Web Application & API Protection (WAAP)

Protect all your web apps and APIs with one comprehensive platform.

Barracuda Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) solutions are available as appliances (hardware or virtual) that can be implemented on premises or hosted in the cloud, as a container and through an innovative SaaS solution that combines advanced functionality with ease of deployment and management.

The containerised Barracuda Web Application Firewall can be deployed and managed using the SaaS version, providing the option to use either or both versions based on your needs.

With both deployment models, you get complete application security, including protection for the OWASP Top 10 Web and API threats, zero-day attacks, and many more vulnerabilities and automated threats, along with automatic detection and remediation. Compared to many competing solutions, Barracuda WAF solutions are remarkably simple to deploy, configure, and manage, with capabilities like the Machine Learning-powered Auto Configuration Engine.
Gain comprehensive protection against web app attacks.

Whether it’s a script kiddie attempting their first SQL Injection against your login form or advanced attackers attempting to compromise your app with a zero-day vulnerability, Barracuda Application Protection has you covered. It provides comprehensive protection against the OWASP Top 10 web attacks, zero-day threats, account takeover attacks, and much more with its built-in Smart Signature engine and positive security model.

Real-time attacks need real-time responses. Barracuda Active Threat Intelligence collects threat data from a large, worldwide network of sensors and customer traffic. This data is processed using machine learning in near real-time and pushed out to connected units immediately, allowing for rapid detection of new threats and attackers. Barracuda Active Threat Intelligence also holds the cloud machine-learning layer for Advanced Bot Protection and Auto Configuration Engine. Auto Configuration Engine is a service that reviews all your application traffic from connected units and provides application-specific configuration recommendations, reducing admin overhead.
Stop today’s most advanced, malicious bots.

Hackers are creating sophisticated bots that can mimic human app users to carry out devastating attacks. The challenge is not only to distinguish between legitimate and malicious bots, but also to sort real human users from the most advanced bots.

Barracuda Advanced Bot Protection uses artificial intelligence and machine learning in the cloud to continually improve its ability to spot and block bad bots and human-mimicking “low and slow” bots — while allowing legitimate human and bot traffic to proceed with minimal impact.
Don’t let DDoS attacks bring your business to its knees.

Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks continue to be a serious threat to businesses of all kinds. By making your apps unusable or inaccessible for legitimate users, they can effectively shut down your business operations for a prolonged period of time, which can be immensely costly.

Barracuda WAAP solutions include powerful, full-spectrum DDoS protection. Covering Layer-3 to Layer-7 traffic, and blocking both volumetric and application-based DDoS attacks, this capability ensures that your business-critical applications remain available, accessible, and effective, without the interruptions that DDoS attacks seek to create.

Enable granular access control and secure app delivery.

To ensure that only authorised personnel can access your application backends and data, Barracuda Web Application Firewall solutions integrate with AD, LDAP, and RADIUS, giving you granular control over which users and groups can access what data. They also secure all the services that rely on ADFS. SAML support provides a seamless single-sign-on (SSO) experience across your on-premises and cloud-hosted applications. Two-factor authentication further enhances security through integrations with RSA SecureID, SMS PASSCODE, Duo, and others.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall features a hardened SSL/TLS stack that provides a secure HTTPS front end to your applications. With pre-built templates, you can immediately set up secure TLS ciphers and protocols for standards compliance with ease.
Protect your APIs and mobile apps.

Modern applications are increasingly interconnected, exposing more APIs to attacks. Barracuda Web Application Firewall solutions protect your entire attack surface, including REST APIs and API-based applications. XML protection secures REST and WSDL interfaces against schema and WSDL poisoning. JSON protection scans payloads to ensure that only legitimate requests are allowed through. API Discovery features use your API definition files to automatically create the required rulesets for the API, reducing admin overhead.
