The Barracuda Web Security Service is a cloud-based web filtering service ideal for organizations with users in multiple locations. With no hardware to install, this powerful SaaS web filter quickly and affordably lets administrators safeguard users against aggressive malware while centrally managing user access to web content, applications, media, file types and more. It even extends content security and management to off-network mobile devices – perfect for schools that issue iPads to students, or any organization that relies on mobility.
As an enterprise-grade solution for web security, Barracuda Web Security Service saves administrators time otherwise spent disinfecting computers and dealing with data breaches. Barracuda Web Security Service's intuitive web UI gives clear visibility into web activity which speeds network troubleshooting and policy management. Interactive graphs let administrators drill down from high-level overviews of the organization's web activity to fine-grained information about users, websites, applications, files, bandwidth and other factors effecting performance and user productivity. Reporting is just as convenient and granular with no database administration required. Built on a massively scalable worldwide multi-tenant architecture that provides advanced web filtering to customers in fifty countries, Barracuda Web Security Service delivers the fastest, most reliable web filtering in the industry.
Threat intelligence using antivirus, heuristic analysis, real-time script interpreting and AJAX analysis — updated in real time by a 24X7 operations center — detects and blocks known and new threats with zero-hour response time.
This web filter creates global and surgically-precise policies that enforce appropriate user access shaped by 95 content types, group and individual IDs, applications, bandwidth, media and file types and even time of day.
The cloud SaaS infrastructure backs high-speed proxy nodes and traffic centers with intelligent traffic routing and global load balancing to deliver the most reliable web filtering and the lowest latency in the industry.
The Barracuda Safe Browser – included at no charge – enforces content filtering and access policies on iOS tablets and smartphones that are online but off-network. The Web Security Agent extends the same protection to Windows and Mac laptops.
One cloud portal lets administrators manage all locations, all users and all deployment options including optional agents and hardware gateways for consistent security profiles, access policies and reporting.
From simple SaaS deployment to streamlined central management, administration and reporting, Barracuda Web Security Service drives the difficulty out of providing and managing a safe, appropriate web environment.
Simple tiered pricing without individual user licenses, agent license fees or gateway costs makes Barracuda Web Security Service the affordable and easy-to-provision solution for web filtering.
For managing web use and security at highly distributed organizations, a cloud based web-filtering service like Barracuda Web Security Flex has several advantages over other solutions. The following features tell why Barracuda Web Security Flex is the right solution for deploying SaaS web filtering programs.
Mobile Device Security
When mobile devices join the network, do you know where they've been? And when they leave, do you know where they go? The Barracuda Safe Browser and the Barracuda Web Security Agent bring you peace of mind by extending content security and access controls beyond the network boundary.
Offered at no charge with any Web Security Service subscription, these mobility solutions redirect all web requests through your cloud-based content-filtering and access-regulation policies. So even when your mobile devices are out and about and consorting with unknown, unsecured Wi-Fi networks, they are still totally protected and totally visible.
The Barracuda Safe Browser is a web browser for iOS devices that replaces the default Safari browser that's loaded at the factory. And the Web Security Agent is a small, tamper-resistant client for Windows and Mac laptops that transparently enforces user and group policies when connected off-network.
