Secure critical applications against all attacks with a single solution
Barracuda protects your websites, mobile applications and API’s against the worst application attacks, no matter what form they take. Attacks such as OWASP Top 10, DDoS or bot attacks that use scraping, denial of inventory and credential stuffing are no match for our proven application security solution.

Harness the power of the crowd and machine learning for early detection
Barracuda’s Threat Intelligence Service collects data from thousands of deployments, honeypots and other sources, and distills this into actionable intelligence. Barracuda Advanced Bot Protection combines this threat intelligence with cloud-based machine-learning models to identify and detect almost-human bots and other advanced attackers.
Block bots and advanced attackers without impairing customer experience
Current defence mechanisms like CAPTCHA and IP blocks can be awkward and impair the customer experience. Barracuda learns your application patterns to intelligently block the actual attackers, while letting your legitimate customers experience the application the way you intended.
Barracuda Advanced Bot Protection uses advanced fingerprinting to identify each client, and lets you easily respond with tools like tarpits, timed blocks, autonomous system numbers, data centers, IP reputation and fingerprint-based actions to slow down and block bots.
Gain full visibility into what’s going on with your applications and traffic
The Advanced Analytics Dashboard gives you at-a-glance visibility into traffic patterns and the types of clients who visit your website. A single pane of glass provides you with a birds-eye view of traffic patterns.
Want to get granular? You can drill down into specific applications and see every bot that has visited your website, how often it attacks, how much data has been transferred, helping you make informed decisions on how to protect your digital property.
