Barracuda Networks (CUDA) unveiled a new version of its Spam Firewall at AWS Summit in San Francisco. As you have probably already guessed, this new version has been launched on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and is now available in the AWS Marketplace.

According to Barracuda, Spam Firewall provides security capabilities to customers migrating their email infrastructure to the AWS cloud. And it's adding another option for security and—in particular—antispam to the AWS Marketplace, which gives customers additional choice and partners more options.

"As more organizations look to migrate applications and infrastructures to the cloud, we've seen significant interest in our security technologies available today in AWS Marketplace," said Blair Hankins, vice president of Engineering at Barracuda Networks, in a prepared statement. "Making the Barracuda Spam Firewall available on AWS is the next step in expanding the Barracuda security suite into the cloud, complementing our network security and web application security offerings available today as well."

Barracuda Spam Firewall provides end users with spam and virus blocking capabilities, data protection, DoS prevention, email continuity, encryption and policy management. Like other security-as-a-service options, the Barracuda service is updated automatically and is designed to provide long-term security in the cloud.

The cloud offering is available now in the AWS Marketplace in fee-based and per-hour pricing models through the AWS Marketplace or through the "bring your own license" model.

Licenses are being sold via Barracuda and its channel partners with a starting list price of $1,999 per year.

Barracuda is showcasing the technology this week at AWS Summit.

For partners, it's another good opportunity to bring security in the cloud to their customers and ensure that cloud applications and data are protected against some of the most common forms of malware.
