Barracuda snaps up Fyde for its Zero Trust capabilities

Barracuda has acquired Fyde to give its CloudGen SASE platform  Zero Trust Network Access 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.

Fyde’s  Zero Trust solution claims to enable secure, reliable, and fast access to cloud or on-premises applications and workloads from any device and location. Fyde’s ZTNA 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 is ideal to connect users directly to cloud-native and legacy corporate applications deployed in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

President and CEO at Barracuda, BJ Jenkins, said: “Remote work is here to stay, cloud migrations are accelerating, and traditional corporate perimeters have disappeared,” said  “Fyde offers a powerful ZTNA solution that works on any infrastructure, any device, and with any application on a corporate network. With this acquisition, Barracuda is providing distributed businesses with a new way to modernise remote access, enforce global security and access policies, and achieve seamless connectivity without compromising productivity.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
