Barracuda Web Application Security

Web Application Firewall
With hundreds of lines of code to check - and vulnerabilities often subtle and hard to find - a serious data breach is often the first sign that a web application has problems. Having secured thousands of production applications against more than 11 billion attacks since 2008, the Barracuda offers the ideal solution for organizations looking to protect web applications from data breaches and defacement. Administrators no longer need to wait for clean code or even know how an application works to secure their applications. Organizations can ensure robust Barracuda web security through hardware, virtual appliance, deployed either on-premises or in the cloud.

Provides Constant Protection from Evolving ThreatsThe Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides superior protection against data loss, application-layer DDoS, and known and previously unknown zero day application-layer attack modalities. As new types of threats emerge, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall will acquire new capabilities to block them. These definitions are automatically updated and will “virtually patch” automatically on units in the field, ensuring the highest security posture for critical applications at all times. This greatly reduces the time between vulnerability disclosure and vulnerability patching.

Granular Identity and Access Management
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall has strong authentication and access control capabilities that ensure security and privacy by restricting access to sensitive applications or data to authorized users. Integrated Identity Access and Management pre-authenticates on the perimeter before access is allowed to critical web applications. User Access Control can be offloaded from multiple applications on a single consolidated device. Detailed audit logging provides clear visibility into user activity across all protected applications.

Intuitive Administration and Management
With over 90% of customers deploying active protection in less than a week, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall is designed to provide instant security. Integrations with best-of-breed security tools ensure easily deployments that into existing environments while providing granular logging, alerting, and reporting for management, compliance, or early warning detection. It can be deployed in High Availability clusters to provide redundancy and seamless fail-over capabilities in response to outages thereby ensuring maximum application up-time.

Scalable Security for Public and Private Clouds
Today, cloud computing has become a “must-have” to a majority of the enterprise IT community, for reasons ranging from economic gains to technology benefits. But one of the major concerns carrying over from traditional IT—data and application security—has not changed, and requires the same diligence in the cloud as with on-premises solutions. Fortunately, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall can be readily plugged into private cloud environments as well as third-party cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services.

Microsoft Azure Certified
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is the first integrated, proven and highly scalable security solution on Microsoft Azure, offering comprehensive protection for web applications and for confidential data hosted in the cloud. This solution ensures that web applications have the same high levels of protection afforded by in-house data centers.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall for Microsoft Azure is secure, affordable, and easy to use. It combines web application security, access control, and optimization in a single package that is easy and intuitive to set up and administer. With predefined security templates for web applications and third party packaged applications like Microsoft SharePoint, companies of all sizes can enjoy total application security with no need to learn, configure, and manage complex technology. It is fully integrated with Microsoft Azure and can dynamically scale to meet application performance and workload requirements.

AWS Certified
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall secures applications and data in Amazon Web Services by blocking application layer DDoS and other attack vectors, directed at online applications hosted in Amazon Web Services, while providing superior protection against data loss. It also has strong authentication and access control capabilities for restricting access to sensitive applications and data.

Pre-built security templates and intuitive web user interface provide immediate security without the need for time-consuming tuning or application learning. Integration with security vulnerability scanners and SIEM tools automates the assessment, monitoring, and mitigation process.
