Sitting between your network and the internet, it inspects all inbound and outbound traffic for malware and any other content prohibited by policy. Inbound traffic that passes inspection is sent on to the intended application or workload. Outbound traffic receives the same scrutiny, in order to prevent data loss and block advanced threats that may originate within your organization.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall Series makes it easy for you to:

  • Enforce granular application- and user-aware security policies
  • Block known and unknown malware with Advanced Threat Protection
  • Prevent network intrusion with built-in IPS
  • Use exceptional traffic monitoring and troubleshooting tools
