Campbell, Calif. (DEC 14, 2016) – Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA) -
- Barracuda NextGen Firewall is now available for Google Cloud Platform customers.
- Google Cloud Platform customers can purchase the Barracuda NextGen Firewall with Bring Your Own License (BYOL) options from Barracuda.
- Designed for the cloud era, Barracuda NextGen Firewalls can be natively deployed in public cloud platforms to provide segmentation, security and connectivity in cloud and hybrid environments.
Barracuda announced today that its NextGen Firewall is now available for customers using Google Cloud Platform and can be purchased from Barracuda via the BYOL model. Barracuda NextGen Firewall was developed for highly distributed networks with the advanced security and management capabilities that are required for cloud and hybrid environments. Barracuda NextGen Firewall – which is available directly on AWS Marketplace, Microsoft Azure, and now Google Cloud Platform – provides flexible remote access, application visibility, user awareness, and highly granular security policy management to customers looking to securely leverage cloud platforms.
“With the launch of our Barracuda NextGen Firewall for Google Cloud Platform, we are broadening access to our security innovations built for cloud environments,” said Nicole Napiltonia, Vice President, Alliances at Barracuda. “The cloud brings about many benefits to organizations looking to efficiently scale their workloads and applications, and Google is without a doubt a key driver in this trend. We are excited to bring the Barracuda NextGen Firewall to Google Cloud Platform customers, helping them maximize their cloud investments securely and affordably.”
Cloud-Ready Connectivity and Management for Google Cloud Platform
Traditional next-generation firewalls are designed to be deployed at the gateway in backhauled network environments, which is not sufficient for today’s cloud and hybrid environments. Barracuda NextGen Firewall was designed for the cloud era, with features that enable direct access to cloud applications in dispersed networks where quality of service, network reliability, and secure connectivity are required at every location. Barracuda NextGen Firewall combines the full security feature stack expected from a top of the line next-generation firewall with full SD-WAN capabilities for cloud access optimization at every location in an organization’s network. Barracuda’s fully integrated central management, which is scalable from a few dozen to thousands of remote locations, helps improve security, compliance, and network connectivity at every location without the need to backhaul traffic.
“Google Cloud Platform helps customers spend less time managing infrastructure, provisioning servers and configuring networks and more time focusing on their own core businesses,” said Adam Massey, Director, Strategic Technology Partners at Google. “Barracuda operates with a philosophy to simplify IT for customers, and they bring a valuable security contribution to GCP.”
“The Barracuda NextGen Firewall on Google Cloud Platform helped us to secure remote connectivity in Google Cloud – helping our business to stay protected, while still taking advantage of the flexibility and agility of using a public cloud infrastructure for our distributed networks,” explained Timo Schilling, network architect for SAG Cloud GmbH, a subsidiary of Software AG, an early customer of the Barracuda NextGen Firewall on Google Cloud Platform.
