Barracuda Enhances its Managed Services Offerings with Barracuda Content Shield

CEO Insights team

Barracuda Networks, a leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, announces the integration of its Barracuda Content Shield with Managed Workplace – its Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform. The Managed Service Providers (MSPs) using the RMM can now leverage the cloud-based web security solution’s web filtering and malware protection to better protect their customers’ end users from web-borne threats. Through its robust content filtering, malware protection, granular policy enforcement and reporting, Barracuda Content Shield will work with existing antivirus (AV) solutions to protect against malicious files, stopping malware before it reaches the endpoint.

This integration is sure to help MSPs by enhancing their end-user online security service offerings with agent-based DNS and URL filtering, protect their customers’ end-users from web-borne threats and get at-a-glance visibility into threats prevented across all customers. Furthermore, the combination of the two tools would enable MSPs to benefit from a centralized view of the threats detected and quarantined.

Commenting on this development, Brian Babineau, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Barracuda MSP, says, “A recent survey by Spiceworks found that when companies don’t restrict internet activity, 58 percent of employees will spend at least four hours per week on websites unrelated to their jobs.” He adds to it, “And earlier this year, a study found that 40 percent of malicious URLs were located on good domains. These and other statistics point to the need for robust, easy-to-manage web content filtering that protects end-users from web-borne threats. Barracuda is answering that call with the integration of Barracuda Content Shield within Managed Workplace, a move that illustrates our commitment to providing our partners with a broad portfolio of security and data protection solutions spanning web, network, and e-mail, and backed by our global threat intelligence.”

With more than 150000 organizations worldwide trusting Barracuda with their security, this new & integrated SaaS-based solution is a sure bet towards taking their business to the next level.
