Barracuda Solutions for Amazon Web Services

Secure your cloud deployment with AWS ‘featured’ solutions and services.


Enhanced cloud security from the market leader.

Secure your journey to the cloud.

As you migrate your workloads to AWS, it's crucial that you ensure the security of those workloads as part of the AWS shared security responsibility model.

Automate security deployments.

Block cyber-threats of all kinds.

Barracuda CloudGen WAF detects a wide variety of application security flaws, including all OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities and countless zero-hour and advanced threats. It's a non-invasive, cloud-based tool, with no impact on your operations.

The Barracuda CloudGen WAF has achieved the AWS APN Security Competency, meaning it's been pre-qualified by AWS Solution Architects as a well-designed solution. Its performance-tuning features include SSL offloading, load balancing, and content caching.

Secure workload migration.

Migrating a workload to AWS is the first step for many companies in their journey to the cloud. As a part of the shared security responsibility model, you are responsible for securing those migrated workloads. The Barracuda CloudGen WAF secures applications on AWS and makes it easier, safer, and more efficient to move your workloads to AWS.

Barracuda CloudGen WAF leverages AWS well-architected best practices, including autoscaling capabilities. When deployed in clusters—a standard Reference Architecture for redundancy and expandability—the Barracuda CloudGen WAF can automatically scale up or down in real time to match fluctuations in workload demands.

Automate security deployments.

In the on-premises world, security is usually treated as a networking function. In the cloud, you can design security directly into your applications by using APIs. Published integrations with orchestration tools like Puppet let you automatically incorporate CloudGen WAFs into your packaged applications when they are deployed.

Barracuda CloudGen WAF APIs are publicly available in GitHub and leverage features built into orchestration platforms without any changes to your application user interface or additional overhead. This streamlines development by removing the additional step of adding security into already-built applications, and it eliminates security vulnerabilities that were inadvertently designed-in.

Secure access to the AWS cloud.

When moving from an on-premises infrastructure to the cloud, securing remote users access becomes critical. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall for AWS provides VPN clients for both desktop and mobile users, overcoming security gaps in many devices which can compromise AWS deployments of these mission-critical applications, and further hardens your organization's security when running mission-critical apps in the cloud.

The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall includes Barracuda's high-speed TINA tunnel, developed to overcome limitations that come with standard IPsec connections. The TINA (Transport Independent Network Architecture) protocol allows the use of TCP, UDP, and ESP for high speed VPN connections, which improves the VPN connectivity and supports transit VPCs.

Build fast. Stay secure.

Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian is an agentless SaaS service that helps organizations stay secure while building applications in and moving workloads to the public Cloud. By continuously evaluating your posture against built-in best IT security practices, it helps avoid compliance violations that can lead to threats and compromise, and can even remediate those violations automatically. Cloud Security Guardian is the first such product to be certified by CIS (Center for Internet Security) and leverages CIS Benchmarks as part of its policy tools.
