Secure the Apps that Power Your Business


Whether your organization is a one-person startup, a global enterprise, or anything in between, you depend on applications to operate effectively. They are where your customers and partners connect with you, and they are how your employees get their jobs done every day. Unfortunately, your applications can also act as a significant vector for today’s advanced threats. A single unpatched vulnerability can let an attacker penetrate your network, steal or compromise your (and your customers’) data, and profoundly disrupt your operations.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall defeats today’s most sophisticated, complex threats with advanced inspection capabilities that do not impact throughput. It improves overall app performance with built-in application delivery features including SSL offloading, load balancing, and content caching.


Protect Against Evolving Application Threats

With the Barracuda Web Application Firewall, threat windows that might otherwise remain open for weeks or months are reduced to a few seconds or less.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall has advanced virtual-patching capabilities to help you ensure that any vulnerabilities in your apps are eliminated before they can be noticed and exploited by threat actors. When Barracuda’s global threat intelligence network identifies a new threat or vulnerability anywhere in the world, your Web Application Firewall immediately gains the capability to patch the vulnerability and block the threat, protecting you against data loss, application-layer DDoS, zero-day application-layer attacks, OWASP Top-10 threats, and more.

Optimal Performance and Accelerated Delivery

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall combines reverse-proxy-based security with built-in application delivery features. This gives you improved application performance and availability, reducing lag time and providing a better, more consistent experience for all your users, customers, and partners.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall also leverages the Barracuda Vulnerability Remediation Service to accelerate your deployment of new or updated apps. It automates security audits and continually patches vulnerabilities as they arise during development. As a result, you can deploy faster, and stay ahead of the competition.

Granular Identity and Access Management

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall gives you strong granular controls to easily restrict access to sensitive applications or data to authorized users. Integrated Identity Access and Management pre-authenticates on the perimeter allowing access. You can offload User Access Control from multiple applications to a single consolidated device. Detailed audit logging provides clear visibility into user activity across all protected applications.


Intuitive Administration and Management

Barracuda Web Application Firewall is designed to be easy and fast to deploy, configure, and manage. Integrations with best-of-breed security tools ensure easy deployments 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 ensure maximum application uptime thanks to redundancy and seamless failover capabilities.


Stop Distributed Denial-of-Service Attacks

Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks disrupt the availability of your critical applications, and are a leading cause of costly service outages. Barracuda Active DDoS Prevention—an add-on service for the Barracuda Web Application Firewall—filters out volumetric DDoS attacks before they ever reach your network. It also protects against sophisticated application DDoS attacks without the administrative and resource overhead of traditional solutions, to eliminate service outages while keeping costs manageable for organizations of all sizes.
