Bridge to Cloud

Get Started in the Cloud with Barracuda’s "Cloud Ready" Initiative

Purchase a Qualifying On-Premises Network or Application Security Product, Get Free Licenses for the Same Solution in AWS and Azure.

Removing Barriers to Your Cloud Migration

  • Free 90-day cloud licenses included with physical and virtual Barracuda firewall licenses.
  • Activate your free licenses on AWS and Azure.

Migrating to the cloud can be a complex process. The need to continue securing on-premises infrastructures while also extending network and application security to new cloud deployments can add extra cost and complexity.

Barracuda’s new “Cloud Ready” initiative is intended to eliminate obstacles and help you move to the cloud faster, more cost-effectively, and with greater confidence.

As of February 3, 2017, all new purchases of an on-premises Barracuda NextGen Firewall or Barracuda Web Application Firewall appliance—whether virtual or physical—will automatically allow the end user to license the same solution offered in both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure for up to 90 days ("Trial Period") at no additional cost. You have 120 days to activate your free licenses.*

This initiative lets you secure your on-premises deployments, and automatically extend the same protection to your cloud deployments as you roll them out. Combined with Barracuda's award winning, expert technical and customer support, you'll have everything you need to launch a successful cloud project.
