Earlier today we announced the rebranding of Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda to Barracuda MSP. You can find the details in our press release here, and learn more in this video:
Despite the time managed service providers spend talking to their customers about the importance of security and teaching them to follow security best practices, many MSPs don’t practice what they preach. And that could be a big problem.
According to a recent report from PwC UK and BAE Systems, a China-based hacking group known as APT10 has been conducting a sustained campaign targeting MSPs, and the group has significantly stepped up its activity since mid-2016.
“APT10 has vastly increased the scale and scope of its targeting to include multiple sectors, which has likely been facilitated by its compromise of MSPs,” the report states. “Such providers are responsible for the remote management of customer IT and end-user systems, thus they generally have unfettered and direct access to their clients’ networks. They may also store significant quantities of customer data on their own internal infrastructure. MSPs, therefore, represent a high-payoff target for espionage focused threat actors such as APT10.”

Barracuda is pleased to announce that we were recently named as a 2016 ChannelPro SMB All-Star.

Ever since Barracuda acquired Intronis MSP Solutions back in October, I’ve been impressed with how much our teams have been able to get done together. We’ve launched two new products for MSPs and expanded internationally—all within six months. Whenever I visit our Chelmsford, MA, office (Intronis HQ), the energy level and effort I witness are remarkable, and I can see why we’ve been able to get so much done so quickly.
Here are a few highlights:
- March 16, 2016 – Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda expands its offerings to include a subscription-based hardware solution,Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition
- April 18, 2016 – Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda is now operational in the UK
- May 4, 2016 – Intronis MSP Solutions begins offering Barracuda Essentials for Office 365, a suite of cloud services that combines email security, archiving, and backup in a single solution, to MSPs
And, we’re going to build on that momentum with new MSP-specific firewall offerings and initial integrations with Barracuda products into the Intronis ECHOplatform.
