The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2020-09-22T21:00:00Z 43% of Australian and New Zealand organisations say security has taken a back seat in shift to remote working, despite increasing threats 2020-09-22T21:00:00Z 43-of-australian-and-new-zealand-organisations-say-security-has-taken-a-back-seat-in-shift-to-remote-working-despite-increasing-threats Sydney, 23 September 2020 — Barracuda, a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today released key findings from a report titled: “Brave the new normal: How companies in Asia Pacific are overcoming security challenges in a remote workplace.” The research revealed that 39% of organisations surveyed in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) do not have an up-to-date security strategy or solutions covering all the vulnerabilities posed by remote working, while 43% admitted that security has taken a back seat in the shift to this mode of working. The market report was commissioned by Barracuda and conducted by independent research firm Censuswide in July 2020. 1,055 business decision makers in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and India were surveyed to gain insights into their current mindset about future of work trends resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. 402 respondents are from ANZ. “While organisations in ANZ are riding a wave of digital transformation to support the shift to remote working, many have been impacted by major security concerns that have emerged,” said Mark Lukie, sales engineer manager – APAC at Barracuda. “Despite this, security has taken a back seat in many organisations due to budget and resource constraints. Threat protection must get the attention it deserves to avoid causing reputational and financial damage at a time when most companies can least afford it.” The report revealed that 36% of ANZ organisations cut their cybersecurity budgets to save costs as they responded to the pandemic. In addition, 35% lacked IT resources or time to upgrade their IT infrastructure in the shift to a remote working model. This highlights the need for organisations to find ways to prioritise spending on critical controls, whether that involves consolidating vendors, investing in SaaS-based tools or assessing how automation could help free budget and resources for security. This is critical given employees may often be more distracted when working remotely, coupled with a lack of protection on home devices and networks, making them more susceptible to cybersecurity attacks. 38% of ANZ organisations surveyed reported at least one data breach or cyber security incident since shifting to remote working, with 41% reporting that employees had experienced an increase in email phishing attacks. 60% are concerned about unknown threats that will cause business disruption in the next 6 months. According to the report, 42% of ANZ respondents said their employees are not properly trained in the cyber risks associated with remote working. In addition, 37% are not confident in the security of their web applications, which is another major target for malicious third parties seeking to access corporate data. The good news is that most ANZ decision makers are aware of the problems relating to their remote working security posture and have a clear idea of how they can improve it. 68% believe that cross-industry collaboration is key to improving security standards. 66% said that they will need to upgrade their IT infrastructure to improve visibility and productivity. 59% plan to provide improved online cybersecurity training and awareness for remote working staff.

This is particularly the case in the retail, catering & leisure (80%), manufacturing & utilities (75%), IT & telecommunications (69%), education (67%) and travel & transportation (67%) industries. Conducted by independent research agency Censuswide and commissioned by Barracuda, the Asia Pacific study of 1,055 business decision makers in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and India was conducted in July 2020 to gain insights into the current mindset of business leaders about the opportunities and challenges regarding future of work trends resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. 202 respondents are from Australia.The study revealed that the mindset of business leaders in Australia has now shifted to optimism, with 77% planning to keep remote working in place for employee productivity and business continuity once the pandemic is over for a more flexible and hybrid workplace. This sentiment is shared by both SMEs (74%) and larger enterprises (80%).