Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-first security solutions, today announced a new platform called Barracuda SecureEdge, a SASE solution that helps make hybrid and remote work easier to secure. Barracuda SecureEdge integrates Barracuda's Secure SD-WAN, Firewall-as-a-Service, Zero Trust Network Access, and Secure Web Gateway capabilities. Using a single-vendor solution enables businesses and MSPs to strengthen their security posture and help to reduce costs. Delivered as a service, Barracuda SecureEdge secures users, sites, and IoT devices, is easy to manage and connects any device, application, and cloud/hybrid environment.
According to Gartner®, "By 2025, 80% of enterprises will have adopted a strategy to unify web, cloud services, and private application access using a SASE/SSE architecture, up from 20% in 2021."1.
Using a single-vendor SASE solution like Barracuda SecureEdge can lead to cost reduction and stronger security. It reduces the number of systems to purchase and lowers internal and external support costs. Additionally, improved security can be achieved and there are fewer risks of misconfigurations and interoperability issues that can happen between separate security systems. Today, cloud migrations, remote work, and the need for anytime, anywhere access makes a SASE solution essential.
The new Barracuda SecureEdge platform makes hybrid and remote work easier to secure, strengthens security, improves performance, and reduces management complexity. Key use cases for customers include:
Multi-layered network protection: Offers consistent policy enforcement for in-office and remote users, delivered from the cloud, on-premises, or in a hybrid environment.
Protection against web-based threats: Protects against web-based threats, regardless of the location of the user.
Secure remote access: Provides secure remote access for any user to any application and workload, with Zero Trust Access.
Optimized cloud and application access: Facilitates optimized cloud and application access from any user or site by providing Secure SD-WAN capabilities.
SecureEdge facilitates direct access to applications for remote users with Zero Trust enforcement, URL filtering, and traffic optimization to make the most of shared internet lines. Key highlights of the new platform are:
Control and visibility: Provides a high level of control and visibility into user-generated traffic at each endpoint. Selective security inspection enables businesses and MSPs to maintain control over critical application traffic.
Intent-based networking: Simplifies operations by applying intent-based networking principles across the entire platform, including SD-WAN and secure application access.
Multiple levels of security and connectivity: Includes multiple levels of security and connectivity with auto-secure SD-WAN over all available uplinks.
Built-in optimization: Built-in last-mile optimization uses advanced Forward Error Correction algorithms to mitigate packet loss and optimize network traffic. These algorithms are applied when connecting office locations as well as endpoints.
Barracuda SecureEdge is available for customers, partners, and MSPs. Please see the following for more information:
"Barracuda's new SecureEdge platform provides businesses and MSPs with a SaaS solution that makes remote and hybrid work easier to secure and helps to improve security and reduce costs," said Tim Jefferson, SVP, Engineering for Data, Network, and Application Security at Barracuda. "With SecureEdge, Barracuda offers a cloud-native SASE platform that enables customers to control access to data from any device, anytime, anywhere, and allows security inspection and policy enforcement in the cloud, at the branch, or on the device."
"The new SecureEdge platform from Barracuda, which offers a single solution that includes secure SD-WAN and remote access for users, will enable us to extend security features to the endpoint and make remote and hybrid work easier to protect," said David Peppard, Chief Technology Officer with SuperCare Health. "By implementing device-level security and inspecting suspicious or endangered network traffic on the SD-WAN device or in the cloud, we are confident that we can achieve a dramatically increased level of security."
"Barracuda's new SASE service, SecureEdge is an innovative platform that provides enhanced security capabilities to the endpoint and facilitates the protection of remote and hybrid workforces," said Sascha Koecher, Technical Team Lead, Security & Network at Digit Solutions. "SecureEdge boasts a simple rollout and intuitive management, all accessible through a single portal. We are confident that our mutual customers will appreciate the benefits of the platform and enjoy peace of mind knowing their networks are protected against today's most advanced cyber threats."

AdaCore, a trusted provider of software development and verification tools, today announced the launch of its new RecordFlux technology, designed to ease the development and security of binary communication protocols. The technology comprises a Domain Specific Language (DSL) to precisely describe complex binary data formats and communication protocols, and a toolset to verify specifications and generate provable SPARK code that can be executed on a target CPU.
Through RecordFlux, users can define and implement complex communication protocols and prove security properties, such as memory safety, at much less cost and effort than would be possible with a manual approach. The precision of the RecordFlux DSL ensures that the specifications are unambiguous, the high-level nature of the DSL makes the specifications easily understandable by domain experts, and the expressive power of the DSL can capture the most complex real-world protocols. And since the RecordFlux code generator produces source code in the formal methods-based SPARK language, users can obtain automated proofs of a wide range of security properties in the resulting software. The net effect is more secure and reliable code, at lower cost.
“Interaction between software components is governed by protocol and format specifications. Unfortunately, most specification documents are complex texts written in English which need to be translated to software implementations manually, leaving room for human error,” said Alex Senier, AdaCore’s RecordFlux Team Lead. “Logic errors and critical flaws are often poorly mitigated by the widespread use of unsafe programming languages, resulting in severe security vulnerabilities. With RecordFlux, we aim to provide a solution that saves time and money by automating provable code generation while ensuring the absence of low-level vulnerabilities like buffer overflows that attackers could exploit.”
RecordFlux is a toolset for creating high-assurance implementations of binary data formats and communication protocols. The technology includes a Domain Specific Language, a comprehensive toolset, and customized expert support. By using SPARK Pro, developers can take the SPARK code generated from RecordFlux specifications and automatically prove that the code is free of run-time errors and respects the original specification.
Code generated by RecordFlux is also compatible with GNAT Pro Assurance, AdaCore’s complete solution for projects with the most stringent requirements for reliability, long-term maintenance, or certification. The compiler-hardening options provided by GNAT Pro Assurance can be used to mitigate further attacks on network-facing protocol-handling code.
Founded in 1994, AdaCore supplies software development and verification tools for mission-critical, safety-critical, and security-critical systems.
Over the years, customers have used AdaCore products to field and maintain a wide range of critical applications in domains such as commercial and military avionics, defense systems, automotive, railway, space, air traffic management/control, medical devices, and financial services.
