Barracuda security solutions win IDC praise
Dubai, December 6, 2012
US-based Barracuda Networks, a leader in IT security solutions, announced that its products were recognised for their flexible yet comprehensive ability to protect users online by IDC, a global market intelligence firm.
The report IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Web Security Products 2011-2012 Vendor Analysis analyses the quantitative and qualitative characteristics that explain a vendor's success in the marketplace.
The Barracuda Web security solutions that were highlighted in the report include the Barracuda Web Filter, Barracuda Web Security Service, Barracuda Web Security Agent and Barracuda Safe Browser.
According to International Data Corporation (IDC), market demands for Web security solutions have changed and must address a much broader set of functions.
The report goes on to explain, "Explosive growth of Web-based technologies in the enterprise (i.e., social media, mobile apps, software-as-a-service/cloud infrastructure) and the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenon are forcing rapid change on the Web security market."
"Web security requirements continue to evolve," said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management at Barracuda Networks.
"While the current challenges we're addressing are around the expanding corporate perimeter, mobility and the changes in Web 2.0, our basic philosophy is that we should solve our customers' Web security issues, including new ones, without additional options or fees. It's how we do business, and we appreciate IDC's recognition as a leader for it."
Barracuda Networks was praised for supporting all major features of secure Web gateways: URL filtering, antimalware, social media/Web 2.0 controls and content inspection. – TradeArabia News Service
