Cybersecurity solutions provider Barracuda Networks is launching Barracuda SecureEdge, a new SASE solution designed to make hybrid and remote work environments easier to secure with integration into SD-WAN, firewall, zero trust and secure web gateway solutions.
According to the Campbell, Calif. cloud-first security company, its single-vendor SASE service is designed to help businesses and managed service providers (MSPs) strengthen their security posture and reduce costs. The company says Barracuda SecureEdge secures users, sites and IoT devices, and can connect any device, application and cloud or hybrid environment.
According to Barracuda, its SASE solution–delivered as a service–includes multi-layered network protection for consistent policy enforcement for both remote and in-office users, delivered from the cloud, on-prem or hybrid environments.
In addition, the solution offers protection against web-based threats regardless of user location, and secure remote access for any user to any application. SecureEdge also facilitates optimized cloud and application access from any user or site by providing Secure SD-WAN capabilities.
The solution also facilitates direct access to applications for remote users by leveraging Zero Trust enforcement, URL filtering, and traffic optimization to make the most of shared internet lines, the company says.
Specifically, Barracuda says SecureEdge provides control and visibility tools that give business and MSPs insight into user-generated traffic at each endpoint, allowing them to maintain control over critical application traffic.
Barravcuda’s new SASE service also features intent-based networking policies that are applied across the entire platform, including SD-WAN and secure application access, and multiple levels of security and connectivity with auto-secure SD-WAN are included over all available uplinks.
In addition, Barracuda SecureEdge includes built-in last-mile optimization using advanced forward error correction algorithms to mitigate packet loss and optimize network traffic, which are applied when connecting office locations and endpoints.
“Barracuda’s new SecureEdge platform provides businesses and MSPs with a SaaS solution that makes remote and hybrid work easier to secure and helps to improve security and reduce costs,” said Tim Jefferson, senior vice president of engineering for data, network and application security at Barracuda, in a statement. “With SecureEdge, Barracuda offers a cloud-native SASE platform that enables customers to control access to data from any device, anytime, anywhere, and allows security inspection and policy enforcement in the cloud, at the branch, or on the device.”
