Evaluation based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Barracuda, a trusted partner and leading provider for cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as a Challenger in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application and API Security.

According to Gartner, “The web application and API protection market is composed of two main segments: WAAP services and WAAP appliances. Security and risk management leaders should favor WAAP that provides easy-to-consume controls and more specialized protections against advanced bots and evolving API attacks.”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.

“This is the fifth year in row that Barracuda has been named a Challenger, and we believe this continued recognition illustrates our commitment to continually make security easier for our customers,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP of Engineering for Data Protection, Network and Application Security at Barracuda. “At Barracuda, we want to deliver enterprise-level application security with consumer-level ease of use, making it easier for customers to protect their organization from evolving threats like bot attacks, API attacks, supply chain attacks, and more.”

According to a Barracuda customer case study, “Compared to the other solutions we looked at, WAFas-a-Service was very simple to set up and manage,” said Kieron Prince, L&Q’s Cloud and Infrastructure Lead. “I was already budgeting for having to hire another network engineer just to take care of a new firewall appliance, so the SaaS model starts off with a big advantage in terms of cost. And yet, despite being really easy to use, it’s fully capable. It certainly ticked all the boxes on our checklist.”
