Web application security, simplified:
Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service for Azure

Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service in Azure provides hardened security for web-facing applications. It blocks attacks and compromises by leveraging a reverse-proxy architecture that’s easy to deploy and manage, while still allowing all the flexibility you need in terms of rules and permissions. It is an Azure Preferred solution that leverages numerous built-in Azure security features to provide best-in-class protection.

Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service offers purpose-built, comprehensive protection for web apps and APIs with multi-cloud protection and simple licensing.

Barracuda’s most popular solution for Azure is also available in an easy-to-consume software-as-a-service model. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service runs in Azure, so it takes advantage of Azure’s 50+ regions to maintain data residency and Azure’s resiliency and performance. Better still, WAF-as-a-Service is pre-configured with a standard ruleset that applies to most situations, so you can deploy WAF-as-a-Service with just a few clicks.

A simple, 5-step deployment wizard makes it incredibly easy to get the service up and running, and your apps protected. Because WAF-as-a-Service is based on Barracuda CloudGen WAF, it includes the same capability to modify, augment, and apply different rule sets for your specific applications and needs. It uses the same reverse-proxy architecture so traffic is inspected in both directions, meaning data loss can be detected and prevented in outgoing traffic.

The service also includes comprehensive application DDoS protection along with strong authentication and access control capabilities for restricting access to sensitive applications and data. Optional Advanced Bot Protection also protects your network against today’s most sophisticated and evasive “low-and-slow” bots, with minimal impact on legitimate human traffic.
