CAMPBELL, Calif., Nov. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --


    --  Barracuda's MSP division saw strong sales performance through Q2 FY2022,
        driven by key product advancements including Zero Trust Network Access

        Managed XDR to MSP partners in Australia and New Zealand.

Barracuda Networks, Inc., a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced several key product milestones and sales growth achievements for its MSP business, which was accelerated by the increasing number of MSPs adding security to their services portfolio.

Driven by the acquisition of SKOUT Cybersecurity for extended detection and response (XDR), new integrations for Barracuda RMM, and the introduction of Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) capabilities for managed service providers (MSPs) through Barracuda CloudGen Access, annual recurring revenue for Barracuda MSP grew 70% year-over-year at the end of Q2 FY2022.

Recent MSP Innovation Highlights:

    --  Managed XDR and SOC: In July, Barracuda acquired SKOUT Cybersecurity, a
        leader in cyber-as-a-service software for Managed Service Providers
        (MSPs) and provider of an extended detection and response (XDR) platform
        and service. With the acquisition Barracuda entered the fast-growing XDR
        market with a solution optimized for MSPs. The service is now available
        as Barracuda SKOUT Managed XDR.
    --  New XDR integration: Barracuda SKOUT Managed XDR now empowers MSPs to

        --  Change administrator roles
    --  International expansion: In addition to partners in the Americas and
        EMEA, partners in Australia and New Zealand now have access to the full
        software portfolio of offerings available from Barracuda's Managed XDR
        business, including authentication, endpoint protection, email, and
        network security solutions. Now, partners in the Australia-New Zealand
        region can prevent, detect, and respond to threats using our 24x7 SOC,
        making it easy to add security to their portfolios.
    --  Barracuda RMM enhancements: In August, Barracuda announced key updates
        to Barracuda RMM, the company's security-centric, cloud-based remote
        monitoring and management (RMM) platform. Key highlights of the release
        include new integrations with Windows Defender Antivirus, updates to
        Microsoft and third-party software patch management functionality,
        enhanced integration with Barracuda Intronis Backup, and ServiceNow

        solutions and services for IT managed service providers to include
        Barracuda CloudGen Access for MSPs. 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.
