As an AWS Security Competency Certified Partner, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall supports a variety of AWS Services enabling customers to fully leverage the power of their AWS environment. The support includes the ablity to launch a dynamically scaling cluster of Barracuda WAF’s using AWS CloudFormation Templates. In such deployments, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall integrates with CloudWatch for performance monitoring and scaling alarms. All deployments are within an AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and secured using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM).
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall fully supports deployment with the AWS Elastic Load Balancer. The AWS ELB can be deployed both upstream and downstream of the Barracuda Web Application Firewall auto scaling cluster. This ensures that the backend application servers can auto scale independently of the Barracuda Web Application Firewall cluster.

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.
The Barracuda Application Security Control Center is the centralized management system that allows administrators to manage multiple geo-dispersed Barracuda Web Application Firewalls with varying configurations from a single console.
