Barracuda Networks has announced a new version of Barracuda CloudGen Firewall. 

The latest version is designed to help streamline SD-WAN management, optimize cloud connectivity, and automate scalable protection in multi-cloud environments. 

CloudGen Firewall 8 introduces a number of new features, including direct Internet breakout optimization, WAN Path Controller dashboard, automated integration with Azure vWAN, full life cycle automation API, auto VPN, and multi-gigabit performance.

According to Barracuda, there is also up to a 50 percent improvement in VPN performance.
