The Barracuda F280C next-gen firewall looks like the perfect choice for medium businesses that require tough network security.
Unlike traditional firewalls, CloudGen firewalls are designed specifically to support public cloud deployment. They protect users, applications and data—regardless of your infrastructure’s layout.
The Barracuda F280C uses priority level security, but also gets high marks for value, ease of deployment / management, advanced threat detection, and support. With a CloudGen firewall, you can manage policies from a single device. Additionally, you can get live monitoring on what is happening with the devices. CloudGen firewalls also reduce the amount of spam that can pass through the network.
Barracuda F280C Features
There’s a bunch. Base functions of the F280C include firewall, application control, user awareness, intrusion prevention service, and antivirus (Web, mail and FTP in proxy mode, as well as single-pass flow mode). Not only that, there’s gateway-based URL filter (in proxy mode, as well as single-pass flow mode), SSL interception / inspection, Web proxy with cache, unlimited site-to-site virtual private network (VPN), unlimited client-to-site VPN, and a spam filter.
Their proprietary TINA VPN tunnels are impressive for interconnecting multiple sites. Once setup they are reliable and robust. And they feature encrypted backups.
The Barracuda F280C runs at 1.8 Gbps VPN Throughput, 2 Gbps IPS Throughput, and 1.6 Gbps NGFW Throughput. It has a capacity of 300,00 Concurrent Sessions.
Cloud-management offers greater agility and flexibility. However, it also requires more automation. The CloudGen Firewall F-Series offers fully-automated protection across multiple cloud deployments.
The CloudGen family is perfect for any size organization. It helps remote workers connect seamlessly with the VPN product. CloudGen provides the throughput and the security to allow connectivity at pretty much any scale.
