Cloud security and data protection solutions vendor Barracuda Networks has launched its managed service provider (MSP) business into Australia and New Zealand as it looks to expand and strengthen business in the region.

Barracuda also announced its release of Managed Workplace 12, the latest version of its security-centric remote monitoring and management (RMM) solution.

Barracuda said on Friday it has appointed a local team in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to support MSP partners in Australia and New Zealand – and as the MSP business continues to grow it is committed to expanding the local team to meet the needs of partners.

Barracuda says it is also deploying product operations including Managed Workplace and components of its email protection portfolio within the region.

“Australia and New Zealand are very important markets for Barracuda as we continue to extend our position as a cloud security and data protection solution provider,” said Andrew Huntley, Regional Sales Director for ANZ and Pacific Islands for Barracuda.

“The introduction of our MSP business is an exciting chapter for us, opening new doors to broaden our reach with the local market.

“We’re committed to working with our MSP partners in the best possible way so they can offer their customers advanced protection against data loss and IT security breaches.”

Huntley said Barracuda’s MSP portfolio approach has been very successful in the global marketplace and is a key growth area, growing its international MSP partner base nearly 50% over the past year - and with the number of global MSPs using multiple Barracuda solutions increasing 35% year-over-year by September 2019.

“We’re focused on empowering MSPs to create highly relevant services, deliver profitable solutions and demonstrate value to their customers,” said Jason Howells, director, International MSP Business at Barracuda.

“In addition to our international expansion, our portfolio innovation continues at an unparalleled pace, enabling our MSP partners to offer new services to their customers, as showcased by our recent release of Barracuda Managed Workplace.”
