We’re proud to share the news that Barracuda has been recognized as a Contender in “The Forrester Wave TM: Enterprise Firewalls, Q3 2020.”
Forrester’s detailed analysis of products and services says enterprise firewall customers should look for providers that:
- Support the Zero Trust edge model
- Extend management into the cloud
- Feature a strong endpoint or tight integration with an endpoint leader
Barracuda CloudGen Firewall is a family of physical, virtual, and cloud-based appliances that protect and enhance dispersed network infrastructures. Scalable centralized management and an advanced security analytics platform help reduce administrative overhead while defining and enforcing granular policies across the entire WAN.Take a look at what Forrester Research is saying about the latest firewall technology Click To Tweet
Executing on key technology trends
In the Forrester report, Barracuda was cited specifically for being one of the first firewall vendors “to spot the significance of SD-WAN and cloud integration….” Barracuda CloudGen Firewall combines a complete set of SD-WAN capabilities with advanced, multi-layered security technologies in a single unit.
The report also stated that Barracuda is heavily invested in the Microsoft ecosystem, saying: “Barracuda is the only firewall vendor building a DIY security-stack-in-the-public cloud, which is bold.” 1
We feel this reflects the strong focus we’ve had on providing cloud-enabled and cloud-delivered solutions that fit the different ways resellers and customer are looking to deploy network security. It also reinforces, in our opinion, the advances we’ve made by working closely with the Microsoft team to develop solutions built natively in Azure.
As more companies move their networks to the public cloud, cybercriminals continue to look for ways to take advantage. At Barracuda, it is our goal to make it easier for customers to embrace the public cloud securely.
