If you're planning to refresh your Barracuda NextGen Firewall or Barracuda Web Application Firewall (WAF), then take advantage of our Cloud Ready initiative. This new program lowers the barriers to cloud migration by providing qualifying customers with a 90-day license that lets them test their firewall in the public cloud. You can get more information on our Cloud Ready program here.
Barracuda NextGen Firewall
There's never been a better time to refresh or migrate to a Barracuda NextGen Firewall. The NextGen Firewall is purpose-built for the modern, distributed network. The combination of local servers, remote devices, and cloud-hosted applications can pose security challenges. The NextGen Firewall allows IT to protect hybrid networks like this while regulating application usage and prioritizing network traffic appropriately.
Here's how the Barracuda NextGen Firewall can help you:
- Ransomware and APT defense: Our NextGen Firewall solutions protect you from attack by performing Advanced Threat Detection (ATD) and sandboxing in the Barracuda ATD Cloud. With this in place, these threats are processed out before they ever make it to your network.
- Security for intelligent perimeters: Traditional next-generation firewalls are designed to be deployed at a gateway in a backhauled network environment. Barracuda NextGen Firewalls are designed to enable direct access to cloud applications in dispersed networks where QoS, network reliability, and secure connectivity are required at every location.
- Increase WAN performance and reliability: Load balancing and failover capabilities allow you to configure application-based uplink selections, optimize network traffic, and more. Barracuda NextGen Firewalls also allow administrators to create high-performance VPN connections on demand and enable clientless secure remote access. Remote access applications are available for mobile devices using iOS or Android.
- Monitor and manage user traffic: Barracuda NextGen Firewalls inspect network traffic by leveraging advanced fingerprint and deep SSL Inspection to identify applications and content. Based on this data, administrators can set granular policies for specific application features, users, and user groups.
Get your new NextGen Firewall
Qualifying customers who act now can get their Barracuda NextGen Firewall for free through the Hardware Refresh Program. You can order refresh hardware units through your authorized Barracuda Networks Reseller Partner or, in some cases, directly from us. Refreshing your hardware will automatically allow you to license the same solution offered by both AWS and Microsoft Azure for up to 90 days at no additional cost. You have 120 days from the date or your hardware refresh to activate your free licenses for the 90 day trial period.
