Barracuda Cloud Generation Firewalls

Security, Access, and Reliability for Cloud-Connected Networks and Applications

Firewalls Engineered for the Cloud

  • Tight integration with cloud platforms
  • Budget-friendly consumption models
  • Secure, reliable branch-to-cloud connectivity
  • Central management of security at the source

Traditional security strategies and firewalls were never intended for today’s cloud-integrated infrastructures and workloads. They can’t give branch offices direct access to your cloud applications. They often don’t support cloud-friendly consumption models, and they don’t have the scalability and flexibility that cloud-hosted applications demand.

Barracuda NextGen Firewalls and Web Application Firewalls are the industry’s first solutions purpose-built for securing cloud-connected networks. They protect all your users, applications, and data – regardless of what your infrastructure looks like. They ensure secure and reliable connections among multiple sites on premises and the cloud with consumption-based pricing, saving you money on infrastructure costs.

Moving from the Data Center to the Public Cloud

When you migrate your applications to the public cloud, traditional on-premises firewall functionality often doesn’t translate well to public cloud environments. Cloud Generation Firewalls are designed to provide support for public cloud deployment best practices, support public cloud specific use cases and facilitate you with a commercial model designed for public cloud consumption.

Scale Out for Branch-to-Cloud Connectivity

Start with a single site and a few SaaS applications–or connect your entire distributed, multi-site organization to a full array of cloud applications. Either way, Barracuda Cloud Generation Firewalls will ensure seamless connectivity across your sites, Internet applications, and cloud data centers. Intelligent traffic regulation, optimized site-to-site connectivity, and advanced SD-WAN make ensure reliable connectivity from any location – without having to backhaul network traffic to a central office. Scaling out to more locations and cloud workloads is easy with zero-touch provisioning and fully centralized management.

Scale Up with Native Public Cloud Integration

Barracuda Cloud Generation Firewalls natively integrate with public cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). To simplify deployment, they fully leverage cloud automation, templated deployments, cloud network constructs, and auto scaling. Once deployed in the cloud, you can make use of public-cloud management and monitoring tools to manage your firewalls. You can deploy them in micro-segmented, high-availability clusters for redundancy across architectures that span multiple availability zones. With built-in API interfaces, you can easily integrate with common agile DevOps tool chains like Puppet and monitoring tools like Splunk to support end-to-end workflow automation.

Centrally Manage Security at the Source

Centralized management is at the heart of Barracuda’s security architectures. From a single pane of glass, you can deploy firewall instances, manage security policies, regulate traffic flows, and monitor your security posture across your entire network on premises and in the cloud. This deployment-independent management enables massive scalability with minimal administrative overhead. You can implement security exactly where it is needed, with firewall instances that automatically migrate and scale along with applications and workloads.

Cloud-Ready Consumption

Barracuda Cloud Generation Firewalls make security and connectivity economical regardless of your network architecture. In the public cloud platform, they can be deployed as licensed virtual instances (BYOL), pay-as-you-go licenses, or metered billing* that scales elastically with your workload. On premises, they can be deployed as appliances or on virtual machines at your headquarters. They can also be deployed at branch offices or IoT-connected sites.
