Barracuda Networks, Andrew Brearton, Regional Director for Barracuda MSP

Cybersecurity is one of the major constants in our 21st century lives. In fact, reports such as from tech giant Microsoft, show attacks have risen in line with the rapid global shifts to people living, studying, and working from home due to COVID-19 shutdowns. As everyone’s lives changed overnight, the threat of cyberattacks has multiplied significantly. Although many experts affirm the potency of risk for cyberattacks, the reality is that a significant element of cybersecurity is tied to proactive behaviors, similar to those preventative steps we take to protect our physical health. A fundamental means of overcoming cyber threats is proactivity on the part of users, which doesn’t always happen.

During the upcoming session with Barracuda Networks, our guest speakers will discuss how their Managed Service Provider partners are leveraging the Barracuda Portfolio, improving their customer’s security posture and reducing their overhead management. During the presentation, they will review how to become a Barracuda MSP partner, a brief overview of their portfolio, and a deep dive into their Email Protection Services.
