Barracuda Announces Integration with Microsoft Azure Virtual WAN

Barracuda Networks, Inc. has announced support for Microsoft Azure Virtual WAN service through its powerful CloudGen Firewall, extending enhanced networking security to organizations looking to deploy Azure Virtual WAN.

"Customers want choice and flexibility in the cloud, but they can't sacrifice security," said Tim Jefferson, VP Public Cloud at Barracuda. "By using our integration with Azure Virtual WAN, customers can have the best of both worlds — large-scale branch connectivity over Azure Virtual WAN with enhanced network security via the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall."

In public preview since July, Microsoft Azure Virtual WAN service provides optimized, automated, and global-scale branch connectivity. Azure Virtual WAN brings the ability to connect customers' branches to Azure with SD-WAN and VPN devices (i.e. Customer Premises Equipment or CPE), with built-in ease of use and automated connectivity and configuration management.

The Barracuda connection to Azure Virtual WAN is automated: Users need only fill out authentication information and click "connect." Barracuda also utilizes dynamic routing protocols in the background to make sure new routes to new locations are automatically picked up and made available.

"We're pleased that customers looking to simplify branch connectivity and extend application workloads on Microsoft Azure now have access to the Barracuda integrated Azure Virtual WAN solution," said Ross Ortega, Partner PM Manager, Azure Networking, Microsoft. "The integration between Azure Virtual WAN and Barracuda provides ease of use and simplification of connectivity and configuration management, hence providing optimized and automated branch-to-branch connectivity through Azure." 

The integration is available now and can be leveraged by organizations using Azure Virtual WAN in the Public Preview.
