Barracuda Networks says that Barracuda NG Firewall, Barracuda Message Archiver, Barracuda Spam Firewall and Barracuda Web Application Firewall have achieved VMware Ready - vCloud Air status. vCloud Air is a public cloud platform built on vSphere from VMware. It has three infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) subscription service types: dedicated cloud, virtual private cloud, and disaster recovery. vCloud Air also offers a pay-as-you-go serviced named Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand.
Thiban Darmalingam, the Regional Manager for Barracuda in Malaysia says, “We are pleased to have our Barracuda products join the vCloud Air ISV Program and achieve VMware Ready - vCloud Air certification. This signifies to customers that the Barracuda NG Firewall, Barracuda Message Archiver, Barracuda Spam Firewall and Barracuda Web Application Firewall will work seamlessly within the VMware vCloud Air, work seamlessly within VMware vCloud Air, and can be deployed in production with confidence.”
“Securing business data moving through the data center both on-premises and in the cloud can be complex and reveal no shortage of security challenges,” adds Thiban.
Organisations extending workloads to the cloud face additional security challenges from an increased attack surface. Businesses need to secure email and applications, including the data they access.
These VMReady Barracuda security and storage solutions are now available on vCloud Air, in the Bring Your Own License (BYOL) model and can be found within the online VMware Solution Exchange (VSX).
