Barracuda Networks partners CMS to help fish for more MSPs

Barracuda Networks wants to see more growth from its managed service provider department and signed up 6c3b7ef950-komodo-055CMS Distribution.

Barracuda has been growing the number of managed service providers it works with, building on the technology it acquired with the Intronis purchase 15 months ago.

The idea of signing up CMS Distribution is to help it reach even more MSPs across the UK and Ireland with the distributor offering cloud security and data protection.

Barracuda has spiced up its line-up with a next-generation firewall and managed backup appliance to the services it can offer partners and has found that its partner numbers have been swelling.

The vendor has made no secret of its plans to expand its channel base and the CMS signing is part of that strategy but should also appeal to the resellers that work with the distributor.

CMS Distribution software solutions group director Justin Griffiths said that Barracuda MSP offered a stable and scalable platform for our partners who are interested in breaking into the MSP market and to our existing MSP partners wanting to expand their portfolio.
