Securing High Business Impact Applications

Best Practices for using Web Application Firewalls in Azure to Secure Web-facing Applications, including SharePoint:

  • Deploy Barracuda Web Application Firewalls in front of your application servers to inspect for any application attacks.
  • Publish SharePoint applications to the internet through the Barracuda Web Application Firewall and allow the WAF to provide an additional security layer for SharePoint.
  • Secure traffic to a database server (e.g. Oracle) deployed in Azure that is hosting a management piece of Oracle.

Deployment in Azure

Customers use the Barracuda Web Application Firewall to protect applications running on or moving to Azure, whereas Microsoft protects the Azure infrastructure itself.

  • By deploying the Web Application Firewall, companies avoid having to re-architect their web-facing applications to leverage Azure’s built-in security and controls. Companies can also bridge on-premises and in-cloud security requirements.
  • The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is deployed behind the Azure Load Balancer to route your traffic in the Azure environment
  • Pairs of Barracuda Web Application Firewalls can be deployed to scale up Azure as your workload requirements increase

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.
