Barracuda integrates bot mitigation technology from InfiSecure

By

Cloud security and data protection solutions vendor Barracuda Networks is using advanced bot detection technology from InfiSecure Technologies to expands its bot protection capabilities and enable stronger protection against authomated threats.

The integration adds advanced capabilities to Barracuda’s recently announced Advanced Bot Protection which will be available for both the Barracuda WAF-as-a-Service and Web Application Firewall platforms.

As bots evolve and simulate human behaviour more and more closely, Barracude says bot detection and mitigation strategies must evolve as well – and “low-and-slow bots”, which request data slowly and rotate IP addresses often, require specia fingerprinting techniques to detect.

Barracuda says that combining InfiSecure’s technology with its Global Threat Intelligence Infrastructure’s diverse set of behavioural data points will provide it with WAF powerful capabilities to combat such attacks.

According to Barracuda, every application is different and each offers unique opportunities for bots – and a generic bot detection methodology fails to address the specific bots written for different applications – but InfiSecure’s state-of-the-art machine learning layer provides automatic profiling of each individual application to provide application-specific bot detection and mitigation capabilities and help ensure the highest protection.

“This strategic technology acquisition further strengthens our application security portfolio and our commitment to provide application security to our customers,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP, Engineering of Data Protection, Network and Application Security at Barracuda Networks.

“InfiSecure perfectly complements our recently released Advanced Bot Protection and will bring next-generation capabilities to our WAF-as-a-Service and Web Application Firewall offerings.”
