The Barracuda Load Balancer ADC is ideal for organizations looking for a high-performance, yet cost-effective application delivery and security solution.
Highly demanding enterprise networks require full-featured application delivery controller that optimizes application load balancing and performance while providing protection from an ever-expanding list of intrusions and attacks. The Barracuda Load Balancer ADC is a Secure Application Delivery Controller that enables Application Availability, Acceleration and Control, while providing Application Security Capabilities.
Available in hardware, virtual and cloud instances, the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC provides advanced Layer 4 and Layer 7 load balancing with SSL Offloading and Application Acceleration. The built-in Global Server Load Balancing (GSLB) module allows you to deploy your applications across multiple geo-dispersed locations. The Application Security module ensures comprehensive web application protection, including against OWASP Top 10 and Application DDoS attacks, while monitoring outbound traffic for Data Loss Prevention.
The Barracuda Load Balancer ADC is ideal for optimizing application performance. It offloads compute-intensive SSL transactions from the server, preserving resources for applications. In addition, optimization features such as caching, compression, and TCP pooling enable faster application delivery and ensure scalability.
Barracuda Load Balancer ADC has been the preferred solution for organizations looking to load balance and secure Microsoft applications. Certified configuration and deployment guides ensure organizations can quickly and easily scale out their Microsoft applications while also securing them against targeted attacks or unauthorized access.
Using health and performance checks, the Barracuda Load Balancer ADC distributes traffic for efficient use of server resources and employs server failover for high availability, thereby optimizing application performance. Global Server Load Balancing allows redundancy across multiple sites enhancing availability, improving client response time, and speeding disaster recovery.
Application Authentication ensures that only known users are able to access critical applications. Unauthenticated traffic can be prevented from passing through the DMZ. Application security provides superior protection against data loss, DDoS, and all known application-layer attack modalities. Automatic updates ensure comprehensive security for existing and emerging Layer 7 threats such as SQL injections (SQLi), Cross-site Scripting (XSS), and other OWASP Top 10 attacks.
Today, cloud computing has become a “must-have” to a majority of the enterprise IT community, for reasons ranging from economic gains to technology benefits. Intelligent traffic monitoring capabilities enable Barracuda Load Balancer ADC to distribute traffic efficiently to server resources and employs server failover for high availability. Meanwhile, Global Server Load Balancing enables redundancy across multiple sites, thereby enhancing availability and speeding disaster recovery. Barracuda ADC Load Balancer can be readily plugged into private cloud environments as well as third-party cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services.
