Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, announces it has expanded its next-generation firewall product family with the addition of the new Barracuda NextGen Firewall S-Series which will enable customers to securely connect thousands of machine endpoints, such as ATM machines or other remote devices, by enabling new ‘Internet of Things’ applications and deployments.
“Next-generation firewall appliances typically deployed in smaller networks can be very complex and expensive for organizations with hundreds or even thousands of remote kiosks, such as banks with ATMs and energy providers with wind power stations,” he adds.
It provides organisations with greater flexibility to securely connect highly distributed networks, 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.
The two new products in the S-Series:
- Barracuda NextGen Firewall Secure Connector 1 (SC1) which is a small appliance that includes firewalling, Wi-Fi, and full VPN connectivity.
- The Barracuda NextGen SAC 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.
