Enterprise hardware company Barracuda Networks announced the Barracuda NG Firewall is available using the Microsoft Windows Azure cloud platform. Microsoft is increasingly partnering with hardware and software companies looking to support Azure, as many major enterprises and companies use the popular cloud service.
"Customers are increasingly looking to move their applications to the cloud, and Windows Azure provides a robust cloud infrastructure platform for them to do so," said Yossi Dahan, Solidsoft Principle Consultant, in a press statement. "The Barracuda Web Application Firewall and Barracuda NG Firewall solutions provide complementary application security and secure remote access capabilities that augment Windows Azure."
The Barracuda NG Firewall provides remote sessions that are secure - and includes streamlined management capabilities.
Barracuda has become popular among SMBs up to companies, as the company's products are typically easy-to-install and have fairly easy maintenance. Barracuda also offers potential customers the opportunity to try its products before deciding to make a purchase.
