Overview

Secure, Reliable Connectivity for Hybrid Networks

Barracuda NextGen Firewalls provide next-gen security and network intelligence for hybrid networks ranging from headquarters and remote offices to public and private cloud deployments. The NextGen Firewalls optimize secure Internet breakouts and enable cloud consolidation all while reducing cost, complexity, and management overhead.

We offer three series of firewalls, each delivering advanced next-generation performance and protection, yet geared for distinct environments:

  • The F-Series is the Barracuda Firewall for the cloud era. It consolidates advanced, next-generation firewall, link balancing, and WAN Optimization technologies into one easy-to-manage appliance capable of on-premises, cloud, and virtual deployments. The F-Series allows organizations and managed services providers to securely enable remote Internet breakouts without the need to backhaul traffic.
  • The S-Series provides simple, secure, and scalable remote connectivity for the Internet of Things, including remote devices, kiosks, ATMs, and micro-offices.
  • The X-Series is designed for small- to mid-market organizations that need to deploy a next-generation firewall to a single or very few locations quickly and easily.

Benefits

Protect Your Organization from Advanced Malware and Zero-Hour Attacks

Barracuda NextGen Firewalls feature advanced security capabilities, including integrated Intrusion Prevention (IPS), URL filtering and antivirus to identify and block evasion attempts that would trick traditional systems. Barracuda’s security extends beyond your network to Barracuda’s Advanced Threat Detection (ATD) cloud for both statistical and sandboxing analysis of zero-day and targeted threats that routinely bypass signature-based IPS and antivirus engines.

Intelligently Manage Your Organization’s Traffic

User and application awareness provides intelligence and visibility to craft business rules to manage bandwidth and prioritize network traffic to by application. You can easily customize network access, application usage and bandwidth allocation for specific users and groups. When needed, traffic to non-business-related applications can be limited, even when this traffic is encrypted.

Dynamic link balancing dynamically balances traffic across multiple Internet connections. This ensures business continuity through reliable Internet access as well as allows you to efficiently utilize available bandwidth.

Intelligent site-to-site connection management provides high quality, reliable connectivity across multiple locations (both hardware and virtual appliances). IPsec VPNs ensure secure connectivity to remote sites, centralized offices, as well as public cloud offerings like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

Easily Manage Your Network Growth

In modern organizations, network perimeter intelligence extends across highly dispersed environments: remote sites, branch offices and satellite locations. As your policy enforcement becomes more dispersed, centralized management becomes more important to minimize management overhead and maintain a uniform security posture.

For this reason, central management is integrated into the Barracuda next-generation firewall architecture. Administrators can easily define global security parameters, configure security and network access policies, control firewall firmware update revisions, and manage user settings. Barracuda provides a true centralized management system that is fully scalable across thousands of locations through a single pane of glass.
