Sydney, 19 July 2018 – Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security and data protection solutions, today announced that the Barracuda Web Application Firewall (WAF) has been named a Strong Performer in “The Forrester Wave™: Web Application Firewalls, Q2 2018.” The Barracuda WAF was specifically cited for offering “sound attack response and feedback loops.”1 This reflects Barracuda’s unique ability to seamlessly automate the patching process for a continuously robust security posture.
“Applications are consistently targeted because they remain under-secured and are connected to a wealth of data and customer details,” said Hatem Naguib, SVP and GM of Security at Barracuda Networks. “Our goal is to offer comprehensive, enterprise security without complexity. This report reflects the trust that our customers and partners place in our WAF technology to protect their applications.”
The Forrester report states that “continuous updates should keep pace with evolving application technologies and attacks.”1
“Barracuda’s position as a Strong Performer in this Forrester report is an important indicator of where we’re going in the future – optimising our technology for the API-first, hybrid-cloud world that DevOps teams demand to maintain agility,” said Tim Jefferson, VP of Public Cloud, Barracuda.
