How to Create a Private Edge Service in Barracuda SecureEdge

  • Last updated on

Barracuda SecureEdge provides a private Edge Service for hybrid deployments. A private Edge Service is ideal for organizations that need to follow certain geopolitical requirements or need full control over their data plane. Private Edge Service devices provide the same scope of security and networking functionality as the cloud service and are administrated and maintained via a central management platform.

Before You Begin

  • You need an ISP with a static public IP version 4 address. 
  • High availability is recommended. For more information, see High Availability.
