"The AWS Security Competency offers further validation that Barracuda's Cloud Generation Firewalls provide customers with additional application security controls," said Tim Jefferson, VP Public Cloud, Barracuda. "In addition to the Competency, we're continuing to expand our cloud generation capabilities with services like a true usage-based billing option, which helps customers align their infrastructure security plan with cloud consumption models. This is just one example, but it's all about enabling customers to move fast while remaining secure."

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify APN Consulting and Technology Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
