Barracuda integrates eSignature into its Cloud Storage

Work flow automation, e-signature and more features integrated into Barracuda’s 
secure cloud service – Copy for businesses, to simplify the way we work

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 27 February, 2014 – Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced the integration of work flow automation, eSignature and more to its secure cloud service Copy for business to enable organisations to simplify the way they collaborate and work, from anywhere or with any device.

“Today’s announcement is all about improving the customer experience, and we are excited about reaching this new milestone with Copy. This new release of Copy makes it cleaner, better and easier to store, access, sign and share files – from anywhere,” said Thiban Darmalingam, the Regional Manager for Barracuda in Malaysia.

“Our customers have asked for a more secure and easier to use solution, and with these new integrations set, Barracuda together with SignNow and our partners, Mover, Redbooth and Kloudless; are putting security and convenience right in the hands of our customers.”

“For example, administrators can now set restrictions on its user’s ability to access or share files using policy-based control options that are now available on Copy,” explains Thiban.

“On the other hand, Copy’s integration with Barracuda’s SignNow, allows users to electronically sign and share documents easily via cloud. This helps employees better manage their document workflow and reduces inefficiency and operating costs for businesses,” adds Thiban.

Strategic partnerships
Recognising the need for easier migration process, last year Barracuda partnered with Mover; the online data migration expert that allows users to easily and cost effectively migrate from other cloud storage providers such as Dropbox, Box and SugarSync. Mover’s hosted platform offers swift, simple and secure solutions for data migration and backups, with no downloads or installations.

“Copy has been enhanced to satisfy both the individuals and businesses cloud needs by providing a more strong and user-friendly option. With copy, users and administrators are now able to gain full control of safely accessing, signing and sharing critical business data over cloud,” ends Thiban.
