Case Study: Barracuda Firewalls rely on R&S®PACE 2

How deep packet inspection enables security and traffic control of critical enterprise cloud applications

Case study Barracuda-PACE2: How deep packet inspection enables security of cloud applications

Barracuda’s cloud-ready firewalls utilize the OEM deep packet inspection (DPI) software R&S®PACE 2 to achieve reliable application visibility that allows for controlling network traffic and for facilitating the secure delivery of critical cloud business applications. R&S®PACE 2 provides powerful and extremely reliable detection and classification of thousands of applications and their attributes through combining DPI and behavioral traffic analysis, regardless of whether the protocols use advanced obfuscation, port hopping techniques or encryption.

Being embedded in their F-Series CloudGen Firewalls, R&S®PACE 2 enables Barracuda to identify protocols like Voice over IP (VoIP) while maintaining a high bandwidth, even if settings are being changed to reprioritize applications on the fly (dynamic quality of service (QoS) settings).
This improves site-to-site connectivity and enables uninterrupted access to applications hosted in the cloud, all while simplifying the administration of network operations for enterprises and managed service providers (MSP).
