The addition of Barracuda will help Redington to strengthen its security portfolio, says Ramkumar.

Barracuda Networks has signed Redington Value as a distribution partner for the region.

Redington will carry the entire line of Barracuda's security and networking solutions, including the Barracuda NG Firewall solution.

The deal will complement Barracuda's existing distribution partnerships in the region, and will aim to extend the vendor's reach into regional markets.

Barracuda said it selected Redington Value, the value-added distribution arm of Redington Distribution, because of its expertise in security and its reach into both large, established markets and smaller, emerging territories.

Paul Lawrence, regional sales director for the UK, Nordics, Middle East and Africa at Barracuda, said: "Our channel strategy is to focus extremely closely on where the best opportunities for growth lie. Organisations across the Middle East are experiencing exceptional demand for improving and overhauling their IT security and data protection systems. Redington will help accelerate our ability to put our solutions into the hands of these organisations regardless of where they're located.

"Barracuda Networks is actively hiring additional sales and technical staff to drive activities in the region. This will allow us to enhance even further the high level of support that our partners and customers have come to expect from us," he added.

Ramkumar B, vice-president, Value Business at Redington said: "With its comprehensive product portfolio and highly respected management team, Barracuda Networks has the potential to become one of the most dominant IT security and data protection brands in the Middle East.  Having seen the investment and commitment made by Barracuda Networks in the region, we expect the company to contribute significantly in strengthening our security offering for resellers in the region."
