Interoperability between Barracuda Networks CloudGen Firewalls and macmon NAC security solutions automates network management and security enforcement
Berlin, Germany - 13 December 2018 – macmon secure, today announced a new technology alliance with Barracuda Networks in an aim to jointly detect and prevent Ransomware and Advanced Persistent Threats spreading inside the corporate network. The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall and the macmon NAC solution actively share information on availability and security posture for all endpoints in the network.
This allows the automatic quarantine of compromised endpoints and prevents non-authorized end-points from accessing the network. The macmon NAC group based management, of security and network access rules, seamlessly propagates to the Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls for extension of security enforcement. The collaboration between the two solutions, allows for efficient central management and automatic enforcement of access control, as well as internet security policies. The sharing of authentication and status information extends to BYOD or temporary guest devices, where macmon provides zero-touch self-registration and Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls automatically apply the appropriate security and bandwidth policies.
According to Dr. Klaus Gheri, VP and GM Barracuda Network Security: “Automatic detection, isolation and quarantine of infected endpoints by macmon NAC is a logical extension and application of security information by the Barracuda Threat Intelligence Cloud. This offers joint customers an added benefit going beyond the application of each of the products by itself.”
Christian Buecker, CEO macmon secure, adds: “Protection against unauthorized access, malware, Advanced Persistent Threats or even the detection of end devices taken over by bot networks directly at the gateways is extended by the integration with macmon to any entry points to a company network. This provides a security advantage for our mutual customers. In general, users of our NAC solution benefit from the software's high level of security combined with simple handling and operation.”
