Barracuda introduces the first web application firewall for Microsoft Azure

Written by 

The new Web Application Firewall from Barracuda claims to protect web, mobile and API Apps developed on the Azure App Service


The latest solution from security business Barracuda,  Web Application Firewall, claims to be the only web application firewall available in Microsoft Azure that protects web apps, mobile apps, and application program interface (API) apps developed through the Azure App Service.

The solution comes out of Barracuda’s tighter relationship with Microsoft - Barracuda Networks was the first Microsoft Azure Certified Security Solution Provider - and is the only firewall approved by Microsoft for integration into the Azure App Service. The firewall covers dynamic web applications against unwarranted intrusions with layered security in Azure environments, and notably provides protection against attacks through JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and Representation State Transfer (REST).

The solution comes with predefined security templates for web applications and third party packaged applications like Microsoft SharePoint, and due to its close integration with Azure and it’s cloud nature it can dynamically scale to meet application performance and workload requirements.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall in Azure is available from today in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace as part of the Microsoft Azure Certified programme and can be purchased either as an hourly Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) or Bring-Your-Own-License (BYOL) subscriptions.
