Barracuda Products for Google Cloud Platform
The cloud can be made even more secure than your on-premises environment, but only if you choose the right products to enhance your basic GCP infrastructure.
First for a Reason
Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F Series was the first network firewall approved for use on Google Cloud Platform. It provides network-based protection that is fully
integrated with GCP.
The “shared responsibility” model of security for cloud platforms means that you are responsible for protecting sensitive data when you migrate existing workloads.
Seamless Workload Migration
Migrate your workloads to GCP
Secure Remote Access
Remotely connect users to your GCP environment with granular control
Automate Deploying Protections
Fully-featured API enables DevOps and SecOps to automate security controls using familiar tools
Protect Your Workloads
Migrated to the Cloud
Most companies start out by migrating existing workloads from on-premises infrastructure to GCP. Web-accessible applications run much the same way in GCP as they did in an on-premises or hosted environment, but new security controls are needed to protect data in GCP.
With Barracuda’s solutions for GCP, you can use the same Reference Architecture for on-premises WAFs and firewalls to secure a web-facing application can be applied across multiple applications. This makes it much easier, safer, and more efficient to deploy many workloads in GCP.
Secure Remote Access to
Google Cloud Platform
Moving from an on-premises infrastructure to the cloud creates a new challenge for secure remote access. GCP provides a finite number of remote connections to network-facing applications, whereas companies may want remote workers to have access across a range of devices – from mobiles to laptops. Unfortunately, the security built-in to such devices often leaves security gaps and compromises the ability to leverage GCP for these mission-critical applications.
By deploying the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, you gain an almost unlimited capability to remotely connect users to these applications. Dedicated VPN clients are available for the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall to support most popular
device operating systems.
Automate GCP Security with
CloudGen WAF APIs
In the on-premises world, security is usually treated as a
networking function. In the cloud, you can design security
directly into your applications by using APIs and published integrations with orchestration tools to automatically deploy CloudGen WAFs when your applications are deployed.
Protection for the Cloud Generation
If you’re running internal workloads in public cloud environments, you
require robust, reliable access controls. All too often, organisations 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, GCP projects,
datacentres, and hybrid cloud deployments
- Provide flexible VPN remote access from laptops, tablets,
- Place critical and confidential resources in public-cloud
environments with confidence
