As according to a newly issued press release, networking giants Barracuda have just placed Ken Grohe on their payroll. This well-known storage expert has just come off employment with some large name companies spanning his massive 26+ year campaign in the industry.




Barracuda is a provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, with their goal set to simplify IT. Their solutions are reportedly used by more then 150,000 organizations worldwide. With Grohe appointed as their Senior Vice President & General Manager of Emerging Products, he will oversee the CudaTel and CudaEye product lines while helping drive sales for the Barracuda copy (file syncing and sharing) and SignNow (eSignature) services.


Steve Duplessie, founder and senior analyst at ESG praised Grohe's previous achievements and work ethic, stating that he "an industry star joining a growing company", further stating that "Barracuda continues to impress with its talent acquisition and its relentless execution."


"As I look forward to the potential of our emerging product categories, I am excited to help enable and accelerate our Total Threat Protection and Data Protection Plus initiatives to further establish Barracuda as the solution of choice for our customers and partners," said Grohe.


We're interested to see what direction this man can take the company, he's got a rather large reputation for massive business and market share increases in his respective fields - so there's high hopes he'll replicate this once again with his new employer.
