First for a Reason

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series was the first network firewall approved for use on GCP. It provides network-based protection that is fully integrated with GCP.

The “shared responsibility” model of security for cloud platforms means that you are responsible for protecting sensitive data when you migrate existing workloads.

Protect Your Workloads Migrated to the Cloud

Most companies start out by migrating existing workloads from on-premises infrastructure to GCP. Web-accessible applications run much the same way in GCP as they did in an on-premises or hosted environment, but new security controls are needed to protect data in GCP.

With Barracuda’s solutions for GCP, you can use the same Reference Architecture for on-premises WAFs and firewalls to secure a web-facing application can be applied across multiple applications. This makes it much easier, safer, and more efficient to deploy many workloads in GCP.

Automate GCP Security with CloudGen WAF APIs

In the on-premises world, security is usually treated as a networking function. In the cloud, you can design security directly into your applications by using APIs and published integrations with orchestration tools to automatically deploy CloudGen WAFs when your applications are deployed.

Protection for the Cloud Generation

If you’re running internal workloads in public cloud environments, you require robust, reliable access controls. All too often, organizations make it too easy to access backend resources in public-cloud deployments, resulting in severe security gaps.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series offers a wide variety of client-to-site VPN options, making it easy for you to securely enable reliable access to resources via any device, regardless of where it is used. Enhanced VPN protocols and SD-WAN capabilities allow flexible branch-to-cloud traffic management, including multi-transport VPN and hybrid WAN.

Advanced VPN capabilities make it easy for you to:

  • Establish secure connections between offices, GCP projects, datacenters, and hybrid cloud deployments
  • Provide flexible VPN remote access from laptops, tablets, and smartphones
  • Place critical and confidential resources in public-cloud environments with confidence

With the Bring Your Own License (BYOL) model, you purchase your annual firewall license from Barracuda for the required level of throughput and then install it in GCP. Your firewalls are active 24x7 throughout the duration of the license. Multi-year discounts are available.

BYOL pricing is well suited to situations in which you require continuously available protection for a predictable, fixed operating cost.

Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) licenses charge you based on the time when your firewalls are active - unlike BYOL in which services are active 24x7. If your usage fluctuates, you can turn services on or off at certain times when they're not needed (such as non-work hours).

PAYG is especially useful for customers that scale dynamically to match peak workloads. There is no need to manually turn firewalls off or reconfigure them when they are turned back on. GCP will do this automatically. You will only be billed when you're active.
