Barracuda Expands Global Data Protection Reach

Barracuda Networks Inc., a provider of cloud-first security solutions, announced three new regional Cloud-to-Cloud Backup data centers in France, India and the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), to meet the growing demand for data protection services in these regions and better serve local customers.

This makes a total of 10 regions for the solution, and customers’ Office 365 backup data will be stored locally within each region, a key requirement for customers operating in regulated industries or in countries with data protection laws.

In a study conducted by Barracuda, organizations disclosed data protection is a security and regulatory concern for them. A full 69 percent of respondents said they are concerned about storage of the data being backed up outside their geography (geo residency), and more than 7 in 10 respondents are concerned about compliance with data privacy requirements.

Barracuda’s latest version of Cloud-to-Cloud Backup delivers a fast search and restore experience for Office 365 data, including Teams, Exchange Online, SharePoint, and OneDrive. Compared to traditional backup and recovery solutions, it is a cloud-first solution that provides scale and resiliency, fast performance, and wide global coverage to protect Office 365 data born in the cloud.
