The Barracuda NextGen Firewall X-Series uses application visibility and user-identity awareness to enable enforcement of granular access policies. Define policies based on any combination of application, user or group ID, time, and other criteria. Policies can even respond to specific application behaviors or features – for example, allowing all employees to use Skype voice, but allowing only executives to use Skype video, except after business hours.
With the Barracuda NextGen Firewall X-Series, the content security functionality is not simply bolted on top of the network stack, it’s deeply integrated into the firewall engine. As an option, antivirus and web filtering may even be offloaded to the Barracuda Web Security Service cloud, freeing further CPU cycles for network scalability. With the optionally available Advanced Threat Detection the X-Series also offers protection against advanced malware and zero day exploits that routinely bypass traditional signature-based IPS and antivirus engines.
Affordable and Easy to Use
The Barracuda NextGen Firewall X-Series is the first next-generation firewall to combine application control, user awareness, network firewall, and content security with the elasticity of the cloud. Unmatched ease of use means there’s no need for additional IT staff or special training, and with the Barracuda NextGen Firewall X affordable, all-inclusive pricing, you can rest assured that there won’t be any surprise costs down the road.