“This is a significant shift in thinking among business leaders in Australia as they realise the positive impact a remote working model has had on overall business productivity,” said Andrew Huntley, regional director of ANZ and Pacific Islands for Barracuda. “Many have been forced to accelerate their digital transformation and cloud adoption efforts to support this shift, which is putting them in good stead to recover from COVID-19, as well as create a new future for their business.”Despite the positive impact the shift to remote working has had on organisations in Australia, it also presents multilateral security challenges, with many not aware of the risks involved in connecting remotely.COVID-19 has accelerated digital transformation and cloud adoption According to the study, COVID-19 has been the catalyst for 58% of organisations in Australia to accelerate digital transformation plans in the next six months to ease the burdens placed on the traditional business model by remote working. This is particularly the case for larger enterprises (73%), with SMEs to a lesser extent (53%), although it’s still a significant shift in focus.A key component of this transformation is cloud computing. On average, 49% have fast tracked plans to move all data to a cloud-based model, particularly in the manufacturing & utilities (77%), IT and telecommunications (69%) and healthcare (67%) sectors within Australia. 61% believe this shift will help reduce overall IT costs to support business growth. The net result is an increase in overall business productivity for 52% of organisations in Australia since shifting to a remote workforce.Remote working presents multilateral security challengesThe study indicated that 36% of organisations in Australia have already had at least one data breach or cyber security incident since shifting to a remote working model, with 45% reporting that employees had experienced an increase in email phishing attacks. 37% of organisations expect an incident to occur in the next month and 68% concerned about unknown threats that will cause business disruption in the next six months.Alarmingly, 36% of organisations in Australia do not have an up-to-date cybersecurity strategy and solutions in place that cover all the vulnerabilities posed by full-time remote working. This is made more difficult by 51% allowing employees to use personal email addresses and personal devices to conduct company work.“Maintaining safe security practices is essential, but a step easily overlooked in the frantic rush to get everything set up to support remote working,” said Huntley. “More employees working from home means that more devices are connecting remotely, outside of the secured corporate network. It’s critical to understand what remote workers are doing with data that is rapidly going out of your control and rework the ‘new normal’ to make it more effective and more secure.” Barracuda research uncovers a specialised economy emerging around email account takeover 2020-07-23T21:07:28Z barracuda-research-uncovers-a-specialised-economy-emerging-around-email-account-takeover-1 Sydney, 24 July 2020 – Barracuda, a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today released key findings about the ways cybercriminals are attacking and exploiting email accounts. The report, titled Spear Phishing: Top Threats and Trends Vol. 4 - Insights into attacker activity in compromised email accounts, reveals a specialised economy emerging around email account takeover and takes an in-depth look at the threats organisations face and the types of defense strategies you need to have in place. Over the past year, Barracuda researchers teamed up with leading researchers at UC Berkeley to study the end-to-end lifecycle of a compromised account. Examining 159 compromised accounts that span 111 organisations, they looked at how the account takeover happens, how long attackers have access to the compromised account, and how attackers use and extract information from these accounts. Barracuda’s research found fresh insights into these widespread and dangerous attacks, how cybercriminals behave in compromised accounts, and how that should inform your organisation’s defense strategies. Highlights from the report include: More than one-third of the hijacked accounts analysed by researchers had attackers dwelling in the account for more than one week. 20% of compromised accounts appear in at least one online password data breach, which suggests that cybercriminals are exploiting credential reuse across employees’ personal and organisation accounts. In 31% of these compromises one set of attackers focuses on compromising accounts and then sells account access to another set of cybercriminals who focus on monetising the hijacked accounts. 78% of attackers did not access any applications outside of email. “Cybercriminals are getting stealthier and finding new ways to remain undetected in compromised accounts for long periods of time so they can maximise the ways they can exploit the account, whether that means selling the credentials or using the access themselves,” said Don MacLennan, SVP Engineering, Email Protection at Barracuda. “Being informed about attacker behaviour will help organisations put the proper protection in place so they can defend against these types of attacks and respond quickly if an account is compromised.” Resources: Download the full report: Spear Phishing: Top Threats and Trends Vol. 4 - Insights into attacker activity in compromised email accounts Read the blog post: http://cuda.co/40984 Read Vol. 1 - Best Practices to Defeat Evolving Attacks Read Vol. 2 - Email account takeover and defending against lateral phishing attacks Read Vol. 3 - Defending against business email compromise attacks About Barracuda At Barracuda we strive to make the world a safer place.

