Barracuda Networks today launched the Barracuda Web Site Firewall product line which leverages the capabilities of the award-winning Web Application Controller product line acquired from NetContinuum in September 2007. Targeted at businesses of all sizes requiring Web application security and PCI compliance, the Barracuda Web Site Firewall starts at $4,999.
By harnessing the same powerful protection offered by the Barracuda Web Application Controllers, the Barracuda Web Site Firewall secures Web sites against data theft, denial of service or defacement. As a full proxy, the Barracuda Web Site Firewall blocks or cloaks attacks, such as SQL injections, cross-site scripting attacks or buffer overflows, while preventing outbound sensitive data leakage.
To minimize ongoing administration associated with security, the Barracuda Web Site Firewall automatically receives Energize Updates for the latest policy definitions, security updates and attack definitions. In addition, the Barracuda Web Site Firewall features the same user interface and management framework common to all Barracuda Networks products, including the Barracuda Spam Firewall and Barracuda Web Filter.
The Barracuda Web Site Firewall product line integrates varied degrees of traffic management capabilities, including SSL offloading, hardware-based SSL acceleration and load balancing, which increases both performance and availability of the applications.
In addition to ensuring the integrity and availability of a business’ Web site, the Barracuda Web Site Firewall also enables PCI DSS compliance for mainstream businesses that use their Web site or other Web applications to conduct retail transactions with customers.
