DEMOfall 2005 Conference

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 22, 2005--Barracuda Networks, Inc., today announced it has been selected to participate in DEMOfall 2005, one of the world's premier forums for new technology innovations. At the show, to be held Sept. 19-21 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, Calif., Barracuda Networks will launch a new hardware appliance that will create a secure and seamless channel for rapid business communication. Barracuda Networks is one of only 70 companies invited to participate in this year's DEMO conference.

"In the past three years, Barracuda Networks has carved a niche in the highly developed email marketplace by offering an affordable solution to the widespread spam and virus problem," said Chris Shipley, executive producer of DEMOfall 2005. "Their new product follows this same philosophy, and provides a new way to manage and secure real-time messaging, a communication channel that is not yet as entrenched in the business arena as email. We are confident that the DEMO audience will find this product fills a great need within their organizations."

The DEMO conference has earned a solid reputation as the launch pad for some of today's most widely-used technologies and products. In its 15-year history, DEMO has helped more than 1,000 companies bring ground-breaking new technologies to market making it the authoritative event for the executives, media and investors that attend each year.

"We are thrilled to be participating in this year's DEMO conference," said Dean Drako, president and CEO of Barracuda Networks. "This latest product from Barracuda Networks represents our ongoing focus on providing powerful and innovative solutions to help businesses manage and protect all network applications, such as real-time messaging, easily and affordably."
