Barracuda gains network storage foothold

Barracuda Networks has released new message archiving systems intended to push its launch into the network storage area. The systems are designed to help organisations with litigation concerns, by providing them with easy access to inter-office emails.

Melbourne-based Australia and New Zealand national sales manager John Bellarts says the company is well known for anti-spam security and web filtering.

“Now we want to go across the board in storage. The price of archiving has come down in the past few years.”

The company’s US-based vice-president of Asia Pacific sales, Niall King, says the drivers for developing the message archiver were litigation and discovery requests.

“When there is some sort of litigation going on between companies, people need to know who sent what to whom. One of the methods of sending information is by email, so there needs to be a document of all emails sent and received. In the United States there are federal regulations, while in New Zealand there is a lot of talk around having requirements to make sure there are backups for companies.”

King says archiving is one thing, but the most important aspect is being able to retrieve email.

“By integrating with the built-in capabilities of email servers, including Microsoft Exchange, the message archiver can capture all emails.”

Another feature of the archiver is what the company calls Energize Updates.

“We want to update virus definitions, because the emails that you are storing on the archiver may have viruses and that’s not good. Message archiver can also block emails going from the company to a web-based email service, because obviously you wouldn’t want company information going out to a Hotmail account,” says King.

Message archiver is available in three models through local distributor MPA.

The essential difference between the three models is the storage space, ranging from half a terabyte to one terabyte and two terabytes.

MPA managing director Steve Macmillan says the company is seeing demand from customers already.

“We expect in the next four to eight weeks to have sales underway. The good thing about the solution is companies can go to external storage, so if you get to a limit of one or two terabytes it doesn’t mean you have to go and buy another unit.”
