Cloud security, networking and storage vendor Barracuda Networks has launched its MSP business in Australia and New Zealand.

Barracuda MSP is a dedicated unit of the vendor that focuses on IT service provider partners and delivering security and data protection via its purpose-built MSP platform.

To support the launch, Barracuda has appointed dedicated staff in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney to support MSPs in Australia and New Zealand. Specifically, these include a regional account director in Brisbane, a solutions engineer in Sydney and a field marketing manager in Melbourne.

These appointments are in addition to Barracuda's existing local teams and the vendor also has support staff from Barracuda’s APAC office in Hong Kong dedicated to the A/NZ MSP market.

In a statement, the company said it is ready to further grow those teams as required to meet partners' needs.

"Australia and New Zealand are very important markets for Barracuda as we continue to extend our position as a cloud security and data protection solution provider," said Andrew Huntley, regional sales director for A/NZ and Pacific Islands for Barracuda. 

"The introduction of our MSP business is an exciting chapter for us, opening new doors to broaden our reach with the local market. We’re committed to working with our MSP partners in the best possible way so they can offer their customers advanced protection against data loss and IT security breaches."

Barracuda said that its MSP approach has so far been successful globally resulting in a growth of its international MSP partner base nearly 50 per cent over the past year and the number of global MSPs using multiple Barracuda solutions increased 35 per cent year-over-year as of September 2019.

"We’re focused on empowering MSPs to create highly relevant services, deliver profitable solutions and demonstrate value to their customers,” said Jason Howells, director, international MSP business at Barracuda.
