The Barracuda Networks Security Team is pleased to announce public availability of firmware version 7.0.2.
Besides various minor fixes and improvements, firmware version 7.0.2 introduces the following new features:
NextGen Firewall now available for Google Cloud Platform Deployments
The F-Series Firewall can be deployed to the Google Cloud Platform to secure and connect your cloud resources. The NextGen Firewall can be deployed either by uploading the disk image available from the Barracuda download portal, or by using the marketplace image in Google Launcher.
Migrating to a New Hardware Model Wizard
A new wizard now helps you to migrate PAR files created on hardware firewall models either to the next larger model or to a different revision of the same model. The PAR file migration wizard automatically changes default values to fit the new model unless the settings have been changed by the admin. The migration is available for both stand-alone and managed firewalls.
Support for integrated Barracuda DSL Modems
Some upcoming NextGen Firewall models will feature a built-in DSL modem supporting ADSL and VDSL connections.
The downloads are available here. As always it is highly recommended to read the release notes that can be found here.
