Barracuda embeds R&S®PACE 2

Customer product: Firewall


“As an early adopter of the Rohde & Schwarz technology, we managed to release one of the first next-generation firewalls in 2007. Beyond award-winning products, we are committed to provide excellent support to our customers and partners. This is only possible if our technology partners can live up to the same high expectations and standards. Throughout all of our partnership, we have always felt very well looked after by Rohde & Schwarz.”

Background information

When Barracuda first contracted with Rohde & Schwarz in 2007, their enterprise customers were most concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. As times change, the need for application awareness and traffic visibility is still the same. Today, Barracuda protects its enterprise customers’ networks relying on cloud computing, software as a service (SaaS) and an increasingly mobile workforce. With R&S®PACE 2 at the core of their NextGen firewall F-Series, Barracuda is able to classify network traffic up to application level regardless of advanced obfuscation, encryption or port hopping techniques. Convinced of the benefits of R&S®PACE 2, Barracuda decided to embed the Rohde & Schwarz DPI engine into their product Web Security Gateway.
