In a recent study conducted by the Ponemon Institute, 54 percent of the SMBs surveyed pointed to a negligent employee or contractor as the root cause of a data breach their business experienced, and 43 percent pointed to third-party mistakes.

Ongoing user education can make a significant difference in how many of your small business customers are affected by cyber attacks and data breaches. That’s why we’re excited about Barracuda’s recent acquisition of PhishLine, a social engineering simulation and training platform.

What is a cloud generation firewall?

Posted by Anne Campbell on Nov 15, 2017 10:31:18 AM

As businesses adopt more public cloud solutions over time, MSPs need to be prepared to protect customers’ data in this new environment. An important part of that is understanding the difference between the security requirements of the public cloud and an on-premises network. Working with partners that have deep security experience and offer solutions designed specifically for the public cloud will help MSPs make this transition successfully.

That’s why we’re excited to share that Barracuda recently introduced expanded public cloud functionality for both the Barracuda NextGen Firewall and the Barracuda Web Application Firewall. These updated firewalls allow for usage-based billing and automated security controls for DevSecOps workflows, features that help simplify the path to the public cloud for MSPs and their customers.
