Distinguished List Recognizes Intronis Among Top Disruptors and Innovators
Chelmsford, Mass. – April 20, 2016 – Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda, provider of backup and data protection solutions for managed service providers, has been named to After Nines Inc.’s ChannelE2E 100, which identifies and honors the top 100 entrepreneurs, startups, and exits from across the IT channel.
The ChannelE2E 100 celebrates businesses that achieved major milestones over the past year — including but not limited to company launches, seed or venture funding, mergers, acquisitions, financial milestones, and channel partner program developments. ChannelE2E 100 honorees include VARs (value-added resellers), MSPs (managed service providers), cloud service providers (CSPs), IT service providers (ITSPs), independent software vendors (ISVs), distributors, technology companies, and other members of the IT channel ecosystem.
In October 2015, Barracuda acquired Intronis. The business deal extended Barracuda’s reach into the fast-growing MSP market and continues to fuel the innovation needed to meet and anticipate the data protection and security demands of MSPs and their customers.
“We are proud to be recognized by ChannelE2E as one of the IT channel’s top disruptors and innovators,” said Rick Faulk, vice president and general manager, MSP Solutions, at Barracuda. “The acquisition expanded our ability to serve as the MSP community’s single-source provider of end-to-end protection for their critical data and business applications. We’re also able to leverage Barracuda’s international brand recognition and rich history in developing industry-leading solutions designed to solve mainstream IT problems, and we are strengthening our ability to help our channel partners meet the needs of their customers and ensure that no business fails due to data loss or an IT security breach.”
“After Nines Inc. congratulates Intronis MSP Solutions by Barracuda on the ChannelE2E 100 honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As an entrepreneur myself, I know firsthand how exciting and difficult launching a business is; reviewing potential investments; and ultimately selling your business.
