NextGen Firewall F

Deploying Multi-Tier Architectures

Segmenting networks into multiple tiers provides security, visibility, and compliance for on-premises applications. Additionally, this can be leveraged when those applications are deployed in public cloud environments through the Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series.

The Barracuda NextGen Firewall F secures, restricts, and monitors the communications between these tiers, and limits the potential damage to an organization in the event of an attack.

By filling the functional gaps between cloud infrastructure security and a defense-in-depth strategy, the Barracuda NextGen Firewall provides protection between the application and data layers, rather than solely where the cloud network starts. It provides:

  • Comprehensive security enforcement inside the cloud
  • Threat detection and traffic monitoring between cloud application components
  • Secure integration with on-premises resources
  • Restricted and encrypted, role-based administrative access to application infrastructure

Enhancing ExpressRoute Security

Azure ExpressRoute allows you to establish private connections between Azure data centers and your on-premises infrastructure and provides high throughput, low latencies, failure resilient connectivity, and consistent performance. Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series enhances ExpressRoute security and increases the reliability of Azure session connections.


  • Encrypt traffic across ExpressRoute
  • Check traffic for network threats and malware
  • Prevent unwanted traffic from entering or leaving the cloud


  • Provide transparent fall back to Internet VPN in case of MPLS failure while preserving all running sessions
  • Bond ExpressRoute with up to 23 Internet uplinks using Barracuda TINA VPN technology


  • Log all traffic for troubleshooting and reporting purposes

  • Enforce security policies based on user identity
