Partner of the Year Always First to Take On New Challenges


Barracuda’s Jason Beal

“For nearly a decade, IntraSystems has been a perennial contender for partner of the year,” said Jason Beal, Barracuda’s vice president of worldwide partner ecosystems. “Always first to raise their hand and take on any new challenge, they find themselves true experts in their field and deliver daily success to their clients. It’s not a surprise that even coming off an already record year, they had over 100% year-over-year growth of their Barracuda business. We look forward to the next decade of partnership.”

NexusTek began its journey with Barracuda MSP in 2017, said Karen Ward, Barracuda’s vice president of MSP sales for the Americas.

“Since then, they have exemplified the changes that have occurred in the IT and cybersecurity space,” she said. “With the alignment of our flexible billing and delivery options, NexusTek has been able to integrate our services into every MSP plan that a customer signs up for.”

Over the last four years, Datalink Networks has established itself as one of the top Barracuda premier partners in the Southwest region, Beal said.

“Their commitment to working with Barracuda in bringing the best security solutions to a broad market truly exemplifies the meaning of partnership,” he said. “They consistently promote our joint value proposition across diverse business verticals, driving customer engagement via social media, virtual and in-person events. They are the first partner to engage us on new products and services, understand the value of enabling their sales and technical teams consistently and provide critical insight into Barracuda’s go-to-marketing strategy with our leadership team.”
