Barracuda Networks has announced the release of the new Barracuda Application Delivery Controller (ADC), an integrated solution that combines load balancing, application acceleration, application control, and web application security into a single platform.
The launch marks Barracuda’s official entrance into the Application Delivery Controller space.
The platform is designed for datacentres, with up to 32 x 1GbE ports and up to 8 x 10GbE ports. It secures applications against attacks at both the network and the application layer, including OWASP Top-10 attacks such as SQL injection, cookie tampering, and session hijacking.
“Until now, customers wishing to both secure their applications and optimise performance have faced very high costs and unnecessary complexity,” says Steve Pao, GM Security Business at Barracuda Networks. “The Barracuda ADC integrates advanced load balancing and application security in a single, affordable, high-performance solution to help customers efficiently and securely deliver highly available applications.”
