The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is a comprehensive web application security platform that secures your apps, defends against bots and DDoS attacks, and accelerates application delivery. It improves overall app performance with built-in application delivery features including SSL offloading, load balancing, and content caching. The Barracuda Web Application Firewall defeats today’s most sophisticated, complex threats with advanced inspection capabilities that do not impact throughput.
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.
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.
