"The Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall and Barracuda Email Security Service combine that ease with affordable pricing and full-featured functionality around spam and virus blocking, email continuity, and encryption, and we appreciate the recognition by the ChannelPro community with these awards."
Readers of ChannelPro-SMB were invited to participate in the channel's only SMB-focused Readers' Choice Awards by casting their votes for the most SMB- and partner-friendly products, technologies, services, programs, and professional organizations in the channel today, via the publication's website.

"It was gratifying to see such a high level of participation in the survey on the part of our readers, which helps us compile the only rankings of this kind for SMBs and the channel pro organizations that serve them."
