Secure your cloud network:
Barracuda CloudGen Firewall for Azure

Today, network firewalls must do more than just secure and partition your network. They must also ensure you have uninterrupted network availability and always-on, optimized access to cloud-hosted applications. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is optimized from the ground up to protect cloud-hosted networks and manage access to applications hosted in Microsoft Azure. Deployment is easy via Rest API automation and predefined templates.

No need to choose between SD-WAN and Microsoft Virtual WAN—Barracuda CloudGen Firewall supports both.

Barracuda Networks offers fully integrated SD-WAN functionality with its network security solution and lets you leverage the Microsoft Global Network to build a high-performance WAN in one easy-to-deploy solution.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall supports up to 24 physical uplinks (including Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute) per logical VPN line. So even if one uplink fails, your VPN connectivity to your cloud applications is still up and running. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall always chooses the best available uplink based on application characteristics. This also applies to direct internet access, where multiple uplinks can be shared to create better bandwidth and the best links are chosen based on performance.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall uses Azure Virtual WAN and the Microsoft Global Network for ultra-fast branch-to-branch and branch-to-cloud connectivity. The Microsoft Global Network is the world’s fastest and most wide-spread ultra-high-speed fiber network. Besides automation and ultra-fast connectivity to cloud-hosted applications in Azure, this solution also offers the fastest access to Office 365.

Seamless, anytime-anywhere accessibility to business-critical corporate resources

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall gives you virtually unlimited capability to remotely connect users to Azure-based applications with granular control by user and application.

Azure provides a finite number of remote connections to network-facing applications, whereas you may want remote workers to have access across a range of devices, from mobiles to laptops. Unfortunately, the security built into such devices often leaves security gaps and compromises your ability to leverage Azure for these mission-critical applications.

By deploying Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, you gain an almost unlimited capability to remotely connect users to these applications. Dedicated VPN clients are available for the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall to support most popular device operating systems. CloudGen Firewall also provides highly granular control, which can be defined both by user and application, further hardening your security when running mission-critical apps in the cloud.

Optimize your security posture and WAN connectivity status with Barracuda CloudGen Firewall and Barracuda Firewall Control Center.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall lets you manage your cloud and on-premises environments from a single interface. There is no need to juggle security and SD-WAN products from multiple vendors or settle for reduced feature-sets for cloud versions of on-premises firewalls.

As you shift workloads from your legacy on-premises infrastructure to the cloud, some applications likely cannot be migrated to Azure and must instead be kept on-premises. As a result, you must be able to manage security across a hybrid infrastructure.

Even if you leverage Azure Stack, which lets you duplicate your Azure environment on-premises, you are still running a hybrid model. And even if you are 100-percent cloud-based, you may run multiple clouds—including Azure for some applications, your own private cloud for others, and sometimes other third-party clouds.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall provides a consistent user experience across hybrid environments. It can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud or both. Barracuda Firewall Control Center provides a single-pane-of-glass interface, allowing multiple instances to be managed regardless of how they are deployed.

Flexible deployment to match your needs

You can deploy Barracuda CloudGen Firewall for Azure using various licensing models and configurations to match your infrastructure and minimize costs. CloudGen Firewall for Azure can be licensed on an annual “bring-your-own-license” (BYOL) basis, on an hourly “pay-as-you-go” (PAYG) basis, or on a metered-billing basis. License types can be mixed for increased flexibility.
