Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, announces that the Barracuda Web Application Firewall is the first web application firewall solution to be approved by Microsoft for integration into the Azure App Service.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall protects dynamic web applications against unwarranted intrusions with layered security in Azure environments. Most notably, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall will be able to provide protection when traditional security models are challenged by modern web programming techniques, including JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and Representation State Transfer (REST). Barracuda Web Application Firewall will protect three types of Azure Apps – Web Apps, Mobile Apps, and API Apps.
