New Barracuda Web Filter Models Feature 10 GbE Interfaces

New models feature increased performance and capacity to offer comprehensive Web content filtering and malware protection at multigigabit speeds

Campbell, Calif. (June 19, 2013) – Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of security and storage solutions, today announced new high-performance 10 GbE interfaces for the Barracuda Web Filter 1010 and 1011 models. The new models feature increased performance and capacity to offer comprehensive web content filtering and malware protection at multi-gigabit speeds on even the most demanding networks.

A recent IEEE report projected 32% annual growth in global IP traffic through 2015, largely driven by the increases of Internet users, access devices, and services such as video on demand and social media.1 In response to these trends, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recommends a minimum connection speed of 1 Gbps for community anchor institutions such as hospitals and libraries2, while the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) now recommends at least 1 Gbps per 1,000 students/staff to keep up with growing traffic.3

"The Barracuda Web Filter 1010 has been deployed in several large-scale networks since its introduction in 2009," said Steve Pao, GM of the Security Business at Barracuda Networks. "These hardware enhancements and the introduction of fiber interfaces on the 1011 will enable high-end network customers to adopt the Barracuda Web Filter as a key element of their IT security strategy."

Specifications

The Barracuda Web Filter 1010 / 1011 is an integrated appliance that provides content filtering, application blocking, malware protection, and built-in reporting. A single device can support 100,000 simultaneous TCP Connections at 2 Gbps throughput and provides four network interfaces that can be used simultaneously in a WCCP deployment or as two LAN/WAN pairs in an inline deployment.

Multiple Barracuda Web Filter 1010 / 1011 devices can be clustered for both scalability and redundancy. Barracuda Web Filter models of different sizes can be centrally managed through the Barracuda Control Center, enabling enforcement of Internet policy across an entire distributed organization.

The Barracuda Web Filter 410 and above include the Barracuda Web Security Agent (WSA), a downloadable client that can be installed on remote, off-network laptops or desktops to transparently filter web traffic for remote users. They also include the Barracuda Safe Browser (BSB), a secure browser application that transparently filters web traffic on off-network iPhones and iPads.

Pricing and Availability

The Barracuda Web Filter 1010 featuring 10 GbE copper interfaces and the Barracuda Web Filter 1011 featuring 10 GbE SFP+ fiber interfaces are immediately available worldwide.

The Barracuda Web Filter 1010 and 1011 are priced at US$79,999 for the appliance and US$26,399 per year for Energize Updates subscriptions in North America. Energize Updates subscriptions include ongoing content filtering, application, antispyware, antivirus, and security definitions. International pricing and availability varies by region.
