Benevolent- Barracuda Networks
"We know how important it is to have 100% uptime in corporate environments. We work hard to build reliable equipment that gives our systems a 99.99% uptime,â€ says Barracuda
It also understands that sometimes equipment can fail and therefore offers the Barracuda Instant Replacement Service. With the Instant Replacement Service, the firm provides next business day shipping of replacement hardware.
Along with providing priority replacements in case of equipment failure, the Instant Replacement subscription also provides ongoing migration to the latest hardware platforms through the Barracuda Hardware Refresh Program.
Normally, refresh units are purchased for a fee that represents a discount over the list price over a new hardware unit. However, Â Barracuda Networks will waive this fee if your old hardware unit is more than 4 years old and covered under an Instant Replacement subscription. This means that by maintaining an Instant Replacement subscription with your Barracuda appliance, you can continue receiving a new hardware unit every 4 years at absolutely no additional cost.
With this, the Instant Replacement program provides a single, convenient subscription that covers you in case of hardware failure and provides an affordable way to migrate to the most current hardware platform on an ongoing basis.
Barracuda Energize Updates provide your Barracuda Networks product with protection from the latest Internet threats. The team at Barracuda Central continuously monitors the Internet for new trends in network security threats and develops strategies to mitigate those threats.
Energize Updates deliver the latest definitions most appropriate to your product - spam, virus, content categories, spyware filter, intrusion prevention, IM protocols, policies, security updates, attacks and document formats.
These updates are sent out hourly or more frequently if needed, to ensure that you always have the latest and most comprehensive protection.
Barracuda Energize Updates subscriptions must be purchased with any Barracuda Networks appliance to provide complete protection from the latest internet threats. Subscriptions can be purchased for 1, 3 or 5 year terms.
Energize Update subscriptions will be provided for up to 5 years for a particular hardware platform. Hardware can be easily refreshed at any time through the "Barracuda Hardware Refresh Program". Any unused portion of Energize Updates subscription will automatically be transferred to the new hardware platform.
