Web applications have become a key part of how businesses of all sizes operate, particularly as more data and apps move to the cloud. But they’re also vulnerable targets.

According to WhiteHat Security’s 2017 Application Security Statistics Report, 75 percent of attacks target applications, and 25 percent attack the network perimeter. But for most companies, security spending doesn’t match up to that reality. The report shows that 90 percent of security investment is in perimeter security, and just 10 percent of security investment is in application security.

Introducing Managed PhishLine

Posted by Anne Campbell on Jul 11, 2018 9:36:48 AM

How confident are you that your SMB customers and their employees know how to recognize a phishing attack? Most likely the answer is not very.

The solution? Better security awareness training. In the email security trends report, 98 percent of respondents said there are better ways to train employees than traditional classroom-style education.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce Managed PhishLine, a new service for MSPs. To give you an inside look at the new addition to our professional services offering and how it can help your business, we talked to Jayne Haggard from the Managed PhishLine team.

Barracuda and PhishLine – What it means for MSPs

Posted by Anne Campbell on Jan 12, 2018 11:52:06 AM

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.
