Customers in these countries can now locally store and restore Microsoft 365 data in Azure with Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup technology

CAMPBELL, Calif.  – NOV. 14, 2022 — / / — Barracuda Networks, Inc., a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-first security solutions, today announced two new Azure regions for its data protection services, Sweden and Switzerland, to meet growing customer demand in these countries. The new regions will cover Gävle (Sweden) and Zurich (Switzerland North) and mean that customers can now choose from 13 Azure regions for the storage of data backed up via Cloud-to-Cloud Backup.

The regions are particularly relevant for organizations in regulated industries or in countries with strict data protection laws. In a recent study conducted by Barracuda, organizations named data protection as a key security and regulatory concern. Nearly 7 in 10 (69%) of respondents said they were concerned about backup data being stored outside their geography (geo residency), and more than 7 in 10 worried about compliance with data privacy requirements.

Barracuda’s Cloud-to-Cloud Backup Software-as-a-Service product line protects data stored in Microsoft 365, delivering a fast search and restore experience for Microsoft 365 data, including Teams, Exchange Online, SharePoint, and OneDrive. It offers scale and resiliency, fast performance, and wide global coverage to protect Office 365 data born in the cloud. New business sales for Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup are growing at 34% year-over-year, including 87% growth in international sales, according to Q2, FY23 results.

“At Barracuda, we continue to invest in our global infrastructure in order to help organizations protect their networks, applications, and data against prevalent and emerging threats,” said Chris Ross, CRO at Barracuda. “As more organizations move to the cloud, they are looking not just to protect their backed-up data but to store that data locally to help meet industry, national, and international regulatory and compliance demands. With the new Azure regions in Sweden and Switzerland, we are further enhancing the service we provide to customers.”
