High-Tech Bridge and Barracuda join efforts to improve web application securityDecember 6, 2016
High-Tech Bridge and Barracuda Networks announce a technology alliance and integration of ImmuniWeb® Web Security Testing Platform with Barracuda’s WAF.
Barracuda Networks Inc. (NYSE: CUDA) and High-Tech Bridge SA announced a technology alliance and integration of High-Tech Bridge’s ImmuniWeb® Web Security Testing Platform and Barracuda’s Web Application Firewall from version 9.0 and above. The integration will allow customers to deploy virtual patching of web application vulnerabilities in just a few clicks.
Chris Ross, Senior VP International Sales, EMEA at Barracuda Networks, comments: “This technology collaboration with High-Tech Bridge enables a richer experience in keeping websites secure for mutual customers. At Barracuda, we pride ourselves in making security simple for our customers and with this functionality we are able to improve security within a few clicks.”
Ilia Kolochenko, High-Tech Bridge’s CEO, says: “We are delighted to join efforts with global cybersecurity leaders, such as Barracuda. We strongly believe that excellence of our common technologies can deliver high value and ROI to clients. More exciting features and benefits are coming soon.”
The Barracuda Web Application Firewall provides protection against data loss, application-layer DDoS, and known and previously unknown zero day application-layer attack modalities. As new types of threats emerge, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall adapts to block them. These definitions are automatically updated and will “virtually patch” automatically on units in the field, securing critical applications at all times. This reduces the time between vulnerability disclosure and vulnerability patching.
ImmuniWeb® Web Security Testing Platform leverages machine-learning technology for intelligent automation of web vulnerability scanning. In combination with human intelligence, it reliably detects all types of web application vulnerabilities, including the most sophisticated ones, and contractually guarantees zero false-positives.
The integration enables ImmuniWeb customers to export vulnerability data into XML format and easily import it into a Barracuda WAF. While customers of Barracuda WAF can import verified vulnerability data from ImmuniWeb for reliable virtual patching without being impacted by false-positives.
