Barracuda Firewall

Barracuda Networks said it would be launching its UTM called Barracuda Firewall later this month. The company offers a line of content security appliances that protect against email, Web and IM threats, as well as a Web application firewall that secures Web applications and websites. In addition, the company provides a next-generation firewall that most recently was recognized by InfoTech Research Group. The company has separate appliances for data backup and message archiving.

Frost & Sullivan's Rodriguez called Barracuda's offering a strong, decent offering. Barracuda declined to participate in the 2012 Magic Quadrant on UTM because a spokesperson said the company's appliance is a "next-gen firewall and not in fact a UTM."
