Removing Barriers to Your Cloud Migration

Migrating to the cloud can be a complex process. While the cloud can simplify your IT and make it easier to scale your business, moving sensitive business data to the cloud carries new security risks. In addition, you still need to secure your on-premises infrastructure.

Barracuda's new "Cloud Ready" initiative is intended to eliminate obstacles and help you move to the cloud faster, more cost-effectively, and with greater confidence.

This initiative lets you secure your on-premises deployments, and automatically extend the same protection to your cloud deployments as you roll them out.
