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.
