Barracuda Extends Support for Microsoft

Press release - Kuala Lumpur, Jun 30, 2014:

Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, announces that their Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) will be equipped with new capabilities to support Microsoft products in the areas of Windows Remote Desktop Services, virtualization and public Cloud.

Thiban Darmalingam, the Regional Manager for Barracuda in Malaysia says, “It is actually pretty scary that less than 20 per cent of Internet connections today are secured by NG Firewalls - according to the recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls report.”

“In fact by the end of 2014, this number will increase to 35 per cent of the installed base, with 70 per cent of new enterprise edge purchases being NGFWs. Also, Gartner also reported that through 2018, more than 75 percent of enterprises will continue to seek network security from a different vendor than their network infrastructure.”

“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,” he further adds.
