New Barracuda Security Product Launches: App Delivery, Application Control/Prioritization

Barracuda ADC platform secures applications against attacks at both the network and application layer

Campbell, Calif. (April 23, 2013) – Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of security and storage solutions, today announced the release of its new application delivery controller, an integrated solution that combines load balancing, application acceleration, application control, and application security into a single, high-performance platform. The launch marks Barracuda's official entrance into the Application Delivery Controller market space, a highly anticipated move for the company given its extensive history of securing and scaling applications in the data center.

According to the 4Q12 Data Center Appliance Report, published Feb. 2013 by Dell'Oro Group, "data center build outs, consolidation, the continued preference of users bringing their own devices, as well as increased applications on each device, will drive robust growth in the ADC market in 2013." Barracuda's new ADC combines the advanced capabilities of the company's purpose-built appliances for application security and load balancing, which have an installed base of more than 17,000 data center customers throughout the world.

Key highlights of the new Barracuda ADC platform include:

· Designed for Data Centers – The new Barracuda ADC platform is designed for performance. With up to 32 x 1GbE ports and up to 8 x 10GbE ports, it easily meets the needs of today's high-traffic data centers.

· Complete Application Security – Barracuda's ADC platform secures applications against attacks at both the network and the application layer, including OWASP Top-10 attacks such as SQL injection, cookie tampering, and session hijacking – without impacting system performance.

· Thoroughly Tested Deployments – Extensive certifications, templates, and deployment guides are included for common applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle Applications, web servers, and virtual servers.

"Until now, customers wishing to both secure their applications and optimize performance have faced very high costs and unnecessary complexity," said Steve Pao, GM Security Business at Barracuda Networks. "The new Barracuda application delivery controller platform integrates advanced load balancing and application security in a single, affordable, high-performance solution to help customers efficiently and securely deliver highly available applications."

Barracuda Networks' new application delivery controllers are available worldwide immediately as hardware or as virtual appliances as part of Barracuda Load Balancer ADC product line. Pricing is available on the Barracuda website: www.barracuda.com/adc.
