The Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx is a virtual appliance purpose-engineered to stop data theft through vulnerable web applications while optimizing web application performance. Using the same proven technology as the Barracuda Web Application Firewall hardware appliances, this virtual solution scans incoming application traffic to detect and block attacks and scans traffic outbound from the server to stop any transmission of sensitive data such as Social Security and credit card numbers. Simple to use and highly affordable, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx is indispensable for secure, scalable application delivery for virtual environments.
Leading Web Application Security
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx intercepts SQL injection, cross scripting, OS command injection and other sophisticated attacks before being input to web applications. With security that cloaks error messages, cookies and other clues that facilitate attacks, this solution further hardens web application security. Data loss prevention technology actively scans for and blocks or cloaks outgoing Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers, directory data and other confidential information. Integrated with LDAP, RADIUS and other authentication protocols, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx lets administrators customize user access policies for applications like SharePoint, OWA and others.
Optimized Application Delivery
A built-in load balancer optimizes server utilization and maximizes performance. Using layer 7 content switching to route requests quickly to the right servers (content-based traffic forwarding) and with file compression, app acceleration, SSL acceleration, and caching to optimize traffic, application optimization is built in at no extra cost.
Easy to use
It is simple to remotely download and install the Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx in virtual environments. Default policies deliver instant web application security at deployment. A dashboard gives visibility into web app and threat activity. For further ease of use, security policy templates for Oracle, OWA, SharePoint and others simplify administration while Barracuda Energize Updates automatically update firmware and threat profiles. Reverse proxy security, a load balancer, caching, user authentication, data compression, SSL acceleration in one VM appliance simplifies DMZ architecture. Furthermore, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx’s intuitive GUI makes monitoring, management and reporting fast and easy.
