As we mentioned a few days ago, we'll be at the AWS Summit in New York this week to talk about how Barracuda is helping customers securely move their applications and workloads into the public cloud. We'll also be talking about our participation in the Amazon Partner Network and our Barracuda Web Application Firewall (WAF) AWS Security Competency, which we achieved earlier this year.
The AWS Partner Competency Program showcases AWS partners who have demonstrated expertise in specific solution areas. What does the Barracuda WAF AWS Security Competency mean to you?
Barracuda has a history of customer success with the Barracuda WAF on AWS, and has demonstrated that it can support three or more AWS Regions
We have engineered the Barracuda WAF for AWS specifically for optimal performance on the AWS platform (See this post for more information on how we do this)
The Barracuda WAF has passed a rigorous AWS technical assessment (pdf) by the AWS Architect Review Board. This assessment addresses multiple areas, including security, reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization
The Barracuda WAF is designed for the AWS Shared Responsibility model, and meets additional criteria set forth in AWS Security Best Practices (pdf)
In other words, the Barracuda WAF has a track record of technical success and Barracuda has a strong commitment to AWS.
Here's a quick overview of what customers can do with the Barracuda WAF for AWS:
