Barracuda Provides Secure, High Performance Application Delivery at No Additional Cost

Advanced Application Security Now Standard on Barracuda Load Balancer ADC Models 540 and Above

Sydney, 17 April 2014 – Barracuda Networks, Inc http://www.barracuda.com (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced that it will offer advanced application security on Barracuda Load Balancer ADC models 540 and above at no additional cost. This move signifies a new approach in the application delivery market, making advanced security available to organisations at an affordable cost.

Traditional Application Delivery Controller (ADC) platforms can force customers to make a choice between budget and security, which may lead to compromised security. Barracuda’s new approach allows organisations purchasing Barracuda Load Balancer ADC models 540 and above to include this advanced application security automatically, giving customers the option of scaling layer 7 application security while managing traffic in their data centres.

“As IT Security needs evolve, it is no longer sufficient to consider security as a separate conversation from application performance. Customers shouldn’t have to choose performance over securing their applications,” said Mike romands, ANZ Country Manager, Barracuda Networks. “We believe that by offering this tightly integrated advanced application security on our Barracuda Load Balancer ADC, we’ve made the decision easier for customers to benefit from high performance and advanced security in one affordably priced solution.”

“Barracuda has been a true thought leader when it comes to simplifying the way customers purchase security,” said Chris Christiansen, Program VP for Security Products and Services, IDC. “Barracuda was the first vendor to offer anti-virus at no additional charge on its anti-spam solution, and the first to offer anti-spyware at no additional charge on its web content security solution – and today, Barracuda is the volume leader in worldwide content security according to our most recent Tracker. We expect the bundling of application security with Barracuda’s Application Delivery Controller will once again transform the midmarket IT security landscape.”

In addition to providing authentication, authorisation and accounting (AAA) capabilities, the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC also includes the following advanced application security capabilities: OWASP Top 10 protection, outbound Data Loss Prevention (DLP) monitoring, and application DDoS protection.

Barracuda Load Balancer ADC model 540 is available immediately and starts at AUD $11,995 for the appliance and AUD $2,095 for Energize Updates. An optional Instant Replacement service featuring priority replacement of failed hardware and complimentary refresh of four-year old hardware units is available starting at AUD $2,595 per year.
