Basingstoke, Hants – April 18, 2016 – Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA) today announced that it has expanded its reach and resources into the UK partner channel, with the launch of its Intronis MSP Solutions in the UK. Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda (Intronis MSP Solutions) includes innovative backup and data protection solutions for managed service providers (MSPs), as well as the recently announced Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition. The launch builds upon the success of the Intronis ECHOplatform in North America, where more than 2,000 MSP partners use the award-winning platform to service thousands of small and medium-sized businesses.
Intronis MSP Solutions empowers MSPs to centrally deploy and manage a broad portfolio of data protection services from a fully rebrandable console. Powered by the Intronis ECHOplatform, these solutions enable MSPs to protect their customers’ business-critical files, folders, email, applications, and servers, locally and in the cloud. The Intronis ECHOplatform is provided at a fixed monthly fee for the entire product suite, without limiting MSPs’ customers’ local storage or number of devices protected. The Intronis ECHOplatform is operational from a UK data center.
“SMBs are up against budget constraints, data overload and a lack of IT resources. As a result, they are looking to service providers for data protection solutions that are cost effective, yet feature-rich and easy to use,” said Andy Cocking, Director at Computeam, a service provider for the education sector. “There are a number of disaster recovery and backup options on the market, but what we really like about the Intronis ECHOplatform is that we can manage multiple solutions through a single portal and dashboard. This has really helped us streamline management and provide customized service bundles to our clients.”
“We are excited to bring our awarding-winning Intronis MSP Solutions to IT service providers in the UK,” said Rick Faulk, vice president and general manager, MSP Solutions at Barracuda. “The UK is familiar territory for Barracuda, and the award-winning Intronis ECHOplatform is now operational in our UK data center. Barracuda aims to help emerging and established MSPs in the UK simplify service delivery with easy-to-manage, secure data protection solutions that are relevant, reliable, and help bring them more recurring revenue.”
“We have a dynamic and vibrant MSP community in the UK, and demand for simple and secure data protection solutions is growing rapidly. I look forward to expanding Barracuda’s channel in the UK to build this business, and engaging with MSPs to help them grow and add greater value to their managed services portfolio,” commented Jason Howells, EMEA sales director, Intronis MSP Solutions at Barracuda.
This launch marks the first expansion for Intronis MSP Solutions outside of North America.
