tactics, predict an attack’s likely next step, and identify gaps in detection coverage. The additional SOAR capabilities to the Barracuda SOC infrastructure ensure faster response time, streamline processes, and more importantly, provide increased protection when a cyberattack takes place.
Cybersecurity is a journey, not a product
It is clear that standalone solutions are not an adequate defense against today’s bad actors. Thus, Barracuda has also introduced new options available to partners using Barracuda XDR to provide flexibility, choice, and broad coverage in their security service offerings. The options include:
“Today's MSPs are experiencing the same cybersecurity talent shortage as businesses globally. They need security solutions to work for them and not the other way around. Barracuda XDR can enable them with a holistic managed security service offering that protects major attack vectors such as endpoint, email, cloud, network, and server in a single dashboard that is backed by our best-of-breed 24×7 SOC. Freeing MSPs to focus on ways to grow their business, instead of being inundated by alerts or management of the various different security solutions in their tech stack. I have dedicated my career to securing the world. I'm excited to oversee world-leading products and services that help each company do so. ” Shani Mahler, Product Management Director, Barracuda MSP.
