Barracuda Networks Inc recently launched a new Data Protection Plus strategic initiative, aimed at helping customers access, retain and share critical data from anywhere and any device, the cloud-connected security and storage solutions provider announced on September 9, 2014.
As part of this initiative, Barracuda is announcing several major enhancements and new releases across its portfolio of cloud-connected backup, archiving and productivity solutions, as well as the acquisition of C2C Systems, a provider of information management, email archiving and PST management solutions.
According to Barracuda, its acquisition of C2C Systems allows the company to offer customers a more complete information management and archiving product portfolio to simplify IT and control storage costs. This addition also enables Barracuda to help eliminate risks associated with distributed PST files, reduce eDiscovery overhead via information management and early investigation, and support information management and governance initiatives via extended retention management policies.
It added that customers can now simplify their IT infrastructure and centrally manage solutions across the Barracuda portfolio - regardless of the size or type of deployment - through integrated, easy-to-use web interfaces that support configuration, monitoring and reporting.
"Today's modern workplace is more virtualised, cloud enabled and mobile. One of IT's biggest challenges is to ensure business applications are up and running - promoting application availability, productivity and collaboration - often with limited time and resources," said Rod Mathews, GM Storage at Barracuda.
"Protecting the modern workplace demands a new way of thinking. Data Protection Plus enables and accelerates the use of virtualisation, cloud and mobile technologies, and represents the latest innovation across our storage product line. Barracuda continues to make it easy for our customers to access, retain and share their critical information," he added.
