Barracuda named a Challenger in 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls
Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
Campbell, Calif. — (September 20, 2019) — Barracuda, a trusted partner and leading provider for cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as a Challenger in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls.
According to Gartner, “By 2023, more than 30% of public-facing web applications and APIs will be protected by cloud web application and API protection (WAAP) services, which combine distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, bot mitigation, API protection and web application firewalls (WAFs). This is an increase from fewer than 15% today.” 1
Barracuda delivers a web application security platform that protects hosted web applications, secures APIs and mobile apps, defends against bots and DDoS attacks, and enables automation for organizations integrating security into their existing CI/CD processes.
“For the fourth year in row, Barracuda has been recognized in the quadrant, and we believe this supports our vision of providing simplified application security on a proven security platform,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP, Engineering for Data, Network and Application Security, Barracuda. “At Barracuda, we want to remove the complexity and deliver the protection organizations need, especially in their public cloud security strategy against zero-day threats, automated attacks, and more.”
“The solution has been fantastic,” said Zach Peer, Director of Technology, One North. “It’s automatically inspecting incoming requests and blocking malicious ones, but it’s also acting as a load balancer to keep site performance up. What’s more, Barracuda CloudGen WAF is easy to customize, so we can tweak security settings for individual apps, hosting environments, and incoming traffic that we know is either valid or malicious.”
