Ransomware, advanced persistent threats, targeted attacks, and zero-day threats, require progressively sophisticated defense techniques that balance accurate threat detection with fast response times. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall offers a comprehensive set of next-generation firewall technologies to ensure real-time network protection against a broad range of network threats, vulnerabilities, and exploits, including SQL injections, cross-site scripting, denial of service attacks, trojans, viruses, worms, spyware, and many more.
“Organizations need protection that goes beyond next-generation firewalls to ensure they are protected against a broad range of network threats that can bypass traditional firewall security,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP of Engineering for Data Protection, Network and Application Security at Barracuda. “I believe this report helps customers sift through the noise to find the right vendor that will match their evolving needs.”
According to a Barracuda customer case study, “What we know—and what we have seen—is that Barracuda is on the right track to help companies with flexible IT environments and leveraging the cloud,” said Pascal Wenders ICT Team Leader of Aevitae.
