IT decision makers often look to analyst reports for information and validation when researching new solutions, so we’re proud to share the news that Barracuda has been recognized as a Strong Performer in “The Forrester Wave™: Web Application Firewalls, Q1 2020.”
Forrester’s detailed analysis of products and services says WAF customers should look for providers that:
- Extend beyond traditional WAF protections
- Offer enriched threat intelligence
- Integrate natively with the software development lifecycle
Barracuda Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects applications, APIs, and mobile app backends against a variety of attacks including the OWASP Top 10, zero-day threats, data leakage, and application-layer denial of service (DoS) attacks. Barracuda WAF and WAF-as-a-Service are part of Barracuda Cloud Application Protection (CAP), a platform that protects web applications wherever they reside – in the cloud, on premises, or hybrid.Barracuda named a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™: Web Application Firewalls, Q1 2020 #ForresterWave #AppSecClick To Tweet
Multiple deployment options
In the Forrester report, Barracuda was cited specifically for offering “a range of deployment options.” Barracuda Web Application Firewall is available as a physical appliance, virtual appliance, public cloud instance, or as-a-Service. The report highlighted our emphasis on cloud solutions, saying: “Given the company’s focus on the CloudGen and SaaS WAF products, customers looking for a public cloud deployment option should consider Barracuda.” 1
We feel this reflects the strong investment we’ve made in cloud-enabled and cloud-delivered solutions designed to fit the different ways resellers and customers are looking to deploy application security.
Applications remain an attractive target for cybercriminals because they provide access to a wealth of data and are often under-protected. At Barracuda, it is our goal to make it easier for customers to keep their applications secure and protect against these evolving threats.
