Barracuda CloudGen Firewall for Azure Virtual WAN

+

Microsoft and Barracuda

In a fast-changing business environment, building and maintaining a secure, high-performance wide area network and ensuring seamless availability of SaaS applications and cloud workloads is one of the key challenges for today’s IT professionals. Microsoft Azure Virtual WAN with Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is a winning combination for optimizing security, scalability and agility, and ensuring the highest levels of user experience.

Boosting the Office 365 User Experience NEW

Barracuda now supports the Office 365 control plane in Microsoft Azure Virtual WAN. This allows customers to specify the Office 365 traffic categories that they trust for direct internet breakout. Trusted Office 365 traffic will bypass proxies and route directly from the user location to the nearest Microsoft network location, avoiding traffic back-hauling and hair pining, thus providing optimal user experience and saving WAN costs.

The Office 365 policy set in Azure Virtual WAN is now automatically configured and enforced in every Barracuda CloudGen Firewall connected to Azure Virtual WAN. This ensures that Office 365 traffic will always be routed optimally following Microsoft’s recommendations.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall combines advanced security, highly resilient VPN technology and intelligent traffic management with WAN optimization capabilities.

Together with Microsoft, Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls automate the process of building a secure high-performance branch-to-branch network via the Azure Virtual WAN.

  • Automatic branch-to-branch connectivity
  • Automatic branch-to-Microsoft Azure connectivity
  • Allow hundreds of remote locations to securely connect via Azure Virtual WAN
  • Active-active IPsec VPN connection for uninterrupted connectivity
  • Optimal routing and minimal latency for branch-to-branch and branch-to-Azure connectivity with Microsoft’s global network
  • Unified network and security policy management

Fast, secure, and reliable connectivity across user locations and the public cloud with Azure Virtual WAN.

Barracuda's Full Security SD-WAN

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall solutions 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.
