Protecting your Digital Assets in Microsoft Azure with the Barracuda NextGen Control CenterProtecting your Digital Assets in Microsoft Azure with the Barracuda NextGen Control Center

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. The Barracuda NextGen Control Center ensures highly secure, encrypted traffic within Microsoft Azure, provides secure remote and site-tosite access, and centralized management.

The Barracuda NextGen Control Center fills the functional gaps between cloud infrastructure security and a defense-in-depth strategy by providing protection where the application and data reside, rather than solely where the connection terminates.

Because of the isolation between VMs, tenants, and virtual networks, the Barracuda NextGen Control Center operates just as if it were a physical device bridging connections between application servers in a network DMZ and your ISP's router.

Since no traffic is allowed from the Microsoft Azure Fabric, host OS, or hypervisor to a tenant's virtual network or VMs, the NextGen Control Center can intercept all Layer 2 through 7 traffic and apply policy-based controls, authentication, filtering, and other capabilities. And as with its physical counterpart, the same traffic management and bandwidth optimizations can be used to make the environment more efficient, thereby using fewer billable cloud resources.

Beyond its powerful network firewall, high availability, and VPN technologies, the Barracuda NextGen Control Center integrates a comprehensive set of next-generation firewall technologies, including Application Control, IPS, anti-malware, network access control enforcement, and comprehensive user awareness. The Barracuda NextGen Control Center is fully compatible with Microsoft Azure for establishing site-to-site and/or client-to-site connections to its cloud services, and creating a virtual DMZ in Azure to implement an additional high-security layer.

The Barracuda NextGen Control Center merges the worlds of on-premises data center network protection with cloud IT security needs, helping you close the gaps between native Microsoft Azure capabilities and traditional hardware-based application firewalls.

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.
