Barracuda Web Filter 1010 Handles up to 12,000 Concurrent Users in a Single Appliance

Interop 2009, Las Vegas, & Basingstoke, UK, 19th May, 2009 – (Booth # 621) Barracuda Networks Inc., the worldwide leader in content security appliances, today announced the launch of the Barracuda Web Filter 1010 for large organisations, capable of handling up to 12,000 concurrent users in a single appliance. Starting at £67,849 with no per user fees, the Barracuda Web Filter 1010 is the most affordable high-capacity Web filtering appliance on the market targeting enterprises and large organisations.

“One of the biggest challenges facing larger organisations today are shrinking IT budgets and an increase in security risks,” said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks. “The Barracuda Web Filter 1010 is our most powerful, fully integrated Web filtering solution to date, making it a perfect choice for high-end customers looking to meet growing security demands without the deployment complexity or per user fees associated with incumbent solutions.”

Like other Barracuda Web Filter models, the Barracuda Web Filter 1010 is an integrated appliance that provides integrated malware protection, content filtering, application policy control, and an embedded database and reporting engine. A single Barracuda Web Filter 1010 can handle one gigabit per second (Gbps) throughput and features a Web cache size of one terabyte (TB). Able to manage policy for up to 15,000 TCP connections at one time, the Barracuda Web Filter 1010 has four network interfaces that can be used simultaneously in WCCP deployment or in two LAN/WAN pairs in an inline deployment. Multiple Barracuda Web Filter 1010 models can be clustered for both scalability and redundancy. Through the Barracuda Control Center, Barracuda Web Filter models of different sizes can be centrally managed, enabling enforcement of Internet policy across an entire distributed organisation.

Pricing and Availability

The Barracuda Web Filter 1010 will begin shipping in June. The Barracuda Web Filter 1010 is priced at £67,849 for the appliance and £18,349 per year for Energize Updates subscriptions that include content filter, application, antispyware, antivirus, and security definitions. International pricing and availability varies based upon region. For more information please visit www.barracuda.com.

About the Barracuda Web Filter

Available in seven models, the Barracuda Web Filter combines preventative, reactive and proactive measures to form a complete content filtering and anti-spyware solution for businesses of all sizes. The Barracuda Web Filter is designed to enforce acceptable Internet usage policies by blocking access to objectionable content and unauthorised Internet applications. At the same time, the Barracuda Web Filter’s award-winning feature set enables the Barracuda Web Filter to block spyware downloads, prevent viruses, and stop access to spyware Web sites. Unlike the widely available desktop software solutions, the Barracuda Web Filter is easily installed and does not require the additional time, money or resources necessary for downloading and maintaining software on each individual PC. Hourly Energize Updates are made automatically by Barracuda Central so that the Barracuda Web Filter can block the ever-changing virus and spyware variants, as well as maintain the most up-to-date database of the latest productivity-inhibiting Web sites.
