Expands Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform by adding Zero Trust capabilities
Barracuda has acquired Fyde to expand the Barracuda CloudGen SASE platform with ZTNA capabilities. The Fyde solution is available immediately as Barracuda CloudGen Access to businesses of all sizes. It will be available in the coming weeks for Managed Service Providers.
Fyde’s innovative Zero Trust solution enables secure, reliable, and fast access to cloud or on-premises applications and workloads from any device and location. Fyde’s ZTNA solution addresses the security risks associated with traditional remote access by continuously verifying that only the right person, with the right device, and the right permissions can access company resources. The solution is ideal to connect users directly to cloud-native and legacy corporate applications deployed in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
“Remote work is here to stay, cloud migrations are accelerating, and traditional corporate perimeters have disappeared,” said BJ Jenkins, President and CEO at Barracuda. “Fyde offers a powerful ZTNA solution that works on any infrastructure, any device, and with any application on a corporate network. With this acquisition, Barracuda is providing distributed businesses a new way to modernize remote access, enforce global security and access policies, and achieve seamless connectivity without compromising productivity.”
With this acquisition, Barracuda expands its differentiated capabilities for today’s complex IT environments, enabling security teams to address many use cases, including:
- Secure single sign-on to SaaS applications
- Secure access to applications from BYOD devices
- Simultaneous access to applications located on-premises and on multiple clouds
- Mobile device security monitoring and protection against malicious websites
- Simplified privileged access and much more