The new Barracuda CloudGen WAN service is the first SD-WAN solution that runs inside Azure Virtual WAN Hubs. Hubs can be interconnected through the Microsoft Global Network. This network architecture can replace costly, inflexible network connectivity circuits, and the entire network can be dynamically sized to match current traffic workload, which can optimise network performance and minimise cost. "A cloud-first strategy asks for a different approach on connectivity,” said Leon Sevriens, program manager, IT at Humankind, a large organisation in the Netherlands that offers daycare and after-school care, with over 3,000 employees and over 450 locations. “We have invested heavily in Microsoft Office 365 adoption across the organisation, and traditional connectivity doesn't fit the bill anymore. We need a solution that is focused on delivering application performance, not just 'plain' connectivity. That’s why we’re moving forward with Barracuda CloudGen WAN." In the recent report “Secure SD-WAN: The Launch Pad into Cloud,” Barracuda found that SD-WAN is being used by more than half of those who have added security to their public cloud. As the report explains, “SD-WAN can help overcome the top two security challenges organisations are facing when it comes to public cloud: lack of access control and backhauling traffic.” Cloud-native, secure SD-WAN The perimeter is changing, and organisations need to be ready to adapt. According to Gartner, “The enterprise perimeter is no longer a location; it is a set of dynamic edge capabilities delivered when needed as a service from the cloud.”1 Secure SD-WAN services built natively on the cloud combine ease of use, full security, and cloud-scalable SD-WAN connectivity to use the Microsoft Global Network as the WAN backbone instead of leased lines. The new Barracuda CloudGen WAN is a SaaS service deployed directly from the Azure Marketplace for as many regions as needed and administered centrally in the CloudGen WAN portal for all office locations and remote endpoints. Since the Microsoft Global Network is automatically provisioned as the backbone for anywhere, anytime application access, service providers can create a pragmatic secure access service edge (SASE) solution in the public cloud tailored to their specific needs. “With an all-in-one, secure SD-WAN solution natively built on the public cloud network, enterprises can finally make the shift to more public cloud deployments, both faster and more securely,” said Hatem Naguib, COO at Barracuda. “We appreciate the relationship we have developed with Microsoft over the years and the close collaboration over many months to integrate Barracuda SD-WAN technology natively on Microsoft Azure Virtual WAN Hubs. We know this is the future of networking in the public cloud, and we’re excited to be on this forefront with Microsoft.” Yousef Khalidi, Corporate Vice President, Azure Networking at Microsoft said, “Cloud-native, secure SD-WAN technology, like the new CloudGen WAN service from Barracuda, provides a fast, reliable, and direct path to Microsoft Azure. We’re pleased to collaborate with Barracuda for this new wave of faster public cloud adoption to help our joint customers optimise network performance.” For more information about Barracuda CloudGen WAN, visit https://www.barracuda.com/products/cloudgenwan Resources: Read the Barracuda blog post: http://cuda.co/40855 Read the Microsoft blog post from Yousef Khalidi: https://aka.ms/vwan-sdwan Watch Reshmi Yandapalli’s session on “Use Azure networking services to accelerate, scale or re-architect your customer’s global network” for Microsoft Inspire: https://aka.ms/T4D193 Read the market report: https://www.barracuda.com/sdwan-report-2020 Find out why Barracuda was recognised as a finalist for Commercial Marketplace 2020 Microsoft Partner of the Year: http://cuda.co/40853 1 Gartner, “The Future of Network Security Is in the Cloud”, Neil MacDonald, Lawrence Orans, Joe Skorupa, 30 August 2019.

The global study of more than 750 IT decision makers was conducted by independent market research firm Vanson Bourne to gain insights into their current mindset regarding SD-WAN market trends, acquisition preferences and industry variations. The study included responses from 50 respondents in Australia. Vertical industry findings were only broken down by region and not country level – Asia Pacific figures are included in the following paragraph, representing 250 respondents. According to the study, 46% of Asia Pacific respondents in the financial services industry are already using SD-WAN, with another 38% in the process of deploying or expecting to deploy within the next 12 months. This is followed by professional services and the media and entertainment industries. The construction industry has the lowest SD-WAN adoption in Asia Pacific, with no respondents currently using SD-WAN. However, 89% are in the process of deploying SD-WAN or expect to do so in the next 12 months. “It’s not surprising that financial services is leading the charge, as the industry moves to be more flexible, responsive, and agile in their approach to improving the availability and reliability of services they offer customers and employees,” said Andrew Huntley, regional director of ANZ and Pacific Islands for Barracuda. From an Australian perspective, the top three benefits cited by those that have deployed SD-WAN are improved network security (48%), network flexibility and agility (43%) and application performance (43%). The study indicates that secure SD-WAN fully integrated into public cloud is the solution of choice for Australian respondents. SD-WAN is currently being used by a quarter of Australian respondents for securing public cloud deployments, with another 40% wanting to add SD-WAN for protection. Acquiring SD-WAN via a cloud provider is the overwhelming preference for 43% of Australian respondents. In comparison, 20% prefer to get SD-WAN from an independent vendor; 20% from a telecommunications partner; and 11% from a value-added reseller. 5% had no preference. Microsoft Azure is the preferred public-cloud platform for 52% of Australian respondents, followed by Google Cloud Platform (22%) and Amazon Web Services (20%). Responses indicate that Microsoft Azure is perceived to be more secure and user friendly than other platforms. “As more Australian organisations move to the public cloud, SD-WAN technology is a critical part of securing these cloud deployments,” added Huntley. “By deploying an all-in-one, secure SD-WAN solution natively built into the public cloud network, organisations can reap the full benefits of public cloud.” For more information, please visit: https://www.barracuda.com/products/cloudgenfirewall/use_cases/sd-wan.

