Barracuda was the first vendor to provide multi-link support for Azure Virtual WAN.– Dr. Reshmi Yandapalli, Principal Project Manager, Microsoft Azure Networking

“A cloud-first strategy asks for a different approach on connectivity. We have invested heavily in Microsoft Office 365 adoption across the organization, and traditional connectivity doesn't fit the bill anymore. We need a solution that is focused on delivering application performance, not just ‘plain’ connectivity. That’s why we’re moving forward with Barracuda CloudGen WAN.”

Harness the power of the cloud to build a modern, high-performance WAN.

CloudGen WAN is more than just another SD-WAN solution. It lets you build an automated cloud-based network by leveraging the Microsoft Global Network. The product of a joint development program by Microsoft and Barracuda, CloudGen WAN is the only global secure SD-WAN service built natively on Azure. It is a single, unified solution that makes it very simple to ensure highly secure, seamless connectivity to all your locations and all your cloud-based resources and applications.

Build your business using one of the most powerful cloud infrastructures.

Use the Microsoft Global Network—a vast backbone network that offers the availability, capacity, and flexibility to meet any demand—as the core of your modern, highly distributed WAN. Barracuda CloudGen WAN lets you easily connect all your locations to the Microsoft Global Network via Azure Virtual WAN. It combines the highest levels of security and SD-WAN capabilities in an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-manage solution that is purpose-built to bring you all the benefits of the cloud.

Say goodbye to complex, costly deployment and maintenance tasks.

With zero-touch deployment, industry-proven default configurations, and an easy, intuitive management interface, Barracuda CloudGen WAN automates and simplifies all the tasks that traditionally make WAN management complex and challenging. Barracuda CloudGen WAN delivers a complete set of industry-leading next-generation security capabilities while dramatically reducing IT resource overhead, saving you time and money.

Improve performance, boost reliability, and significantly reduce costs.

By deploying Barracuda CloudGen WAN and harnessing the power of the Microsoft Global Network, you completely eliminate the need for costly MPLS uplinks and connections—which according to Gartner account for nearly two thirds of the costs associated with network architectures. Combine these savings with the long-term reduction of IT resource needs and with the business benefits of cloud flexibility and reliability, and the value of using CloudGen WAN and Microsoft Global Network is self-evident.

Adopt the SASE framework for improved security in cloud networks.

According to Gartner the future of network security is in the cloud, with SASE—Secure Access Service Edge—serving as the new paradigm for software-defined secure access. CloudGen WAN is Barracuda’s practical implementation of the SASE concept. It combines the ease of use of SASE services with the cloud-friendliness and the proven security of Barracuda CloudGen Firewall. With Microsoft and Barracuda CloudGen WAN, you can migrate your network, and security infrastructures to the public cloud with total confidence.
