Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian watches over your security and compliance, so your developers can focus on what they do best—building great business applications.
Gain visibility over your cloud security
In the cloud, your network can change rapidly. That’s one of its benefits, but it’s a challenge for visibility and management. Add the complications of a multi-cloud environment and it becomes very difficult to visualize your infrastructure, drill down into detail, gather resource-level information, and understand the relationships among those resources and how they affect compliance and your security posture.
Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian makes it easy to visualize all your cloud assets and their interrelationships from network, application, and access perspectives. effortlessly providing you with valuable insights.
Automate regulatory and policy compliance
Your developers move fast to bring new services and applications online. But if deployment is delayed for slow, error-prone manual compliance processes—ensuring conformity with PCI DSS, CIS, NIST, HIPAA, etc.—then you lose out on much of the benefit of agile DevOps.
Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian installs in minutes and constantly scans your entire cloud infrastructure for policy violations. Using pre-defined or custom profiles, it automates remediation and maintains continuous compliance—so your developer teams can focus on building fast.
Eliminate latent threats from your cloud storage
Latent threats and malware can lurk undetected in your cloud storage for long periods, only to cause devastating effects when they are eventually triggered to become active. Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian can leverage Advanced Threat Protection to automatically scan the contents of your AWS S3 buckets. Using multiple layers of analysis, including advanced sandboxing, Advanced Threat Protection identifies and eliminates any latent threats, including previously unknown threats. You can also enable Advanced Threat Protection on your Barracuda CloudGen WAFs or CloudGen Firewalls, to protect your business by detecting and blocking inbound threats.
Manage configuration drift
Ensuring that you maintain the correct rights and privileges to cloud services across environments can be challenging when your developers move fast. Should a resource change and deviate into non-compliance, Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian will automatically alert, remediate, and present activity reports for that user, while quarantining the user or application to prevent further changes that affect your security posture.
The Barracuda difference—a full-stack security solution
Today, attackers move fast by automating the exploitation of misconfigured resources—to defend your network, you have to be just as fast. Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian polices and automatically remediates your management and data planes by instrumenting and configuring native controls. In addition, it is able to instantly configure and deploy Barracuda CloudGen WAFs and CloudGen Firewalls as needed to ensure seamless, comprehensive security across your entire cloud infrastructure.
