Awingu and Barracuda Networks to Deliver a Unified Workspace for the Hybrid Cloud

Awingu, the unified, browser-based workspace, today announced a technology relationship with Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security and data protection solutions. The new synergy brings together Barracuda's high performance security and zero-touch configuration with Awingu's turnkey, browser-based workspace solution, facilitating the deployment of Awingu in hybrid cloud environments.

Barracuda NextGen Firewalls are purpose-built for securing cloud-connected networks. They protect users, applications, and data and ensure secure and reliable connections among multiple sites on premises and the cloud with consumption-based pricing, saving you money on infrastructure costs. Awingu brings the ease and convenience of platform agnostic mobility to deliver everything the enterprise needs in a workspace - legacy and cloud apps, documents, and data - to any device. This entails providing secure access to applications and files without the need to manage or expose vulnerable end-points. Applications and data can be hosted on Microsoft Azure or on-premise, and then securely connected to Awingu's browser-based workspace.

"We are thrilled to be working with Barracuda and to offer service providers a simpler solution to step up their value chain," states Walter Van Uytven, CEO of Awingu. "For organizations, it's a no brainer with no local data residing on the end-users device and little changes to the IT infrastructure. Our technology relationship offers the perfect synergy of security and simplicity for service providers and their customers."

"The combination of Awingu and Barracuda's Next Gen Firewall is a unique opportunity for businesses to smoothly move into the Microsoft Azure cloud," states Chris Dial, Director of Cloud ISVs, Microsoft.

"Our firewalls are engineered to be tightly integrated into the public cloud providers' management fabric. This all comes from having a deep understanding of the unique technical and commercial requirements that security and development teams need in order to migrate security controls into their applications in a way that's consistent with the cloud providers' development best practices. When an organisation migrates its' applications to the public cloud, traditional on-premises firewall functionality often doesn't translate well to public cloud environments. Our Cloud Generation Firewalls are designed to provide support for public cloud deployment best practices, support public cloud specific use cases and facilitate you with a commercial model designed for public cloud consumption." states Tim Jefferson, VP Public Cloud at Barracuda, "This combination with Awingu's simple platform agnostic workspaces, provides SMB's a secure and seamless way to migrate to the cloud."

"Synergics' Mobility365 offering combines Awingu's unified workplace and Barracuda NextGen firewall in the Microsoft Azure Cloud. This leverages the full potential of a cost-efficient and full-service online workplace. It brings what businesses of today expect: transparent pricing, best-in-class TCO, full mobility, full flexibility and optimized security," states Jochen Maertens, Founder and CEO of Synergics. "With Awingu, Barracuda and Microsoft Azure it's easy to setup a hybrid cloud scenario for businesses that also want to move their legacy apps to the Cloud. They are filling a need for workspaces with zero touch implementations, high-performance security and multitenancy architecture."
