Managing hundreds or thousands of systems can require a costly, time-intensive process by qualified staff. The Barracuda NextGen Control Center can significantly decrease administrative overhead.
The Barracuda NextGen Control Center gives full control over system administration costs.
Lifecycle costs: Central update management drastically lowers the time spent deploying patches. Even the Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series, with different software versions can be centrally managed at the same time.
Deployment costs: Using the Barracuda NextGen Control Center, rollouts with hundreds of devices can be completed within a few weeks instead of months.
Operating costs: The Barracuda NextGen Control Center helps to significantly reduce the cost associated with security management while providing extra functionality both centrally and locally at the managed gateways.
Firewall rulesets and other security policies, as well as, software patches and version
upgrades are centrally controlled from within the management console. Deployment can
be scheduled and applied to all managed devices. Highly customizable administrative
roles allow delegation of administrative capabilities for specific departments or locations.

can implement centrally defined security rules at every location. Furthermore, the
integrated revision control system provides easy audits and cuts overheads.
