Nuvias adds Barracuda Networks to growing Cyber Security portfolio in France
London and Paris: 26/7/17: Nuvias has been appointed as a value-added distributor (VAD) in France by Barracuda Networks, a leading provider of cloud-enabled security and data protection solutions. Nuvias (now incorporating advanced networking VAD Zycko) will be working with Barracuda to increase awareness of Barracuda products in France and to extend Barracuda’s reseller network.
This new agreement broadens the current relationship between Barracuda and Nuvias in the UK, Germany and Italy. For Nuvias in France, the arrival of Barracuda further strengthens its growing portfolio of security and advanced networking products which includes Arbor Networks, Malwarebytes and Riverbed.
Patric Berger, Regional Vice-President for Southern Europe at Nuvias, commented: “Barracuda offers a single, reliable source for security, storage and application delivery solutions. The company has a unique, distributed NextGen firewall technology, alongside a complete backup portfolio that addresses the needs of both the appliance and cloud market in France today. Additionally, Barracuda provides archiving, security and recovery features around email technology, which are not currently offered by Microsoft.”
Eric Heddeland, Regional Sales Director, EMEA Southern Region for Barracuda, commented: “With Nuvias, we are aiming for a very significant increase in the visibility of Barracuda products in the French market, as we look to rapidly expand our channel in France over the next year. We already have a solid experience of working together with Nuvias in the UK and Germany, so we are confident that the Nuvias team has the ability, organisation and support to help us increase product visibility in France. Barracuda is an international company and Nuvias, as a global distributor, is able to help us implement global partner programmes consistently across the various countries where we operate, including France.”
Nuvias already works with over 400 channel partners across France and will grow that number during 2017, as well as doubling the size of its French team, adding more specialist IT security product managers, as well as pre-sales and technical support staff. A new partner portal will also be launched by Nuvias, to accelerate growth for Barracuda, alongside a strong marketing and lead generation campaign.
