Barracuda Networks Opens New Office in Cupertino; Barracuda Sets Up Headquarters in 14,000 Square Foot Building

CUPERTINO, Calif.--()--Jan. 13, 2004--Barracuda Networks, a provider of enterprise-class anti-spam firewall solutions, today announced it has relocated to an enhanced office space in Cupertino, Calif. Previously located in Los Altos, Calif., the new Barracuda Networks headquarters is located at 10040 Bubb Road, Cupertino, CA 95014.

"This move not only provides additional space for our sales and engineering teams, it also provides an environment that is more conducive to meeting with current customers as well as future business prospects," said Dean Drako, president and CEO of Barracuda Networks. "Barracuda is committed to providing strong anti-spam hardware solutions for enterprises and large businesses and looks forward to continuing business from this new location."

Since its launch in December 2002, Barracuda Networks has experienced exponential growth to its customer base and is continuing to add personnel to accommodate this increase. In October 2003, Barracuda Networks released the Barracuda Spam Firewall Family, which supports from 1,000 to 25,000 active users with no per user licensing fees. Its architecture leverages open source virus and spam solutions and minimizes the processing of each email, which yields the performance required to process millions of messages per day. Unlike software solutions, the Barracuda Spam Firewall reduces the load placed on the email server by off-loading both spam and virus filtering. Barracuda Networks also offers the Energize Update subscription service to automatically update the Barracuda Spam Firewall with the latest spam rules and virus definitions.

Barracuda Networks will continue to provide sales, manufacturing, marketing and technical support from the new location.