Third Annual MSP Day Highlights Global MSP Opportunities 2020-05-20T22:20:36Z third-annual-msp-day-highlights-global-msp-opportunities Sydney, 21 May 2020 - This year marks the third annual MSP Day, a movement Barracuda MSP started in 2018 to celebrate and champion the managed services industry and the changes and challenges it meets every year. To coincide with this year’s event, Barracuda MSP today launched its latest The Evolving Landscape of the MSP Business Report 2020. The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), a leading voice and advocate of the global IT ecosystem, will be joining Barracuda for the first MSP Day virtual event. CompTIA’s Director of Member Communities, Miles Jobgen, will join Barracuda’s Director International MSP, Jason Howells, and VP MSP Strategic Partnerships, Neal Bradbury, to discuss this year’s report, alongside a host of videos and discussions on the state of the industry. The 2020 report takes a deep dive into the global MSP market as channel partners the world over are presented with the opportunity to bolster their security offering to better support the new, more vulnerable mobile workforce that has emerged in the wake of COVID-19. Almost 300 global MSPs were interviewed, spanning the UK, US, Germany, Canada, Ireland, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand and Spain. The findings revealed that regardless of location, MSPs across the globe are facing similar challenges when it comes to provision and the growth opportunities around future security offerings. Key findings: The majority of MSPs plan to expand their services portfolio in 2020. A significant 91 per cent of MSP’s said they were planning to increase the breadth and depth of their services capacity in the next 12 months. Managed services look to be the top revenue generator for the vast majority of respondents. 69 percent of respondents identified managed services as the biggest opportunity for increasing sales in 2020. This is significantly up since 2019, which saw 54 percent noting managed services as their biggest opportunity. MSP’s favour a hybrid approach to services. 53 percent of respondents expect to generate more than half (51 percent) or more of their business through managed services in 2020, with approximately another 45 percent saying they expected to generate up to 50 percent of business through managed services. Security services are higher up the agenda for MSPs this year. Endpoint Security, Email Security and Network Security all made it into the top five services table in 2020. In contrast, in 2019 email security was the only security service to make the top five. Rising security concerns and a lack of in-house skills within end user customers are driving the need for third party service providers. A majority 79 percent of MSPs felt customer security concerns were a good opportunity, particularly with the rise of remote workers. 72 percent said the lack of in-house security skills among their customers was also creating new revenue possibilities. The vast majority agree that demand for managed security services is increasing. 88 percent of those questioned said that demand for security services was either ‘moderately’ or ‘significantly’ increasing. This year’s findings once again indicate significant positive shifts in MSP perception, growth and adoption as end users look to recruit cost effective and trusted cybersecurity skills to address their own skills gap and protect their data from increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals. “Since launching MSP Day, and the corresponding Evolving MSP Landscape report, we’ve witnessed a steady rise in the appetite for managed services throughout the world, which is evident in this year’s findings,” says Brian Babineau, SVP and GM, MSP Solutions, Barracuda. “Among that appetite, security is the most sought after service, particularly given our current global situation and the willingness of cybercriminals to exploit organisations that are suddenly much more vulnerable.” “Security as a managed service is only going to become more sought after as organisations continue to wrestle with a shortage of skills and adjust to new working conditions, presenting a huge opportunity for MSPs to bolster their portfolios and cement themselves further as vital partners to their customer base,” adds Carolyn April, Senior Director, Industry Analysis at CompTIA. “Despite the skills gap and the pressure of consolidation for many, this report portrays a growing opportunity for the MSPs of the world as adoption of managed services continues to rise - of which security offerings are the leading commodity.” “Now in its third year, MSP Day has quickly become the event of the year for MSPs looking to capitalise on these and future opportunities,” April continues.

