Barracuda Networks has partnered with Quarri to combine its web application firewall with the Texan security company's secure browser technology.
Barracuda Networks will offer Quarri's Protect On Q (POQ) in version 7.7 of its web application firewall so that users can deploy the firewall as a front-end device for multiple independent web applications. This will enable end-to-end security of web sessions for users, according to the companies.
The two companies said that it will also allow for efficient caching of POQ session information, minimising the amount of traffic between the firewall and the POQ Server. This will mean that users can scale POQ deployments by distributing the load between multiple POQ servers.
Carter McCrary, executive vice president of business development at Quarri, said: “Connecting the client browser and web server security enables organisations to completely control and protect web applications and content from malware and data leakage.
“Partnering with Barracuda to deliver an integrated solution enables organisations to protect their most valuable data in an easy-to-deploy manner.”
Anshuman Singh, product manager at Barracuda Networks, said: “Barracuda is excited to integrate Quarri's technology into our web application firewall. Connecting the client browser and web server security enables organisations to completely control and protect web applications and content from malware and data leakage.”
