US-based networking and security provider Barracuda Networks is to build up its end-to-end security solutions for Malaysian companies.

Speaking on 3 July 2012, Barracuda Networks regional director of Asia Rick Tam said the company intends to 'deliver a comprehensive framework of integrated solutions to the Malaysian market, which has been identified as the company's key Asia Pacific market.'

The company, which was founded in 2003 in California, set up its Malaysia operations in 2004, with solutions around content security, networking and application delivery, as well as data storage, protection and recovery, said Tam.

"Many enterprises are not prepared for many of the network security challenges today," he said. "Cyber criminals are launching sophisticated attacks and stealing data. With more enterprises adopting bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies for remote work arrangement, mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have become gateways for phishing and spams."

"We take pride in that we are a global technology leader with a local presence," said Tam. "We are well positioned to help local businesses secure their users, applications and data in today's dynamic IT environment. With our team of certified support engineers and channels, we are ready to expand our reach and provide the ROIs [returns of investment] that CIOs are looking for."

He said the current solutions portfolios, including purpose-built solutions for organisations of all sizes, are delivered through channels. "Barracuda Networks has recruited a strong network of local channel partners over the past eight years including Kabaz, Mesiniaga and Packet Systems Malaysia. The channels and the local sales team cover verticals including education, telecommunications, FSI [financial services industry], government and manufacturing sectors delivering best-in-class solutions, training and support."
