“The Barracuda Web Application Firewall, Barracuda NG Firewall and Barracuda Load Balancer ADC products are designed to help organizations securely deploy hybrid cloud environments,” said Stephen Pao, GM Security, Barracuda. “This expanded offering provides advanced application delivery and extends remote network access to augment the security offerings available on the Windows Azure cloud platform.”

“Microsoft views security as a top priority, and Windows Azure customers benefit from this core focus in our datacenters and our cloud offerings,” said Bob Kelly, corporate vice president, Business Development, Microsoft. “We are excited that Barracuda is expanding its security offerings that run on Windows Azure to help provide additional security for our joint customers’ applications and data.”

Barracuda Web Application Firewall, one of the first web application firewalls and application delivery platforms available on Windows Azure, has gained market traction in securing applications hosted in Windows Azure.
