Barracuda solutions for Amazon Web Services

Protect your AWS infrastructure from threats and attacks


Only 20 percent of attacks target AWS itself.

According to Gartner, the vast majority of attacks target misconfigurations, user errors, and gaps in security that cloud infrastructure providers don’t address.

Secure your apps, network, and email in AWS.

Flexible, powerful, and easy to use, Barracuda security solutions are purpose-built for the cloud, and deliver the advanced features you need for comprehensive security.

Eliminate configuration errors and security gaps.

Go beyond traditional security, by holistically monitoring and remediating your control, data, and management planes to eliminate mis-configurations, user errors, and other vulnerabilities.

Ensure optimal connectivity and operational uptime.

Leverage advanced SD-WAN capabilities to ensure robust connectivity between sites and cloud resources, while using traffic intelligence to prioritize critical traffic and high-throughput connections.

"We’re already very satisfied with the Barracuda solution. As we build a more robust e-commerce presence in AWS, we expect to get even more value from it."

Block cyber-threats of all kinds.

Barracuda CloudGen WAF detects a wide variety of application security flaws, including all OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities and countless zero-hour and advanced threats. It's a non-invasive, cloud-based tool, with no impact on your operations.

Barracuda CloudGen WAF has earned the AWS APN Security Competency, meaning it's been pre-qualified by AWS Solution Architects as a well-designed solution. Its performance-tuning features include SSL offloading, load balancing, and content caching.

Secure workload migration.

Migrating one or more web applications to AWS is likely the first step in your journey to the cloud. Barracuda CloudGen WAF fully secures applications on AWS, making it easier, safer, and more efficient to migrate your workloads to AWS with confidence and peace of mind.

Barracuda CloudGen WAF leverages AWS best practices, including autoscaling capabilities. When deployed in clusters—a standard Reference Architecture for redundancy and scalability—Barracuda CloudGen WAF can automatically scale up or down in real time to match fluctuations in workload demands.

Automate security deployments.

Design security directly into your cloud applications through our REST APIs.

Barracuda CloudGen WAF APIs are publicly available in GitHub and leverage features built into orchestration platforms like Puppet and Ansible without any changes to your application user interface or additional overhead. This streamlines development by removing the additional step of adding security into already-built applications, and it eliminates security vulnerabilities that were inadvertently designed-in.

Secure access to the AWS cloud.

When moving from an on-premises infrastructure to the cloud, securing remote user access is critical. Barracuda CloudGen Firewall for AWS provides VPN clients for both desktop and mobile users, bypassing the security gaps in many devices so that all your users can freely and securely access your mission-critical applications.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall includes the proprietary TINA (Transport Independent Network Architecture) VPN protocol, developed to overcome the limitations of standard IPsec connections. TINA allows the use of TCP, UDP, and ESP for high-speed VPN connections, which improves VPN connectivity and supports transit VPCs.

Build fast. Stay secure.

Barracuda Cloud Security Guardian is an agentless SaaS service that helps you stay secure while building applications in and moving workloads to the public cloud. By continuously evaluating your posture against built-in best IT security practices, it helps avoid compliance violations that can lead to threats and compromise, and can even remediate those violations automatically. Cloud Security Guardian is the first such product to be certified by CIS (Center for Internet Security) and leverages CIS Benchmarks as part of its policy tools.
