Barracuda offers free trial of its public cloud network and application security solutions
Barracuda Networks, a provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced it has expanded its Cloud Ready program to offer any organization a free 90-day cloud license for Barracuda Web Application Firewall and Barracuda NextGen Firewall on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure (Azure).
Based on feedback from our public cloud partners who want to offer the same capabilities to their customers, weve expanded our Cloud Ready program to help simplify the process so that customers can move to the cloud faster, more cost effectively, and with greater confidence, said Thiban Dharmalingam, the Regional Manager of Barracuda in Malaysia.
“Barracudas security solutions are purpose built to bridge the gap between your on-premises and cloud infrastructures, added Thiban.
These award-winning network and application security solutions are available as pay-as-you-go (PAYG) licenses directly through the Amazon AWS Marketplace and Azure Marketplace.
Removing barriers to cloud migration
Barracudas Cloud Ready network and application security solutions can be natively deployed and fully integrated with AWS and Azure to amplify all the key benefits of the cloud through auto-scaling, templated configurations, bootstrapping, data-logging and more.
Barracudas cloud-enabled security suite allows organizations to deploy their applications and workloads securely with the same powerful capabilities and intuitive user interface whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud.
The cloud introduces new capabilities to scale network infrastructures and application workloads without the same cost and complexity of on-premises equipment. At the same time, migrating to the cloud can be a complicated process, and moving sensitive business applications to the cloud creates new security requirements.
A recent Osterman Research study reported that most respondents cited security concerns as the most common barrier to cloud adoption, with primary concerns being data sovereignty and privacy (58 percent) and general risk control (54 percent), shared Thiban.
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides the controls and has a very easy user interface, to configure and provision it directly through the AWS Marketplace, making the Barracuda Web Application Firewall a great solution, he added.
