Today, nearly all traffic looks like web traffic to a traditional port-based firewall. To get real visibility into WAN activity—and protection from modern attacks— requires a new generation of firewall capabilities, paired with cloud-based functions to minimize resource demands.

Product Spotlight:

  • Next-generation perimeter security
  • Optimize multiple WAN links
  • User visibility and application awareness
  • Cloud-based content filtering, malware protection, and reporting
  • High-Performance IDS/IPS
  • Secure VPN with clients for Windows, Mac, and Linux

The Barracuda Advantage:

  • Unlimited protected IPs
  • Unlimited site-to-site and client-to-site VPN licensing
  • Integrated cloud-based content filtering
  • Centralized management of all devices
  • Affordable, all-inclusive pricing
  • Easy-to-use web-based administration

Next-Generation Capabilities:

The Barracuda Firewall uses Layer 7 application visibility and user-identity awareness to enable enforcement of granular access policies. Define policies based on any combination of application, user or group ID, time, and other criteria. Policies can even respond to specific application behaviors or features—for example, allow all employees to use Skype voice, but allow only executives to use Skype video, except after business hours.

Leveraging Cloud Resources:

By offloading processor-intensive content filtering and malware protection to the cloud, the Barracuda Firewall ensures that on-premises resources are fully available to deliver next-generation firewall capabilities without impacting throughput. And with effectively unlimited resources available in the cloud, scaling to meet growing needs is easy and transparent.

Affordable and Easy to Use:

The Barracuda Firewall is the first firewall appliance to combine the power of nextgeneration capabilities with the elasticity of the cloud. Unmatched ease of use means there's no need for additional IT staff or special training. And with affordable, allinclusive pricing, the Barracuda Firewall lets you budget with total confidence that there won't be surprise costs down the road.
