Get comprehensive application security in three easy steps.

Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service puts you in complete control. Get up and running quickly and easily with a 3-step deployment wizard and preconfigured rulesets. Alternatively, take a more hands-on approach by creating, fine-tuning, and applying your own custom rulesets to the specific apps you choose. Either way, WAF-as-a-Service gives you a complete set of features and capabilities to ensure total application security.

Discover and protect your APIs.

Modern applications are increasingly interconnected, exposing more APIs to attacks. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service protects your entire attack surface, including REST APIs and API-based applications. Machine learning-backed API discovery automatically discovers shadow and zombie APIs behind your applications and turns on protection — providing you with unmatched visibility and securing your attack surface. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service protects JSON and GraphQL APIs, including protection against parser and DDoS attacks.

Stop sophisticated bot attacks, including account takeover attacks.

Sophisticated, malicious bots mimic human users to evade standard detection. Blocking legitimate bots, however, can harm your business, so bot defense must not only distinguish legitimate from malicious bots, but also differentiate human users from advanced bots. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service uses machine learning to continually improve its ability to spot and block bad bots and human-mimicking bots — while allowing legitimate human and bot traffic to proceed with minimal impact. One of the most harmful attacks by bots is account takeover. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service offers multi-layered protections against such attacks, with brute-force protection, credential-stuffing detection, and Machine Learning-powered Privileged Account 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 10 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.

Enable DevSecOps teams to move fast, securely.

Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service is built API first. This means that every configuration setting can be managed using APIs and a JSON-based configuration file, allowing for easy automation and management. Leverage pre-built code samples and modules to integrate with popular automation tools for repeatable automated deployments. Push detailed logs to SIEM/SOAR/XDR tools and define automated responses based on live traffic.

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.

security for hybrid deployments with included containerized WAF.

Traditional WAF services can only protect traffic to and from the application to the client — they don’t offer full protection between various parts of the apps. Compromise of one microservice of an app can allow attackers to move laterally quite easily. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service includes a containerized deployment mode where you can deploy the same protections between your microservices, protecting them from intra-app attacks.
