Integrated content security
Barracuda NG Firewall integrates a comprehensive set of next generation firewall technologies, including intrusion prevention and Layer 7 application profiling.
Network access control
Barracuda NG Firewalls include licenses for an unlimited number of IPSec site-to-site connections and IPSec clients through the Barracuda NG VPN Client. The Barracuda NG Firewall SSL VPN and NAC adds a customizable and easy-to-use Web portal-based SSL VPN as well as sophisticated network access control (NAC) functionality.
Optimization of intelligent traffic flow across the WAN
The Barracuda NG Firewall provides application-aware traffic management and prioritization across the WAN, featuring adaptive routing based on network traffic conditions and link status. In addition, through Barracuda NG control center, administrators can efficiently monitor VPN tunnels and firewall status.
Industry leading centralized management capabilities
To centralize management across many different firewalls and remote access users, the Barracuda NG control center enables administrators to configure security and network access policies, control firmware update revisions, and manage user settings. Template-based configuration and globally available security objects enable efficient configuration across thousands of locations.
Roles-based administration and multi-tenancy
The Barracuda NG control center enable administration of an unlimited number of Barracuda NG Firewall platforms.
Quick troubleshooting for network administrators
All Barracuda NG control center and Barracuda NG Firewall appliances come with extensive network connectivity troubleshooting and visualization tools. Even for large networks it typically only takes a few mouse clicks to analyze and remediate a problem in the central audit log or access cache screen.
The Barracuda NG Firewall integrates stateful packet filtering and Layer 7 application profiling. The stateful packet filtering firewall ensures that the network and the system itself is protected against classic TCP Layer 2 to Layer 4 attacks.
Layer 7 application profiling
Next generation firewalls utilizing Layer 7 application profiling can identify and enforce policy on more sophisticated applications, which may hide their traffic inside otherwise "safe" port/protocols such as HTTP. Skype and peer-to-peer (P2P) applications are particularly notorious for requiring Layer 7 application profiling for policy enforcement.
The Barracuda NG Firewall includes a client-to-site as well as site-to-site virtual private network (VPN) service to allow safe, encrypted communication over the Internet. Every Barracuda NG Firewall model includes an unlimited number of VPN client licenses.
Transparent TCP proxy
The Barracuda NG Firewall includes a TCP proxy to effectively open TCP packets, inspect and rebuild TCP network traffic.
NAT/PAT/IP masqueradingIn The Box
The Barracuda NG Firewall includes the ability to modify network address information in datagram (IP) packet headers for the purpose of remapping a given address space into another. This feature is most often used to hide internal IP addresses from the outside network.
