Barracuda Web Application Firewall Provides Security-As-A-Service For Windows Azure

Barracuda Web Application Firewall more deeply integrated within Windows Azure

Campbell, Calif. (July 9, 2013) – Barracuda Networks Inc., a leading provider of security and storage solutions, today announced deeper integration of the Barracuda Web Application Firewall within Windows Azure. The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is one of the first Web Application Firewalls (WAF) available that is integrated into Windows Azure and can be deployed as a single instance or as part of a scalable security platform. This announcement further strengthens the relationship between Microsoft and Barracuda, first announced in February 2013.

As customers accelerate the migration of applications to cloud providers such as Windows Azure, they often overlook application security requirements. The vast majority of successful attacks, including modern application layer risks like SQL injection, application DDos, cross-site scripting and session tampering, target the application layer. Windows Azure provides organizations with a secure cloud infrastructure platform that is augmented by the Barracuda Web Application Firewall to provide customers strong application security within Windows Azure.

"The Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides a security solution for organizations migrating applications to Windows Azure," said Michael Van Bruinisse, VP of Business Development for Barracuda. "The advanced security capabilities of our Web Application Firewall ensure that applications and the associated data are protected from malicious threats."

"Windows Azure is a global, scalable and reliable cloud platform, and Microsoft has focused strongly on keeping customers' data safe and secure," said Karri Alexion-Tiernan, Director, Windows Azure Marketing, Microsoft. "We are excited to support Barracuda's Web Application Firewall in Windows Azure to provide additional security for our joint customers' applications and data."

Security is the new "S" in SaaS and Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides a security-as-a-service capability to ensure applications in the cloud have the same strong security as traditional on-premises applications. This relationship between Barracuda and Microsoft allows Windows Azure developers to confidently secure their cloud applications with the same protection used in security conscious on-premises data centers.
