Campbell, Calif. – July 20, 2011 – Barracuda Networks Inc., a leading provider of content security, data protection and application delivery solutions, today launched Barracuda NG Earth 2.0, a new 3D-visualization application that provides an array of information on centrally managed Barracuda NG Firewalls used in distributed network environments. Barracuda NG Earth is part of the Barracuda NG Control Center and free of charge for customers using the Control Center Enterprise or Global Editions.

Easy, Fast and Clear
Barracuda NG Earth allows administrators to easily manage multiple firewall locations using hotkeys and drop-down menus on the navigation bar at the top of the graphical display. Using Barracuda NG Earth, administrators can view:

Detailed product information such as firmware version, model and serial numbers, system status and local device time, as well as configuration settings.
Physical and political maps showing national boundaries, country names and capital cities to improve clarity and navigation.
Drop-down list navigation to easily switch between locations and view the respective site-to-site tunnel and status in real time.
Barracuda NG Earth 2.0 requires minimal system resources such as hard drive space and memory. Administrators who prefer using lightweight subnotebooks and netbooks can use Barracuda NG Earth reliably on these devices to view detailed information on the go.

“Barracuda NG Earth 2.0 sets a completely new benchmark for efficient management of enterprise networks,” said Klaus Gheri, VP product management Europe at Barracuda Networks. “The extremely simple handling, clarity and low system resource requirements make Barracuda NG Earth a unique management tool for centrally managing global VPN connections.“
