Google Cloud PartnerNetwork Security on Google Cloud

Google Cloud Platform was built from the ground up for optimal security and ease of use, to offer you a public-cloud infrastructure that truly meets your needs. But, just as with other cloud platforms, the “shared responsibility” security model means that you will require an additional layer of security when deploying sensitive workloads.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series is the first network firewall available on Google Cloud Platform. It fits seamlessly within the Google security model, so you can easily secure your network using an advanced, full-featured firewall solution.

The First Network Firewall on GCP

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series provides network-based protection that is fully integrated with the Google Cloud Platform. The “shared responsibility” model of security for cloud platforms means that you are responsible for protecting sensitive data when you migrate existing workloads. That’s why, even though Google Cloud was built from the ground up for security, you should still add an additional firewall to protect your sensitive data.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series provides:

  • Full application visibility and user awareness
  • IPS, URL filtering, antivirus, and Advanced Threat Protection
  • Outstanding traffic visibility tools
  • Flexible client-based and clientless VPN options for secure access to cloud resources
  • Hybrid office-to-cloud connectivity using built-in SD-WAN capabilities

Protection for the Cloud Era

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series is deployed as a network gateway. Sitting between your network and the internet, it inspects all inbound and outbound traffic for malware and any other content prohibited by policy. Inbound traffic that passes inspection is sent on to the intended application or workload. Outbound traffic receives the same scrutiny, in order to prevent data loss and block advanced threats that may originate within your organization.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series makes it easy for you to:

  • Enforce granular application- and user-aware security policies
  • Block known and unknown malware with Advanced Threat Protection
  • Prevent network intrusion with built-in IPS
  • Exceptional traffic monitoring and troubleshooting tools

Protection for the Cloud Era

Secure, Anytime Access

If you're running internal workloads in public cloud environments, you require robust, reliable access controls. All too often, organizations make it too easy to access backend resources in public-cloud deployments, resulting in severe security gaps.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series offers a wide variety of client-to-site VPN options, making it easy for you to securely enable reliable access to resources via any device, regardless of where it is used. Enhanced VPN protocols and SD-WAN capabilities allow flexible branch-to-cloud traffic management, including multi-transport VPN and hybrid WAN.

Advanced VPN capabilities make it easy for you to:

  • Establish secure connections between offices, Google Cloud projects, datacenters, and hybrid cloud deployments
  • Provide flexible VPN remote access from laptops, tablets, and smartphones
  • Place critical and confidential resources in public-cloud environments with confidence

Secure, Anytime Access
