Vector Security Networks, a provider of managed IT services across North America, announced a strategic relationship with Barracuda Networks Inc., a provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, to better secure clients and grow their cyber-as-a-service practice, powered by Barracuda’s SKOUT Managed XDR.

Vector Security Networks has been delivering managed network services for over 17 years and helps businesses streamline, support or augment their IT resources to be successful. This new relationship allows for an expansion of cloud-native threat detection tools that utilize AI and machine learning.

“Many companies are turning to us to provide holistic security and managed services across their businesses — regardless of size,” said David Fisher, division president of Vector Security Networks. “Working with Barracuda, and taking advantage of their Managed XDR offering, will allow us to expand our traditional managed services and physical security solution sets with a cybersecurity offering that is proven and trusted.”

The solution is primarily focused on two areas of cybersecurity: ransomware and compliance.

“We’ve been focused on protecting small and medium sized businesses since day one. Every company should be able to get protected from cybercrime,” said Aidan Kehoe, SVP, MSP Managed XDR at Barracuda. “We are looking forward to partnering with Vector Security Networks to protect more businesses and workers from cybercrime.”

Vector Security Networks says the expanded services are a key component of their offerings moving forward and allows for more focus on customer experience with a consolidated managed IT and cybersecurity practice. For more information on the cybersecurity offering from Vector Security Networks visit
