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 virtualisation 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 SecurityThe 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.
