The Barracuda Firewall provides all next-generation application control and user identity functions in an easy-to-use and affordable solution. It outperforms traditional firewalls and UTMs by integrating a powerful next-generation firewall appliance with scalable cloud content security. While the appliance is optimized for bandwidth-sensitive tasks like packet forwarding and routing, Layer 7 application control, Intrusion Prevention (IPS), DNS/DHCP services, and VPN connectivity, the cloud component handles processor-intensive tasks like virus scanning, content filtering, and reporting.
The affordable, all-inclusive pricing model requires no per-user, per-module, or VPN license fees, simplifying the investment in network and content security. Administration is easy with an intuitive web interface and free, cloud-based central management. The combination of ease-of-use, powerful next-generation features, and affordability makes the Barracuda Firewall the perfect fit for small and medium-sized businesses.
The Barracuda Firewall anchors Barracuda’s modular security framework, which integrates purpose-built, best-of-breed, highly scalable security solutions to protect users, networks, and data center applications. Components like web and email security, web application security, and secure remote access integrate with the firewall, and can be centrally managed for aggregated visibility and control. Paired with consistent user interfaces and common administrative workflows, this approach provides a comprehensive security posture, simplified administration, and a highly scalable architecture.
