MSC (Multimedia Supercorridor) Malaysia status ICT distributor ECS ICT Berhad (ECSB) has partnered with security and storage provider Barracuda Networks to enhance its end-to-end security solutions portfolio.

"As more and more businesses embrace the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) culture and focus on the protection of web server or website,  it is essential for us to partner with a company that can provide the versatility and security solutions for the business users," said ECSB managing director Foo Sen Chin.

"Our new partnership with Barracuda is set to strengthen our security portfolio in Malaysia as well as to provide our resellers with a comprehensive range of security solutions to meet their customers' diverse business needs," said Foo.

"Over the years, we have distributed hundreds of infrastructure and solutions for both the private and government sectors and we believe our partnership with Barracuda further solidifies our position as one of the most prominent ICT distribution hubs in Malaysia," he said.

Foo said ECSB will be distributing the full range of Barracuda's suite of security and storage solutions such as WAF,  Load Balancer, Message Archiver, web filters, Spam and Virus Firewall  for customers in Malaysia.

 Security gaps

"In a recent survey we conducted, 55 percent of companies surveyed conveyed that they had a security gap due to a misconfigured firewall rule, and one in four of those security gaps went unnoticed for more than a week," said Barracuda Networks Southeast Asia director, Benny Lim.

"This is a serious issue and underpins the importance of providing purpose-built solutions that are easy to install and manage," said Lim.

"ECSB has a strong presence in Malaysia, with an extensive reach into the SME and large enterprise markets," he added. "Most importantly they share our vision to provide powerful yet easy-to-use security and storage solutions for organisations of all sizes, and we are excited to be partnering with them on these efforts."
