Intronis by Barracuda Releases New Appliance and Branding
Backup technology vendor Intronis, as part of its acquisition by Barracuda, has launched a new appliance for MSPs, along with a fresh brand, now that it is part of the Barracuda corporate structure. Intronis, now known as Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda, has developed a subscription-based hardware solution, Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition. Available now in North America, Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition uses Barracuda’s backup technology to provide MSPs with an appliance-based solution for their customers.
Barracuda Backup - Intronis MSP Edition
With the launch of the Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition, the provider also announced its new brand name, Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda. The new corporate branding enables the MSP-favorite to leverage Barracuda’s international brand recognition and rich heritage in developing industry-leading solutions that provide businesses with end-to-end protection for their critical data and business applications. In September 2015, Barracuda announced the acquisition of Intronis with the goal of extending its channel reach into the fast-growing MSP market and meeting the increasing data protection and security demands of MSPs and their customers. The new brand name also reflects the growing synergy between the two organizations and a continued commitment to MSP partners and the larger IT channel.
Intronis was acquired in October 2015 by Barracuda
“Proactively protecting a customer’s business, and in particular its data, is fast becoming priority one for MSPs,” said Rick Faulk, vice president and general manager, MSP Solutions, at Barracuda. “Our new Barracuda Backup – Intronis MSP Edition marks the first milestone in our journey with Barracuda and expands our ability to serve as the MSP’s single-source provider of data protection. Together with Barracuda and our channel partners, we are striving to meet the needs of customers and ensure no business fails due to data loss or an IT security breach.”
