Founded in 2017, Sonian flogs cloud archiving and analytics products. Barracuda says buying it is part of a cunning plan to bolster its channel presence
It means that Barracuda can add to the data protection capabilities its platform already has around Office 365.
The Sonian platform was designed with OEMs and managed service providers (MSP) in mind.
Barracuda CEO BJ Jenkins said that Sonian had done a great job of building and delivering a native cloud platform designed to meet the needs of partners and customers.
He said that Sonian’s analytics and AI can be integrated with Barracuda’s data protection to provide a more complete market solution.
Barracuda said that Sonian brings with it over 32,000 new customers and many large MSP partnerships.
Sonian CEO Tim McKinnon said: “The potential of Sonian’s technology and go-to-market model combined with Barracuda’s scale and complementary products creates a powerful value proposition for both partners and customers.”
