Cloud-enabled security solutions provider Barracuda has announced that it has acquired Fyde, a Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) provider based in Palo Alto, California, and Porto, Portugal to expand the Barracuda CloudGen SASE platform with ZTNA capabilities. The Fyde solution is available immediately as Barracuda CloudGen Access to businesses of all sizes. It will be available in the coming weeks for Managed Service Providers. The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
The company claims that Fyde’s Zero Trust solution enables secure, reliable, and fast access to cloud or on-premises applications and workloads from any device and location. It also claims that the solution addresses the security risks associated with traditional remote access by continuously verifying that only the right person, with the right device, and the right permissions can access company resources. The solution can be used to connect users directly to cloud-native and legacy corporate applications deployed in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
BJ Jenkins, President and CEO at Barracuda, said: “Remote work is here to stay, cloud migrations are accelerating, and traditional corporate perimeters have disappeared. With this acquisition, Barracuda is providing distributed businesses a new way to modernize remote access, enforce global security and access policies, and achieve seamless connectivity without compromising productivity.”
