Deploy SD-WAN and advanced security in a single integrated solution.

Digital transformation and the adoption of public cloud platforms and SaaS applications like Office 365 are changing the role of enterprise firewalls. To help ensure high connectivity and bandwidth while controlling bandwidth costs, next-generation firewalls must take on new operational tasks. They must ensure uninterrupted network availability and robust access to cloud-hosted applications, while also simplifying the management of dispersed network infrastructures. Secure SD-WAN functionality integrated in Barracuda CloudGen Firewall lets you ensure that there is always enough bandwidth for business-critical applications, by automatically making dynamic, on-the-fly adjustments to QoS and application usage policies depending on real-time bandwidth and latency measurements.

Ensure always-on connectivity between sites and to the cloud.

Making networks perform optimally and support productivity can be challenging in the face of increasing SaaS adoption (Office 365, Salesforce, etc.) and the ongoing shift of IT workloads to cloud services. Backhauling traffic is becoming prohibitively complex and expensive. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall sets up and manages secure direct internet breakouts for all sites, optimizing connectivity to cloud workloads and SaaS applications.

Boost performance with Barracuda’s TINA protocol.

Barracuda has created several powerful extensions to standard IPsec tunnel management. This core of the Barracuda Firewall VPN Engine is called TINA (Transport Independent Network Architecture). The TINA protocol enables high-speed VPN connections, which improves VPN connectivity substantially. TINA and secure SD-WAN significantly increase WAN network reliability and performance by using and aggregating up to 24 active, load-sharing connections of any type.

Cut costs while gaining flexibility.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall lets you easily optimize site-to-site connectivity and, at the same time, reduce network bandwidth cost and IT overhead. When CloudGen Firewall units are deployed in multiple locations, they can create a fault-tolerant, high-performance WAN network utlizing only low-cost broadband lines. This optimizes your costs by combining multiple carriers/ISPs to get the required bandwidth and allowing for the reduction or elimination of expensive leased MPLS lines.
