Get total application security in five easy steps.

Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service puts you in complete control. Get up and running quickly and easily with a 5-step deployment wizard and preconfigured rulesets.

Continuous Scanning Remediation OWASP

Find and remediate vulnerabilities automatically.

Complex deployments, frequent updates to apps, and fast deployment of new apps can easily introduce vulnerabilities. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service leverages our advanced vulnerability scanner to constantly monitor your entire deployment for vulnerabilities.

When it finds vulnerabilities—even in apps that are still in development—it can remediate them automatically or with a single click. Detailed reporting of vulnerability discovery and remediation helps you demonstrate compliance.

Leverage powerful reporting capabilities.

In a world of fast-multiplying regulatory frameworks and data privacy protection rules, establishing and demonstrating compliance can be a burdensome, ongoing process that consumes ever-greater amounts of resources.

Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service generates detailed logs automatically, and provides customized reports on demand, making it easy to demonstrate regulatory compliance.

In addition, granular visibility into application traffic and user behavior gives you valuable, actionable insights that you can use to guide strategic planning.

DDOS protection

Get advanced DDoS protection at no extra charge.

Unmetered DDoS protection capabilities give you total peace of mind, blocking the entire scope of application threats—much more than just the OWASP Top Ten vulnerabilities. And unlike other solutions, WAF-as-a-Service also provides full-spectrum, Layer-3 – 7 DDoS protection, in order to ensure uninterrupted availability of the apps your business depends on. And did we mention that it’s unmetered? That’s right—comprehensive DDoS protection is built in, with no extra charges.

Keep today’s most sophisticated bots out of your apps.

Incredible as it may seem, bots generate more than half of today’s internet traffic. And that includes malicious traffic that seeks to penetrate your applications to launch a wide variety of attacks.

The most advanced malicious bots in use today are increasingly good at mimicking human behavior and are extremely difficult to detect without blocking legitimate user traffic.

Barracuda Advanced Bot Protection is a cloud-based add-on service that uses multiple artificial-intelligence and machine-learning layers to let WAF-as-a-Service detect the most sophisticated bots while letting legitimate application traffic through.
