The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is a complete and powerful security solution for Web applications and Web sites. The Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides award-winning protection against hackers leveraging protocol or application vulnerabilities to instigate data theft, denial of service or defacement of your Web site.
Traditionally, system administrators lock down host computers through a network firewall in order to ensure network security. While a typical network firewall can help restrict traffic to HTTP and HTTPS, as this traffic can contain command exploits leveraging vulnerabilities in the Web application itself. These exploits can result in data leakage, site defacement and other attacks by hackers that compromise both the privacy and integrity of vital data. Businesses of all sizes that operate their own Web applications should ensure that their Web sites are protected against application vulnerabilities.
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides complete protection of Web applications and is designed to enforce policies for both internal and external data security standards, such as Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). At the same time the Barracuda Web Application Firewall 460 and higher models feature a comprehensive set of application delivery capabilities designed to improve the performance, scalability and manageability of today’s most demanding data center infrastructures.
