Barracuda Networks, Inc. announces an expanded public cloud functionality for the Barracuda Web Application Firewall and Barracuda NextGen Firewall. It now allows for utility-based consumption and automated security controls for DevSecOps workflows, giving customers an east migration path to public cloud.
The new Barracuda Cloud Generation Firewalls give customers flexibility to cost-effectively deploy security at critical points, be it in the cloud, in hybrid or multi-cloud environments and throughout the development lifecycle. Some of the new capabilities include:
- Usage-based billing via AWS Marketplace Metering Service Billing
By joining the Barracuda Web Application Firewall, the AWS Marketplace Metering Service Billing ensures that all evaluation, pricing and provisioning is done entirely within the AWS Marketplace. Customers are able to build CI/CD pipelines that include their ISV partner solutions and charges are based on the total bandwidth consumed.
- DevSecOps with Puppet
This integration enables cloud security and operations teams to codify their firewall policies so they can be tested and secured as part of the overall application delivery process. The Puppet integration automatically remediates unauthorised changes and enables security teams to quickly identify known vulnerabilities.
Furthermore, the Barracuda Cloud Generation Firewalls are engineered to provide network and application security for cloud-only and hybrid-cloud environments. These solutions provide cloud-specific features which includes metered billing, API support for DevSecOps teams, fully meshed connectivity and scalability to help organisations align security with their cloud deployments.
Organisations looking for scalability and automation benefits of the public cloud should demand cloud generation firewall functionality, including:
- Well-architected for the public cloud
To integrate directly with public cloud fabric, provide integrations for DevOps tools and automation workflows as well as centrally manage across hybrid environments.
- Support for cloud-specific use cases
Supports unique requirements of the cloud, including horizontal scalability, distributed policy sets, fully meshed connectivity and north-south traffic management. Customers will be able to leverage the benefits of cloud automation around deployment, autoscaling, high-availability, networking and monitoring.
