Brush On Your Defense
Vulnerabilities often subtle and hard to find with hundreds of lines of code to check – a serious data breach is often the first sign that a web application has problems. Online Web-based applications are increasingly at risk from professional hackers who target such applications in order to commit data theft or fraud.
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall quickly protects web servers from data breaches and websites from defacement without administrators waiting for clean code or even knowing how an application works.
Advanced Traffic Management and Acceleration
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall automatically recieves Energize Updateds containing the letest policy, security and attack definitions, to minimize ongoing administraction associated with protecting Websites against application vulernabilities. SSL offloading, SSL acceleration and load balancing are also among the applications delivery capabilities . These capabilities are designed to improve the performance, scability, and mangeability of today's most demanding data center infrastructures.
Powerful Application-Layer Security
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall protects Web sites and Web applications from attackers leveraging protocol or application vulnerabilities to instigate data theft, denial of service, or defacement of an organization’s Web site. Unlike traditional network firewalls or intrusion detection systems that simply pass HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP traffic for Web applications, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall proxies this traffic and inspects it for attacks to insulate Web servers from direct access by hackers.
Comprehensive Website Protection
Unlike intrusion detection systems that only analyze byte patterns, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall terminates HTTP traffic on behalf of the Web server to decode character sets, remove padded spacing, and normalize against common obfuscation techniques. Many applications are vulnerable to such attacks when application developers do not consistently employ secure coding practices.
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall, also provides award-winning protection from all common attacks on Web applications, including SQL injections, cross-site scripting attacks, session tampering and buffer overflows. As a full proxy, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall blocks or cloaks attacks, while preventing sensitive outbound data leakage such as credit card or Social Security numbers. This firewall adaptive security module provides comprehensive security to Web applications by learning the Web application structure or providing an an easy way of confriguring exceptions to confrigured security policies.
