Barracuda has introduced a flexible and secure cloud file service for businesses, CudaDrive.
CudaDrive is delivered on desktops via local virtual drive as well as via mobile and web applications and enables businesses to store, share and access files stored in the Barracuda cloud from anywhere.
The company said CudaDrive also includes user data protection for endpoints and can add an appliance for an easy transition from existing corporate file shares.
Additionally, CudaDrive helps to preserve valuable storage space and its pricing is simple with plans available by storage capacity with unlimited users rather than charging by seat or by user.
Company officials said CudaDrive delivers cloud file services via a unique desktop virtual drive interface.
In addition employees can access company data instantly and securely from any device.
User data protection protects documents, desktop, and downloads folders on endpoints, including individual computers and mobile devices, with the ability to add other locations with one click.
While desktop virtual drive caches data, minimizes local storage requirements and maintains access to files without the need to sync.
Also, CudaDrive encrypts all data in transit to using 256-bit AES encryption with enhanced security.
CudaDrive Site Server provides faster, direct access to files via a local cache while improving speed while on a company’s LAN and enables file server consolidation by sharing files stored in the cloud via network drive shares.
CudaDrive is available for $39.99 per month for 100GBs.
“We’ve helped many companies back up and protect server data with Barracuda Backup, and now with CudaDrive, we’re able to protect end-user data and provide easy sharing,” says Rod Mathews, GM Storage, Barracuda.
In June, Barracuda launched Software-as-a-service SaaS Cloud-to-Cloud Backup to provide customers with the ability to replicate data from supported cloud environments into Barracuda’s Cloud Storage.
