Barracuda Firewall

Overview

Powerful Next Generation Capabilities

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. Policies can even respond to specific application behaviors or features - for example, allow all employees to use Skype voice, but allow only executives to use Skype video, except after business hours.

Firewall Capabilities:

  • Stateful packet forwarding
  • Intrusion Prevention (IPS)
  • Application enforcement (incl subtypes)
  • DOS / DDOS denial of service protection
  • NAT (src,dst,nets), NAPT, PAT
  • Object-oriented rule sets
  • Dynamic rules / timer triggers
  • User/group based firewall rules
  • ARP security
  • Bridging
  • Virtual rule test environment

Leveraging Cloud Resources

By offloading processor-intensive content filtering and malware protection to the cloud, the Barracuda Firewall ensures that on-premise resources are fully available to deliver next-generation firewall capabilities without impacting throughput. And with effectively unlimited resources available, scaling to meet growing needs is easy and transparent.

Secure VPN Capabilities

The Barracuda Firewall’s built-in VPN capabilities enable secure remote access for users. In addition, they support business continuity by securing site-to-site connectivity and ensuring reliable connections to business critical cloud-based applications and resources.

Simple, Centralized Management

Barracuda Cloud Control is a single-point management portal that sets a new standard for combining power and versatility with ease of use and intuitive interface. It allows administrators to control, configure, and update multiple Barracuda Firewalls along with many other Barracuda Networks solutions. It provides clear, real-time network visibility and has versatile reporting capabilities.

Dynamic Traffic Prioritization

The Barracuda Firewall eliminates the need for costly high-capacity backup links by aggregating disparate links such as MPLS, T1, DSL, cable, and 3G. It balances and shapes traffic among links according to policies based on applications, traffic loads, and link status. For example, VoIP and ERP traffic can be reserved for fast MPLS lines, while email is shunted to slower T1 links. Link failover is instantaneous, and automatically triggers the application of new, predefined prioritization policies.

Affordable, Predictable Costs

All-inclusive pricing means that organizations can plan their budgets with confidence that there will be no hidden or surprise costs down the line. Cloud-based content filtering makes scaling for growth simple and affordable. Ease of use minimizes training and staffing costs, while traffic intelligence extends the capacity of existing infrastructure.
