Secure, Reliable Connectivity for Hybrid Networks
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 Microsoft Azure, you need to ensure that all of your critical applications and devices are available when needed and secured.
Barracuda NextGen Firewalls are purpose-built for the modern, distributed network in which network performance and availability is as important as security. Unlike traditional port-based firewalls, our firewalls are application-aware, enabling you to regulate application usage and intelligently prioritize network traffic.
We offer 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 datacenter-level models. Yet all Barracuda NextGen F-Series Firewalls, regardless of deployment type or size, are manageable from a single pane of glass. The Barracuda NextGen Control Center significantly increases rollout speed while reducing the associated costs involved in deploying, managing, and monitoring tens, hundreds, or even thousands of remote NextGen Firewall F-Series devices.
Protect Your Organization from Advanced Malware and Zero-Hour Attacks
Barracuda NextGen Firewalls feature 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 Detection (ATD) cloud for both statistical and sandboxing analysis of zero-day and targeted threats that routinely bypass signature-based IPS and antivirus engines.
Intelligently Manage Your Organization’s Traffic
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.
Intelligent site-to-site connection management provides high quality, reliable connectivity across multiple locations (both hardware and virtual appliances). IPsec VPNs ensure secure connectivity to remote sites, centralized offices, as well as public cloud offerings like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
Easily Manage Your Network Growth
In modern organizations, network perimeter intelligence extends across highly dispersed environments: remote sites, branch offices and satellite locations. As your policy enforcement becomes more dispersed, centralized management becomes more important to minimize management overhead and maintain a uniform security posture.
For this reason, central management is integrated into the Barracuda next-generation firewall architecture. Administrators can easily define global security parameters, configure security and network access policies, control firewall firmware update revisions, and manage user settings. Barracuda provides a true centralized management system that is fully scalable across thousands of locations through a single pane of glass.
Making the Cloud Safe for Business
Migrating your email to the cloud gives your organization the convenience of easy access to email and documents with reduced management overhead. However, trusting your most important data to the cloud raises new concerns about security, compliance and data protection.
1. How do you protect against all of the threats associated with web-based business email? 2. How do you demonstrate compliance and retention if all emails are stored in the same production environment? 3. And, how do you protect against human-caused data loss?
Email-Borne Threat Protection
Your responsibility to safeguard your emails is the same in the cloud as it is for on-premises solutions. Trusted by thousands of businesses, Barracuda Essentials provides you with industry-leading protection from email-borne attacks, spam, and viruses. It includes advanced security features like attachment sandboxing as well anti-virus, anti-phishing, and typosquatted link protection to secure against sophisticated targeted attacks. Data loss protection and email encryption keep sensitive data such as credit cards and customer data from leaving your organization. Email continuity services ensures that email operations continue by failing over to a cloud-based, email service, in the event primary email services become unavailable.
Archiving for Compliance
There are strong legal and business reasons to ensure that emails are retained, safely archived and easily searched. Barracuda Essentials integrates with Office 365 to create a powerful yet extremely intuitive email retention and e-discovery system.
You can set up granular email retention policies to ensure that important emails are retained and archived to Barracuda’s cloud. All of the archived emails can be quickly searched and exported as needed. In fact, our native and mobile apps let you search messages even when email services are unavailable.
In the event of litigation, you can put legal holds on emails to prevent tampering or removal until the hold expires or is removed.
Backup and Recovery for Office 365
Everyday, more and more organizations are migrating to SaaS and Cloud-hosted environments like Office 365. While these environments are fantastic ways to mitigate against natural and mechanical failures, human-caused data loss and advanced persistent threats that put your data at risk are always present. Having a sound backup and recovery strategy allows you to continue providing backup and recovery services in the event of accidental or malicious deletion or even recovering data to avoiding paying ransom in the event you are hit by an ransomware attack.
