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.

Discover Existing Web Application Vulnerabilities

Web application development is a dynamic process, and with features to implement and timelines to meet, security vulnerabilities will inevitably occur. The Barracuda Vulnerability Manager is a non-invasive, web-based scanning tool that quickly discovers application security flaws such as those on the OWASP Top 10, including SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and others. It is provided at no charge by Barracuda. The detailed output of the scan lists all vulnerabilities discovered, ranks them from most to least critical, and provides additional insights to help you address them.

Simplified Deployment, Automated Security, Greater Agility

DevOps teams work hard and fast to keep your online presence up to date. But time-consuming security audits following every change can slow development cycles, giving your competition the advantage. The Barracuda Web Application Firewall features the Barracuda Vulnerability Remediation Service, which simplifies deployment to just 3 steps:

  1. Install the Web Application Firewall and assign an IP address
  2. Point it at your applications
  3. Initialize the “Scan”

Barracuda Vulnerability Remediation Service generates a report that can be used to automatically configure the Web Application Firewall. You can then automate vulnerability scanning at pre-defined times, or scan on demand as needed, to maintain your security posture as your web presence evolves.
