Barracuda Networks acquires Intronis, eyes the SMB market

Security, networking and storage vendor Barracuda Networks has announced it is acquiring Intronis Inc., an online backup and disaster recovery solutions provider.

With this move, Barracuda is looking to extend its reach into the SMB space, the company said, with the addition of some 2,000 MSPs that currently partner with Intronis, of which there is “less than 10 per cent overlap.”

Meanwhile, for Chelmsford, Massachusetts-based Intronis, the acquisition will allow it to reach an international market.

“We’ve invested heavily in developing and maintaining strong relationships with our MSP channel, which is reinforced by our platform designed to simplify how our partners manage their offerings,” said Rick Faulk, CEO of Intronis. “We are looking forward to working with the Barracuda team as part of the dedicated MSP business to further drive Intronis to the next phase of our growth as we begin to expand our MSP footprint internationally.”
