Virtualization has changed the way IT administrators build their infrastructure by enabling multiple systems and applications to co—exist on a single server. With rapid deployments and performance increases, it is no surprise that most organizations are making the shift to virtualization. As organizations move to a virtualized infrastructure, it’s smart to consider how to leverage virtualization, ultimately improving security as well. There are a number of security benefits to be derived from virtualizing an organization’s IT infrastructure. With Barracuda VMware solutions you can achieve faster recovery after an attack, get better forensic visibility of the attack, security updates are easier to manage, and are more cost—effective and scalable than operating physical appliances. While the benefits of virtualization are many, new attack surfaces present themselves as companies build their own private clouds.
Organizations that are virtualizing network resources such as desktop environments, mail infrastructures, and web applications should also proactively strategize how to secure the components being virtualized, as well as the infrastructure itself. Barracuda has a comprehensive portfolio of solutions to provide security and protect against all network threat vectors for VMware environments. Implementing a virtualized firewall enables companies to easily scale their security resources in highly distributed environments, with all the benefits of a physical appliance. The Barracuda NextGen Firewall F—Series Vx is a powerful next—generation, application-aware firewall that also offers best—of—breed intrusion prevention, site—to—site and client—to—site VPN, content filtering, and intelligent traffic prioritization, designed specifically for highly distributed, virtual environments.

Barracuda VMware Back Up And Recovery
Barracuda VMware solutions provides effective back up and recovery solutions that support both VMware environments and physical environments. Let’s take a look at why this is necessary and how it works. Protecting virtual environments that run alongside legacy physical environments presents challenges — keeping systems, applications, and data across all different environments up and running, even in the event of a disaster. Busy IT administrators need a simple solution to achieve this. Barracuda VMware Back up is an all—in—one data protection solution that seamlessly protects both physical and virtual environments. With software, storage, and offsite replication integrated into an easy to deploy appliance, Barracuda VMware Back up is the perfect solution for organizations adopting VMware. When disaster strikes—be it human, hardware, or natural, IT administrators are under the gun to get the systems, applications, and data back up and running so users can be brought from zero to productivity in as little time as possible.
LiveBoot and Cloud LiveBoot for VMware help minimize downtime with the ability to boot VMware virtual machines within minutes in the event of failure. If local primary storage fails, Barracuda Backup can act as storage and get those virtual machines up and running rapidly. If a site disaster occurs, Barracuda Backup can boot the virtual machines entirely from Barracuda VMware Cloud Storage. Accessing, storing, and retaining email for long periods of time are critical requirements for any organization, but are often quite challenging for IT. Barracuda Message Archiver Vx enhances user productivity and reduces cost and risk by simplifying user access, email management, eDiscovery and compliance. Delivered as a virtual appliance, you can deploy the Barracuda Message Archiver into your VMware environment without requiring additional hardware. Barracuda Message Archiver Vx is ideal for organizations looking to reduce their email storage requirements and boost user productivity with mobile or desktop access to any email ever sent or received.
To protect your backup systems from failures, all Barracuda Backup products include Energize Updates that automatically apply software updates to improve performance and keep you protected from the latest threats. Updates are sent as frequently as needed to protect you from zero—day security threats. Barracuda Instant Replacement provides next—business—day replacement in case of failure or malfunction. Barracuda will even preload the most recent data and configuration settings stored in Barracuda Cloud Storage onto the replacement unit for emergency restores in the event of a complete site disaster.
And an included complimentary hardware refresh every four years will keep you on the latest platform at no additional cost. When choosing a data protection solution, it pays to look beyond the hardware and software to the company that stands behind the product. Barracuda is the world’s leading provider (in units shipped) of Purpose—Built Backup Appliances (PBBA), and is also a leading provider of cloud-based data protection.
The F—Series cloud—ready firewalls improve site—to—site connectivity and give you uninterrupted access to applications hosted in the cloud—all while simplifying network administration and reducing IT overhead for multi—site organizations and managed service providers.
