We're excited to be participating in the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington DC next week, where we’ll have a number of announcements related to our offerings available in Azure, including a new version of our Web Application Firewall, a use case with a well-known global customer, and an extension of the work we’re doing with Microsoft. Plus, we have three different slots on stage and some pretty cool giveaways (appliance and virtual bundles at no cost, anyone?! -- read below to find out how to win).
Barracuda offers two key security solutions for Microsoft Azure.
Barracuda Web Application Firewall
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall for Microsoft Azure is the first integrated, fully scalable security solution on Microsoft Azure. With predefined security templates for web applications and 3rd party packaged applications like Microsoft SharePoint, companies of all sizes can enjoy total application security with no need to learn, configure, and manage complex technology. It is fully integrated with Microsoft Azure and can dynamically scale to meet application performance and workload requirements.
Barracuda NG Firewall
The Barracuda NG Firewall for Microsoft Azure provides next generation firewalling and secure remote access to Microsoft Azure. It allows organizations to deploy sophisticated multi-zone network architecture in Azure, just like their on-premise networks. It enables secure high speed (>1 Gbps) site-to-site and client-to-site connectivity between on-premise networks, user devices and Microsoft Azure. Best of all, its industry best centralized management ensures highly scalable and fault tolerant network infrastructure required by today’s users without the management overhead.
Learn more about how the Barracuda NG Firewall can help your organization by reading Firewall in the Cloud- Microsoft Azure Whitepaper.
Here's how you can learn more about our relationship with Microsoft, how we can help organizations securely migrate to the Azure cloud with confidence, and learn more about our products and services available in Azure. Join us at the Worldwide Partner Conference:
