For schools looking for a way to deploy firewall and web security from a single vendor, Barracuda has added a new transparent redirect feature available on both the Barracuda NG Firewall and the Barracuda Firewall. These additions enable the Barracuda firewall products to hand off web traffic to the Barracuda Web Filter without inline connections.
As a full web proxy, the Barracuda Web Filter offers a number of more advanced security functions not typically present in firewall solutions, including content policy alerting, and advanced granular reporting.
Barracuda recently announced enforcement for Safe Search on major search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.), and YouTube for Schools with the latest version of Barracuda NG Firewall designed for large, multi-site school district deployments.
With this announcement, Barracuda is extending those capabilities and adding Safe Search and YouTube for Schools support with the latest version of Barracuda Firewall, designed for smaller, single-site, K-12 organizations. Administrators now can implement Safe Search and YouTube for Schools enforcement across Barracuda next-generation firewall and web security products.
