Barracuda's Cloud Generation Firewalls redefine the role of the Firewall from a perimeter security solution to a distributed network optimization solution that scales across any number of locations and applications, connects on-premises and cloud infrastructures, and helps organizations transform their business.
From the Next Generation Firewall to a Cloud Generation Solution
In the cloud era, network firewalls must do more than secure your network. They must also ensure you have uninterrupted network availability and robust access to cloud-hosted applications.
Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is a family of physical appliance, virtual, and cloud-based appliances that protect and enhance your dispersed network infrastructure. They deliver advanced security by tightly integrating a comprehensive set of next-generation firewall technologies, including Layer 7 application profiling, intrusion prevention, web filtering, malware and advanced threat protection, antispam protection, and network access control.
In addition, Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls combine highly resilient VPN technology with intelligent traffic management and WAN optimization capabilities. This lets you reduce line costs, increase overall network availability, improve site-to-site connectivity, and ensure uninterrupted access to applications hosted in the cloud. Scalable centralized management helps you reduce administrative overhead while defining and enforcing granular policies across your entire dispersed network.
Barracuda's cloud-ready firewalls are ideal for multi-site enterprises, managed service providers, and other organizations with complex, dispersed network infrastructures.
Advanced Threat Protection
- Protection Against Advanced Threats and Zero-Hour Attacks.
- Secure SD-WAN: Reduce Costs and Ensure Application Availability.
- Remote VPN Access for Off-Network Users – Anytime, Anywhere.
- Secure Migration to the Public Cloud and Hybrid Environments.
- Secure Connectivity for IoT Devices and Industrial Control Systems.
In today's constantly evolving threat landscape, your organization faces zero-hour malware exploits and advanced persistent threats that routinely bypass traditional, signature-based IPS and antivirus engines. Barracuda Advanced Threat Protection gives your security infrastructure the ability to identify and block new, sophisticated threats-without affecting network performance and throughput.
Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls include full next-generation Security paired with all network optimization and management functionality today known as Secure SD-WAN. This includes true zero touch deployment (ZTD), dynamic bandwidth measurement, performance based transport selection, application specific routing and even data duplication and WAN optimization technology. VPN tunnels between sites can make use of multiple uplinks simultaneously and dynamically assign the best path for the application.
Cut MPLS Costs with Bandwidth Optimization
- Balancing of Internet traffic across multiple uplinks to minimize downtime and improve performance
- VPN across multiple broadband connections and MPLS replacement
- Up to 24 physical uplinks to create highly redundant VPN tunnels
- Replacing network backhauling central policy enforcement architectures with direct internet breakouts
- Faster access to cloud applications like Office 365 by dynamically prioritizing them over non-critical traffic
- Guaranteed user access to critical applications through granular policy controls
- Increased available bandwidth with built-in traffic compression and data deduplication
- Auto creation of VPN tunnels between spokes in a hub-and-spoke architecture to enhance connection quality for latency-sensitive traffic
If you have branch offices and remote locations that need to run SaaS applications or connect to your network, Barracuda can dramatically reduce your WAN costs. The traditional approach of backhauling traffic to a main office via costly MPLS leased lines can’t deliver on price and performance in the cloud era.
Barracuda lets you establish direct internet breakouts for optimized cloud accessibility. Our SD-WAN maintains a fully meshed VPN using less expensive broadband connections. Use the Savings Calculator to see how much your organization to save.
