London, UK: Barracuda Networks Inc., a leading provider of security and data protection solutions, has announced it was positioned as a Champion in Info-Tech Research Group's “Next Generation Firewalls Vendor Landscape Report.” The Barracuda NG Firewall was praised in the report as a highly comprehensive solution offering flexible deployment options and solid support.

“What we’re seeing are smaller vendors, like Barracuda, becoming quite competitive with stronger products against the bigger names in the security space,” said Jessica Ireland, research analyst at Info-Tech Research Group. “This is a definite shift happening in the market landscape right now. Barracuda is a good example of a company being able to keep up with this shift.”

Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognise outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Vendors positioned as Champions by Info-Tech receive high scores for most evaluation criteria and offer excellent value. Champions also have a strong market presence and are usually the trendsetters in the industry. The Barracuda NG Firewall was recognised for its centralised management and offering flexibility of hardware, software and virtual appliance deployment methods. As stated in the report, “each Barracuda model is managed by the same console, making them not only scalable, but easily integrated.” The Barracuda NG Firewall also garnered high marks in the overall Info-Tech NGFW Value Index and for its advanced features, such as identity-based control and WAN routing and optimisation.

“Today’s enterprise needs a next generation firewall that can effectively protect, manage and simplify network operations,” said Michael Van Bruinisse, general manager and vice president of Barracuda Enterprise. “We are pleased by Info-Tech’s Champion recognition, which reaffirms our rapid growth and the decision our customers have made to replace legacy firewalls with the Barracuda NG Firewall.”
