A closer look at Cloud-to-Cloud Backup

Last month we announced that we are rolling out Cloud-to-Cloud Backup, beginning with Office 365. We've been getting some great feedback on it the past few weeks and wanted to provide additional details around what Cloud-to-Cloud Backup is, and why it matters.  In this blog post, we'll take a look at Cloud-to-Cloud Backup and what it can do for you. Cloud-to-Cloud Backup is pretty much what is sounds like:  data in one cloud service is backed up to another cloud.  The most common use case for this involve SaaS apps like Office365 and Salesforce.  Although the infrastructure and software belong to the vendor, the data still belongs to the customer.  Companies often want to make sure that their data is available separately from the vendor's cloud.  This is where cloud to cloud backup … [Read More...]

Securely Delivering Your APIs using the Barracuda Web Application Firewall

This is the third in a three-part series on REST APIs. You can read the entire series here. In the previous posts (here and here) we considered the ascendancy of APIs and the security challenges they pose. In this post, we will examine how the Barracuda Web Application Firewall can help secure REST APIs. Note that the BWAF applies the same industry-leading technology for detecting malicious inputs that are used in protecting web applications. Of course, this includes de-obfuscations, and protocol sanitizations amongst a host of other checks. Many of these also apply equally to AJAX based web applications. Filtering Malicious Data from Untrusted User Inputs in JSON/XML Developers of programming frameworks and bespoke software alike often omit input sanitization from JSON and XML, … [Read More...]
