By Digital News Asia December 23, 2016
- Offers access to centrally managed, application and user-aware advanced threat protection
- Developed for highly distributed networks
BARRACUDA Networks, Inc, a provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, announces that its NextGen Firewall is now available for customers using Google Cloud Platform and can be purchased from Barracuda via the BYOL model.
Barracuda NextGen Firewall was developed for highly distributed networks with the advanced security and management capabilities that are required for cloud and hybrid environments.
Barracuda NextGen Firewall – which is available directly on AWS Marketplace, Microsoft Azure, and now Google Cloud Platform – provides flexible remote access, application visibility, user awareness, and highly granular security policy management to customers looking to securely leverage cloud platforms.
Barracude in Malaysia regional manager Thiban Darmalingam said, “With the launch of our Barracuda NextGen Firewall for Google Cloud Platform, we are broadening access to our security innovations built for cloud environments.
“The cloud brings about many benefits to organisations looking to efficiently scale their workloads and applications, and Google is without a doubt a key driver in this trend.”
Cloud-ready connectivity and management for Google Cloud Platform
“Traditional next-generation firewalls are designed to be deployed at the gateway in backhauled network environments, which is not sufficient for today’s cloud and hybrid environments.
“Barracuda NextGen Firewall was designed for the cloud era, with features that enable direct access to cloud applications in dispersed networks where quality of service, network reliability, and secure connectivity are required at every location,” explains Thiban.
Barracuda NextGen Firewall combines the full security feature stack expected from a top of the line next-generation firewall with full SD-WAN capabilities for cloud access optimization at every location in an organisation’s network.
Barracuda’s fully integrated central management, which is scalable from a few dozen to thousands of remote locations, helps improve security, compliance, and network connectivity at every location without the need to backhaul traffic.
“Google Cloud Platform helps customers spend less time managing infrastructure, provisioning servers and configuring networks and more time focusing on their own core businesses,” said Google Strategic Technology Partners director Adam Massey.
