Network Security on Google Cloud

Google Cloud Platform was built from the ground up for optimal security and ease of use, to offer you a public-cloud infrastructure that truly meets your needs.

But, just as with other cloud platforms, the “shared responsibility” security model means that you will require an additional layer of security when deploying sensitive workloads.

Barracuda NextGen Firewall F Series is the first network firewall available on Google Cloud Platform. It fits seamlessly within the Google security model, so you can easily secure your network using an advanced, full-featured firewall solution.

The First Network Firewall on GCP

Barracuda NextGen Firewall F Series provides network-based protection that is fully integrated with the Google Cloud Platform.

The “shared responsibility” model of security for cloud platforms means that you are responsible for protecting sensitive data when you migrate existing workloads.

That’s why, even though Google Cloud was built from the ground up for security, you should still add an additional firewall to protect your sensitive data.

Barracuda NextGen Firewall F Series provides:

  • Full application visibility and user awareness
  • IPS, URL filtering, antivirus, and Advanced Threat Protection
  • Outstanding traffic visibility tools
  • Flexible client-based and clientless VPN options for secure access to cloud resources
  • Hybrid office-to-cloud connectivity using built-in SD-WAN capabilities

Sitting between your network and the internet, it inspects all inbound and outbound traffic for malware and any other content prohibited by policy. Inbound traffic that passes inspection is sent on to the intended application or workload. Outbound traffic receives the same scrutiny, in order to prevent data loss and block advanced threats that may originate within your organization.

Barracuda NextGen Firewall F Series makes it easy for you to:

  • Enforce granular application- and user-aware security policies
  • Block known and unknown malware with Advanced Threat Protection
  • Prevent network intrusion with built-in IPS
  • Exceptional traffic monitoring and troubleshooting tools
