Bar­racuda Net­works ex­panded its next-gen­er­a­tion fire­wall prod­uct fam­ily with the ad­di­tion of the new Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall S-Se­ries, which helps cus­tomers en­force proper ac­cess priv­i­leges, secure and cen­trally man­age all com­mu­ni­ca­tions, and quickly roll out thou­sands of de­vices to un­trained staff in re­mote lo­ca­tions.

“The Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall S-Se­ries em­pow­ers cus­tomers to mas­sively scale thou­sands of con­nected de­vices with pow­er­ful tech­nol­ogy that is easy to use and af­ford­able. The Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall S-Se­ries launch fur­ther un­der­scores Bar­racuda’s aim to help cus­tomers op­ti­mize net­work traf­fic and bet­ter reg­u­late ap­pli­ca­tion us­age in highly dis­trib­uted and hy­brid en­vi­ron­ments,” said Thiban Dar­ma­lingam, Re­gional Man­ager of Bar­racuda in Malaysia.

The S-Se­ries in­cludes two new prod­ucts: the Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall Secure Con­nec­tor 1 (SC1) and the Bar­racuda Nex­tGen SAC. The for­mer is a small ap­pli­ance that in­cludes fire­walling, Wi-Fi, and full VPN con­nec­tiv­ity, while the other is a vir­tual gate­way ca­pa­ble of run­ning in Mi­crosoft Azure en­vi­ron­ments, or in pri­vate clouds to op­ti­mize net­work traf­fic flow and cen­trally ap­ply next-gen­er­a­tion se­cu­rity func­tion­al­ity to de­ployed SC1 ap­pli­ances.

The Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall S-Se­ries prom­ises greater flex­i­bil­ity to se­curely con­nect highly dis­trib­uted net­works such as ATM ma­chines, and in­cludes the same ad­vanced se­cu­rity func­tion­al­ity such as Ap­pli­ca­tion Con­trol, Anti-Virus, IPS, and URL fil­ter­ing well known with the Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall F- and Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall X-Se­ries prod­ucts.

Both the Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall Secure Con­nec­tor 1 (SC1) ap­pli­ance and the Bar­racuda Nex­tGen Fire­wall Secure Ac­cess Con­cen­tra­tor (SAC) vir­tual ap­pli­ance are avail­able now.
