Web, mobile and API-based applications like Microsoft SharePoint, Magento, WordPress, etc.

Securing AWS Elastic Beanstalk applications

Deploying and monitoring dev/ test environments

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall protects your cloud deployments against advanced application layer attacks. Automated deployment through AWS Marketplace with AWS CloudFormation Templates complete with auto scaling, and bootstrapping capabilities allows you to deploy and secure your applications efficiently. The close integration with AWS services such as Auto Scaling, Amazon CloudWatch and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) ensure that elastically scaling applications are continually protected, while ensuring cost and security effectiveness.

Why Barracuda Web Application Firewall?

  • The Barracuda WAF handles a wide range of security needs in the cloud

Auto Scaling on AWS

Barracuda WAF on AWS builds a multi-tier redundant architecture that independently scales each tier based on your requirements, or automatically scales based on metrics or a customized schedule.

Secure AWS Elastic Beanstalk Applications with the Barracuda Web Application Firewall

AWS Elastic Beanstalk (EB) is a service for deploying infrastructure that orchestrates various AWS services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS), AWS CloudWatch, auto scaling, and Elastic Load Balancers (ELB). The Barracuda Web Application Firewall can be easily deployed in an auto scaling cluster to secure these applications against application attacks. Simply launch the Barracuda Web Application Firewall from the AWS Marketplace CloudFormation Template, point it to the AWS Elastic Beanstalk’s (EB) application’s upstream ELB. The Barracuda WAF stack will bootstrap this configuration and automatically start protecting your EB application. The Barracuda WAF stack will also scale up or down with your application, ensuring complete protection at all times.
