Cloud security and data protection firm Barracuda Networks is aiming to improve its cloud archiving, analytics, and management capabilities with the acquisition of Sonian, the company announced today.
Sonian is a provider of cloud archiving and business insights, and its technology aims to help customers store, access, and leverage data in email messages and attachments. Once they have insight into their data, users can apply it to their business and pinpoint potential threats before they turn into bigger problems.
Barracuda intends to add Sonian's analytics and AI to its security platform. In doing so, it plans to improve on the security and data protection it currently offers customers in Office 365 and cloud environments. Sonian will also bring its customer base of 32,000 users, as well as partnerships with large managed service providers and software companies.
