Date:   Monday , July 01, 2013

South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC) found themselves in need of an email archiving solution to be used as an effective tool for staff requesting preparation of legal discovery- a means of searching for and retrieving emails or files for use of evidence. Their main priorities were to minimize costs of manual labor in the legal discovery sector and increase proficiency. They compared several options due to strict budget constraints and found themselves to be in the middle of nowhere. The process of researching other message archiving solutions left the company frustrated and confused. SCDC met Barracuda Networks, a Computer and Networking Security Company who had successfully resolved several such cases for over 150,000 customers. And since then, they are happily residing in the arms of Barracuda Networks.

Where with other data storage devices, the users have to juggle with the IT guys to retrieve his data, Barracuda Networks’ solution provides extreme ability to the end user to backup and retrieve the data themselves. The company’s data stored are always encrypted in 256 bits encryption which is the highest form of encryption one can have. The only way to read the data stored is to club it into the archive it came from or the administrator who has access to the box. Barracuda Network provides anytime-anywhere availability of data on a real-time basis by reducing the stress the IT guy may have brought having to retrieve data for end users using current solutions, as the company lets the end user be the ‘King’ of their own data.

The country holds huge opportunity and products are priced at the right price-point and Barracuda Networks is gearing up to tap these opportunities.
