With OMS support for the Barracuda Web Application Firewall (WAF) and the Barracuda NextGen Firewall (NGF), customers can now stream log data from their firewall to Microsoft OMS in Azure for further analysis. By adding Log Analytics service in the OMS Workspace, you can connect your firewalls to the Workplace and enable syslog streaming. Profiles are defined to specify the log file types to be transferred/streamed. By configuring Azure OMS as the log stream destination, all selected log files are then streamed to Azure OMS, where they can be stored, analyzed, and processed.Customers can now stream log data from Barracuda Web Application Firewall and Barracuda NextGen Firewall to OMS in AzureClick To Tweet
Azure Security Center aims to prevent, detect, and respond to threats to your resources in Azure. Based on Azure resource group setup, the Azure Security Center recommends ways for you to secure your VMs and workloads. The configuration of the firewall VM is tailored to secure incoming traffic for specific services using a Dst NAT access rule with a dynamic NAT connection method. If you also want to route outgoing traffic over the firewall, you must enable IP forwarding and add an Azure route table with UDR routes. Barracuda NextGen Firewalls deployed through the Security Center are automatically configured to send the status information and threat logs to the Azure Security Center including incident reports for all threat Logs.
As we see OMS and ASC will eventually be combined into one integrated offering in Azure, how Barracuda firewalls work in the unified environment should stay consistent. The customer can have a clear view of infrastructure workloads with insights and intelligence, and enhance security through automated provisioning, all from a single pane of glass.
