Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service Isolated Mode ensures your traffic runs through isolated infrastructure, without traffic from any other organizations. This provides the following benefits:
- A dedicated IP address in all deployment locations, not shared with any other organizations.
- The ability to accept traffic on any domain, rather than only for the domains you specify.
- Memory isolation from any other Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service users. While Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service already ensures that no data is ever shared between customers, the memory isolation can be useful for specific compliance situations.
- The ability to configure, with assistance from Barracuda Support, features that are not accessible in the Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service user interface, but are supported by the Barracuda CloudGen Web Application Firewall.
Isolated Mode Eligibility
To be eligible for Isolated Mode, you must:
- Purchase 100 Mbps bandwidth, or more.
- Purchase a Barracuda Premium Support subscription.
- Deploy your applications in a Microsoft Azure region that is not North America and West Europe. For more information, see Understanding Deployment Locations.
If you have purchased less than 100 Mbps of bandwidth, or have not purchased a Premium Support subscription, contact your Barracuda partner or sales representative for information on how to upgrade your account. You will only pay the difference in price for the remainder of your license term.
