barracuda-ng-firewallsBarracuda Networks, provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, has announced that the Barracuda NG Firewall is now available in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. The Barracuda NG Firewall for AWS allows customers to protect and remotely access their server infrastructures deployed in the AWS cloud.

The Barracuda NG Firewall provides VPN and security-enhanced remote network access between customer networks and the AWS cloud platform.

Key features of the solution include:

Granular controlĀ over applications – allowing administrators to define rules for forwarding data traffic using the best respective transmission channels based on type of application, user, content, time of day, and geographical location. The Barracuda NG Firewall allows organizations to prioritize traffic by limiting or restricting access to non-business-related applications and network traffic, even when encrypted.

Enhanced network security – with the Barracuda NG Firewall Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDS/IPS), providing complete and comprehensive real-time network protection against a broad range of network threats, vulnerabilities, exploits, and exposures in operating systems, applications, and databases preventing network attacks such as SQL injections and arbitrary code executions.

Advanced site-to-site and client-to-site VPN capabilities – using both SSL and IPsec protocols to ensure remote users can easily and securely access network resources without complex client configuration and management.
