Amazon Web ServicesOverview:

Security-conscious companies and managed security providers are confronted with an increasing number of gateways in their networks. Managing hundreds or thousands of systems can require a costly, timeintensive process by qualified staff. The Barracuda NextGen Control Center can significantly decrease administrative overhead.

Moving your IT Infrastructure to the Cloud? Running on Amazon Web Services?

Barracuda Networks is your partner for various kinds of deployments in Amazon Web Services. We understand your IT needs and provide best-of-breed solutions for firewalling, load balancing, web application security, and email security in the public cloud.

Barracuda Networks and Amazon Web Services

Today, many organizations are looking to the cloud to take advantage of the economic gains and operational efficiencies inherent to non-hardware-based solutions. While migrating to the cloud means companies need to adjust to new security threats, the ability to scale according to business needs means that AWS offers a powerful value proposition. The pay-as-you go model Amazon uses enables businesses of all sizes to access just the AWS services they need, and no more.

In the cloud, companies need security that can compensate for a broader attack surface and a new array of threat vectors. As Amazon seeks to provide more options for hybrid cloud and pay-as-you-go subscriptions, Barracuda’s security services have moved hand-in-hand with Amazon’s values. Not only is Barracuda committed to providing total threat protection to AWS customers, but we’re taking steps to emulate Amazon’s methodologies within our product offerings. Barracuda and Amazon work well together because we have the same end user in mind: A person Amazon calls the “whole stack professional” and Barracuda describes as a “mid-market IT professional who wears a lot of hats.”

Move Your Physical Data Center to the Cloud with Amazon Web Services

Get Secure Connectivity with Visibility and Control by using the industry's most advanced next-generation firewall solution for deployments in Amazon Web Services. The Barracuda NextGen Control Center ensures highly secure, encrypted traffic from, to, and within AWS, provides secure remote and site-to-site access, and centralized management.

The growth in cloud computing capabilities and services has driven more data into places where traditional IT security measures cannot reach - into data centers not owned by your corporate IT group. Securing applications and data in AWS is far easier with tools that are dedicated to the task. Deploying the Barracuda NextGen Control Center in the cloud is very similar to running local network firewalls, and provides the advantages of common policy enforcement and distributed security management in a hybrid-IT environment. It provides next generation firewalling and secure remote access to AWS. It enables organizations to deploy sophisticated multi-zone network architecture in the cloud, just like their on-premises networks. By using the proprietary high-performance VPN protocol extension TINA (Transport Independent Network Architecture), the Barracuda NextGen Control Center deployment enables secure high speed site-to-site and client-to-site connectivity between on-premises networks and mobile-user devices. The Barracuda NextGen Control Center adds a powerful and intuitive centralized management portal that makes it extremely simple to deploy, configure, update, and manage multiple units from a single location, while also providing comprehensive, real-time network visibility and reporting.

Regaining Control of User Activity

Cost Efficiency

The Barracuda NextGen Control Center gives full control over system administration costs.

Lifecycle costs: Central update management drastically lowers the time spent deploying patches. Even Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls, with different software versions can be centrally managed at the same time.
Deployment costs: Using the Barracuda NextGen Control Center, rollouts with hundreds of devices can be completed within a few weeks instead of months.
Operating costs: The Barracuda NG Control Center helps to significantly reduce the cost associated with security management while providing extra functionality both centrally and locally at the managed gateways.

Central Management

Security Management with Ease

Firewall rulesets and other security policies, as well as, software patches and version upgrades are centrally controlled from within the management console. Deployment can be scheduled and applied to all managed devices. Highly customizable administrative roles allow delegation of administrative capabilities for specific departments or locations. Administrators are kept informed at all times on the status of remote gateways and can implement centrally defined security rules at every location. Furthermore, the integrated revision control system provides easy audits and cuts overhead.

Monitor WAN activity in real time with Barracuda NG Earth
Barracuda Earth - the graphical realtime 3D network monitoring utility of the Barracuda NextGen Control Center, provides a status overview of all VPN site-to-site tunnels.


The Barracuda NextGen Control Center can run as a virtual appliance in the Amazon cloud as a gateway device for Amazon EC2 instances in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
