7 Reasons Why Barracuda NextGen Firewall Is Right for Your Cloud Security

If you're an IT professional for a company that's starting to migrate to the cloud, or you already have significant resources dedicated to platforms like Amazon Web services or Microsoft Azure, you're aware how important security and reliability is to your organization. Unfortunately, traditional firewall tools on your local network can't protect applications or data your company has on the cloud, so finding a security solution that's adapted to the new way you're doing business is essential. That's why the Barracuda NextGen Firewall version 7.0 might be the right product to meet those needs.
