The modern network includes a combination of local servers, remote devices and cloud-hosted applications. If you use cloud-based platforms such as Office 365, Salesforce, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure, you need to ensure that all of your critical applications and devices are available when needed and secured. Barracuda Next-Gen Firewall are purpose-built for the modern, distributed network in which network performance and availability is as important as security. Unlike traditional port-based firewalls, Barracuda firewalls are application-aware, enabling you to regulate application usage and intelligently prioritize network traffic. Barracuda Next-Gen Firewall offers two series of firewalls, each delivering advanced, next-generation performance and protection, yet geared for distinct environments. The X-Series is designed for small to mid-market organizations that need to quickly and easily deploy a next-generation firewall.
The F-Series is the Barracuda Firewall for the cloud era. It consolidates advanced, next-generation firewall, link balancing, and WAN Optimization technologies into one easy-to-manage appliance capable of on-premises, cloud, and virtual deployments. The F-Series allows organizations and managed services providers to securely enable remote Internet breakouts without the need to backhaul traffic. Appliance models are available from ultra-small appliances — for deployments with Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives — and small desktops for small office and home office (SOHO), all the way up to data center-level models. Yet all Barracuda Next-Gen F-Series Firewalls, regardless of deployment type or size, are manageable from a single pane of glass. The Barracuda Next-Gen Control Center significantly increases roll out speed while reducing the associated costs involved in deploying, managing, and monitoring tens, hundreds, or even thousands of remote Next-Gen Firewall F-Series devices.
Barracuda Next-Gen Firewall — Protect From Advanced Malware and Zero-Hour Attacks
Barracuda Next-Gen Firewall features advanced security capabilities, including integrated Intrusion Prevention (IPS), URL filtering and antivirus to identify and block evasion attempts that would trick traditional systems. Barracuda’s security extends beyond your network to Barracuda’s Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) cloud for both statistical and sandboxing analysis of zero-day and targeted threats that routinely bypass signature-based IPS and antivirus engines. User and application awareness provides intelligence and visibility to craft business rules to manage bandwidth and prioritize network traffic to by application. You can easily customize network access, application usage and bandwidth allocation for specific users and groups. When needed, traffic to non-business-related applications can be limited, even when this traffic is encrypted. Dynamic link balancing dynamically balances traffic across multiple Internet connections. This ensures business continuity through reliable Internet access as well as allows you to efficiently utilize available bandwidth.
