Company Offers Discounted Pricing for Its Web Security and Backup Service Solutions to Schools
CAMPBELL, CA, March 16, 2011 –(Marketwire)– Barracuda Networks Inc., a leading provider of content security, data protection and application delivery solutions, this week launched an initiative to help private and public K-12 schools, school districts and state education agencies in North America to rid their networks of the complexity of tape backups and protect students online by harnessing the power of the cloud through its Barracuda Backup Service and Barracuda Web Security Flex solutions.
“In an environment where more is expected, but fewer resources are provided, and where students and staff can access the Web from campus, district offices, and home, the cloud can be a powerful tool for secure Web browsing and data protection for K-12 customers,” said Michael Hughes, vice president of worldwide sales for Barracuda Networks. “Barracuda Networks recognizes that tight budgets often prohibit customers in the education market from fully exploring valuable technologies and solutions. With our ‘Think Cloud’ campaign, we are enabling our partners to work with their K-12 customers to educate them on the technological benefits and cost-efficiencies of moving to the cloud.”
As part of the Barracuda Networks “Think Cloud” campaign, Barracuda Networks is offering a 20 percent discount on the Barracuda Backup Service, which provides full local data backup combined with offsite storage, and 30 percent off on the Barracuda Web Security Flex, which delivers advanced cloud-based malware protection, URL filtering and application control with the flexible deployment options.
“School IT organizations must evolve with the shifting technology needs of students, teachers and administrators who are now equipped with extremely capable and powerful mobile technology,” said Jeffrey Bajgot, executive vice president and CTO of the Center for Educational Leadership and Technology (CELT). “Continuous mobile device endpoint security and content filtering delivered via flexible cloud-based platforms that provide protection regardless of location will solve a key concern with supporting the mobility movement.
“In addition, an advantage of new cloud-deployed solutions is unified and single cloud-based management, which streamlines the management and reporting functions while reducing the administrative burden on the IT organization,” added Bajgot.
Flexible, Easy Deployment and Management
Barracuda Web Security Flex includes a unified management framework via the Barracuda Portal for global policy enforcement and centralized reporting, across all locations and devices. The portal includes directory integration for group- or individual-based policies, pre-defined security policies, and a wealth of security, compliance and usage reports.
