Barracuda Web Application Firewall

Barracuda WAF

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall blocks an ever-expanding list of sophisticated web-based intrusions and attacks that target the applications hosted on your web servers—and the sensitive or confidential data to which they have access.

Secure Your Web Applications Anywhere

Your outward-facing web applications represent a significant vector for advanced cyber threats that grow more sophisticated daily. Keeping them secure can become a real resource drain on your web admins, DevOps, and security teams, slowing development cycles.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall simplifies application security, so you can focus on your business. Its comprehensive feature set, versatile deployment options, and ease of use let you automate many application security tasks, whether your web infrastructure resides in an onsite datacenter, in a virtualized environment, or in the cloud.

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.

Scalable Security for Public & 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.
