Barracuda Web Application Firewall

Connecting the Barracuda Web Application Firewall to the Barracuda Cloud Control

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda Cloud Control enables administrators to manage, monitor, and configure multiple Barracuda Web Application Firewalls at one time from one console. The same tabbed pages are available on Barracuda Cloud Control for managing all aspects of your Barracuda Web Application Firewall configuration that you see in each individual web interface. In addition, you can create aggregated reports for multiple devices from the Barracuda Cloud Control console. For more information, see Barracuda Cloud Control.

The 'Barracuda Cloud Control' option to connect the WAF(s) for centralized management will be deprecated soon. Contact Barracuda Networks Technical Support if you want to migrate to the WAF Control Center.

  1. If you do not already have an account with Barracuda Networks, see Create a Barracuda Cloud Control Account.
