Requirement

This Virtual Appliance requires a 64-bit capable host.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx protects web applications from data breaches. It includes the following features:

  • Provides protection against data loss, application-layer DDoS, and known and previously unknown zero day application-layer attack modalities.
  • Includes strong authentication and access control capabilities that ensure security and privacy by restricting access to sensitive applications or data to authorized users.

For best security, deploy the Barracuda Web Application Firewall behind a firewall and consider limiting access to the admin interface. For more information, refer to the Controlling and Restricting Access section in the Configuring Access to the Barracuda Web Application Firewall article.
