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.
“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.”
