Knowledge = Power

The Barracuda Web Security Gateway’s intuitive management interface delivers detailed, real-time visibility into network activity and web interactions. This lets administrators identify users and applications that waste bandwidth and harm productivity, and enforce granular policies to regulate access without impacting legitimate business uses.

Security Beyond Boundaries

Enforcing access policies on remote and mobile devices that are used off-network is critical for preventing malware intrusions into the network, and for preventing data loss. The Barracuda Web Security Gateway includes unlimited licenses for agents and tools that ensure users and devices are protected whether they are on the network or at a public Wi-Fi hotspot

Enforce web content and access policies for users both on and off the network.
