Barracuda recognized in Forrester Wave: Web Application Firewalls, Q1
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.
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.
