MACHINE ENDPOINT FIREWALL
Barracuda NextGen Firewall S-Series Enables Customers to Securely Connect Thousands of Machine Endpoints
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.
