The Barracuda Firewall provides all next-generation application control and user identity functions in an easy-to-use and affordable solution. It outperforms traditional firewalls and UTMs by integrating a powerful next-generation firewall appliance with scalable cloud content security. While the appliance is optimized for bandwidth-sensitive tasks like packet forwarding and routing, Layer 7 application control, Intrusion Prevention (IPS), DNS/DHCP services, and VPN connectivity, the cloud component handles processor-intensive tasks like virus scanning, content filtering, and reporting.
The Barracuda Firewall uses Layer 7 application visibility and user-identity awareness to enable enforcement of granular access policies. Define policies based on any combination of application, user or group ID, time, and other criteria.
Leveraging Cloud Resources
By offloading processor-intensive content filtering and malware protection to the cloud, the Barracuda Firewall ensures that on-premises resources are fully available to deliver next-generation firewall capabilities without impacting throughput. And with effectively unlimited resources available in the cloud, scaling to meet growing needs is easy and transparent.
Affordable and Easy to Use
The Barracuda Firewall is the first firewall appliance to combine the power of nextgeneration capabilities with the elasticity of the cloud. Unmatched ease of use means there’s no need for additional IT staff or special training. And with affordable, allinclusive pricing, the Barracuda Firewall lets you budget with total confidence that there won’t be surprise costs down the road.
