ECSB strengthens security portfolio with Barracuda pact
By Digital News Asia September 27, 2013
- ECSB subsidiary to distribute full range of Barracuda’s security and storage solutions in Malaysia
- Vision to provide easy-to-use security and storage solutions for organisations of all sizes
ECS ICT Berhad (ECSB) said that its wholly-owned subsidiary ECS Pericomp Sdn Bhd has been appointed the authorised distributor in Malaysia for security and storage solutions provider Barracuda Networks Inc.
The company will be distributing the full range of Barracuda’s security and storage solutions such as WAF (Web Application Firewall), Load Balancer, Message Archiver, web filters, as well as spam and virus firewall solutions.
“Our new partnership with Barracuda is set to strengthen our security portfolio in Malaysia as well as provide our resellers with a comprehensive range of security solutions to meet their customers’ diverse business needs,” said ECSB managing director Foo Sen Chin.
“As more businesses embrace the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) culture and focus on the protection of web servers and websites, it is essential for us to partner with a company that can provide the versatility and security solutions [that business users need],” he added.
According to Benny Lim, South-East Asia director for Barracuda Networks, in a recent survey the company conducted, 55% of companies surveyed said that they had a security gap due to a misconfigured firewall rule, and one in four of those security gaps went unnoticed for more than a week.
“This is a serious issue and underpins the importance of providing purpose-built solutions that are easy to install and manage," he said.
“ECSB has a strong presence in Malaysia, with an extensive reach into the SME (small and medium enterprise) and large enterprise markets. Most importantly, they share our vision to provide powerful yet easy-to-use security and storage solutions for organisations of all sizes, and we are excited to be partnering with them on these efforts,” Lim added.
