London, UK.: Barracuda Networks Inc., a leading provider of security and data protection solutions, has announced it has been recognised as a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Web Security Products 2011-2012 Vendor Analysis (doc #236980, October 2012). This report analyses the quantitative and qualitative characteristics that explain a vendor's success in the marketplace. The Barracuda Web security solutions – including the Barracuda Web Filter, Barracuda Web Security Service, Barracuda Web Security Agent and Barracuda Safe Browser – were recognised for their flexible yet comprehensive ability to protect users online, regardless of location or device.

According to IDC, market demands for Web security solutions have changed and must address a much broader set of functions. The report goes on to explain, “Explosive growth of Web-based technologies in the enterprise (i.e., social media, mobile apps, software-as-a-service/cloud infrastructure) and the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) phenomenon are forcing rapid change on the Web security market.”

“Web security requirements continue to evolve," said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management at Barracuda Networks. “While the current challenges we’re addressing are around the expanding corporate perimeter, mobility and the changes in Web 2.0, our basic philosophy is that we should solve our customers’ Web security issues, including new ones, without additional options or fees. It’s how we do business, and we appreciate IDC’s recognition as a leader for it.
