Hey folks, if you want to learn more about our offerings on Windows Azure, here's your chance. Our own Jeff Johnson and Oliver Wai are over on Channel 9 talking about the Barracuda Web Application Firewall. Click here to watch the segment.
“We have the ability to be the WAF for applications that you migrate from on-premise into the Azure Cloud” ~Oliver Wai
We kick off with Oliver Wai talking about Barracuda and our relationship with Microsoft. He also gives a high-level overview of the Web Application Firewall .. What it does and why it makes a great security solution. Oliver also covers the role of the Barracuda infrastructure in protection against web threats.
Jeff gets into the technical side of things. He shows you how to deploy the WAF, set up your servers and apps, and runs through some best practices.
There's too much in the video for me to list it all here. It's 30-minutes long and you have the options to stream the video, download a video file, or download an mp3 for audio-only.
