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.
