The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall for Azure fills the functional gaps between cloud infrastructure security and a defense-in-depth strategy by providing protection where the application and data reside, rather than solely where the connection terminates. Because of the isolation between VMs, tenants, and virtual networks, the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall operates just as if it were a physical device bridging connections between application servers in a network DMZ and your ISP’s router.
Beyond its powerful network firewall, high availability, and VPN technologies, the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall integrates a comprehensive set of next-generation firewall technologies, including Application Control, IPS, anti-malware, network access control enforcement, and comprehensive user awareness. The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is fully compatible with Microsoft Azure for establishing site-to-site and/or client-to-site connections to its cloud services, and creating a virtual DMZ in Azure to implement an additional high-security layer.
The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall for Azure meets enterprise requirements of massive scalability, efficient configuration and lifecycle management across dispersed networks, and performance guarantees for business-critical applications.
NOTE: Starting 8.0.x release, Barracuda supports Accelerated Networking for Barracuda CloudGen Firewall for Azure
