About Secure Connector

The ultra-compact Barracuda Secure Connector appliance reliably connects remote devices via multiple uplinks for uninterrupted operation. This makes it easy to securely and easily connect industrial internet of things (IIoT) devices and micro-networks to a corporate data center or public cloud. With the Barracuda solution, thousands of Secure Connector appliances securely connect to a Barracuda CloudGen Firewall or the CloudGen WAN service in Microsoft Azure, where the security policy  including application control, SCADA protocol detection, virus scanning and IPS, and  even advanced threat protection is enforced.

At the same time each Secure Connector provides easy-to-deploy edge computing capabilities especially for industrial use cases. By combining connectivity, security, and edge compute capabilities, the Barracuda solution solves the main challenges of today’s industrial IoT projects. Barracuda customers have already successfully deployed thousands of Secure Connectors to enable predictive maintenance, supervision of building management systems, power grid monitoring, device consolidation, and even prefiltering of log data to avoid cloud ingress cost, just to name a few.

Firewall Control Center manages the configuration of all Secure Connectors, licenses and updates centrally, and provides scalability without security headaches.
