Cloud-Based Mobile Device and Application Management Service Helps Easily Manage iOS Devices

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced the launch of the new Barracuda Mobile Device Manager (MDM), a free cloud-based mobile device and application management service. The Barracuda MDM enables K-12 educational institutions to easily manage 1:1 mobility initiatives by centrally administering and monitoring iOS mobile phones and tablets.

"At Barracuda, we have a 10-year history of working with customers to better understand their network requirements and have evolved our product suite to provide end-to-end protection across multiple threat vectors," said Stephen Pao, GM Security, Barracuda. "We believe mobile device management is an integral part of this broader security solution, particularly for educational institutions looking to leverage mobile technology in the classroom.

"The Barracuda MDM integrates seamlessly with a number of Barracuda solutions and is accessed in the Barracuda Cloud Control, which provides a single-pane of glass for customers to manage their security infrastructure," Pao continued. "Overall, mobile is a natural progression, providing a simple, easy-to-use and affordable way for customers to extend their content and network security policies right down to their mobile users."

The Barracuda MDM simplifies management of iOS devices from a centralized console integrated into the Barracuda Cloud Control portal. Using the service, administrators easily can:

--  Set device security policies including revoke access and device restrictions such as passcode policies and global proxy settings
--  Deploy and manage applications including other Barracuda mobile applications such as Safe Browser, Copy and SignNow to enforce browsing policies, improve workflow between teachers and students, and manage the document signing process for parents
--  Remotely manage and monitor mobile devices in a consolidated view via an intuitive, easy-to-use dashboard

Pricing and Availability

Barracuda Mobile Device Manager is provided at no cost for existing Barracuda customers and can be accessed through the Barracuda Cloud Control portal. Once a service account is provisioned, mobile devices easily can be enrolled with the service from any location. Administrators can send users an email invitation with enrollment information through the service. Optionally users can download the Barracuda Mobile Device Companion app from the iTunes App Store. The service also supports zero-touch enrollment and inventory management through the Apple DEP program.
