Barracuda Networks Expands Offering to Include Barracuda CloudGen Access for MSPs

By Tracey E. Schelmetic

Barracuda Networks, which provides security, networking and storage products based on network appliances and cloud services, recently announced the expansion of its portfolio of solutions and services for IT managed service providers to include Barracuda CloudGen Access for MSPs. CloudGen Access for MSPs enables zero trust network access (ZTNA) to apps and data so a user’s customers can work from any device and location, securely.

ZTNA authenticates users then provisions access to the application on the user’s behalf through a secure, encrypted tunnel, providing an added layer of protection for applications and services by shielding otherwise publicly visible IP addresses.

"ZTNA improves the flexibility, agility, and scalability of application access enabling digital businesses to thrive without exposing internal applications directly to the internet, reducing risk of attack,” according to Gartner.

Barracuda initially launched Barracuda CloudGen Access in November 2020 following the company's acquisition of Fyde, a ZTNA provider based in Palo Alto, Calif., and Porto, Portugal. The addition of multi-tenant management and monthly pricing options for CloudGen Access makes it easier for MSPs to deploy and manage, while capturing value.

In addition, California-based Barracuda Networks unveiled key updates to its scalable, cloud-based remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform.

"As organizations continue to adapt to hybrid work scenarios to support their growing remote workforces, the introduction of Barracuda CloudGen Access and enhancements to Barracuda RMM are  necessary next steps in our commitment to supporting MSPs in their security-centric journey," said Brian Babineau, senior vice president and general manager of MSP Solutions for Barracuda, in a statement. "By enabling MSPs to adopt a security-centric operational model, we are helping them to better mitigate the security risks associated with the work-from-anywhere approach and creating new business opportunities for them to deliver more flexible, secure access to valuable data, and streamline data protection operations.”

With Barracuda CloudGen Access, MSPs can expand their security services to protect customers resources and implement control for any unmanaged BYOD devices, without making changes to customers existing workflows. MSPs can also demonstrate increased value and strengthen the security posture of their customers by safeguarding against a breach caused by a potentially insecure or compromised device.

To learn more about how managed service providers (MSPs) can bolster cyber-security, make plans to attend MSPEXPO, part of the #TECHSUPERSHOW series. MSPEXPO has been designed to help service providers understand how they can drive more recurring revenue, increase the valuation of their companies, grow and protect their networks and deliver better customer service. It will also help companies looking for MSP partners to understand how MSPs can help them grow. The show will take place from June 22 to 25, 2021 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. For more information or to register, visit the show website.