Security remains the biggest roadblock to adoption for 80 percent of respondents, higher than the global average of 70 percent. The global study of 750 global IT decision makers was conducted by Vanson Bourne in December 2019 to capture their experiences with moving infrastructure to the public cloud, concerns restricting adoption, as well as the security and networking solutions being implemented to overcome them. The study involved 50 respondents in Australia. “While adoption rates for public cloud continue to grow, security is still the leading roadblock for Australian organisations, which is understandable considering the volume and variety of threats they face today,” said Andrew Huntley, regional director of ANZ and Pacific Islands for Barracuda. According to the survey, the leading cloud security concerns for Australian organisations include the security of public cloud infrastructure (42 percent), the impact of cyberattacks (28 percent), shadow IT (28 percent) and the security of applications deployed in public cloud (24 percent). Australian respondents indicated that the greatest threats to their public cloud infrastructure include open vulnerabilities in cloud applications (44 percent); sophisticated hackers (38 percent); ransomware (38 percent) and corporate network exposure to intrusions/attacks (38 percent). Sixty-eight percent of Australian respondents have already been targeted by a cyberattack, which is lower than the global average of 75 percent. After security, integration/network concerns come in second for Australian organisations in terms of public cloud adoption. This includes integrating public cloud with legacy technologies, better integration with private cloud, and enhanced integration with on-premises infrastructure. The survey also revealed that secure software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN) fully integrated into public cloud is the solution of choice. Twelve percent of Australian respondents have already deployed SD-WAN, with another 50 percent either in the process of deploying or expecting to deploy within the next 12 months. SD-WAN is being used by a quarter of those who have added security to their public cloud. “As more IT infrastructure moves to public cloud, providers will offer more native network capabilities and public cloud will expand to include more network functionality,” Huntley said. “The vast majority of Australian organisations need their security vendors to offer advanced security and cloud connectivity tightly integrated with the major cloud platforms.” Download the full report: Future shock: the cloud is the new network.

Barracuda announces expanded email protection availability zones in Australia 2020-02-12T22:44:26Z barracuda-announces-expanded-email-protection-availability-zones-in-australia Sydney – 13 February 2020 – Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced expanded availability zones in Australia, to meet growing demand for Barracuda’s email protection and better serve local organisations. Barracuda’s email security scanning and cloud archiving services are now provisioned through additional availability zones in Australia, enabling email messages, logs and settings to be stored locally. These new availability zones for email security scanning and cloud archiving build on the capabilities already provided by Barracuda’s existing local protection in Australia for email backup, Office 365 backup, web application firewalls and advanced threat protection. “This is a significant milestone for our Australian business to better serve all of our local customers, particularly those operating in regulated industries that face local data requirements,” said Andrew Huntley, regional sales director of ANZ and Pacific Islands for Barracuda. “As more organisations move to the cloud, they’re looking to protect their email communications, while storing data locally to meet data requirements and policies.” Barracuda has experienced strong email protection bookings growth in Australia at a rate of 361 percent in calendar year 2019 over 2018. Huntley continued, “The local data storage for our email scanning and cloud archiving services has been the missing piece in the puzzle for our local business. We now have the potential for accelerated growth in Australia, as well as New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.” Australian organisations bound by industry requirements and data protection laws now can take advantage of innovative email protection from Barracuda to protect against sophisticated attacks like phishing, account takeover and conversation hijacking. A recent report from the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner found that 44 percent of cyber incidents reported in Australia in the second quarter of 2019 were linked to compromised credentials through phishing. “Barracuda’s decision to offer expanded availability zones for local data residency provides our clients with the comfort of knowing their data is stored within Australia,” said James Walker, managing director and lead IT strategist at Computer One. “Computer One has partnered with Barracuda since 2004 and this announcement further bolsters our commitment to the company’s world-class cloud email security and archiving solutions.” About Barracuda At Barracuda we strive to make the world a safer place.

