Overview

For today’s connected business, constant interaction with online resources and applications is a simple necessity—despite the risks of lost productivity, wasted bandwidth, and data loss. The Barracuda Web Security Gateway lets organizations enjoy the benefits of web connectivity without the risks.

The Barracuda Advantage

  • Integrated and comprehensive solution
  • Regulate Web application activity, including Google Apps
  • Monitor and archive social-network messages (Barracuda Message Archiver required for archival of alert messages)
  • Cloud based URL lookup utilizing Barracuda’s Web Categorization Service featuring dynamic page scanning and classification.
  • No per-user or per-feature fees

Product Spotlight

  • Predefined content-filtering categories
  • Granular, user-aware policies
  • Detailed, real-time visibility
  • Integrated spyware and virus protection
  • Unlimited remote filtering agents (models 410 and above)
  • Available Advanced Threat Protection

Constantly Evolving Capabilities

The Barracuda Web Security Gateway is continually updated with the latest malware signatures, suspicious URL listings, and online application functionality. And as new requirements emerge—such as the need to monitor and regulate social-networking activities—upgrading with new capabilities is automatic, and always transparent.

Knowledge = Power

The Barracuda Web Security Gateway’s intuitive management interface delivers detailed, real-time visibility into network activity and web interactions. This lets administrators identify users and applications that waste bandwidth and harm productivity, and enforce granular policies to regulate access without impacting legitimate business uses.

Security Beyond Boundaries

Enforcing access policies on remote and mobile devices that are used off-network is critical for preventing malware intrusions into the network, and for preventing data loss. The Barracuda Web Security Gateway includes unlimited licenses for agents and tools that ensure users and devices are protected whether they are on the network or at a public Wi-Fi hotspot.

"The biggest challenge our company had was providing proper bandwidth to our 32 offices. The Barracuda Web Security Gateway showed us that we did not need to add more bandwidth, just limit non-business-essential web surfing."
- Michael Barker, Systems Administrator Alain Pinel Realtors
