Barracuda Networks Inc., provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Skout Cybersecurity, a Melville, NY-based leader in cyber-as-a-service software for managed service providers and provider of an extended detection and response platform and service.
The Skout deal follows the recent acquisition of zero trust access provider Fyde.
“MSPs must be able to protect their customers’ end users, their devices, and the data they are accessing with these devices against increasingly sophisticated threats. To achieve this level of protection for their customers, and themselves, MSPs are transforming their businesses into “security centric” operations,” said Brian Babineau, senior vice president and general manager, Barracuda MSP. “The addition of SKOUT enables Barracuda’s MSP partners to deploy security solutions across their environments, connecting their data feeds into a unified, 24×7 operation for swift analysis and response.”
