Introducing the Barracuda NextGen Firewall S-Series

Barracuda has offered next generation firewall solutions for years. Weve made several advancements in these app, including new products built specifically for small and mid-sized organizations, or designed for SMEs that rely largely on cloud-based applications. Today we are announcing another advancement in our solutions: The Barracuda NextGen Firewall S-Series.
The Barracuda cheap document scanning is a elementary, secure, and scalable decision that provides full next generation features to endpoints dispersed through the Internet of Things (IoT). ATMs, kiosks, scaners and even garbage cans are connected, and more appliances are on the way. Gartner predicts that the IoT will reach 20 billion by the year 2020. Thats a lot of devices talking to each other via the Internet, and each one is potentially a host for a botnet, or an entry point for malware.
The Barracuda NextGen Firewall S-Series makes it simple to protect IoT endpoints. It starts with the Barracuda NextGen Firewall Secure Connector 1 (SC1) appliance, which includes firewalling, Wi-Fi, and full VPN connectivity. The SC1 is not a full standalone firewall; it is a small remote connectivity device that is designed to work as part of a system that provides full next generation firewall protection to each endpoint.
The SC1 uses VPN connectivity to securely forward traffic from the endpoint back to a physical or virtual datacenter where advanced security inspection can be done by a corporate firewall. In order to keep the traffic of potentially thousands of SC1 appliances from coming into the corporate network, the SC1 appliances connect directly to a NextGen Secure Access Connector (SAC), rather than the corporate firewall.
The SAC is a virtual deployed gateway that is designed specifically to accept the encrypted traffic from the SC1 appliances. It forwards the management traffic on to the Barracuda NG Control Center, and forwards other traffic on to the primary corporate firewall as needed. The SAC also applies advanced security functions like Application Control, Anti-Virus, IPS, and URL filtering. See our TechLibrary here for more information.
Here are some of the features weve included in the S-Series to keep deployment simple:
The SCA Editor: A new template based editor that allows managers to create templates at various organizational levels. When a template is updated, all SC1 appliances linked to that template are automatically updated within seconds.
Central Management: Administrators avoid complex routing diagrams by using the Automated Network Setup capability. Admins define a large network, partition it into subnets, and the subnets are assigned to the SC1 appliances.
No specialized staff required: The SC1 appliances can be shipped directly to the remote location, with no particularized IT staff required. The administrator can create a configuration file using the Barracuda NextGen Control Center, and send that file to the person responsible for installing the SC1. That person then copies the file to the SC1 and reboots the appliance.
These features keep deployment and management simple, and reduce the number of administrators needed to manage IoT endpoint security.
