Secure the remote workforce.
Many of your customers are faced with a new reality: a workforce that is predominantly working from home. These workers still need access to applications and files that reside in their company’s network, and they need an MSP’s help. The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall (CGF) can ensure that your customers can safely and securely access the corporate resources they need. Barracuda MSP offers multiple remote access options to provide the best user experience depending on the user’s device.
Barracuda MSP’s CloudGen Firewall remote access applications are easy to deploy to your customers and introduce into a workflow.
Protect SMBs from risks created by distracted employees.
Your customers’ employees who are new to working remotely are met with a variety of distractions. This creates a perfect storm for email scammers to attack.
Several new COVID-19 scams that involve ransomware, phishing, and other types of attacks have emerged. These attacks rely on the victim believing that the email is a legitimate status update from their employer or from world health care leaders, and can be devastating if successful. Our robust email security portfolio provides the technology your customers need to protect, detect, and recover from malicious emails.
Protect data as new risks arise from remote work.
Shifting the workforce out of the corporate office comes with change and risk in how your SMB customers save their data. It is important to work with your customers to ensure that despite these changes, data will be secure. For example, saving to a network drive on a file server now means connecting via VPN or leveraging platforms like Microsoft OneDrive for Business.
If your customers are using Office 365, you should be following Microsoft best practices by backing up with Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup. This enables you to ensure data is protected according to each customers’ corporate policy. Visit our blog for more information on how to protect the data in your Office 365 environment, including data in SharePoint Online, Teams, Groups, and more.
Detect and prevent vulnerabilities in customer networks.
With remote work becoming the new normal, MSPs should ensure that their customers’ environment is as secure as possible. This means securing data, VPN connections, and making sure networks are running on the latest patches and updates. MSPs can enhance their security service offering and improve their customers’ security posture with Managed Workplace, which includes a powerful built-in security assessment tool and enables MSPs to quickly identify and address vulnerabilities in customers’ networks, deliver multi-layered security, monitor anomalies, and seamlessly recover data in the event of an attack.
Protect remote users from malicious sites.
Posing as World Health Organization (WHO) personnel, cybercriminals are now attempting to scam individuals and companies, stealing information and money by directing them to sites outside of www.who.int. To protect SMBs from malicious sites, inappropriate content, and file-based threats, MSPs can use Barracuda Content Shield, a cloud managed and provisioned web security solution with robust content filtering. MSPs can deploy and configure Barracuda Content Shield in less than 15 minutes with its LDAP and Azure AD integration.
Protect applications during spikes in traffic.
As COVID-19 spreads around the world, more governments are enforcing partial and full lock-downs. As a result, much of the consumer buying has quickly shifted from in person to online. To help your clients retain customers and continue business, they need to quickly ramp up ecommerce applications. Similar disruptions are happening to government agencies and other organizations.
Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service is very easy to deploy and manage, and it can help you protect ecommerce and other applications from hackers and bot attacks. It provides powerful application security features including advanced bot and DDoS protection.
