New additions are intended to improve deployment choices for integrating content and network security functions

firewall-securityBarracuda Networks recently announced a number of security product integrations intended to help schools protect students.

Barracuda has enhanced its next-generation firewall products in an attempt to improve support for transparently redirecting traffic, which allows easier integration between discrete firewall and web security appliances.

Barracuda Firewall, designed for single-site K-12 environments, now supports Safe Search and YouTube for Schools, features often included only with dedicated web security solutions.

Barracuda Web Filter now includes an improved application engine for more advanced accuracy and detection, enabling application visibilities for organizations with legacy Layer 3/Layer 4 firewalls.
