Virtual license portability added to Barracuda security products

Cloud security and storage vendor adds ability to transfer for further flexibility.

Barracuda Networks has introduced license portability for the virtual products in its security product line-up.

Security general manager, Steve Pao, said customers can now purchase a virtual license and transfer it to other private or public virtual platforms at no additional cost.

“Offering investment protection, it gives customers deployment flexibility and provides the ability to transfer the virtual license from a public Cloud to their private Cloud environment, or between public Cloud services,” he said.

Premises-based virtual environments such as VMware, Citrix and Microsoft, and public Cloud deployments in Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure are compatible with the virtual license.

Making it simpler

A May 2014 survey by Tech Pro Research, Hybrid Cloud: Benefits, roadblocks, favoured vendors, found 70 per cent of respondents are implementing or evaluating a hybrid Cloud solution.

Pao said the new virtual license portability is designed to take existing flexible deployment options for on-premises, Cloud, and hybrid environments further.

“It further simplifies this migration by enabling hybrid Cloud deployments across private and public Cloud environments, providing the security, reliability, control and flexibility that an organisation needs,” he said.

Barracuda virtual license portability is available from August 3 on the Spam Firewall Vx and Web Application Firewall Vx offerings, with virtual license portability to extend to other products as additional Barracuda public Cloud offerings become available.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
