CMIT Solutions of the Northeast Valley has been serving the Scottsdale, Arizona community for over 13 years as Scottsdale’s premier managed IT services provider. Bruce Newman, the MSP’s President, and his team bring decades of knowledge and experience to small and medium-sized businesses, offering 24×7 managed services, coupled with best-in-class security and data protection services. CMIT Solutions of the Northeast Valley was looking to replace its offering with solutions that would improve MSP efficiency and allow them to better secure and serve their clients.
Firewall and email security solutions improve MSP efficiency
As cyberattacks continue to threaten businesses of all sizes, it remains important for Bruce to partner with a vendor that offers easy-to-use, best-in-class cybersecurity. Bruce states, “We liked the monthly billing model that Barracuda MSP offered. The central management console for Barracuda CloudGen Firewall has made it easy for us to configure and deploy firewalls to our customers, as well as manage changes globally across all their clients, something we couldn’t achieve with the solutions we used in the past.”
Since then, Bruce’s team has also adopted Barracuda Essentials for its customers’ email security. “With the many medical offices we support, we needed a solution that offers email encryption, archiving, and cloud backup, while protecting the gateway. Barracuda Essentials not only supports every aspect of their requirement, but its central management makes it easy for my team to gain efficiency.”
Barracuda Essentials not only offers email encryption, archiving, and cloud backup, while protecting the gateway, but its central management makes it easy for #MSPs to improve efficiency. #PartnerSpotlight
Barracuda’s solutions help MSP build a well-rounded offering
As a veteran MSP, Bruce has found that including both Barracuda CloudGen Firewall and Barracuda Essentials as part of their managed service offerings just makes sense. With more businesses moving to Microsoft Office 365, they now need a new data protection solution that can backup their data that is sitting in the cloud. This is where Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup comes in.
The higher the SharePoint and OneDrive usage, the easier it is to position the Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup solution. Similarly, all of their medical clients, insurance companies, and law offices require email encryption. “Lead with managed services, because bundling these solutions together adds the value a client is looking for,” advises Newman.
