We’re proud to share the news that Barracuda Web Application Firewall (WAF) has been named a Strong Performer in “The Forrester Wave™: Web Application Firewalls, Q3 2022.”

Forrester’s detailed analysis of products and services says WAF customers should look for providers that:

  • Allow stakeholders to configure and manage the WAF as they see fit
  • Use threat intelligence to enhance analysis and automate protections
  • Easily integrate everywhere

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.

Intuitive protection

According to Forrester, “Barracuda has the most granular and intuitive anti-data-leakage features that we saw, with a range of out-of-the-box datatypes, the ability to define custom data types, and settings for the number of initial or trailing characters to display. Reporting and rule creation features are strong, if not quite differentiating.” 1

We feel this reflects the strong investment we’ve made in solutions that provide customers with comprehensive, enterprise-grade application security that goes beyond traditional WAF protection.

“Barracuda offers customers the flexibility they need to stay secure, particularly as customers are dealing with a variety of complex dynamics, including protecting remote workers, while helping them stay productive,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP of Data, Network and Application Security, at Barracuda. “We believe the results of this report reinforce the trust our customers have in our WAF technology to meet their evolving application security needs.”
