Get total application security in five easy steps.

Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service puts you in complete control. Get up and running quickly and easily with a 5-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.

Protect your APIs and mobile apps.

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. API Discovery features use your API definition files to automatically create the required rulesets for the API, reducing admin overhead. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service offers protection for both XML and JSON APIs, including protection against parser and DDoS attacks.

Keep today’s most sophisticated bots out of your apps.

Sophisticated, malicious bots mimic human users to evade standard detection. Blocking legitimate bots, however, can harm your business, so bot defense must both distinguish legitimate from malicious bots, as well as differentiate human users from advanced bots. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service offers Advanced Bot Protection that 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.

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 Ten 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.

Find and remediate vulnerabilities automatically.

Complex deployments, frequent updates to apps, and fast deployment of new apps can easily introduce vulnerabilities. Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service leverages our advanced vulnerability scanner to constantly monitor your entire deployment for vulnerabilities.

When it finds vulnerabilities—even in apps that are still in development—it can remediate them automatically or with a single click. Detailed reporting of vulnerability discovery and remediation helps you demonstrate compliance.