Barracuda MSP announces strong performance internationally 2019-12-04T21:30:00Z barracuda-msp-announces-strong-performance-internationally Highlights: ● Barracuda’s billings for MSP security solutions outside North America increased 249 percent year over year, as of October 2019 ● Barracuda’s annualised recurring revenue for MSP focused email protection solutions has increased 318% percent outside North America over the year ● Barracuda now works with over 850 international MSPs across 35 countries ● The number of global MSPs using multiple Barracuda solutions increased 47 percent year-over-year (as of the end of October 2019) Sydney, 5 December 2019 - Barracuda Networks, Inc., a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced significant growth across APAC and EMEA for its MSP business for FY2020 to date. Alongside this strong performance, Barracuda MSP also continued its global expansion, launching operations in Australia and New Zealand, and continued its product innovation with the release of Managed Workplace 12, the latest version of its security-centric remote monitoring and management (RMM) solution. “Over the past four years we’ve built our international Barracuda MSP team to match our success and partner growth in these new regions, growing our MSP annualised recurring revenue base over 250% year on year,” said Brian Babineau, SVP & GM, Barracuda MSP. “As we continue to expand across the globe, we’re committed to investing in the infrastructure to support and empower these new partners.” According to an October 2018 report by Markets & Markets, the Managed Services Market is expected to grow from USD 180.5 billion in 2018 to USD 282.0 billion by 2023, fueled by growth of almost 10% per year. Barracuda’s MSP portfolio approach has been very successful in the global marketplace and is a key growth area. The division grew its global MSP partner base to over 4,300 and most importantly, the number of global MSPs using multiple Barracuda solutions increased 35 percent year-over-year entering September 2019. Demand for email protection solutions outside North America, in particular, has been considerable with annualised recurring revenue increasing by 318 percent year over year as of October 2019. With a dedicated team now serving Australia and New Zealand, Barracuda MSP now has cloud-based product operations and go to market operations running in UK, Germany and Australia. The expansion into Germany has been boosted by the recent signing of Infinigate, a strategic solutions provider for BarracudaMSP, to provide support to MSPs in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Building on Barracuda’s recent acquisition of Managed Workplace, this new team and partnership strengthens Barracuda’s entry into the DACH region. “Given the current climate, with economic uncertainty looming large in the form of political shifts across the region, it’s easy to see how MSPs might be playing it safe when it comes to growth,” added Jason Howells, Director, International MSP, Barracuda Networks. “It’s therefore a huge testament to our partnership model and the specialist team we’ve put in place that we’re seeing such impressive growth. We’re proud to be supporting MSPs across the region, and enabling them to create, deliver and demonstrate services to their clients.” About Barracuda At Barracuda we strive to make the world a safer place.

Barracuda launches Cloud Security Guardian integration with Amazon Detective 2019-12-04T21:00:00Z barracuda-launches-cloud-security-guardian-integration-with-amazon-detective-1 5 December 2019 – Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced a Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian integration with Amazon Detective, a security service from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that is designed to easily analyse, investigate and quickly identify the root cause of security findings or suspicious activities. Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian is an agentless software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution designed to provide visibility into the security posture of cloud workloads, facilitate compliance and automate remediation of security incidents. Amazon Detective is designed to automatically collect log data from customers’ AWS resources and uses machine learning, statistical analysis and graph theory to help users visualise and conduct faster and more efficient security investigations. With the Amazon Detective integration, Barracuda customers can get further insight into threats or violations that are exposed by Cloud Security Guardian. For example, if Cloud Security Guardian detects a policy violation in a specific region, the customer can drill down into Amazon Detective and investigate: Was there a breach due to the violation? If so, what was the extent of the breach? Was there lateral impact due to the violation? If so, what account or Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances were infected? Were there any API calls made by a role? From which IP address were their API calls originating? “Cloud Security Guardian is designed to alert customers to threats and vulnerabilities, allowing customers to fix the violation before there are further attacks,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP of Data Protection, Network and Application Security, Engineering and Product Management at Barracuda. “The integration with Amazon Detective makes it simple for customers to take their response a step further and understand the impact of the threat by learning more about the context of an attack, such as if there was a spike in inbound or outbound traffic flow after the attack or if there is additional intelligence available about the IP making the attack.” “Customers are looking for the tools and knowledge they need to strengthen their cloud security posture,” said Dan Plastina, Vice President, Security Services at Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We look forward to continuing to work with Barracuda on innovative solutions and integrations that can help customers keep up with evolving threats and vulnerabilities.” Resources: Get more information on Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian: https://www.barracuda.com/products/cloudsecurityguardian Scan your public cloud environment for threats and violations: https://csg.barracudanetworks.com/scan About Barracuda At Barracuda we strive to make the world a safer place.

