Bar­racuda’s Next-Gen­er­a­tion Fire­wall to Sup­port Mi­crosoft Prod­ucts

HWM (Malaysia) - - SMB -

Bar­racuda Net­works an­nounced that its Next-Gen­er­a­tion Fire­walls (NGFWs) will be equipped to sup­port Mi­crosoft prod­ucts with Win­dows Re­mote Desk­top Ser­vices, vir­tu­al­iza­tion and pub­lic Cloud.

Thiban Dar­ma­lingam, Re­gional Man­ager for Bar­racuda in Malaysia said that less than 20 per­cent of In­ter­net con­nec­tions to­day are se­cured by the more se­cure and ad­vanced next-gen­er­a­tion fire­walls. This is ac­cord­ing to the re­cent Gart­ner Magic Quad­rant for En­ter­prise Net­work Fire­walls re­port.

“With the new up­dates, Bar­racuda NG Fire­wall will help cus­tomers swiftly and safely tran­si­tion to newer topolo­gies pro­posed in the Mi­crosoft ecosys­tem. The lat­est re­lease ex­pands our in­te­gra­tion with Mi­crosoft Hy­per-V vir­tu­al­iza­tion and Mi­crosoft Azure pub­lic cloud in­fra­struc­ture en­abling our cus­tomers to fur­ther cap­i­tal­ize on their Mi­crosoft in­vest­ments,” said Thiban.

The lat­est ver­sion of the Bar­racuda NGFW, which was re­cently un­veiled at the Gart­ner Se­cu­rity & Risk Man­age­ment Sum­mit in Na­tional Har­bor, MD in the U.S. fea­tures full user aware­ness for Win­dows Re­mote Desk­top Ser­vices, even when mul­ti­ple users on a Re­mote Desk­top Server are be­hind a sin­gle IP ad­dress; sup­ports Hy­per-V vir­tu­al­iza­tion that can be de­ployed on Mi­crosoft Hy­per-V servers in ad­di­tion to VMware; and has ap­pli­ca­tion­based dy­namic uplink se­lec­tion.

It will also be ca­pa­ble of gen­er­at­ing new ap­pli­ca­tion us­age and risk re­ports that help ad­min­is­tra­tors en­force In­ter­net us­age poli­cies and of­fers rec­om­men­da­tions for re­defin­ing poli­cies based on risk, and have higher per­for­mance an­tivirus scan­ning that uti­lizes a sin­gle-pass, an­tivirus scan­ning ar­chi­tec­ture that in­spects both un­en­crypted and SSLen­crypted traf­fic.

The Bar­racuda NG Fire­wall Vx is a vir­tual ap­pli­ance that runs on both VMware and Hy­per-V en­vi­ron­ments, while the li­cense for Bar­racuda NG Fire­wall in Mi­crosoft Azure can be pur­chased on an an­nual ba­sis.
