Protect your web application against OWASP Top 10 attacks, zero-hour threats, data leakage and DDoS attacks with behavior analysis for hacker activity detection and signature-based policy enforcement to detect hacker activity and stop breaches.

Deploy quickly and centrally manageable configurations offer customized network protection in minutes. Administrators can rely on detailed reporting to demonstrate compliance while also providing actionable insights into network security trends.

OWASP Top 10 Attack Protection

Barracuda Web Application Firewall can protect your applications against the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities and prevent costly attacks, blocking most dangerous vulnerabilities in-bound to prevent unauthorized access while scanning outbound for data leakage.

Blocks an extensive list of the OWASP Top 10 risks such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS). Also detects attacks using third-party, possibly compromised scripts like Magecart.

Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service protects all outbound traffic by inspecting it for sensitive information like credit card numbers, U.S. social security numbers and custom patterns to automatically encrypt or mask it without administrator intervention. Barracuda WAF helps administrators comply with industry standards like PCI DSS while helping demonstrate this compliance through built-in reports and Data Loss Prevention (DLP).

Make sure that only authorized users have access to your application backends and data through granular identity management, authentication and two-factor authentication. Integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Active Directory (AD), LDAP, RADIUS and SAML for single sign-on support; secures all servers including those in the cloud for an all-encompassing security solution.

API Discovery

Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) act as an intermediary between the Internet and web servers, inspecting all incoming traffic against predefined rules to detect threats. Furthermore, WAFs offer functionality such as rate limiting, throttling and sanitization in order to reduce attack complexity and protect against DDoS attacks.

CISOs are increasingly prioritizing AI/machine learning capabilities in their WAF solutions, which allows them to shorten detection times without compromising efficacy or needing extra security staff.

Cequence and ESG conducted a survey which revealed that 37% of organizations struggle with getting visibility into their APIs, leaving critical business information vulnerable to criminals and risking exposure to sensitive business partners. API discovery allows developers and security teams to quickly uncover shadow and zombie APIs while prioritizing remediation efforts for prioritized API risks; additionally it can detect abnormal API traffic that signals potential hacking attempts such as increased API usage or traffic from unfamiliar regions.

Advanced Bot Protection

Protect against automated threats that threaten your bottom line – from chargebacks from carding and DDoS to data breaches and scalping. Modern bot defense detects, mitigates and blocks even the most dangerous attacks without CAPTCHAs or restricting legitimate users.

Use behavioral analysis and application context to detect and stop malicious bots and human-mimicking attacks with Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service’s machine learning to quickly identify bad bots while still allowing legitimate traffic through unimpeded.

Barracuda WAF can easily help prevent unapproved access with integrated authentication, authorization and accounting capabilities. Supported authentication protocols include LDAP, RADIUS and SAML for secure identity management as well as two-factor authentication integration with Duo Security, RSA SecureID SMS Passcode Passcode as well as more. Administrators can create, customize and deploy role-based policies easily in order to control access across applications and ensure security for everyone.

Cloud-Connected Security

Web application firewalls (WAFs) protect online applications against attacks aimed at web pages. While not replacing network firewalls entirely, WAFs supplement them by protecting against exploits not blocked by standard network firewalls – such as denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, malware or brute force password attempts.

WAFs come as software packages that can run on any combination of an appliance, virtual machine, cloud-based SaaS system or dedicated server. In some instances, there may be various deployment options or additional services such as content delivery networks bundled in with their WAF service offering.

Imperva’s cloud-based solution includes both a managed firewall and SSL offloader, while StackPath’s WAF is part of an edge service which also provides DDoS mitigation, giving businesses the option of consolidating multiple services into one package rather than having traffic pass through two different providers in order to reach their servers. AppTrana Managed Web Application Firewall was recently awarded with Editors Choice status as it offers full managed WAF, an application scanner CDN bundle as well as 24×7 MSS support to create custom rules with Zero WAF false positive assurance.
