The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is purpose-built to combine award winning next-generation network security and full SD-WAN connectivity in one simple to deploy and operate solution. Beyond its powerful network firewall, IPS, and VPN technologies, the CloudGen Firewall integrates an extensive set of next generation firewall technologies including application control for thousands of applications, traffic flow optimization, web filtering, antivirus, advanced threat detection and sandboxing as well as network access control enforcement.
Fully integrated SD-WAN functionality makes use of dozens of physical uplinks, including Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute. This ensures connectivity to Office365 and applications hosted in Azure is never interrupted and always operating at peak performance. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall always choses the best available uplink depending on application needs and actual uplink performance. Multiple uplinks can be shared to optimize bandwidth and built-in traffic optimization techniques replace superfluous dedicated WAN optimization and SD-WAN only devices.
Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is also the best choice for connectivity with Azure Virtual WAN. Tight integration into the automated management concept and zero touch deployment for unlimited remote locations enables connecting any number of branches to the cloud and to each other with throughput and scalability provided by the Microsoft Global Network.
