Application Attack and DDoS Protection
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides robust security against targeted and automated attacks. OWASP Top 10 attacks like SQL Injections and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) are automatically identified and logged. Administrators have the ability to set granular controls on response, allowing them to block, throttle, redirect, or perform a number of other actions.
Advanced DDoS protection capabilities allow administrators to distinguish real users from botnets through the use of heuristic fingerprinting and IP reputation, thereby allowing them to block, throttle, or challenge suspicious traffic. It is the only product in the industry to offer integrated IP reputation intelligence that combines real-time situational insights and historical intelligence to secure against application DDoS using a variety of risk assessment techniques such as application-centric thresholds, protocol checks, session integrity, active and passive client challenges, historical client reputation blacklists, geo-location, and anomalous idle-time detection.
