Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls include full next-generation security paired with all network optimization and management functionality today known as Secure SD-WAN. The integration with macmon expands the protection on the corporate network at any entry point against unauthorized access, malware, Advanced Persistent Threats and detection of bot-controlled endpoint devices immediately at the gateway.
Your added value: While macmon gathers ARP information from all devices on the network and enforces policies at the MAC level, Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls with Advanced Threat Protection and Botnet detection sends macmon live updates on identified threats at the client. Subsequently affected endpoint devices can be either automatically disconnected from the network or moved to a quarantine segment. At the same time, macmon reports information on detected endpoints, allowing enforcement of appropriate security policies with Barracuda CloudGen Firewall. Communication policies that apply between two network segments, are not only segment based anymore, but also endpoint group based. Group member lists are continuously being maintained through macmon’s active endpoint discovery, which leads to your communication policies always being up to date. Guest devices are also being separated from the rest of the network by the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall. macmon will allow these guest devices to pass a registration process that lets you granularly define what type of access is granted, for example only access to the web, but not to YouTube or peer-to-peer.
Integration requires the macmon Premium Bundle.
