Barracuda Named “Challenger” in Gartner’s 2021 Magic Quadrant for Web Applications, API Security

Barracuda has been recognized as a “Challenger” in Gartner’s “2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Applications and API Security.” This area includes both WAAP (Web Application & API Protection) services and WAAP appliances that provide “controls and more specialized protections against advanced bots and evolving API attacks.”

Barracuda’s Web Application Security Platform, it was noted, protects hosted Web applications, secures APIs and mobile apps, defends and bots and DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks and promotes automation for integrating security within existing CI/CD (continuous integration / continuous delivery) processes.

The designation is Barracuda’s fifth consecutive year.
