Yesterday I posted a story about SonicWALL’s recent licensing server failure and Astaro’s attempt to lure SonicWALL customers (“Astaro Responds to SonicWALL Failure”). After seeing my story, Ezra Hookano, VP of North American Sales for Barracuda Networks, emailed me with an offer that tops Astaro’s. Through January 31, 2009, Barracuda will accept trade of any SonicWALL email security appliance for a FREE Barracuda spam firewall. In addition, if you mention my article, you’ll get a free year’s worth of updates, maintenance, and technical support.

 

Oh, the fame…I might have to start wearing a hat and sunglasses when I leave the house! But seriously, these offers seem too good to pass up; you might want to check them out.
