Barracuda Web Application Firewall Launched

Now available in Azure Gallery as part of Microsoft Azure Certified

Barracuda Networks has released Web Application Firewall, version 7.9. This new version extends Microsoft Azure support with automated provisioning and configuration, enabling customers to take advantage of the dynamic, elastic nature of the cloud.
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx is available in the Azure Gallery as part of the new Microsoft Azure Certified program. Barracuda is presenting this new functionality at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference this week in Washington, DC.

“Customers today are looking to reduce time and costs associated with bringing applications online, and having our solutions available as part of the Azure Gallery simplifies the process of migrating those applications to the cloud in a secure fashion,” said Michael Hughes, SVP Worldwide Sales at Barracuda. “For many of our customers, these applications are their business, meaning they have to be available, secure, and provide a great user experience. As one of the first Microsoft Azure Certified partners, we see tremendous opportunity with Microsoft Azure to be able to seamlessly deliver the security, value, and peace of mind to our enterprise customers.”

In addition to the enhanced public cloud support, the new Barracuda Web Application Firewall version 7.9 includes improved reporting and notification, increased application security, and a new infrastructure for templates.

Lastly, Barracuda recently announced virtual license portability, which give customers investment protection and greater deployment flexibility. Virtual license portability offers customers the ability to transfer virtual solutions from a public cloud to their private cloud environment, or between public cloud services – at no additional cost.  This new virtual license portability further simplifies an organization’s migration by enabling hybrid cloud deployments across private and public cloud environments.
