With it, companies and service providers can create a secure access service edge (SASE) in the public cloud. The new Barracuda CloudGen WAN is a SaaS service deployed directly from the Azure Marketplace for as many regions as needed and administered centrally in the CloudGen WAN portal for all office locations and remote endpoints. The new service is deployed directly from the Azure Marketplace and gives users the option of hourly billing along with constant use.
