The New Barracuda Security Suite Is Now Shipping From Wick Hill

Now available from Wick Hill is the Barracuda Security Suite, which allows customers to purchase and deploy proven protection across three common threat vectors - email, web browsing, and network perimeters - and independently scale these functions with a purpose-built virtualized platform.

This latest solution is a part of Barracuda's Total Threat Protection initiative, which is aimed at providing powerful, robust protection across multiple threat vectors with simplified management. The Barracuda Security Suite integrates next-generation network and content security - including individual virtual instances of the award-winning Barracuda Firewall, Barracuda Web Filter and Barracuda Spam Firewall - on a single appliance.

Ian Kipatrick, chairman of Wick Hill Group, commented: "Many early generation UTMs have not been able to scale to defend against today's threat landscape, neither in capacity nor in throughput. The Barracuda Security suite delivers a market-leading solution for users looking to upgrade to a cost-effective, high-performance, high- security solution. We have seen considerable interest in the Security Suite from our channel partners."

Barracuda Security Suite is designed for businesses considering the replacement of their Unified Threat Management (UTM) systems, which often suffer performance degradation when all features are running simultaneously. The Barracuda Security Suite is optimised to run on a purpose-built network virtualization hypervisor. Each of the virtual instances can operate at near-wire speeds to appliance components and feature resource partitioning to help ensure performance isolation and speed.

Award-Winning Advanced Security

The Barracuda Security Suite integrates virtual instances of Barracuda's award-winning next-generation firewall and content security technologies and includes:

  • Barracuda Firewall: Incorporates next-generation firewall capabilities - based on application visibility and user-identity awareness. Key features also include coordinated WAN optimization, centralized management and reporting.
  • Barracuda Web Filter: Enables connected businesses to benefit from new technologies and online tools to improve productivity, wasted bandwidth, and data loss. Highly granular visibility allows administrators to create effective content and access policies.
  • Barracuda Spam Firewall: Provides comprehensive email security that includes spam and virus blocking, data protection, DoS prevention, email continuity, encryption, and policy management.
Barracuda Total Threat Protection

The Barracuda Total Threat Protection initiative is aimed at providing powerful, integrated security protection across multiple threat vectors at an affordable cost. Barracuda Total Threat Protection is designed to protect multiple threat vectors including email, web applications, remote access, web browsing by network users, mobile Internet access, and the network perimeter itself. It includes the combination of award-winning security solutions, a common management interface, a single point of support, and affordability.

Barracuda Security Suite is designed for midsized organizations looking for next-generation security functionality in a powerful, affordable and easy-to-use platform.