Barracuda research uncovers techniques cybercriminals are using to make business email compromise attacks more convincing 2019-11-22T00:15:25Z barracuda-research-uncovers-techniques-cybercriminals-are-using-to-make-business-email-compromise-attacks-more-convincing Sydney, 22 November 2019 – Barracuda, a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today released a new report with key findings about business email compromise (BEC) attacks. The latest report, titled Spear Phishing: Top Threats and Trends Vol. 3 - Defending against business email compromise attacks, reveals new details about these highly targeted threats, including the latest tactics used by cybercriminals and the steps you can take to help defend your business. See the full report: www.barracuda.com/spear-phishing-report-3 The report takes a detailed look at how these crafty spear-phishing attacks use convincing impersonation, strategic targeting, careful timing, and social engineering to steal money or personally identifiable information. It also tackles how organisations can use advanced detection techniques, security awareness training, and other strategies and solutions to successfully prevent these costly and damaging attacks. Fresh insights on targeted attacks Barracuda’s research reveals insights into how these targeted attacks are impacting businesses and the approaches cybercriminals are using to try to make them more persuasive. 91 percent of BEC attacks take place on weekdays, with many being sent during typical business hours for the targeted organisation to make them more convincing. The average BEC attack targets no more than six employees, and 94.5 percent of all attacks target less than 25 people. 85 percent of BEC attacks are urgent requests designed to get a fast response. BEC attacks have high click-thru rates. One in 10 spear-phishing emails successfully tricks a user into clicking. That number triples for BEC attacks that impersonate someone within the organisation. In the past 12 months, the average amount lost per organisation due to spear-phishing attacks was $270,000. “Attackers continue to find new ways to make BEC attacks more convincing, ultimately making them more costly and damaging to businesses,” said Don MacLennan, SVP, Email Protection, Engineering and Product Management, Barracuda. “Taking the proper precautions and staying informed about the tactics cybercriminals are using will help organisations defend themselves more effectively against these highly targeted attacks.” Resources: Get the full report: www.barracuda.com/spear-phishing-report-3 Read the blog post: https://blog.barracuda.com/2019/11/21/report-defending-against-business-email-compromise-attacks/ Get the first two volumes: Get Spear Phishing: Top Threats and Trends, Vol. 1 - Best Practices to Defeat Evolving Attacks Get Spear Phishing: Top Threats and Trends, Vol. 2 - Email account takeover and defending against lateral phishing attacks About Barracuda At Barracuda, we strive to make the world a safer place.

Barracuda launches Cloud Application Protection to secure web apps 2019-11-05T22:00:00Z barracuda-launches-cloud-application-protection-to-secure-web-apps-1 Sydney, 6 November 2019 – Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced its new Cloud Application Protection (CAP) platform to address the escalating application security threats faced by today’s organisations. Barracuda CAP provides web application security, including a new WAF-as-a-Service solution that is built on Microsoft Azure and available in the Azure Marketplace. Digital transformation is driving changes in enterprises that are making web applications critical to their business. Applications in the cloud and on-premises need to be secured, yet only 10 percent are currently protected by web application firewalls.1 This is primarily due to the complexity and resources required to manage web application firewalls. As part of the Barracuda Cloud Application Protection (CAP) platform, the new WAF-as-a-Service is fully featured yet easy to deploy and manage. This brings application security to a broader market. In addition to WAF capabilities, the CAP platform also includes application vulnerability scanning and remediation, advanced bot protection, DDoS protection, and API security. Barracuda’s WAF-as-a-Service uses Azure to provide local availability and ease-of-deployment across all 54 Azure regions. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service retains the granular controls and customisation offered in Barracuda’s WAF — yet it can be deployed as a service from the Azure Marketplace within only a few clicks and, within minutes, protect an organisation’s web-facing applications. “Organisations need application security that’s both easy to manage and flexible enough to protect applications wherever they are deployed,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP of Data Protection, Network and Application Security, Engineering and Product Management, at Barracuda. “Barracuda Cloud Application Protection platform and WAF-as-a-Service hosted on the public cloud make that possible for a broader market.” At Microsoft’s Ignite conference in the US this week, Barracuda will also highlight its CloudGen Firewall with Microsoft Virtual WAN support. The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is the first security solution to support all Microsoft Virtual WAN features including recently accounced multi-link support, providing customers looking to migrate to Office 365 the option of leveraging an Azure backbone to mitigate latency for distributed or remote users. Ann Johnson, Corporate Vice President, Cybersecurity Solutions Group, Microsoft Corp. said: “Barracuda has experience in security, and they understand how to work with partners and customers in our ecosystem. We look forward to continuing to work with Barracuda to help organisations operate in the cloud securely.” Resources: Get more information on Barracuda Cloud Application Protection platform: URL TK Get more information about Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service: https://www.barracuda.com/waf-as-a-service Get more information about Barracuda CloudGen Firewall: https://www.barracuda.com/products/cloudgenfirewall Get more information about Barracuda Solutions for Microsoft Azure: https://www.barracuda.com/programs/azure Read the blog post: URL TK 1 Gartner, Defining Cloud Web Application and API Protection Services, Jeremy D'Hoinne, Adam Hils, Published: 26 February 2019 About Barracuda At Barracuda we strive to make the world a safer place.

Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response now generally available 2019-09-25T22:51:44Z barracuda-forensics-and-incident-response-now-generally-available-1 SYDNEY – 26th September 2019: Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced the general availability Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response. Previously available only to Barracuda Total Email Protection customers, the Forensics and Incident Response offering can now be layered with an organization’s existing gateway security solution, giving customers and service providers greater flexibility in email threat detection and response. Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response is an innovative solution allowing organizations to proactively respond to targeted attacks that were delivered to users’ inboxes. The solution automates a process that otherwise can take hours or even days to complete. According to the 2019 SANS Incident Response survey, manual remediation of security incidents takes more than six hours for 80 percent of organizations — with attacks spreading across the organization. The same process can be automated and completed in minutes with Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response. Based on Total Email Protection customer data, organizations saw a significant reduction in time spent on investigation and remediation of reported attacks after introducing Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response. Effective incident response also requires a change in approach. According to Gartner, “The email security market is starting to adopt a continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment (CARTA) mindset and acknowledge that perfect protection is not possible. As a result, vendors are evolving or emerging to support new detect and response capabilities by integrating directly with the email system via API.” 1 Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response provides remediation options to address issues quickly and efficiently. Geo-IP-based insights are crucial to determining geographical patterns in threats, allowing IT administrators to block future emails emanating from the originating region. IT administrators can send alerts to affected users and remove malicious mail directly from users’ inboxes with a couple of clicks. Discovery and threat insights provided by the Forensics platform helps to identify anomalies in delivered email, providing more proactive ways to detect email threats. “Modern threats are finding new ways to bypass email gateways, so businesses need to take new approaches to prevention, detection and response,” said Hatem Naguib, COO at Barracuda. “Malicious emails may end up in a user’s mailbox, and when they do, they need to be addressed quickly. Many organizations lack the information and tools security admins need to address these incidents, which results in a manual, inaccurate, time-consuming process.” “With Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response we have added visibility into what suspicious emails are circulating,” said Lisa Nicholson, Backup & SQL Database Specialist, The Salvation Army Western Territory. “We can easily investigate that issue and no longer have to spend a lot of time discovering which bad email went to which users. We can simply perform a search … and remediate the issue for several users with a few clicks – removing the email from their inbox.... This saves our team a lot of time which in turn saves our organization money.” Highlights: Automated incident response gives customers and service providers a faster, more efficient way to find, investigate, and remediate malicious emails delivered to users’ inboxes Administrators can send alerts to affected users, easily find users who clicked on links, forwarded or replied to malicious emails, and then remove the messages directly from their inboxes Standalone solution gives customers and service providers the flexibility to enhance an existing email security solution with an effective incident response tool According to customer data, organizations saw significant reduction in time spent on investigation and remediation of reported attacks after the introduction of Barracuda’s automated incident response Resources: Get more information about Barracuda Forensics and Incident Response: https://www.barracuda.com/forensics Get more information about Barracuda Total Email Protection: https://www.barracuda.com/totalemailprotection The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Email Security, Q2 2019 evaluation: https://www.barracuda.com/EmailWave/ Spear Phishing: Top Threats and Trends — Best Practices to Defeat Evolving Attacks: https://www.barracuda.com/spear-phishing-report Spear Phishing: Top Threats and Trends Vol. 2 — Email account takeover and defending against lateral phishing attacks: https://www.barracuda.com/spear-phishing-report-2 Find out what threats are hiding in your inbox with Barracuda Email Threat Scanner: https://www.barracuda.com/email_scan Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Best Email Security Software 2019: https://www.gartner.com/reviews/market/email-security/vendor/barracuda Read the blog post: Threat Spotlight: Inefficient incident response: http://cuda.co/38337 1 Gartner, Market Guide for Email Security, Neil Wynne, Peter Firstbrook, Published: 06 June 2019 About Barracuda At Barracuda we strive to make the world a safer place.
